Make sure your insurance has not been invalidated!
It is important to know that insurance companies now stipulate as part of a building’s insurance terms the requirement for extraction systems and ductwork to be cleaned on a stated frequency (normally once or twice per annum). Insurance companies remain the driving force in ensuring that cleaning is undertaken. Failure to comply with these prerequisites may void any insurance cover if you are unable to demonstrate with the correct certification that cleaning has been carried out at regular intervals.
To ensure your kitchen extraction systems meet both Environmental Health and insurance company requirements, you need a professional company that employs trained technicians with knowledge of extraction systems and ductwork.
All work undertaken is carried out to TR19 industry standards by fully qualified engineers. A certificate of hygiene is issued after every full clean, which will count as proof that work has been carried out for both insurance and legal purposes.
You need to comply with government legislation!
Legislation governing Health & Safety compliance in commercial properties is constantly evolving. Over the years it has changed dramatically putting even more responsibility on business owners to safeguard their staff and customers.
The law requires that the business owner or the responsible person carries out a documented Health & Safety risk assessment each year, paying particular attention to potential fire hazards like build up of grease and dirt that accumulates within kitchen extraction systems and ductwork.
Constantly changing legislation and the introduction of even more stringent safety practices means that businesses need to act now to ensure that they are compliant with current regulations.
