Ventilation Hygiene

Ventilation cleaning

Sure Deep Clean provides a complete solution for ventilation hygiene and duct cleaning.

Ventilation hygiene sure matters

Sure Deep Clean of Belfast provides complete duct cleaning services throughout Northern Ireland and R.O.I, in accordance with the requirements of TR/19, the industry guidance document issued by the B&ES Association and adopted as best practice by leading Insurers.

The second edition of TR/19 was issued in July 2014. To be compliant with TR/19, extract ductwork must be classified at one of three levels, according to the area of the building that it serves. Each system must be classified as high, medium or low, in order to reflect the purpose and function of that area of the property.

Sure Deep Clean provides expert help to determine which category or categories your extract systems fall into and how often the ductwork should be tested and cleaned as a result, according to the tables set out in TR/19. Sure Deep Clean can advise on system access design, installation and specialises in devising tailor-made hygiene maintenance schedules to ensure compliance with TR/19.

Our ventilation hygiene work

The cleaning of ventilation systems prevents the spread of airborne contaminants, ensures efficient operation and reduces the risk of fire hazards.

We can de-grease kitchen extract systems with very little inconvenience to the operation of the kitchen and provide certificates, post clean and access reports and before and after photographs which are dated.

All our cleaning work is carried out to BESA regulation TR19 standards. This involves cleaning or replacing filters, removal of fans for deep cleaning to ensure full degreasing.

On completion, a report is provided containing the following;

• Pre-clean measurements (as per System Testing)
• Post-clean measurements
• Photographic records
• Additional works carried out (if any)
• COSHH data on any chemicals used
• Recommendations for future cleaning requirements
• Observations on the condition of the ductwork system
• A sketch or schematic of the system indicating access panel and testing locations

The post-clean verification of cleanliness report assists to serve as evidence of a systems status to insurance assessors, environmental health officers and landlord agents.

For more information on the extraction system cleaning and ventilation hygiene we provide, please give us a call or email us to see how we can help. We have carried out duct cleaning works in fast food outlets, hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals, care homes, shopping centres and many more.
Legal requirements

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires those responsible for workplaces to carry out a fire risk assessment of their premises, including grease extract systems and take action to eliminate - or, at least, to minimise - risks to the safety of the building's occupants. Should the responsible person have failed to carry out fire risk assessments or take appropriate action to protect the safety of building occupants, and a fire causes injury or death, they may be liable to criminal prosecution.
Insurance requirements

Insurers can ask for evidence to be shown that the new Fire Safety Order is being complied with. As a high fire risk, the grease extract system should be cleaned at least annually, and many policies make this a minimal requirement under the terms of the insurance. Insurers are becoming more inquisitive, primarily because fire claims and compensation costs are increasing rapidly. The attitude, "don't worry, we’re insured” is more and more inappropriate for today's building owners and managers. Failure to comply with the legislation will provide grounds for Insurers to dispute claims in the event of fire.
