In 2013 under TR19 compliance, new guidelines have come into practice, requiring establishments to have their FULL ventilation cleaned. Here at Blitz Group, we are able to clean from the start of your ventilation to end point.
Vertical risers can be extremely difficult to access and clean without the appropriate equipment. A cost-effective way of cleaning external risers is by using our Tegras brush system. This saves the cost of scaffolding which can lead into several hundred pounds depending on the size of scaffolding needed.
The Tegras system is designed to clean your ducting to the relevant TR19 standards and save you time and money along the way.
Demonstrating that your premises are fully compliant with TR19 can lead to lower insurance premiums and ensure premises are safe for staff and customers. Insurers may not always pay a claim if the duct system was found to be the cause of fire spreading, especially if it could be demonstrated that the system was not properly cleaned or maintained.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect in April 2006. This places the onus on building operators to appoint a responsible person for fire safety and this responsible person needs to have a fire risk assessment carried out. A risk assessment should include any kitchen extract system within or passing through a building and should identify fire risks and ways of removing or reducing the risks. Failure to carry out a risk assessment and undertake risk reduction measures could, in the event of injury or death lead to an HSE prosecution of the individual(s) and company responsible. EC directives incorporated into the above legislation require that ventilation systems are properly cleaned and tested by a professional contractor.
Health and safety regulations demand high standards of cleanliness for all areas of commercial kitchens. The combined risk of legal action and damage to reputation can be greatly reduced by regular Blitz Group Ltd kitchen equipment cleaning contracts. We are accredited members of BESA and are rigorously inspected and assessed annually to ensure reputability, quality works, health & safety standards in this industry.
