We provide complete ventilation solutions and deep cleaning for building and facilities managers. Our consultants carry out thorough risk assessments and advise on the correct remedial action to take to comply with the Regulations and associated Approved Code of Practice from the Health and Safety Commission. Annual maintenance programmes can be designed if required, or one off visits are scheduled to complement your existing regime.
Building and facilities managers can face prosecution if HVAC hygiene fails to meet the requirements of Health and Safety regulations. To ensure you stay compliant, we use SimPro, a software system that guarantees that service visits will not be missed. This paperless system also allows you to access audit information and certificates at any time, for total convenience and control.
After an initial site inspection, our specialists will determine the correct cleaning programme specific to your establishment. The inspection will check that the filters are correctly secured as well as examining the ductwork for levels of contamination.
Advice will then be given about how to effectively manage the fire risk associated with your laundry system. For example, we might advise a regular programme of inspections and cleaning typically every 6 to 12 months (depending on usage). Finally, all contamination will be removed from the entire length of the ventilation system.
Qualified chemists analyse the samples in our lab and you will receive test results within 10 days. Should any issues be identified, we dispatch our team to carry out the remedial work needed to ensure your ventilation is compliant.

The Oct 2005 Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order came into effect in April 2006. This places the onus on building operators to appoint a responsible person for fire safety who must ensure a fire risk assessment is carried out. A fire risk assessment will include any kitchen extract system within or passing through a building and should identify fire risks and ways of removing or reducing the risks. Failure to carry out an assessment and take precautionary actions could lead to an HSE prosecution.
We ensure that kitchen grease extract systems (canopies, filters, ductwork, risers and fans) in kitchens, restaurants, hotels, pubs, canteens, food production areas, hospitals, schools and the like are cleaned as required by your buildings insurance policies, in accordance with Fire Safety Regulations and Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations.
Upon completion of maintenance of kitchen extract systems we will submit certification of cleanliness and a photographic report together with pre and post Wet Film Thickness Test results.
Specialist cleaning is needed to remove thegrease, soil deposits, and debris that builds up over time, even in kitchens with the most thorough cleaning schedules. With our professional deep cleaning service, you can remain compliant with confidence.
Our Kitchen Deep Cleaning involves all cooking equipment and preparation areas – All cooking equipment is dismantled by hand and soaked in a chemical tank if needed to remove heavy build-ups of grease and carbon deposits and to allow hard standing solid structures to be fully deep cleaned. The preparation areas are thoroughly washed and sanitised, and the cleaning of the Kitchen canopy – inside and out, along with the filters – is also included.
Following completion of each kitchen deep clean a Hygiene Certificate is provided for clients to display on site. Information regarding the cleaning specification, risk assessment, method statements and COSHH details can also be provided to ensure total peace of mind.
