In the UK, four out of five kitchen extract systems have never been cleaned. These systems pose a significant fire hazard.
When cooking in the kitchen, the grease laden air rises from the grills, fryers and ovens, passing through hoods to the exhaust ventilation system of the kitchen. Some of the grease and oils stick to the walls of the ductwork. This buildup is flammable and can easily become dangerous if a spark or fire from pans or cookers reaches it.
Prevent this from developing into a dangerous situation with our cleaning services.
According to the BESA TR19 Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems, there are recommended frequencies of cleaning the kitchens’ extract systems based on their usage.
When you book our services, you’ll stay compliant with regulations and recommendations while also keeping your kitchen safe and in top condition.
