Hi Total Clean

I actually wanted to do commercial kitchen exhaust clean.

You know the exhaust over deep friers and gas cook tops.

I have heard that some companies to hot water pressure clean.

Just needed to if anyone here does it and how they do it.

Cheers

I see where you coming from now.

I've heard of this cleaning method using hot pressurized water to clean but unfortunately I don't how effective it is.

Sure someone will come and give you more info on this.

Steam cleaning should also work. I would try the Unilux 3000. It comes with a scrubber that would help loosen up all that grease and grime....

And how many of those scrubber things have you sold to exhaust system cleaners? I have friends that would be glad to try one. If it works, they will write you a recommendation. If it does not, they will tell you. What will sodium hydroxide do to it? What will 200F water to do it? How many PSI will it handle? How long is the handle?

We don't sell the scrubbers seperately; they come as an attachment with the unit. The Unilux 3000 runs off regular household tap water. It is not recommended for use with distilled water. The boiler temp reaches 315 degrees and the has a PSI of 72.
The best thing, I think, about the Unilux 3000 is the lifetime warranty on the boiler-heater element.

Hi DH

Have had a look at Grime Scene. Looks like there is more to it than meets the eye. One of my guys has done it before but he says its quite messy.

How they use to do it was generally Hot water pressure wash, some sort of shield at the bottom of exhaust to prevent splashing of oil all over the kitchen, water vacuums/suctions.

I am not sure about how to clean the vents.

The Aussie guy hasn't contacted me yet.

You need to post exhaust cleaning questions over there. there are only about 6 real pressure washers that have posted here. Of those 6, only 2 or 3 do exhaust work.

Do a search of "In the kitchen". I will admit, a number of us can be rough, especially when new people start to demand all the knowledge some of us have developed over several years.
