Automated Hood Cleaning Technology Launches in Houston
Restaurant Technologies, a provider of cooking oil management and exhaust cleaning solutions for more than 26,000 foodservice providers, has rolled out its newest offering, AutoMist, in Houston, Texas.
Restaurant Technologies’ solution that automates and simplifies the cleaning processes for grill and fryer hoods and flues is now available in Houston.
Almost 11,000 commercial kitchens are damaged by fire annually, according to the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaners Association. With the Restaurant Technologies’ AutoMist system, restaurants minimize fire risk by keeping the hood, flue and fan areas of kitchens clean and free of grease and fat build-up that can catch fire and cause catastrophic damage. Daily automatic cleanings using a special blend of water and detergent stave off grease accumulation over time, helping to keep employees, restaurants and diners safe from potential fire. Restaurants already using AutoMist include McDonald’s franchises, Texas Roadhouse and P.F. Chang’s.
AutoMist relieves operators of having to acquire a third-party vent and hood cleaning service that can be costly, messy, potentially unreliable and disruptive to operators. The AutoMist solution runs daily and employees simply have to dispose of the used solution from a designated bucket into a sink. From an employer's perspective, improved fire safety and simplified processes translate to less downtime, lower risk of equipment damage and a better overall work environment.
