Okay I go and do a bid in a county that is famous for no inspections. The gentleman wanted his equipment cleaned in the kitchen. Nothing unusual there, well the equipment hasn't been moved in dinosaur years. Any way I go and look at the equipment it is thick and caked and blah blah I know I can clean it. The price was right but the problem was. I could not keep my eyes off the hood system. Why you ask? Well it was just cleaned by a company about 2 weeks ago and the hood was filthy. Oh well the real problem was there was a gap in the filter and Mr curious I had to look. Us greasers always carry our light with us. So I look and the duct is just packed. Hmmm I look at the sticker again. Yep 2 weeks ago. So the cook says that the guys come in and make a mess like always and never go on the roof and jam the wand up the bottom and then usually blow out his fans. They have broken them many times I guess from what he says. My eyes just could not stay away from the hood. I think it just irritated the crap out of me. I am so tired of this taking advantage of customers and not giving them what they pay for. One would be peace of mind that their place won't go up in a ball of flames. I have ran into these stickers before and it was with my buddy who just took over 50 some Mcd's from this same company. Together we have both pretty much gotten rid of 2 companies already by showing and proving unacceptable cleaning practices. Video cameras run down ducts are great after a cleaning. Now to try to figure out who this guy is will be another. I think it is a guy who subcontracts everyone to do hood cleaning, and I mean just hoods LOL. How would you guys deal with this guy? Either way I am going to take him down and his drugged up crews. Would you talk with the fire inspector? Health inspector? Higher AHJ? This cannot go on. These guys are just killing the industry. It just makes me upset when I see this stuff and I see it a lot. Shall I make this comapny number three LOL Bye BYe. The problem is that most don't even use completion stickers so finding who they are is a pain. Needless to say the owner was not thrilled and either was the cook. Just me venting but have any of you moved some competitors out? Any tricks that are legal? Anyone that you would especialy talk to?
