I'm sure this topic has been covered. I haven't been able to find anything on it though so here i am. I've come into a new service area and have found a lot of roofs caked with really thick grease from the fan bowl. The only way i've been able to get it off is by melting it very little by little. This is extremely time consuming. My caustic soaps barely touch the stuff. Hoodfilters.com recommended "Grease Away" which is used Used to neutralize, break down, and dissolve grease on restaurant rooftops or grease dumpster enclosure areas. Are there any recomendations out there on which chemical to use or methods? I've attached two pictures of the absolute worst roof i've come across. I appreciate any feed back!
Just want some opinions here. I've been using Driploc hinges and other products for awhile now. I recently learned that this company is owned by Hoodz. Hoodz is a national franchise hood cleaning operation for those who don't know. Google their website, and you'll see what I mean. In other words, they are the competition. I know many of you also use Driploc, so the obvious question is: How do you feel about supporting the competition? I personally feel like I'm stuck between a dog and a fire hydrant. Why? Driploc has easy to install products with incredible mark up. You can literally make 100% profit using their products. And yet I can no longer justify helping the competition grow using my money. Their "sister company" is, after all, in the hood cleaning business. Their next competitor, Omnicontainment (Google them too), has (in my opinion) a superior hinge system but at a much higher cost, which I find is very difficult to sell to customers at their price point. The internet being what it is sometimes makes this even more difficult. Some customers will ask why my Omni hinge is $200-$300 when they found one on the internet for far less. They then feel I'm ripping them off, which forces me to go back to Driploc for the cheaper hinge. That is, if I want their business anyways. I myself have difficulty understanding how a piece of metal my welder would make for $50 would have such a high price point, and have even considered coming up with my own design. So I guess I'm looking for your opinion on this. Do any of you support Driploc? Did you know that Hoodz actually owns them? Now that you know, does that change your opinion on using their products? How about Omni? Supporting them is not supporting the competition, but do you have trouble selling at their prices? Also, if anyone could list alternate parts suppliers I would very much appreciate it. So far, Driploc and Omni are the only ones I have found that are somewhat reputable and seem to specialize in our industry needs, and yet their price points are so far apart it's like a Chevette vs a Cadillac. I know this was long winded, so thanks in advance. :)
Greetings Everyone, I recently acquired a Church's Chicken account for kitchen exhaust cleaning. I did the first store a couple of nights ago. They build up a lot of grease fast, although it is pretty soft grease and not hard to remove. For those of you that have done Church's before, how do you do it in such a way that minimizes clean up? Seeing that they have such low hoods, do you cover the floor with plastic, let the waste water flow onto it and suck it up, or do you funnel it into a recepticle? I ask because I believe that we spent too much time cleaning up after ourselves.
It's nomination time. Email your nominee to nobelgreaseprize @ gmail.com along with a short description of why they are a deserving candidate. Stay updated on facebook, Nobel Grease Prize | Facebook, or our page here, Nobel Grease Prize « BIDSLOT.
Hi all my name lee and im from the UK ive been cleaning catering equipment for 20 yrs now using caustic tanks mainly, 2 yrs ago i went into hood/extraction cleaning which has been well let me say very challanging,hospitalised twice ,once in a fire when i was trying to take the motor off but one of the bolts had siezed so i got the blow torch out - bad mistake , and next when i thought it would be a good idea to put caustic soda directly into the tank feeding one of my pressure washers -i now have to lower my standards on the women i meet lol -or pay more 8+(. i would like to know what other chemicals are good on really greasy extractions as caustic is going to be the death of me if i carry on the way i am -thanks lee
