Our Philosophy is very simple, make sure that you are properly trained, qualified and certified to clean kitchen grease exhaust systems.

“I Like The 24/7 Network Of Support That I Get As A Member So That I Can Get My Questions Answered By Professional Hood Cleaners When I Need Help… This Alone Is Worth Every Penny!”

According to the NFPA 96 Standards it is now required that you be certified in order to clean kitchen exhaust systems. Up until now, you had to join expensive members only clubs in order to become certified, and you had very little to show for it. But now you have more choices to become certified and to certify your employees to clean kitchen grease exhaust systems.

It is our strong belief here at the Certified Hood & Duct Cleaners Association that every kitchen grease exhaust cleaner should be certified. We feel that the person doing the actual cleaning (crew leader) should be certified, not just the owner of the company.

We keep our members current with the trends in the industry by having continuous lines of communication with our members. Our members have access to a NFPA 96 Technical Code Expert, annual meetings and the ability to be e-mailed any changes in the industry on a moments notice. These lines of communication allow our members to have a direct line of communication with CHDCA.

Our goal is to increase the knowledge of hood and duct cleaners who are operating kitchen grease exhaust cleaning companies while providing value to the certification.

We feel that certification will add credibility to your organization and show the Authorities Having Jurisdiction that you are a properly trained, qualified and certified kitchen exhaust cleaning company.

We invite you to become certified from our organization by taking our exclusive correspondence Certification Only exam for experienced kitchen grease exhaust cleaners and become a Certified Hood & Duct Cleaner. We offer certification based off of the NFPA 96 standards via a 140 question written exam.

We expect before and after photos of every job to be kept by our members. In fact, it is an annual requirement to keep your certification in an active state with the CHDCA. It is taught by our and we expect it from our members as well.
