Start Hood Cleaning Company

At any given moment, a commercial kitchen is subject to inspection.

Commercial kitchen owners know that their cooking facility success lies in their ability to meet and keep up Federal, State, Fire safety and health standards.

Owners have to contract out their scheduled kitchen hood cleaning to certified hood cleaners. If you are a hard worker, enjoy meeting people and understand the importance of planning, why not start your own hood cleaning business?

As an kitchen hood cleaning business owner, you’ll be responsible for cleaning hoods, ducts, fans and filters.

Also inspecting the kitchen exhaust system make sure that they are up to NFPA 96 Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations & ANSI/IKECA C10 International Fire Code.

Invest in a hot water power washer and nozzle system that will allow you to use both high and low pressure as necessary. Find nozzles that will allow you to adjust the pressure and the spray pattern.

To avoid over-spray, look for pressure washers with a psi of 3,500. Keep in mind that your pressure washer must stand the test of time.

Purchase a van, coveralls, safety gear, buckets, gauges, a grease containment system, hinge kits, pumps, sprayers, guns, toolkit, vacuüm system, mop, cloths, cleaning products, de-greaser, first aid kit, wands, hood stickers invoices and steel toed boots.  This is a basic run down of what will be expected of you to do the job to the right standards.
