This Pasadena restaurant’s hood system had been neglected or gotten improper hood cleaning in the past. There was time to get a full exhaust system cleaning down to bare metal, in order to restore the hood system to proper working condition.
This is a hood system in Pasadena, CA that had not received proper maintenance for some time. It was experiencing non optimal performance from the kitchen exhaust system. Symptoms of this include excessive heat in the kitchen and smoke leaving the hood and entering the dining room.
This was due to a number of factors, but the main culprit was the grease buildup inside of the kitchen exhaust fan.
Grease contamination was causing a reduction in airflow
We cleaned the exhaust fan, allowing for proper operation and increased airflow into the restaurant.
