The Importance of Sourcing a Professional for Kitchen Hood Cleaning
Grease and oils can build up in and around commercial kitchen hoods, increasing the risk of a grease fire. Even excess dust and flour can contribute to poor air quality and dangerous working conditions. While it may be tempting to turn to less expensive contractors, these cheaper companies also deliver inferior results. They can miss key parts of the commercial hood exhaust system, which can lead to a fire and ultimately cost your business more in the form of lost revenue and possible lawsuits.

Types of Commercial Facilities We Service in Philadelphia, PA
Our services can be customized to meet the needs of your unique commercial kitchen, whether you close down services each night or stay open 24/7. We serve kitchens in the following facilities:
- Restaurants: Restaurant managers should rely on professional cleaning services for hoods and all other equipment that comes into contact with food.
- Hotels: Restaurants in hotels and resorts are a reflection of the quality and cleanliness of the entire facility. Therefore, kitchen hoods and other equipment should be cleaned professionally and regularly.
- Hospitals: Compared to hotels and restaurants, hospitals must follow even stricter standards for sanitation. Kitchens in these settings must be kept extra clean at all times.
- Nursing homes: Similar to hospital kitchens, nursing home kitchens must follow higher sanitary standards. Plus, nursing homes house elderly residents who may be sensitive to the detergents, harsh chemicals, and fumes that result from ordinary cleaning. In nursing homes, IMC uses cleaning techniques that take these factors into consideration.
