What Can You Expect from Professional Power Wash?

Once our cleaning session is done, you can expect your cooking facility’s kitchen exhaust system to meet the cleaning requirements and our high standards of the NFPA 96 fire codes. As one of the original PAC-certified cleaning companies around Alberta whose founder worked directly with Phil Ackland to help create the PAC certification program and requirements, we have many years of experience to help make sure your facility gets the thorough cleaning it needs. 

Know that your exhaust ventilation needs will be well taken care of by our qualified and certified staff. With a large company like ours, we are able to look after all our many customers’ cleaning needs in the best way possible. We supply a number of staff to handle the exhaust cleanings for a wide variety of commercial kitchen cleaning sizes, and because we have so many willing and helpful employees, you won’t have to worry about long down times to have your cooking facility’s kitchen exhaust filters, ducts, fans, and canopy sanitized and code compliant. You won’t even need to worry about your next cleaning session as our office staff follow up as certifications expire. Learn more about our service areas.

Keep Your Kitchen Exhaust Certified and Up to the NFPA 96 Fire Codes

Whether you’ve managed many commercial cooking facilities before or are just starting out, you probably know by now that most cities and townships require many different inspections before allowing a cooking facility to open. One inspection that is likely to fail a facility and delay opening is if the exhaust system contains grease buildup. 

If you are in need of professional, certified commercial kitchen exhaust cleaning around Southern Alberta, come to us! We know how to clean kitchen exhaust systems so that they are up to the regional fire department’s required NFPA 96 fire codes. With our expertise, we help reduce fire-causing grease, clean exhaust filters, ducts, and fans, and reduce any existing bacteria.

Another issue we recommend looking out for is seeing if your Certificate of Performance is out of date. If your certificate is out of date, you will need to have the system cleaned by a certified company before inspectors will allow the regular normal operations of your cooking facility. For newly built restaurants in Calgary, inspectors may require an exhaust system cleaning service agreement to be already in place before signing off on the licenses to open.

How often your system needs to be cleaned is dictated by the NFPA 96 fire codes and depends greatly on the type of cooking that is done, the hours of operation, and possibly your insurance requirements or franchise agreements. If it is part of a chain or franchise, you may have an internal policy that requires an increased number of cleanings per year.

Still not sure how often your facility needs to be cleaned? Take a look at the following facts:

  • If you have a wood burning system, it should be cleaned monthly.
  • Fast food restaurants that serve burgers and fries should be cleaned two to four times per year, depending on the volume of grease buildup and hours of operation.
  • A 24-hour restaurant is required to be cleaned four times per year.
  • If your facility uses woks for Chinese or Japanese cooking, it should be cleaned four times a year.
  • Regular all-purpose Western-style restaurants should be cleaned two times per year, depending on the volume of food served and the daily hours of operation.
  • If you have a church or a nursing home without deep fryers or BBQ grills, it will need to be cleaned once per year.
  • Some facilities require an inspection six months after being cleaned to ensure that grease buildup is not beyond the tolerances of a once-per-year cleaning.
  • The AHJ (i.e., the Authority Having Jurisdiction, which is almost always the fire department) ALWAYS has the final say on the minimum frequency that a system has to be cleaned.

What Else Can Professional Cleaning Do for My Cooking Facility?

At Professional Power Wash, we know about a third of all restaurant fires are grease fires. A professional cleaning will reduce the severity of these fires and also eradicate bacteria that can thrive in greasy vent environments.

If left unchecked, the bacteria can spread throughout the kitchen and cause unneeded blemishes on your health inspection report or on reviews in social media apps, which can damage a reputation that may have taken years to build.

To stay looking responsible and professional in the eyes of your patrons, you need to make sure your kitchen exhaust and hood gets cleaned professionally, properly, and to fire code standards by a certified company. However, you don’t need to handle this burden by yourself! We can help give you the peace of mind that you deserve. We are PAC-Qualified and PAC-Certified and know how to professionally clean your kitchen exhaust. We also provide courtesy-after-service follow-up reports after each service. If your facility’s exhaust system needs any modifications to be NFPA 96 fire code compliant, or if there are suggestions on how to improve the results of cleaning, the follow-up report we supply gives you that insight. We can even provide before and after pictures of your exhaust system if you request them so that you can rest easy, knowing that a thorough cleaning has been done.

If you need experienced, professional, and PAC-certified advice on how often your system should be cleaned, contact us.
