Finding Solutions, Delivering Compliance

Why is it important you maintain your kitchen extract?

Why is it important you maintain your kitchen extract?

The Fire Regulatory Reform Order 2005 states that fire risk assessments should be undertaken for all occupied non-domestic buildings. Grease extraction systems present an increased fire risk to the property due to the presence of grease deposits within the extraction system. The commercial kitchen extraction system should be maintained to minimise the fire risk presented at any time.

TR19® Grease guidance states that kitchen extracts should be cleaned when 200 microns of grease are present within the kitchen extraction system as an average across the remaining ductwork system. Areas in excess of 500 microns of grease require immediate attention. If kitchen extract systems are not maintained correctly then they will present an increased fire risk to the property.

Our kitchen ventilation cleaning service

Our kitchen ventilation cleaning service

One of our specialities is cleaning forgotten out of sight ductwork, it’s very common for extract ducts, filters, and fans to be left for long periods of time without being cleaned. Even if you’re aware of the need to keep them clean, doing so can be difficult and inconvenient, especially without the specialist tools and skills we have at our disposal. Our kitchen extract cleaning process removes grease and fat deposits which tend to build up over time, especially in busy restaurants, pubs, schools, canteens, hospitals, care homes and similar environments.
