Cleaning behind the filters and time needed.

Question

Hello everyone

When cleaning hoods are we supposed to clean behind the filters? Also do we really need ladders because I am scared of heights.

Also I know someone who can clean a 20' Hood single story, 2 fan system, with filters and a pizza hood duct and fan in under 4 hours by himself. This includes filters and shining. Is this possible?

I'll be honest with you, If you were thinking this industry was a quick buck like you said you're wrong... A lot of investment needs to be done in order to run a legitimate KEC company, a lot more than a ladder, rags and scrappers! Here's my best advice to you, get yourself a KEC training or get hired by a KEC company in order to learn how it's done and than you'll be able to make up your mind about this industry!

My friendship or knowing Ron ********** has nothing to do with this posting but I'll say this I never had any problems with Ron ********** in any way!

Look I am just helping you get your post count up.

I really thought the original post was sarcastic. If not $137.00 for a hood? Yeah that will never work... And yeah quite possibly worst industry to try to make a quick buck... No offense. Are these real questions?

HA HA! Pretty sure somebody somewhere has asked themselves these kind of questions!

Not all the answers can be found with Google!

Fun thread!

How come I was never entered on that drawing?

It was only for a short time and only included new registrants who signed up between 3:40 AM and 10:55 PM on April 5. Now he just needs to send in the entry fee, $19,998.00, in cash to me. And none of that foolishness of cutting a slot in the monitor and dropping the money in the monitor. Sorry, Stephane, but stay tuned, there are more contests one the way.

I know right

We used to paint stainless with that stainless color you can get from HD. If you cant get all the stuff off with the purple cleaner. You know the one that smells nice? You can always paint over it, but make sure you use painters tape so it doesnt get all over everything else

Do you remember powder? A few years ago, I started NFPA, got a few responses, but not near what I expected. I developed a silver powder. That saved so much time. I filled a fire extinguisher with that silver powder used to as a stop leak in radiators. Then I turned on the fan and discharged the powder into the hood. A sided benefit was the radiator stop leak would get into the poor welds in the duct and stop any grease leaks. I charged $147.90 and was in and out in 20 minutes. I could have finished sooner, but helped myself to pie and a glass of milk.

Yes I do remember the overwhelming response you had for NFPA.

The powder was a great idea, and I also remember you telling me that you could reverse the fan by switching the yellow and red wire to get a quick coating on the back sides of the leaking welds and access panels.

Sealing those access panels was always the best since there was really no need to ever open them.

As long as the filters were left in the excess powder would hit the filters and drain into the trough and then into the grease cup Then you were able to reuse it over again on another job.

Very cost effective idea for below and up top. You could also on the uptake collect the excess from the fan bowl as it would drain in the grease collection on the roof.

What ever happened to the reusing of plastic?

Oh the pie and milk was always nice.

My customers would be gone so we would just make some sandwiches, and kick back on the patio with some drinks we helped ourselves from the bar tap.

Good times

Ed from Taxachusist is in charge of the Institute Dedicated to the Reused and Recycling of Plastic. I think he offers a certification class. I had a lady who would leave sandwiches and beer for me when she left. She reminded me of a famous actress. Remember LuLu on Hee Haw? She looked like LuLu, overalls and longsleeved shirt.

I so love me some good satire.

What a welcome relief from the sarcasm, ugliness and general mean spiritness that sometimes sneaks in to these boards.

I never had the previous pleasure of sharing a board with the Dave O dude, but I bet I would like it.

Oh, and one more thing, it's Marshall. Get his name correct please.

I think Ed should expand that certification. He was always good at removing the chunks and reusing, since his hoods never mined sloppy seconds.

Many could benefit from his reusing ways.

Lulu was a mighty funny lady on Hee Haw. I hope her lookalike was the same when it came to feeding you sandwiches and beer.

I always felt sorry for that guy that lived in Barstow. Such a sad place to live, but he had a wonderful family.

I will be in California for a wedding on May 9-12th. I may go hunting for a few,,,,,,,,

Is that Fire Marshall or Fire Marshal with one L. It makes a difference on severity of the infraction and the power in the name. The one with 2 L's is higher than the one with one L. If you ever come across one with 3 L's (which is rare), but you better stay on your toes.

None of these should be confused with Marshall Bruce Mathers III. Notice 2 L's? Oh the power he has in the name.

I think Robert Matthew Van Winkle would have been a good greaser, but he would rather spend his time where it is warm, and flipping million dollar homes.

He’s talking about the famous Ron Marshall who used to cut such a wide, obnoxious, vitriolic swath through the BBSs.

I’m sure that wasn’t an alias.

You have to S C R A P the whole system ... & those prices for a 20' Hood is a lowball to the max. It isnt about cleaning what you see its about quality & standards. I provide a professional service. Charge more the 1st time & the turnaround is smoother & actually profitable.

.

I think you are thinking about Ron Muskrat. Banned from more BBS than even Roger and thankyoumarko, combined. I think Muskrat had to start his own BBS. What are your thoughts, Thad?

do you take the filters down to clean them?

I always thought you were supposed to clean behind the filters. I was always wondering why certain companies can do a job so cheap.

You are right Thad. Safety first. Besides, how can you be a Certified Low-Baller if you take all that time trying to clean what you cannot see? And if the exhaust catches fire, the evidence will burn up anyway.
