Kitchen Extraction and Ductwork Cleaning
Brooklands Cleaning and Restoration are leading providers of kitchen ductwork and extraction cleaning services throughout the UK.
Kitchen Extraction and Ductwork Cleaning
Cooking in commercial kitchens will over time generate a build up of grease deposits to the internal surfaces of the ventilation system, if the system is not maintained and cleaned correctly it will not operate efficiently causing more strain on the fan and reduce airflow which will result in a build up of thermal energy and greatly increase the risk of a serious fire happening.
We use a range of methods to clean ductwork and extractor systems depending on the surroundings and type of system to be cleaned, some include cleaning by hand, use of steam cleaning equipment and purposely designed specialist chemicals to efficiently de-grease and de-carbonise the whole system from the fan to the filters.
Since the introduction of the TR19, it has now been made into a law that you are required to present a document showing that your kitchen has been cleaned to this standard, this is to be presented to your insurance companies so that in the event of a fire you will not be held accountable.
Insurers require that a fire risk assessment has been carried out and that evidence is available to show that the extraction systems have been inspected or cleaned by a professional contractor at the appropriate intervals, as recommended by HVCA, BSRIA and ABI.
If within your establishment a fire takes place, from areas within your kitchen such as the ducting, and you are not able to provide a TR19 to certify that your kitchen has been cleaned to the correct standard, you will be liable for any persons involved in the fire that have been harmed. This will mean prosecution, loss of business, large fines, and even imprisonment if the damage caused to the persons involved is extensive enough.

Fire damper testing
The inspection and testing of fire dampers in ductwork is a legal requirement, the job of a fire damper is to contain the fire in the fire protected area / section of ducting. It is essential that fire dampers are annually inspected and tested as ductwork is is one of the primary causes of fire spreading in buildings and the damper is there as a safety mechanism to prevent this from happening.
Many UK companies have been incorrectly testing fire dampers CITB has now approved of a training programme which is recognised by the governing bodies, be sure that when you appoint a company to inspect and test your buildings fire dampers that they are sending out a CITB approved inspector as neglecting this regulation can lead to court.
