How long does it take to clean a commercial canopy | Grease Busters FAQs

Many people ask me, how long does it take to clean a commercial kitchen?

Boy, you know, it’s the old classic. How, how long is a piece of string? But as a general rule, you’ve got to remember fellows like Jared up here. We’ve been doing it for years. And we develop a skill or expertise.


How long does it take to clean a commercial canopy?

I remember when I first started, I was incredibly slow, but I, after a period of time, we get to do this quite quickly. This commercial canopy in this blog. Now it should only take two to three hours where it takes a normal person. Double that time to do it. And as the workload gets harder, you get to see some of the more steak houses or Chinese or Indian venues, the degree of residual grease that’s on these canopies , it can be hard work.

There are basically three parts to the clean. The lower canopy is the area that you see. Then there is the plenum which is the area behind the filters. This is the most important and time-consuming area most of the time as it is where most of the hazardous grease is found. The last area is the kitchen exhaust fan on the roof.

And of course, it takes longer. So by that, I balance the degree of residual grease and the size of the canopy with the number of staff that we send to get the job done. So as a general rule, put aside two to three hours, If you start cooking at 10, we come in at 7am and it’s all proportionate.

Say you start at 6:00 AM cooking. We’d come in at 3am. So keep that timeframe in mind when prepping for getting this work done, all I ask is to give us a call and we’ll come out and have a look and I’ll give you an idea of not only the cost, but also the frequent.

Keep this time frame now so you know how long it takes to clean a commercial canopy. I look forward to hearing from you.
