April 12, 2011 // Franchising.com // Ann Arbor, MI – HOODZ, the nation's largest and most reputable restaurant kitchen exhaust cleaning franchise, has expanded its long list of services that it can provide customers by adding rooftop grease containment solutions manufacturer, DRIPLOC, to its operations.
"The success of HOODZ comes from providing the best resources available to meet the growing needs of our customers," said John Rotche, CEO of HOODZ's parent company, BELFOR Franchise Group. "We are excited to have DRIPLOC joining us because it is one of the most trusted names in the hood cleaning industry and will greatly expand our roof-top services."
DRIPLOC is known for its unique rooftop grease containment system designed to protect restaurant roof-tops from damaging grease buildup. This specialized product is professionally installed onto rooftop exhaust fans, collecting grease with high-performance filters and eliminating its escape.
Grease on rooftops is not only a severe fire hazard it can also cause unnecessary repairs and problems. Rooftop grease can saturate into the roofing materials leading to structural damage from swelling, blistering and cracking. Eventually, leaks can develop and compromise the operations of a restaurant. Also, rain runoff can carry grease with it and contaminate surrounding nature areas.
"Whether you run a restaurant, reception hall, healthcare facility, or elementary school, if you have a commercial kitchen your grease needs to be properly contained," added Rotche. "The state-of-the-art products and services of DRIPLOC, now supported by HOODZ, are unparalleled when addressing the issue of grease."
Along with its line of rooftop grease containment system, DRIPLOC manufactures numerous other products used by hood cleaners nationwide, including exhaust fan hinges, exhaust fan access panels, concrete surface cleaners and super-strong magnets.
