Duct & Ductwork Cleaning
It has been found in hospitals that temperature and humidity levels allied with accumulations of dust and debris, typically found in uncleaned air conditioning ductwork, provides ideal conditions for the growth and spread of infectious micro-organisms such as MRSA. In a similar way, infections such as flu and the common cold will spread throughout the workplace if systems are not maintained and cleaned. In order to ensure that conditions for building occupants are comfortable and safe, building owners and managers have both a 'duty of care' and legal obligations to ensure that ventilation systems are kept clean by the most efficient ductwork and duct cleaning methods.
General Ventilation Ductwork Systems (air conditioning)
The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations require building owners and managers to ensure enclosed workplaces are ventilated with fresh and purified air and that, where this is provided by a mechanical ductwork system, it is regularly maintained, inspected and cleaned and a suitable record kept to support this compliance.
Grease Extract Ductwork Systems
Grease accumulations in grease extract ventilation systems (invariably linked to catering and cooking facilities) present a significant fire hazard if not cleaned. It is not unusual for grease extract ductwork to run through an entire building to reach a roof level exhaust, thereby putting the whole building and its occupants at risk in the event of fire.
Thorough, professional duct cleaning to remove all fire hazardous grease deposits from the internal surfaces of the ductwork is essential. At a recent seminar a fire authority representative stated "Uncleaned grease extract ventilation systems present probably the greatest potential fire risk in buildings with catering facilities".
The Fire Safety Order requires owners and managers of buildings to ensure the Grease Extract Ventilation System is included in the Fire Risk Assessments and action taken to eliminate any potential fire risk.
Ductwork system cleaning to Industry Standard of Excellence: B&ES TR19
All Hyperklean specialist cleaning of ducts and ductwork systems is carried out in accordance with the standards laid down in the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) fully approved Industry Standard of Excellence TR19. Cleaning not carried out in accordance with this standard will not comply with the health and safety and fire safety legislation.
