TESTIMONIALS / REVIEWS
We are sure glad we found Madison Pressure Wash on the internet. We need to have our loading docks cleaned and they were very responsive and did an amazing job.
Every time I tried to contact my hood cleaning company I got their voicemail and it would take them at least two days before they called me back. A fellow restauranteur recommended we call Madison Pressure Wash as he was very happy with them. I could not believe they actually answered their phone within two rings. We got on their schedule right away and they did an excellent job.
I manage a kitchen in an assisted living facility. We cook three meals a day for our residents so I was concerned about shutting down the kitchen to have our hoods cleaned. When I called Madison Pressure Wash & Hood Cleaning, they said they would work around our schedule and come in after we finished our last meal of the day. They were so great to work with and did such a great job that we will definitely use them again.
The company we were using to clean our drive-throughs just was not doing a great job. We decided to try these guys. When they were done, I did an extended inspection and was very impressed with the job they did.

Hood Cleaning for your Commercial or Restaurant Kitchen
Madison Pressure Wash Pros not specializes in pressure washing they also specialize in restaurant hood cleaning. Hood cleaning is the process of removing grease and grime build up in the commercial kitchen exhaust system.
Our technicians have been trained to meet the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Code 96 standards. This code is recognized as the cleaning standard in Madison, Wisconsin and all over the United States. Commercial kitchens are found not only in restaurants but schools, cafeterias, hotels, assisted living centers and hospitals.
Are There Indicators That I Should Look for to Schedule a Check-up or Cleaning?
If your restaurant or commercial kitchen has not been on a regularly scheduled cleaning, there are some indicators that you should be aware of:
- You can smell a strong grease odor stemming from the duct work or hood.
- If there is visible grease residue or it is impossible to scrub off the grease when doing a general cleaning.
- You may detect a rattling of the exhaust fan – this could mean a buildup of grease and grime causing the fan to rotate unevenly.
- There is not record of when the hood was cleaned last.
- If you climb to the roof of the commercial kitchen and detect grease stains or grease running down the side of the building after a rain or snowstorm.
How Often Should a Hood Cleaning be Done on Our Commercial Kitchen Exhaust System?
Depending on the frequency you use your exhaust system and the type of fuel you use to cook with will determine how often you should have a professional hood cleaning done. NFPA Code 96 recommends the following guideline:
- Monthly if your commercial kitchen is using solid fuels to cook. These types of fuel include, but are not limited to, wood pellets, charcoal, wood and coal.
- Quarterly for commercial kitchens that have a high-volume operation. Examples of those are restaurants that are open twenty-four hours, wok cooking or charbroiling.
- Semi-annually if the cooking is low volume. For example, a Homeowners Association that may see the exhaust system used two to three times a month.
- Annually for low volume kitchens like day camps, churches or seasonal businesses.
Many of these symptoms may seem minor but it is a good indication that you should have a professional hood cleaning. If there is an accumulation of grease on the roof it can lead to major damage on the roof as well as the possibility of a grease fire.
If the grease is not removed from the rooftop, it can cause the roof to sag and deteriorate which could cause a cave in. In addition to damaging the rooftop, odor will be a problem to those who are outside of the building as well as the attraction of pests.
When a commercial kitchen has a professional hood cleaning performed by Madison Pressure Wash Pros they clean the exhaust system from top to bottom. They clean the hood, the duct that leads to the roof, the filters and the turbine on the roof. They then shine the hood to give it that “like new” appearance.
Before and after pictures will be taken as well as a sticker will be placed on the hood indicating the date the hood was cleaned and when the next recommended hood cleaning should be done. This is important because if there is a surprise inspection by the fire marshal, they will see that the hood was professionally cleaned. This also helps when shopping for insurance because insurance companies like to see that the hood was professionally cleaned.
