AVDC, a leader in the hood cleaning industry for almost 50 years

We have never seen anything come along with as much impact as this product. Three years ago it was a fabulous concept. Today, it’s the future of hood cleaning.

 

AVDC is a traditional hood cleaning company. We pride ourselves in the details, in always staying at the front of where the industry is going. We always want to do what is best for our customers.

Hood & Filter came to us three years ago. It sounded too good to be true. We began testing it with some of our best customers. And it worked, as advertised. There was a bit of soul searching we had to do there. We go down this road, this product changes everything in this business. It cleans the filters in a very simplistic way. No more soaking the filters. No more scrubbing. Then as a by product to cleaning the filters, it cleans the whole system. Top to bottom. The system itself drives the product to every area that grease is at.

We knew it would change everything about cleaning hoods and cleaning filters.

SPRAY FILTERS ONCE A NIGHT
RINSE ONCE A WEEK
GREASE FALLS RIGHT OFF

 How to Apply Hood & Filter

INSTRUCTIONS: Once a day turn on the vent hood system so that it is pulling air. Leave the filters in place. Spray a fine mist onto the surface of the filters, walking down the line of the system from one end to the other. Just a good general coverage of each filter. Only takes about 2 to 3 seconds per filter. Do not spray the product as a stream, always have the sprayer set to a fine mist.

The vent hood will pull the product into and through the filters, cleaning both the front and back sides. It also pulls the product into and through the system, just as it does the grease. The product is lighter than grease, so it easily reaches any place inside the system where grease is deposited. Including the exhaust fan and the roof, no matter how long the ductwork runs.

TIP: If your facility has ‘more than your average restaurant’ type of grease and you want to make sure to get rid of it, use the following extra step.

EXTRA STEP: When you pull the filters down once a week to rinse, make an extra application into the system while the filters are down and being rinsed. Turn the hood on and apply the product directly towards the openings to the ductwork that leads to the exhaust fan on the roof. Spray for at least 10 seconds into each one (again, as a fine mist). This ‘extra shot’ of product directly into the ductwork once a week makes a tremendous difference for those who have an abundance of grease to deal with.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE GREASE?

Particle Reduction

Particle Reduction is a nanotech process that enables our products to deconstruct organic compounds such as grease, down to the hydrogen, oxygen and carbon atoms that make the grease what it is. Afterward all that is left is the hydrogen, oxygen and carbon atoms that once made up the grease.

These atoms easily return to the environment.
The grease, no longer exists.

All of our products are:
Food Safe . Non-Toxic . Non-Hazardous . Non-Corrosive . Neutral pH . Biodegradable
