WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CLEAN MY INDUSTRIAL HOOD?
The most important reason to clean your industrial hood on a regular basis, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 96 requirements, is to prevent fires in the kitchen. The best way to prevent a fire in your commercial kitchen is to remove the buildup of grease that accumulates in the hood venting system. Kitchen fires cause hundreds of injuries in the United States every year, but these are mostly preventable by properly taking care of all your equipment.
In addition, cleaning your commercial kitchen exhaust system regularly will save you money and keep your equipment working for years to come.
HOW OFTEN DO RESTAURANT HOODS NEED TO BE CLEANED?
Restaurants or residences with commercial grade cooking equipment should have the hoods cleaned every six months if they are doing a moderate amount of cooking during that time. If the establishment is cooking in high volume, open continuously, or using a lot of grease while cooking, the hood should be cleaned every three months.
WHAT DOES THE AVERAGE INDUSTRIAL HOOD CLEANING COST?
Hood cleaning can range from $140-$200 per hour depending on the size of the kitchen and crew needed to clean effectively. Business owners may encounter additional costs if they need more extensive cleaning due to overuse or if they have additional exhaust fans or filters that need to be changed or cleaned as well.

We know that the best prevention of kitchen fires is to maintain the equipment, and as such, we follow all NFPA 96 guidelines for cleaning industrial grade equipment including the following:
-Taking apart and scraping all parts of the system prior to pressure washing
-Cleaning all interior ductwork, hood areas, and fan airflow areas so that they are free of grease buildup
-Checking fan belts
-Cleaning all access panels
-Using special equipment to get grease out of hard to reach spots in the ductwork
-Capturing all waste and debris caught in the hood system and disposing of it according to local waste guidelines

COMMERCIAL HOOD CLEANING (REGULAR AND KOSHER)
The most important service we provide to restaurants is hood cleaning because regular cleaning of the hood and associated ductwork is essential to keeping your property, staff, and customers safe from fires and will allow your equipment to work optimally for its entire lifespan. The problem is that many companies offer more of a hood washing than an actual cleaning, and this is a dangerous and could become costly in the future. NOLA Hood Cleaning is committed to providing a thorough inspection of ductwork, including places where grease can build up without careful notice, and a deep cleaning of your industrial kitchen equipment each time we are dispatched to your business. The experts at NOLA Hood Cleaning abide by all NFPA guidelines as well as local fire codes and are fully licensed and insured. We keep thorough records of the jobs we do, including before and after pictures, and we keep you on a cleaning schedule to ensure that you and your investment remain safe.
NOLA Hood Cleaning also provides kosher hood cleaning for establishments that need it. We ensure that all chemicals and products used on the hood and in the duct system are kosher so that your customers can rest assured that they are staying safe and not coming into contact with prohibited substances while visiting your business.
RESIDENTIAL HOOD CLEANING
Many newly built residences do contain commercial grade kitchen equipment, and as such, these areas should be cleaned professionally. If you are doing a high volume of cooking in your home or have a boutique business, like a home catering company, you need to consider having your hood and ductwork professionally cleaned on a regular basis to ensure your family’s safety as well as to protect your investment. Contact NOLA Hood Cleaning today for a free estimate.
SNAKE CAMERA HOOD INSPECTION
Know you have a problem with your hood but can’t identify the trouble? Have no fear. NOLA Hood Cleaning can use a snake camera to get into even the tiniest crevices of your hood’s duct system to find grease build-up and to identify any issues with the ductwork or the hood system itself. Our expert team will use the latest technology to help you identify the problem quickly and efficiently and repair so that you can get back to business.
HOOD INSTALLATION AND REPAIR
Sometimes even the most advanced equipment breaks down. Perhaps the hood is not clearing away kitchen smoke even when it is on the highest setting or the motor is louder than normal or constantly making noise. Perhaps the buttons are not coming on as they should. Whatever the case, if you find that your industrial hood is not working properly, contact the professionals at NOLA Hood Cleaning. We will do a thorough inspection of your hood and surrounding ductwork to find the issue. We will then repair the part if possible or order new parts for your system if necessary.
NOLA Hood Cleaning can also install your hood system if you are renovating an existing business or starting a new restaurant venture. We also can install hinge kits, access panels, and roof protection systems for grease containment on existing systems as well.
EXHAUST GREASE FILTER CLEANING
At NOLA Hood Cleaning, we understand that all parts of your hood system need to be cleaned thoroughly. This includes your entire exhaust system, from the main equipment line to the rooftop exhaust fan. Not cleaning the entire system can cause a build-up in grease in a particular spot and can cause a fire hazard. To avoid potential danger and loss of life and property, we inspect and clean our clients’ exhaust systems thoroughly.
NOLA Hood Cleaning is committed to providing both our residential and commercial customers with the highest quality of ongoing industrial hood maintenance and repair. Contact us today. We are excited to partner with you to keep your system performing optimally for years to come.
