Having cleaned kitchen ducts for as long as we have, we know a thing or two about this cleaning service. Our extensive experience in this industry allows us to provide the highest levels of compliance. Our knowledge of exacting food-safe products, along with strict compliance procedures, makes APT trusted industry leaders. We clean a huge variety of commercial ducting for the care sector, food manufacturers, schools, local authorities, and restaurants alike.
Ensuring your kitchen ducts are clean is paramount for the safety of your staff and clients alike. It is well known that grease left in ventilation systems can reduce airflow and thus cause potential risk of fire. If this is found to be the case by the insurance company, they will not pay out on any claim. Grease in the ducting prevents the filters from working efficiently and causes them to work under pressure thus shortening their life span.
Insurers require that a TR19/BESA/HVAC assessment has been carried out and complied with for health and safety purposes. They will also require a copy of the certificate and that it has been completed by a professional duct cleaning service company; APT can provide all this for you.
Any cleaning team involved in kitchen duct cleaning must have a good understanding of the compliance to do so, our teams have years of experience and work to standards approved by insurance companies, fire safety standards and environmental health as set out in the guidance to good practice.
