Learning to Clean Like The Pro's

A few years ago, I realized that I didn't really know how to keep my house clean. There were always dishes sitting in the sink, and I couldn't keep up with laundry if my life depended on it. However, a friend of mine suggested working with a professional maid, and so I took her advice. As she worked, I watched her methods, and I learned a lot. This blog is dedicated to my cleaning studies. Here, you will find information on how to clean your house more effectively, so that you can stop wasting time on certain jobs.

Restaurant Tips: Prevent Grease Buildup On Your Kitchen Hood Naturally


You probably know the regulations regarding the cleanliness of your restaurant's kitchen hood and other areas where grease might build up. Having your hood cleaned professionally will be helpful, but there are some preventative tips to help in between cleanings. The following are just a few reasons you should keep your hood clean and a few natural cleaners to help keep grease or grime from building up. 

Keep Your Kitchen Grime-Free

The best thing you can do is make sure the kitchen area is cleaned after someone cooks so that grime does not have a chance to build up. To do that, you should consider natural cleaners. Natural cleaners do not contain strange chemicals, which is great for your customers and their food. Consider the following natural cleaning solutions:

  • Baking SodaThe first cleaner you can try is simply a mixture of 3 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 cup of water. Baking soda is slightly abrasive and should help lift some of the grease residue from your kitchen surfaces. Use a little of this solution on every compartment of the kitchen hood and the surrounding areas that you can reach after you finish cooking. This solution should last for a while and should be cost-effective. 
  • Lemon and VinegarYou can also try to clean with a solution made from the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and 2 cups of water. Both vinegar and lime help break down grime and grease, making it easier to lift dirt from your kitchen surfaces. 

Talk to your kitchen cleaning service specialist, as he or she may have other suggestions to keep your cooking area clean, besides your routine cleaning date.

Why Hood Cleaning Matters

The following are a few reasons you should keep your kitchen hood and its surrounding areas clean:

  • A buildup of grease and grime can attract insects to your kitchen.
  • You might attract mold or mildew should the grime or grease clog up your exhaust system.
  • The buildup could also be a fire hazard. 
  • Bacteria might also make a home in some of the old grease or grime stuck on your kitchen hood or other surface. Some bacteria might expel bad odors in your kitchen not to mention the possible bacterial infection of your restaurant's food. 

As you can see, you should consider talking to a kitchen hood cleaning specialist like Missouri Kitchen Pro's & Pressure Washing to have your restaurant's kitchen evaluated to see how often you should have it cleaned.
