A-1 Exhaust Cleaning
Total Quality Restaurant Hood Exhaust Cleaning since 1980


A-1 Air Vent provides hood and exhaust cleaning services that maintain compliance with local fire codes, provide a safe and clean kitchen environment, reduction of odor and excess smoke, potential decrease in insurance cost, and reduction of wear and tear to motors, bearings and fan belts.

Upon Arrival:

  • Courtesy call from the A-1 Route Manager prior to arrival to confirm time of service
  • Walk through with location manager to go over the cleaning services that will be performed. The Route Manager can at this time identify any concerns, or problem areas that may require special consideration

  • The A-1 Crew will hang a plastic around all equipment and appliances and create a plastic channel to capture waste water and chemicals
  • Filters are removed and cleaned
  • Our trained technician will shoot a degreasing chemical foam from above at the rooftop, and from below to catch any remaining build-up in the system
  • If needed, build-up will be scraped out with a pole scraper
  • Steam cleaning and chemical, expertise and sometimes necessary hand scraping will remove all grease and build-up from the exhaust vent, duct work, filters, and fan
  • Once the entire system is cleaned, the Lead Technician will place a sticker showing the date cleaned with his name (per NFPA 96 standards)
  • All plastic is removed
  • The entire hood interior and exterior will be cleaned and polished
  • All cleaned filters and grease catchers will be re-installed
