Several companies attempted to clean this Colorado system and gave up. Others simply said it was impossible to clean and that the ductwork had to be replaced. The customer tried everyone until he found out Viro was doing work in his city. To his amazements, he was able to save tens of thousands of dollars in replacement costs and simply had his "impossible to clean" system cleaned by the Denver based Viro crew. Parts of the risers above the hoods were almost completely blocked. Here are the pics to enjoy.

With Tim Smith recently passing his IKECA's Inspectors test and becoming our newest CESI( and with Tim having over 25 years experience), that brings the total IKECA CESI staff for Enviromatic to 7 nationwide. The Enviromatic Corp CESI staff are Don Pfleiderer, Mike Gronlund, Tim Smith, Steve Garkinos, Andrew Watson, Joe Houston, and Brien Picha. That is in addition to the 12 CECS staff members.We believe that is one of the most if not the most number of certified inspectors for one company in the country. Proper certifications and training for our staff is critical to Enviromatic continuing being the leader in the kitchen exhaust cleaning industry. No one does it better, period! We are currently undergoing testing all Crew chiefs and Senior Crew members for a minimum of CEST certifications to assure there is a certified staff member on each and every job by this summer. The new IKECA C-10 standards calls for this. NFPA96 also required certified companies performing exhaust system cleanings. We hope all other companies soon follow our lead on the proper certifications.
We believe that the IKECA certification with the annual CEU requirements, periodic renewals, and using a non-profit group for the independent testing is the only true certification. Some certifications can be had by simply take a test and paying for a lifetime certification. The CEU requirements allows members to keep up with industry standards and changes. They put this plainly on the IKECA web site "IKECA certifications provide objective and measurable ways to determine general competency in the standardized practices and standards within the kitchen exhaust cleaning industry."

It has just been announced that Enviromatic Corporation president Don Pfleiderer has been elected to the IKECA Board of Directors. With 39 years of experience in the grease exhaust field, Don brings additional integrity and unmatched experience into the Board of Directors. Not only will Don work hard in representing all IKECA members both large and small, he will work with the entire Board and Association in teaching all IKECA members and their customers what it means to clean to a higher standard.
We hope to see everyone at the RFMA show at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando on March 11th and 12th. Don and Steve will be there a couple days early for those who wish additional meeting time. Viro's booth number is 1212 with a full sizeViroguard setup for everyone to see. In addition to showing off the only complete UL listed rooftop grease containment system in the world (that takes care of both leaking grease AND the wastewater from cleanings) WITHOUT PADS!!, we will also be available to discuss proper kitchen exhaust cleaning programs, our Envirospection national grease duct inspection program, our Enviroleaktest water leaktesting for grease ducts, and other various products and services for your kitchen exhaust systems. With more and more major restaurants, Hotels, and restaurant chains now trusting in VIRO, come and see what we are all about. We are looking forward to another great show and another great year for Viro and our over 6000 customers.
