Exhaust Fan Repair
Commercial exhaust fan repair and service has been one of the many services we can provide your restaurant, cafeteria or food service facility. Have you been hearing a strange noise when you turn on your vent hood? Clatter or banging noise? Little to no suction? Typically, when a vent hood and or a exhaust fan repair is needed you will hear a noise or there will be little to no suction accruing. Typically noted, when all the fumes or smoke is not leaving the protected cooking area. This is not only a nuisance for your staff and patrons, it is also a health code violation that could lead to some hefty fines if not remedied promptly.
You see, all vent hoods have a exhaust fan unit, which is typically located outdoors or in a designated area, in which the fumes and smoke can be expelled from your cooking area and release them into the atmosphere or other acceptable areas deemed responsible (please check all building codes). When said symptoms show their ugly head, you can call Ark and ask about our commercial exhaust fan repair services and we can dispatch a trained, qualified technician to your facility. Typically, same day service! And of course, we stock many of the different belts and various components required to fix it right the first time so you can get back to cooking and creating your product sooner.
