Your cleaning process is impressive. How do you do it?2019-05-09T00:17:15+00:00

We use a hands-on technique that we have created and mastered for quality and efficiency. Our technique combined with our industry tested chemicals safely and effectively removes all traces or grease, fat and carbon.

Are your chemicals harmful to my countertops or patio?2019-05-09T00:17:36+00:00

Our cleaners are environmentally friendly and bio-degradable, and will not damage your deck, countertops or patio.

Can you make my grill look like new?2019-05-09T00:17:46+00:00

There are many variables that determine how clean your grill can get, to include age, as dirt and debris accumulated and set over time can affect the end-result. Results vary depending on the condition of the grill. However, we do guarantee complete degreasing and cleanliness. The process we use to degrease the grill is powerful and does indeed remove carbon deposits as well. We are confident that you will be happy with the results.

How do I know when it is time to throw a grill away?2019-05-09T00:17:55+00:00

Many customers have assumed that their grill was the worst we have ever cleaned. Upon initial inspection of the grill we can determine if cleaning will salvage the grill. If we proceed with cleaning your grill, we can assure you that your grill is not the worst grill we have seen. The worst grills we see are the grills that we determine are not worth cleaning. In these instances, we alert the customer of our findings and offer suggestions for replacement. Cleaning is usually the best option and the value of our service exceeds the cost of the investment. If there are holes in the structure (firebox or the hood), it is time to consider replacing your barbecue grill.

What if I need spare parts?2019-05-09T00:18:03+00:00

During the cleaning we inspect the grill thoroughly. If we find that parts are needed, we make cost effective suggestions to obtain the parts and advise customers on the best options available. A regular cleaning cycle is the best option for identifying small upgrades or replacement parts to avoid major repairs which can be expensive.

How long will it take to clean my grill?2019-05-09T00:18:13+00:00

We ask our customers to block a 2-Hour window.  Our cleaning technique is designed to complete the cleaning process within a two-hour time frame.  If additional time is needed, we communicate this directly with the customer.  Our cleaning process is professional, efficient, and effective.  We maximize time and deliver quality.

How often should I get my grill cleaned?2020-05-29T00:30:39+00:00

We recommend a professional grill cleaning once every 2-3 months. To assist customers with this effort we have designed membership plan that allows customers low cost monthly investment that allows them to have grills maintained throughout the year. (Click for Details)

What can I do to maintain my grill after you leave?2019-05-09T00:22:47+00:00

This is another question we get asked a lot. There are a few things we recommend you can do in-between cleanings, but no matter how diligent you are, there is no substitute for a professional grill cleaning.  Follow these steps between cleanings and it will have a positive impact in preserving your grill.

  • Keep your grill covered with a grill cover to protect it from the elements when it is not in use.
  • Use a clean grill brush to loosen and remove food particles and debris from the cooking surface.  The debris will drop down into your drip tray.
  • Clean out your drip tray once you have finished cooking.  Not much debris falls into the drip tray per cooking, so this can be accomplished by wiping with a paper towel or damp cloth.  For those customers who use aluminum foil, this is okay, however, the foil needs to be changed out frequently to avoid grease and debris build-up.
  • After grilling, once grill has cooled down, wipe down grates with hot water and Dawn dish soap. This will help loosen the tough baked-on particles.  (Be careful if you have ceramic rods or briquettes, these items should remain dry and free of moisture at all times.  It may be necessary to remove the grates to complete this step.)
  • Wipe down grate with Vinegar/Water Half & Half.  This process removes any bacterial left behind from meats, such as salmonella and other bacteria common in food poisoning.  (Be careful if you have ceramic rods or briquettes, these items should remain dry and free of moisture at all times.  It may be necessary to remove the grates to complete this step.)
  • Wipe the grates down with Pam or a light coat of vegetable oil to help prevent the rust.
