Kitchen Extract Cleaning

Kitchen extraction systems can pose a serious fire hazard – filters simply cannot eliminate all the vaporised grease that commercial cooking causes. These greasy residues then condense and build up on the canopy plenum, duct and fan surfaces, more importantly it is essential to clean the ansul fire supression sytem so that these nosils do not become inoperable when required. A dirty supply or extract system particularly a Kitchen Extract is a definite fire or dust explosion risk. Once set alight the ductwork acts as a huge chimney and fire spreads rapidly. This hazard is compounded if the fire dampers built in the system are inoperable through gross contamination and neglect. 

Legal Requirements

Health & Safety at work regulations and the Fire Regulations require that those responsible for the workplace must carry out a risk assessment of the grease extraction systems and act upon the results of the risk assessment to eliminate or at the very least minimise the ‘Risk of Fire'

Ocean can supply a comprehensive Kitchen Hygiene cleaning program that keeps up with your individual ongoing requirements to minimise this risk.
Insurers are demanding that deep cleaning should be carried out in accordance with the Building & Engineering Service Standard TR19 and only contractors who can comply with this specification should be retained.
