Will cleaning my grill create a mess?
Our technicians take great care in keeping the area around the grill clean. We use drop cloths, have our own trash can and carry a vacuum. We also use a steam cleaner, which produces hot heat with a very small amount of water.
Do I need to be home to have my grill cleaned?
Our technicians will give you a 20 to 30 minute heads-up text prior to their arrival. If you cannot meet us, you may provide instructions on how to enter your backyard.
What type of cleaners do you use?
Inside your BBQ we use a high foaming, high pH solution that breaks up grease and gives your grill the cleaning you need without the use of harmful chemicals. Our water based de-greaser breaks down oils, biofilms, grease, proteins and carbohydrate deposits and is 100% Bio-degradable. On the outside of your grill we use a high quality stainless steel polish to give your BBQ an awesome shine.
Will my BBQ look brand new after a cleaning?
You will get a clean BBQ and most of our customers have their expectations exceeded and are blown away with the results of our BBQ cleaning service but no company can truthfully guarantee your grill will look brand new after a cleaning.
Every BBQ is different with several variables that can affect how well your grill will look after a cleaning. For example, depending on age and the quality stainless steel grade used by your BBQ manufacturer there may be deep stains and rust that nothing can remove.
We primarily focus attention on the areas that matter most and including the areas where food comes in contact with your grill. If your grates are rusted we do recommend replacing the grates or our grate restoration service which allows us to dedicate up to 80 minutes using an expensive rust abrasive tool that will leave your grates looking and feeling smooth. In some cases the original shine of stainless steel grates is mostly restored when using our this special tool.
We will scrape, clean and vacuum the bottom of your BBQ box but due to time the bottom area of your BBQ may still contain patches, marks, stains and other other scuffs. For most customers, it is unnecessary to have an entire BBQ detailed in every nook and cranny in areas that come in no contact with your food but if you are interested in this type of service our BBQ restoration services which includes up to 7 hours of deep cleaning may be for you. Please call us to discuss available scheduling for a BBQ restoration cleaning. Alternatively, if a BBQ is cleaned and maintained regularly this allows for quicker cleaning allowing us to perform deeper cleaning in hard to reach areas.
