Kitchen Extractor Fan and Duct Cleaning

The Oct 2005 Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order came into effect in April 2006. This places the onus on building operators to appoint a responsible person for fire safety and this responsible person needs to have a fire risk assessment carried out. Such a risk assessment should include any kitchen extract system within or passing through a building and should identify fire risks and ways of removing or reducing the risks. Failure to carry out a risk assessment and precautionary actions identified as risk reduction measures could, in the event of injury or death lead to an HSE prosecution of the individual(s) and company responsible.

So, with an Extract System, any body with a staff or custom of more than five people has to, by law, complete a Fire Risk Assessment. A component part of that is a certificate to confirm that their Extract including the Duct has been cleaned by a company 'fit for purpose'. The term 'fit for purpose' is now interpreted as at the very least requiring that the cleaning company should be a member of a reputable trade association and that adheres to the TR/19 standards. To be a member of a trade association the company has to have been trading for at least three years and pass an independent audit for methods and systems.

Similarly, following other types of cleaning, such as a Kitchen Deep Clean, the cleaning company may issue a certificate stating that the work has been done and saying how long it is valid for, and against which standards the cleaning has been completed.

All of our extractor fan and duct cleans can be carried out during kitchen "down time" all vents are removed, de-greased and steam
cleaned to sanitise. inside hoods, ducting and exterior are all thoroughly steam cleaned and de-greased. Of course all work is carried out to TR19 Standards. After every clean we send you a full written report of all of the work carried out with photographic evidence (as part of the TR19 standard) and certification. This report should form the basis of your kitchen fire risk assessment, we hope you'll never need it, but it will prove to your insurance company (in the event of a fire) that you as a business have done everything possible to prevent it..
