OVERVIEW


The heavy build up of deposits from grease inside of ducting extraction systems can cause a fire if not regularly cleaned to the regulated standards also leading to poor quality cooked foods.  This is the No1 reason in the UK for fires in commercial kitchens as a fire can be ignited from the slightest of flame from the canopy and overheating of the oily fats and deposits in the ducting.


A certificate of "Kitchen Extract Cleaning" to the TR/19 standard from a reputable company is a requirement in order for managers and owners of commercial kitchen premises to keep their building insurance valid. Should the inevitable happen and upon inspection a duct system was found to be neglected of such maintenance standards, insurances are void.

BUILD UP OF GREASE


Technical guidance document 

No matter how efficient your canopy filters are at trapping grease particles, grease deposits will start to build up within the kitchen extraction system. If you don’t undertake duct cleaning on a regular basis, over time the grease will become baked on and carbonized. This can be extremely difficult to remove, thus reducing the effectiveness of the extraction system, shortening the fan’s life as it works harder to extract air and creating a serious fire hazard within the kitchen. In addition bacteria will develop in the fatty moist deposits, this is hazardous to health and a food source for cockroaches.



FIRE SAFETY

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 stipulates that by law a fire risk assessment should be undertaken. This requires the building’s owner or workplace manger to delegate a responsible person to identifying all possible sources of fire and eliminate, or at least minimize the risk to the buildings occupants. Regular kitchen extraction cleaning will remove one of the most common causes of fire within the kitchen. We are increasingly seeing evidence that failure to clean your system by a professional accredited kitchen extraction cleaning company is invalidating insurance policies after fires. Regular kitchen extraction cleaning is imperative to ensure the safety of the building and that occupants are not at risk from a fire caused by grease build up in the extraction system.



Duct Cleaning Certificate

After undertaking the cleaning,our Management site report will be entered onto our extraction management database to ensure an accurate log of your cleaning history, together with the details from each service visit and a photographic archive that is stored on our Systems. On completion we’ll provide you with a comprehensive post clean report and schedule of works and certification. This is acceptable to environmental health inspections, fire regulations and insurance companies as evidence to show you’ve taken action to minimize the fire risks from the build up of grease in your commercial extraction system. If required we can also provide you with photographs for your personal filing.
