Originally founded in Pittsburgh, PA by John Brandon, in the early 1980’s it was purchased by the Nachman family and the company was relocated to Philadelphia and now serves Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
In addition to kitchen exhaust cleaning and minor maintenance, Kensol Airways provides cleaning of HVAC systems, commercial kitchen hood cleaning services, commercial laundry exhaust, kitchen exhaust cleaning equipment and commercial cooking equipment.
