Kitchen extract systems if left un-maintained can lead to the build-up of grease particles or fat/oil droplets in the canopy voids, ductwork and fan - greasy build-ups in extract systems can quickly become a fire risk.
The majority of surveys we perform show that canopies and filters are being cleaned but beyond the canopy, into the ductwork to the fan and beyond are not. This hidden combustible load can become a problem.
The HSE, Insurance guidance and regulations, the regulatory reform fire safety order (2005) and industry standards state that kitchen extract systems should be maintained on a regular basis to minimise this risk. The B&ES guide to good practice : TR19 (Internal cleanliness of ventilation systems) defines how regularly these systems should be cleaned.
Our service operatives clean full extract systems from canopy to exhaust, in-line with the B&ES documentation and upon completion issue a report and certification to satisfy insurers and Environmental Health and Fire Safety Officers.
Keeping Ventilation systems clean should be an important process in the maintenance schedule of a building. Many Health and safety documents state that Ventilation systems should be cleaned to an appropriate level and at suitable intervals. The Site Operatives at All-clean Environmental Services clean ventilation systems in accordance with the B&ES guide to good practice: TR19 and will certificate all works to show compliance.
In addition to Specialist Kitchen ventilation system cleaning we also offer a comprehensive Kitchen Environment and Equipment deep-clean. This can encompass walls, floors, ceiling tiles and any kitchen based catering equipment
Working with Nursing homes, Hotels and other Commercial premises we provide a total cleaning solution to satisfy requirements set out by the environmental health organisation.
