Cleanliness is an essential factor that attracts customers to your restaurant. Even when your dining area looks picture-perfect, your restaurant won’t look neat without kitchen exhaust hood cleaning.
Though, it most likely won’t directly affect business as customers are not entering the kitchen of your restaurant. Officials have the authority to check your kitchen and give you a notice if it is not up to mark.
The fire marshal of St. Louis and the health department will regularly inspect your kitchen and rank your restaurant accordingly. They can even shut down the restaurant if they find the condition of your kitchen unsatisfactory. One of the main reasons to get a notice for not maintaining your kitchen is the grease stuck on the hood.
Small portions of all dishes cooked and ingredients used to find ways up to your hood. Even if you wipe out the dirt, most of it will be there on the duct and fan of the hood. It will make your hood greasy and grimy, increasing the chances of a fire outbreak.
In such a situation, the fire marshal will ask you to hire a professional kitchen restaurant hood cleaning company to avoid fire.
