The hood cleaning company we were using went out of business. We found Cleveland Hood Cleaning online and gave them a call. They were very helpful in getting us scheduled and they arrived on time (the last company was always at least half an hour late). They did an excellent job so I will recommend them to my fellow restaurant owners.

We called Cleveland Hood Cleaning late last night as we had a fan in our exhaust system break down. The owner actually answered the phone and offered to come over and take a look. He was able to fix the fan temporarily and recommended a company we could call to fix it permanently in the morning. We went ahead and scheduled quarterly hood cleanings confident they will do a good job.

We have used several hood cleaning companies in the past and have not been happy with the job. Either there was water on the floors, our sinks were filthy or they just did not remove all of the grease. Cleveland Hood Cleaning came in and did a spot on job.

Cleveland Hood Cleaning came out to clean our commercial kitchen exhaust system and did a great job. They arrived on time, worked on the hood inside and on the roof and left with the kitchen looking cleaner than when they got there.

We understand the NFPA 96 cleaning guidelines and stick to the strictest requirements when cleaning our client's kitchens. According to their guidelines, a commercial kitchen cooking equipment should have an exhaust and fire protection system that meets or exceeds their standards.
Your commercial kitchen cooking equipment should be equipped with exhaust and fire protection systems and need to be maintained in conformance with their standards.
The commercial kitchen should clean and inspect the exhaust system frequently and it is recommended you create a schedule.
- Monthly for systems serving solid fuel cooking.
- Quarterly for systems with high-volume operations, for example, a twenty-four-hour restaurant or a restaurant that does a lot of charbroiling or wok cooking.
- Semi-Annually for kitchens serving moderate-volume cooking.
- Annually for kitchens with low-volume cooking. This usually applies to daycare centers, camps, churches, and seasonal businesses.
It is important to stay ahead of the grease that can contaminate your kitchen equipment as well as become a fire hazard.
As a professional company, Cleveland Hood Cleaning will make sure your hoods, grease removal devices, ducts, fans, etc. will be cleaned to the bare metal. We know that we cannot render the fire suppression system inoperable during cleaning, however, there are some fire-extinguishing systems that can be rendered inoperable when service is done by a properly trained and certified person.
We use environmentally friendly chemicals that are non-flammable. We will be sure that the electrical switches and system components are returned to their operable state. We make sure the grease filters are arranged to be sure all exhaust air shall pass through the grease filters.
Before we clean, we will carefully cover your floors to be sure we do no damage to that surface. Using the hottest water and environmentally friendly chemicals we thoroughly wash your kitchen equipment from top to bottom. This will ensure your kitchen equipment will run at its top capacity.
Have you ever walked by a restaurant that fries a ton of food and got the willies because you can smell the grease and it smells foul? As a restaurant owner, you know that place has not been diligent in cleaning and changing out their fry oil. This can lead to a huge fire hazard on the rooftop. As mentioned, we do not only do Akron hood cleaning we can also focus on rooftop grease containment.
Grease can be tricky as it tends to seep into places and stick. With our hands-on professions know it can be extremely hard to get rid of it. Because built-in exhaust fans are there to prevent the gasses produced from oils and fats flowing into the restaurant that only leaves one place for the grease to settle – the roof. Not only will damage your roof, but it can also damage the whole building structure. Then you have to deal with the environmental issue of stormwater runoff into rivers and lakes.
The best answer to this dilemma is to prevent the grease from ever reaching your roof. Our certified professionals can install a system to prevent this from happening. If you want to know more about our Akron hood cleaning services, just visit our ABOUT page.
Who do we service?
Any commercial establishment in Akron with an active kitchen. We have serviced commercial restaurants, daycare centers, churches, hotels, fast-food establishments, and food trucks.
There is an explosion of gourmet food trucks across the country. I'm not sure how many there are in Akron. These awesome establishments are a specialty food restaurant on wheels. There are instructions on the web that tell you how to clean and maintain your truck but that may not meet health code standards. Our professionals will take before and after pictures and certify that your truck was professionally cleaned. Being a kitchen on wheels, there are a lot of nooks and crannies that need attention. You also want to be sure your clientele know you are doing your best to keep your food truck mold and bacteria-free. Nothing is worse than have a patron come back to your truck and in front of a line of people declare they got food poisoning. Then they go into gross detail of their sickness and you see the people slowly walk away.
