The BARE METAL STANDARD® Clean Difference

There is a vast difference in how companies clean and maintain kitchen grease exhaust systems. We originally developed BARE METAL STANDARD® kitchen exhaust cleaning service in the 1980’s, as our high standard of a “clean” system. Simply put, when we return your system to bare metal using our proprietary process that ensures no flammable grease residue exists inside your system, then – and only then – do we deem your system clean and fire-safe.

Through the years, BARE METAL STANDARD® kitchen exhaust cleaning service has become our brand standard that defines how we do business. It’s not only reflected in how we clean, but in the professionalism that can be expected from our technicians and the scheduling of facilities that takes away customers’ worries and ensures peace of mind.
