A dirty kitchen extract system presents a variety of problems, ranging from hygiene issues to a very serious fire risk. That’s why Coastal Kitchen Cleans provides professional kitchen extract cleaning services for commercial clients throughout Hastings, East Sussex, and the surrounding areas.
Kitchen extract systems have an increased fire, odour, vermin and hygiene risk compared to general supply and extract systems. This is due to the grease build up and general deposits of cooking oils acting as a potential ignition source.
The Health and Safety Executive in conjunction with The Association of British Insurers and BSRIA stipulate that kitchen extract systems should be kept clean to minimise fire and other risks. The frequency of cleaning will depend on the level of system usage and the types and quantity of cooking.
Coastal Kitchen Cleans offers regular testing and cleaning of your kitchen extract system. A Certificate of Cleanliness alone is not adequate verification of a system clean. A post clean verification report is required to serve as evidence of system cleanliness to the HSE & Environmental Health Officers, as well as your buildings insurance assessor to ensure continued validation of your policy.
Any sections of the system that are inaccessible need to be highlighted and presented accordingly within a comprehensive post-clean report. Our air hygiene post-clean report includes the following:
Pre- and Post-Clean Photographic Records
Recommendations for Future Cleaning Requirements
Observations on the Condition of the Ductwork System
A Schematic of the System, Detailing:
Access Door Locations
Any Inaccessible Areas of the System
A Written Explanation as to Why a Thorough Clean Could Not Be Achieved, When Applicable
Coastal Kitchen Cleans carries out all associated works in line with the recommendations of:
The Association of British Insurers (ABI)
The Building Services Research & Information Association (BSRIA)
The Heating & Ventilating Contractors’ Association (HVCA); Document TR19 Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems Guide to Good Practice (Section 7).
On completion of the clean, we will issue you with a Certificate of Cleanliness.
