Kitchen hood cleaning can be done both in the home and in commercial settings. However, it is most commonly required in restaurants where constant exposure to cooking vapors, smoke, and splashing grease and sauces can leave a layer of grime that can cause the business to fail inspections. Many insurance companies and fire marshals also require regular exhaust hood cleaning in commercial kitchens.

Cleaning the hood is also important to keep it functioning properly. The hood contains a fan which blows away steam and smoke so it doesn't accumulate in the kitchen or in the dining area. Grease and other buildup can cause the fan to fail.

Kitchen hood cleaning is a job best left to the pros. Professional services don't just use rags, soap, and water. They have specialized equipment and cleaning solutions to remove all of the buildup. They are also educated on fire awareness and hazardous materials as well as local code which is all important to helping you pass your next health inspection.

If it's time for your kitchen to have a deep clean, consider hiring a restaurant hood cleaning service near you. Enter your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with local companies.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does commercial hood cleaning cost?

Most restaurants pay about $400 to $600 for professional hood cleaning. Cleaning a restaurant kitchen hood takes about 3 to 4 hours. Most services charge between $100 and $200 per hour for a two-person crew. You may be able to pay less if you sign up for recurring service with your contractor.

Project costs change based on:

  • Geographic location
  • Building height
  • Hood size
  • Degree of grease buildup
  • Add-on services like appliance cleaning

How often should you clean the hood in your restaurant kitchen?

How often you should clean your hood depends on its use:

  • Fast-food restaurants, 24-hour kitchens: monthly
  • Most restaurants, hotel kitchens: quarterly
  • Pizza restaurants, oven hoods: twice a year
  • Hoods over non-greasy appliances: yearly

These are only estimates. The key is not a regular schedule, but cleanliness that satisfies the NFPA Standard for Ventilation Control. Check with your health inspector on a recommended schedule that matches your kitchen's use.

How does a commercial hood work?

Restaurant hoods prevent fire hazards by sucking smoke and grease out of the kitchen. They're part of a larger ventilation system that replaces the exhaust with clean air to keep the kitchen safe and up to code.

What should I look for when hiring restaurant hood cleaners?

  • Focus on specialists for commercial appliances.
  • Get local recommendations from other restaurants.
  • Ask for references to build trust.
  • Check the license and insurance.
  • Try for contractors who know your health inspector.
  • Look for long-term contracts that include a regular cleaning cadence.
