Wood-Fired Pizza Oven & Smoker Oven Maintenance
If your restaurant uses a pizza or smoker oven, keeping the appliance in top shape is a key task. Chimney Solutions of Indianapolis provides expert wood-fired pizza oven cleaning and commercial smoker oven cleaning for our customers throughout the greater Indianapolis region.
Why Cleaning Is Necessary
Wood-fueled pizza ovens and smoker ovens have many of the same maintenance needs as wood-burning fireplaces and heating stoves. One of the most important parts of maintenance is removing excess creosote to help reduce the chance of a fire.
When wood burns, smoke condenses in the appliance’s flue and turns into creosote. Creosote is highly flammable and is responsible for most of the fires that happen each year in commercial pizza and smoker ovens.
Beyond the danger of fire, a vent system packed with creosote and soot will not be able to draft efficiently and can send smoke and deadly carbon monoxide into the kitchen.
Wood-Fired Pizza Oven Cleaning
When our crew cleans your pizza oven, we have two main focuses:
- Remove creosote and soot
- Do the job in a way that doesn’t cause a big mess or disruption in your kitchen
We use flue-cleaning rods, brushes, whips and solvents along with commercial vacuums to thoroughly clean all types of vent systems connected to wood pizza ovens. This is a job for skilled technicians with proper training in using the equipment and in vent-system technology.
Smoker Oven Cleaning
Our process is essentially the same for smoker oven cleaning. We understand that health inspectors regularly visit restaurants and look closely at the cleanliness of their kitchens, so we keep this in mind from start to finish.
We use tarps and plastic covers to safeguard your entire kitchen during the cleaning process. When we finish a smoker oven cleaning or a pizza oven cleaning, we’ll leave your kitchen in the same sanitary state it was in when we showed up.
Increase Your Oven Performance
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) recommends that restaurants have their wood-fired pizza ovens and smoker ovens inspected once a year. For most restaurants we service, this is an appropriate schedule. However, ovens that receive particularly heavy use may need more frequent inspections.
During an inspection, our technician will cover every area and part of your oven, looking for early signs of damage and malfunction that you may not be able to spot. Even if a pizza or smoker oven appears to be working fine, we may find clues that indicate trouble on the horizon.
Our professionals can recommend the right service to restore safety and top performance to your wood fired pizza oven or smoker oven.
