HARKNESServices offers a filter exchange program so your staff do not have to service your filters in-house any longer. A filter exchange service can save you enough money in labor so it pays for itself!
Benefits of a filter exchange program:

Washing your exhaust system, filters, storage containers, areas around the storage container and other items
can cause environmental problems if wash water is not managed properly. Just like any grease that gets washed to
a storm sewer from the roof, wash water from cleaning equipment can cause environmental problems, if allowed to
enter a storm drain. In addition to grease, this wash water carries cleaning chemicals, which can cause serious
pH or foaming problems.
HARKNESServices has a responsibility to understand and educate our customer on EPA's
"Clean Water Act." This directly impacts cleaning filters onsite. The most common outcome of a large costly
fine, there is also a chance of a 1 year jail term based on the severity of the offense. As of 2016 the EPA
has delegated authority to all government agencies to impose civil fines (Up to $25,000 per incident per day).
HARKNESServices' goal is to insure that we are not only protecting our customers from exposures
and liability like these, but we are also committed to ours and your employees and insuring that they are not being
put at risk of breaking a law. The bottom line is anyone with a cell phone camera can upload a video of someone
they believe is committing an act of water pollution and the government will investigate.
Employing our proprietary cleaning process, HARKNESServices provides direct
and supervised cleaning services and kitchen exhaust management to large,
commercial food service operations.
We also provide facility disinfecting using a surface sanitizer that is listed
as a disinfectant, virucidal, bactericidal, and tuberculocidal. Our processes have
been used against many types of pathogens, bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including:
SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, MRSA, HEP-C, & HIV.
