Is it Friday yet? At TGI's it's always Friday! Burgers and fries are their specialty and their kitchens are busy keeping their customers happy. Filter exchange service keeps kitchen employees happy and safe. Did you know that the single most dangerous cleaning task in a restaurant is removing, cleaning and replacing hood filters? Your people have to climb over hot equipment, grab grease covered sheet metal filters and then climb down without getting hurt. Then they have to handle those grease covered filters to clean them, and then climb over hot equipment to return them to the hood. It sounds crazy to me when Kescor offers a way to do this cheaper than it cost your employee to do it. We have the tools to safely remove and replace hood filters without the need to climb on your equipment, and if God forbid, one of our employees get hurt doing this it will not affect your workers comp experience rating. And if you know anything about your experience rating you do NOT want it to
Breakfast at IHOP is truly happiness. They run a great business and you seldom see an empty store. All this business means they produce a lot of cooking grease. Kescor loves grease and working with IHOP. They understand the need to protect their facilities, their employees and their customers from the hazards of this grease. That is why they choose Grease Containment Units for their rooftops. Grease is acidic and it eats TPO (rooftop membranes). Kescor can install and maintain a grease containment unit for any size or type of fan. Give us a call and let us protect your facility.
Even sushi restaurants need their hoods cleaned quarterly, and their hood filters exchanged weekly. The starch molecules in wok cooked rice bond with grease molecules to form a super sticky grease. This grease is heavy and can quickly clog filters, ductwork and exhaust fans. Just by adding this weight to exhaust fan blades can cause electric bills to rise dramatically and shorten the life of belts and the motors themselves. As much as 20 pounds of weight in grease can be added to fan blades in just a few months. This means fans are spinning slower and hotter, using more energy to turn the motor. And the effect compounds itself. Slower turning fan blades move less air, causing more grease to build up on hood filters. Grease buildup on filters means even slower moving air, and more demand on the exhaust fan. Think about the noise your home vacuum makes when the bag is full. This is the same thing an exhaust fan experiences when the blades are loaded with grease and the hood fil
Pizza restaurants love Kescor's total care, hood and filter exchange budget program. Instead of having a large hood cleaning bill to pay twice a year we create a monthly payment plan so that each month the same amount of money can be set aside to pay for hood cleaning and filter cleaning. Our monthly filter exchange for pizza restaurants is significantly cheaper than the kitchen staff taking the filters down and running them through the dishwasher, plus our filters are 100% clean and breathe. This makes for a cooler kitchen, especially around the 800 degree pizza oven.
Wood fired grills produce that undeniably incredible, mouth watering smell that just makes you think YUM, no matter what is cooking. However they also produce millions of burning embers and creosote. Creosote is the vapor burning or smoldering wood releases that reforms as a tar when cooled. Mixed with grease it forms a new substance that has a very low flash point. Flash point is the lowest temperature at which a substance gives off a flammable vapor, and for this mixture it is 165 degrees fahrenheit. When you cook over an open flame a lot of heat is produced, and so temperatures can quickly exceed 165. This is why restaurants likes Firebirds have their hoods cleaned (at least) monthly and they clean their filters daily. Hood filters must be kept clean and free of grease clogs to prevent heat building up in the exhaust system. Additionally they use special filters, called Spark Arrestors, to prevent large burning embers from entering their exhaust system. As long as people lo
