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

Restaurant Exhaust Cleaning Contractor Negligence #2

This is the cleaning performance sticker from the company that just cleaned this system on 8/6/07 and it is only 9/13/2007 (1 month)

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 where the fan was, but it had to be removed for service. This is a side draft fan that is inside the building ceiling  itself. The fan had major grease buildup on it. It had to be removed to replace the shaft & bearings because of cleaner neglect

These are the fan blades still hooked into the motor. Notice the angle of the shaft

Same fan blades removed to service the bearings and install new shaft.


This is the bad shaft where the bearing wore into the shaft itself

These are the blades of the fan after being cleaned by a professional company

The fan is actually leaking the grease (fuel) into the restaurants ceiling where the servers stand near the dining room

This is the ductwork over the hood.

Notice all of the grease in the system

This is 1 of the 6 access panels through the whole restaurant that were never opened to clean the system properly

This is the result of the ducts being so full, they started leaking throughout the restaurants ceiling

This is also from another duct leaking over the public restroom

Beside repairing the fan the rest of the system was cleaned out.

Luckily this neglect was noticed before the inevitable happened
