Commercial Hood Cleaning Services

We provide fully licensed and insured commercial hood cleaning services for Boston area restaurants, schools, and businesses.


If you run a restaurant or provide food services within your building, you have a lot on your plate when it comes to running efficiently and staying safe and compliant. By law, all Boston food service establishments that prepare cooked foods have to have hood cleanings done on a specific schedule based on volume and cooking equipment.

One Call Ventilation makes it easy for you by providing expert hood cleaning services at the times most convenient for you (twenty-four hours a day) for a fair price. Our business is built on trust and the strong relationships we build with our customers. We take our jobs seriously, and our outstanding work ethic and attention to detail make us the best in the industry.



We start by tarping up your hood and prepare to contain any water and grease. We don’t let water and derby rain down on your floor or equipment.

Manual Scraping

Our technicians will then attack the grease on your rooftop fan, duct, and hood by manually scraping off all the heavy build up.


We then spray a degreasing agent using FOAM TECHNOLOGY.

Grease Removal

Heavy stainless scrub pads are used to remove the rest of the loosened grease.

Clean Up

Everything is then pressure washed, the tarp and debris are removed, and the floor and neighboring equipment is wiped down.

Updated License

Your hood is polished and the required licensed stickers are affixed to the hood.

We Sweat the Details So You Don’t Have To

We offer full digital before and after photos of our services and will even provide free photography of your exhaust system to check on your current cleaning company. Once we have performed your initial hood cleaning, we will follow up with you to schedule future cleanings, giving you one less thing to worry about.

Prevent a restaurant fire in your Boston restaurant with the best commercial hood cleaning services

Fully Licensed and Insured Hood Cleaning

Restaurant Fires: According to figures provided by the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments across America responded to an average of 8,240 structure fires at eating and drinking establishments each year between 2012 and 2016. These fires resulted in two civilian deaths each year on average, along with 115 injuries and $246 million in property damage.

These statistics are frightening to say the least. Here at One Call we know that your hood cleaning isn’t just about what the customers sees shining, it’s also about it being safe and cleaned to prevent a hood fire.

As an owner, what is your responsibility in regards to cleaning the kitchen exhaust system?

Answer: According to NFPA-96 section 4.1.5: “the responsibility for inspection, testing, maintenance, and cleanliness of the ventilation control and fire protection of the commercial cooking operations shall ultimately be that of the owner of the system, provided that this responsibility has not been transferred in written form to a management company or other party.”

In other words, it is the owner’s responsibility to keep that system clean of grease and particulate buildup, and reduce the risk of a fire hazard. An incomplete cleaning performed by a low priced contractor (with most likely inadequate insurance coverage) will not protect the owner from the cost and litigation of a fire.

One Call Ventilation is FULLY LICENSED and INSURED to clean in BOSTON and anywhere in Massachusetts. We are certified by both the Boston Fire Department and the State Fire Marshal.

Let us handle the “due dates”! At One Call we utilize software that alerts us when customers are due for their required cleaning. We know that running a business is time consuming and exhausting. One Call customers can leave the hood cleaning due dates to us. We will contact you 2-3 weeks in advance and get you scheduled so your never expired.

Tools of the Trade

All of our licensed technicians use the best in hood cleaning technology such as magnetic scrapers which magnetize to your duct, scraping it down to bare metal. We use heated foam, a clinging formulation (powerful degreaser), that is designed to remove baked-on grease, carbon, and grime on contact. Foam is sprayed onto your hood, duct and fan and breaks down the grease. Finally, we blast the hood system from top to bottom with high-pressure hot water pressure washers, removing anything that’s left.

What Sets One Call Apart From Other Boston Hood Cleaning Companies?

Our level of expertise. Most cleaning companies just clean hoods, while we INSTALL, REPAIR, DESIGN every facet of the hood and fire system.  We are not just a couple of guys with a pressure washer and degreaser.  When you use One Call your getting real hood experts not just hood cleaners.

Hinge Kit Installation

What’s a hinge kit? And do I need one?

Hinge kits are attached to your rooftop fan to allow access for cleaning. If your fan doesn’t have a hinge kit, then the entire bottom portion (the fans blades) will  never get cleaned. Why is this area important to clean? The blades, typically made from spun aluminum, are not designed to carry the additional load of grease build up on them. In time, this additional burden on your fan will destroy it costing you thousand to replace. Finally, it is required by code. To have a hinge kit failure is a code violation and a fire hazard as flammable grease will continue to collect on the bottom of your fan.

Does One Call install hinge kits? Yes we do, One Call does it all.

ONE CALL; they do it ALL!!! These guys have got to be the most professional down to earth individuals I’ve ever dealt with. I contacted this company to install a hood system for my pizzeria. What we thought was an easy project turned into a nightmare! Scott, Kevin and the rest of the team went out of their way working with the obstacle course the town put us through. No extra charge. No hidden games. These guys always checked in with me; continued to work with my other contractors and town inspectors to make sure installation was done properly. I’d recommend this company to anyone who wants a headache free experience with installation done to all code/regulation standards. You won’t be disappointed!!! Thanks guys!

Neko Salameh, Restaurant Owner

I want to keep this short and to the point….These 2 individuals that came to my restaurant this past Monday at Maekha Thai could not have been any more professional, personable, just so caring about the end result of the work they were performing. They treated this as if it were their own restaurant and made sure through the whole process that I was given the details needed to understand what they were doing and why!!! Scott, I believe may be the owner, not sure, but everyone in the front office needs to be aware that as an employer myself you really are fortunate to have these 2 as a team effort…WOW!! Anyone looking for great work, good attitudes, cleaning up after the work is done this is your company to deal with. Over and Out…Roger, Wilko!!

Chef Lou, Maekha Thai, Revere, MA

One Call has installed hoods in all six of our restaurants in a very professional and timely manner. I highly recommend Scott and his team to for your ventilation needs.

John Cabot, Restaurant Owner

Great service! Vico Ristorante Italiano

Maria Loffredo, Vico Ristorante Italiano, Norwood, MA

I’ve been in restaurant business for over 20, one call ventilation is by far the best company we have used. They do it all, repairs in the middle of the night and do cleanings. Our hoods have never been cleaner, the go to the roof rain or shine. I would recommend them to anyone, having a hood system.

Sam Degan, Restaurant Owner

I do not leave many reviews, but when I do it is because I have found a company I can trust and rely upon. I just completed a commercial kitchen build out and it would not have been possible without the expertise of Scott and his team at One Call Ventilation. These guys helped engineer, fabricate, and install a very impressive system. We were faced with many challenges both structurally and through the permitting process. I gotta tell you, these guys went above and beyond the call of duty! I am grateful for choosing One Call Ventilation. I look forward to my next build out with these guys!

Luke Kenney, Restaurant Owner

Aaron Myette, Restaurant Owner

Great company, pricing is good, customer service is fantastic, very helpful, knowledgeable and overall great company, the owner Scott really cares about his business and his customers, highly recommend!

Anwar Ace, Restaurant Owner

Customer service is not dead! Even better than the job they do is the service they provide. Restaurant managers don’t have time to stress about preventative maintenance more than they have to. Literally, one call and it’s all set. Follow up, reminder calls… one less thing I have to worry about.
