“by far the most common problem and cause of ducting fires is the lack of proper cleaning and maintenance”

What Can You Do To Ensure The System Meets Health & Safety Standards?
It’s time to take a closer look at your extract system. Is it really safe? Is there a high risk of your extract system catching fire?
If you are unsure, it is advised that you arrange for an audit to be carried out on the system. This will also confirm if any areas of ducting have been missed and if any changes need to be made to your ducting to gain access. At the end of the audit a full report will be provided for you to view. The report will include images, micron readings and will also confirm whether the current state of your extract system is a high, medium or low risk. The results will ascertain whether urgent action is required or when it is advised the next clean be carried out.
What Can Be Done To Prevent Fires In Your Extract System?
It is simple. Regular cleaning of extract systems will severely reduce the risk of a fire from starting. If you remove the grease, you remove the risk. It is always a good idea to plan and schedule future cleans to be certain you stay within compliance. Cater Clean 24 Seven will remind clients when their next clean is scheduled and are always happy to accommodate to ensure your business open hours are not affected.
