Neglected Restaurant Exhaust System: Duct, Vent, Fan, Plenum, Hood Images

Restaurant Exhaust Cleaning Contractor Negligence #1

This is the cleaning performance sticker from the company that just cleaned this system on 9/7/2007 and it is only 1/9/2008 (4 months)

This is no where near enough time for this much buildup in a system like what you are about to see

(The company name is withheld for legal reasons)


Image of a restaurant hood cleaning contractor neglecting fan

This is the neglected fan and the bowl. The blades were spinning in their own filth enough to throw grease over the bowl edge.

The grease box is missing, found full around the corner, and not hooked back up to the fan

This is the bottom of the fan

You will notice they attempted to clean the fan where the spray marks are

This is the plenum area that was missed, and you will notice all of the buildup and clogged fire suppression nozzles
