Here at Quidos Cleaning Services, we are proud to offer kitchen extraction canopy and kitchen deep clean services.
Commercial kitchen extraction cleaning is important as built-up grease can cause fires in your commercial kitchen. When running a kitchen it is required that you clean to TR19 standards otherwise you risk the health and safety, of your staff and customers.
TR19 cleaning standards have been introduced into law and state that you are required to present a certificate proving that your commercial kitchen has been cleaned to this standard including extraction and ductwork.
Quidos cleaning services know how important it is to keep your kitchen extraction systems clean. Kitchen Extract systems may be hazardous due to the accumulation of grease. The grease reduces the rate of extraction of contaminants, fumes & heat.
Accumulated grease within the extract system forms a hidden combustion load. Under certain circumstances, Flame or very high temperature within the duct can ignite the grease causing fire to spread rapidly through the duct. Grease ignites at around 310c – 360c
Failure to carry regular duct cleaning can be a major fire hazard and can also invalidate your buildings insurance cover.
Quidos Cleaning services have trained grease & hygiene technicians who provide a management process for controlling the risk of grease related fires associated with operating commercial kitchen extract systems.
We issue a TR19 certification to show you have met the guidelines needed for the cleaning of ventilation ducts.
Due to the damage that can be caused by a grease fire, a lot of the time a total loss, Insurance companies normally state in the policy the responsible person must ensure that cleaning is done by a competent trained technician.
They must also ensure that it is cleaned following TR19 grease guidance which is the industry standard and includes photo evidence of the condition before and after the clean.
Any areas not cleaned will still be a fire risk because metal is such a good conductor and will spread rapidly.
Grease by itself can not cause fire however it does provide the fuel for one. It only needs an ignition source and oxygen, extraction systems are also a rich oxygen source as the fan pulls air through and the kitchen itself has many potential sources of ignition from faulty equipment and cooking processes with open flame.
Quidos Cleaning services are trained to measure grease levels and identify recommended cleaning frequencies to prevent fire hazards and comply with TR19 standards.
We can restore your kitchen and extraction hoods to fully comply with health and safety regulations.
