Cleanliness and fire safety are essential ingredients of every well-managed kitchen. At the heart of the matter is your kitchen extract system, the perfect landing place for grease, oil and other deposits.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and Fire Regulations place a very strict 'duty of care' on the manager of the premises. Regulations stipulate that grease extract systems must be assessed for fire hazards and action must be taken to eliminate or minimise potential risks.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires you to minimise the fire risk by removing grease deposits with regular cleaning programmes, which are devised to suit your individual kitchen needs.
Since 2004, the responsibility for risk assessment has been placed on building owners and/or occupiers. Kitchen grease extract systems potentially carry a high fire risk and need regular inspections and cleaning.
At Coastal Kitchen Cleans, we go to great lengths to ensure that extraction systems are thoroughly cleaned, and potential fire or contamination risks are removed. A hygiene certificate is supplied for every job, on completion, and we also carry out pre- and post-cleaning micron testing, if required.
