Filter Exchange Services

Keep grease out of the ocean!
Reduce the risk of fire!
Uphold FOG best practices!

Grease filters are critical components of commercial exhaust systems. They play major roles in maintaining good air quality and reducing the risk of fire.

To work optimally, grease must not be allowed to build up outside or within the filters. To keep them free of grease, filters must be cleaned properly (inside and out) and on a regular basis.

FilterShine Jacksonville's FOGBMP-certified technicians will make sure your grease-laden filters are removed and replaced with clean, well-maintained filters made of stainless-steel. Our service techs will take your greasy filters off-site where they will be professionally cleaned inside and out.

Because cleaning takes place off-site, you can reduce the amount of grease down your drain by up to 70%.

Comparative Analysis

Cleaning by restaurant staff
FilterShine exchange service

Because kitchen exhaust filters have a baffle design, they require specialized equipment to clean them inside and out.

Commercial kitchens do not have the proper equipment for such cleaning. Therefore, the filters may look clean on the outside, but grease remains on the inside.

FilterShine has all of the specialized equipment to thoroughly clean open-sided, offset honeycomb shaped filters inside and out.

The typical commercial kitchen needs their filters cleaned two times per week. This takes about 5 hours of labor at the kitchen's going rate. This cost can add up quickly.

FilterShine's insured and FOGBMP-certified service technicians will replace the grease-laden filters with clean ones. This allows you to stay focused on your business and serving your customers.

When commercial kitchens attempt to clean filters on-site, they must soak the filters in water and expensive caustic degreaser.

When FilerShine properly cleans soiled filters, they are soaked, cleaned and serviced at an off-site FilterShine facility.

    Problems with cleaning grease filters in the dishwasher:
  • only the outside of the filters are cleaned
  • dishwasher warranty may be voided
  • violates health code

FilterShine cleans and services filters off-site, so you don't have to worry about the effects of cleaning them at your location.

When commercial kitchens clean their own filters, this results in a lot of grease going down the drain and into grease traps.

Studies have shown that up to 70% of the grease in grease traps is from on-site filter cleaning.

0% of grease going down your drains is from on-site filter cleaning.

Allowing employees to climb or reach over hot equipment to remove filters is a direct violation of OSHA standards.

When injury occurs from such activity, Workman's compensation claims must be filed.

FilterShine service techs remove and exchange all dirty filters so your employees do not have to risk injury.

Commercial kitchens are not equipped to clean and service their own filters.

    Therefore, they may find themselves in violation of Health Department and Fire Marshall requirements when filters are:
  • not properly cleaned
  • missing baffles
  • not in good repair

When FilterShine cleans and services kitchen filters, this eliminates the risks associated with poorly cleaned and maintained filters.

FilterShine replaces all dirty filters with all stainless steel filters in 100% working order.

When filters are cleaned on-site, grease and caustic water ends up in areas that do not go to grease traps.
