The Thanksgiving holiday is all about cooking, eating, and getting together with friends and family. However, studies show that an estimated 14 million people dine out on Thanksgiving. An additional 16 million people order take out to supplement their meals at home. With this increased surge in food preparation and service, it is critical to rid commercial kitchens of the accumulated grease and oil build up that is the primary cause of kitchen fires. Kitchen exhaust cleaning, also known as hood cleaning, removes the grease that has accumulated inside ducts, hoods, fans and vents of commercial kitchens. Therefore, Thanksgiving Time means it’s time to clean your hood!
Popular air pollution terms such as smog, ozone, and carbon dioxide are commonly mistaken as the main culprit for health concerns. Studies show that we spend up to 90% of our time indoors: sleeping, working, cooking, watching television – we even often work out and exercise at an indoor gym! It should come as no surprise that the indoor air quality is just as important, if not more, than the outdoor air quality we encounter on a day-to-day basis.

When any structure is left vacant for a period of time, there is a higher risk of property damage. While the first concern to cross one’s mind is an unauthorized intruder, the most common intruder is much more unsuspecting: water. Every year, leaking pipes and appliances cause millions of dollars worth of property damage. Continue reading

The kitchen is the core of any food establishment. When the kitchen is not running efficiently or safely, it will compromise production, quality, and the diminish revenues. The International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKECA) has created a standard on inspections for grease build-up in a commercial kitchen exhaust hood. The reason why those standards have been implemented is because of the negative and harmful results that commonly occur when they are not followed. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for kitchens to have an air system that is completely out of balance. Routine inspections of the exhaust hoods are just one component to maintaining proper ventilation and airflow within the kitchen walls. Continue reading
Airtek Indoor Air Solutions is fully licensed, trained, and insured to carry out maritime services for ships and other vessels. Recently, Airtek effectively completed a marine duct cleaning project for the United States Navy aboard the USS Somerset.
Airtek Indoor Air Solutions frequently works with mechanical contractors on large projects to ensure that HVAC leaks are sealed properly. During a major air duct cleaning project a few years ago at the University of California, San Diego, Airtek worked closely with a mechanical contractor as well as a sub-contractor who trailed behind to re-seal the ducts after the cleaning was completed. It became evident that these services go hand-in-hand.
