Kitchen exhaust cleaning industry news is virtually invisible unless that is, services are either not performed properly or at all. Every year, commercial kitchen fires that do make the news are the cause of millions of dollars of damage. What makes this industry so unique is that there can be a life and death difference. Kitchen duct cleaning is directly tied to fire, health and safety. If commercial kitchens are not properly and regularly maintained and serviced, the risk of a kitchen fire increases dramatically.

The industry is finding itself at a turning point, with innovations like Shepherd Filters coming to the market and improving kitchen hood cleanliness in an environmentally friendly way as well as reducing the risk of fire.
