Yes, Centex is fully insured with liability, worker's compensation for our employees, and vehicle coverage on all company vehicles. We will be happy give you proof of insurance and can arrange for your business to be listed as an additional insured on our policy if required.
By the way, business and property owners need to be wary of companies that offer rock bottom prices far below their competitors. Many times the reason the price is so low is because these companies cut corners on important business practices such as adequate insurance coverage. You should require written proof of current insurance for all service contractors who do work on your property. If you take someone's word that they have insurance and find out later that they don't, you can be left holding the bag in case of an accident or injury.

A: our company values state that we won't sacrifice quality service for a cheaper price. Remember that cheaper is not always better. Our prices are competitive with other reputable companies in our area. But when looking at cost, you have to evaluate overall value and make sure you are comparing “apples to apples”. Other companies might quote you a much cheaper price, but they might not be cleaning the entire system from top to bottom or making sure that all surfaces are cleaned down to bare metal per industry standards. Some companies only clean the parts of the system that you can see and stop there. A cheaper price might mean that they cut corners on training, professional quality equipment and adequate insurance coverage.
Over the years we have seen hood systems that are being done at a lower price by another company, but when we look at the whole system, sometimes we find that only part of it is actually being cleaned. The hood might look OK, but the ducts and the fans on the rooftop – the places you can’t see – are coated in heavy layers of grease. This creates a serious fire hazard that puts your entire operation in danger. A greasy, dirty exhaust system does not operate at top efficiency, puts stress on the system, and costs you more money in the long run if you have to replace this expensive equipment.
After years of not being cleaned down to bare metal with each service, the grease becomes baked on and takes a lot longer to remove. Once the system is cleaned properly from top to bottom, it can be easily maintained at regular intervals to insure adequate fire protection and peak operating efficiency. For this reason, if a system has not been cleaned for a long time, we quote you a first time cleaning price and then offer a lower price to clean the system on a regular maintenance schedule.
At Centex, we base our reputation on providing professional services that meet all industry standards. You can trust that our company will clean your exhaust system according to the recommendations from the National Fire Protection Association, Code 96, which sets national standards for the cleaning of commercial kitchen exhaust systems. And we provide before and after pictures of each service to show that the job is done right. Then we keep your exhaust system in top shape with regular service.

We’ll take a look from top to bottom, including the parts you can't see and give you an accurate report on condition, complete with photos.

The regular cleaning of hoods, ducts, and exhaust fans will keep your commercial kitchen fire safe, sanitary, and operating at peak performance every day. Centex customers are placed on the regular maintenance schedule that is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association, Code 96*, which establishes standards for the pressure washing industry. Read a brief summary of Code 96 guidelines and issues.
The NFPA guidelines are categorized by the type of cooking done and the volume range from low to high. Here are the guidelines from the NFPA:
Frequency of Cleaning
|Systems serving solid fuel cooking operations.||Systems serving high-volume operations, such as 24 hour cooking, charbroiling or wok cooking.||Systems serving moderate-volume cooking operations.||Systems serving low-volume cooking operations, such as churches, day camps, seasonable businesses or senior centers.|
* Professional standards for the cleaning of Kitchen Exhaust Systems are found at the National Fire Protection Association, Code 96: Standard for Ventilation Control and Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. This standard provides the minimum fire safety requirements, both preventative and operative, related to the design, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of all public and private cooking operations.
Yes, preventative maintenance might look expensive at first glance, but in the long run there are REAL ADVANTAGES to pressure washing your hoods and ducts on a regular basis. Here are some factors to keep in mind:
- FIRE SAFETY - excessive build up of grease in the hood and duct system poses a fire danger that has the potential to cause extensive damage to the kitchen, roof and building, not to mention the risk of danger to your staff and customers. Cleanup and recovery from a kitchen fire can shut down your entire operation for an extended period of time and impact your bottom line in a big way. Regular maintenance gives you peace of mind that your hoods and ducts are fire safe and meet industry standards. Centex Pressure Washing Service cleans your entire exhaust system down to bare metal as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association, Code 96. Read more about Code 96.
- SANITATION – it is important that hood filters are kept clean so that grease does not drip down into the cooking line. Dirty filters prevent the free flow of air in the exhaust system which decreases overall efficiency and circulates air borne grease throughout the kitchen.
- WEAR AND TEAR ON EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT – your kitchen exhaust system represents a significant investment in your business. Excessive grease build up in fans, hoods and vents puts undue strain on this equipment. Regular maintenance will keep your system operating at peak efficiency, reduce wear and tear on the equipment, thereby protecting your investment in the long run.
- REGULAR INSPECTION OF THE SYSTEM – some companies only clean the parts of the hood and ducts that you can see, leaving a grimy mess on the roof or in the ducts that are hidden to view. Our company services your entire system from top to bottom, and we guarantee that it is cleaned down to bare metal, even the parts that you can’t see. You can rest assured that your system is clean as a whistle and ready for business.
- AFTER SERVICE REPORT WITH PHOTOS – Every Centex customer receives an After Service Report that notes the condition of your system and suggests needed repairs. Date-stamped before and after photos are available upon request.
You can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your hood and duct system is fire safe, sanitary, operating at top efficiency and regularly inspected from top to bottom by knowledgeable professionals who are committed to the highest standards in the pressure washing industry. Let our 30+ years of experience go to work for you today.
