Here at UK Commercial Cleaning, we provide specialist industrial oven cleaning and duct cleaning services for industrial kitchens across the UK at competitive prices.
If regular oven cleaning, duct cleaning and extraction canopy cleaning is not undertaken, then greasy deposits left in the ducts will attract fibrous build-ups as time progresses. Eventually, this will carbonise and become baked-on, making removal extremely difficult and time consuming. What’s more, air flow efficiency can be seriously impaired by deposits, which leads to a greater use of energy.
If all of these areas are not professionally cleaned and maintained, then this can quickly become a fire risk, whilst bacteria developing in grease deposits can also create a hazard to health; this means that business efficiency and profitability is bound to suffer.
Furthermore, failure to carry out regular oven and duct cleaning can invalidate buildings insurance cover. We are aware of many cases where insurers are refusing to pay out on millions of pound worth of claims following fires where the insured has not complied with the warranties on their buildings insurance policies regarding regular cleaning of duct and extractor hood systems.
UK Commercial Cleaning can provide expert oven and duct cleaning services that operate to HVCA TR/19 standards.
For insurance purposes, we will supply certification after every oven cleaning and duct cleaning service is carried out; we also supply grease deposit measurements before and after the clean, as well as photographic evidence.
All of the aforementioned and more will make up your post clean info pack, which can be presented at any time to food hygiene or insurance companies for analysis.
It is a legal requirement to ensure that all industrial kitchen ovens and grease extract systems, such as canopies, filters, ductwork, risers and fans, in kitchens, restaurants, hotels, pubs, canteens, food production areas, hospitals and schools, are cleaned as required by your buildings insurance policies, and in accordance with Fire Safety Regulations and Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) regulations.
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 and this responsible person needs to have a fire risk assessment carried out. Such a risk assessment should 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 a risk assessment and precautionary actions identified as risk reduction measures could, in the event of injury or death could lead to an HSE prosecution of the individual(s) and company responsible.
