Around a quarter of the 24,000 accidental fires in UK non-domestic buildings each year are caused by cooking appliances. Fires are an occupational hazard in commercial kitchens, but their impact is made far worse by the rapid spread of the fire through poorly maintained grease extract systems and ductwork. If grease deposits in uncleaned ductwork are ignited they will spread the fire rapidly to other parts of the building.
Many insurance companies now make it a condition of cover that building managers have a planned maintenance strategy in place and, before paying out following a fire, they will insist on seeing evidence that ductwork cleaning had been carried out. Failure to comply can invalidate building insurance cover.
No matter how large, small or complicated your systems are DCUK FM have the expertise and specialised cleaning equipment required to tackle any job. We utilise remote foaming systems that can clean risers and horizontal ductwork from one point of access, abseiling and CCTV verification where required.
We operate to BESA TR19 guidance, our grease cleaning technicians are BESA accredited and in house trained to Grease Cleaning Operative and NAADUK standards.
All systems surveyed and/or cleaned by DCUK FM are recorded and verified on our bespoke data base system VMP (Ventilation Management Programme). This system has been specifically designed to ensure that when we are asked to survey and verify the condition or cleanliness of your ventilation systems, we will provide you with a detailed report with all industry compliant information required free of charge and all clients are issued with a unique log in and password enabling access to this information by any staff.
