Kitchen extract ductwork accumulates fat, oil and grease deposits in even the most spotless kitchen; and these constitute a fire risk which you must control as a legal duty. If you have a kitchen, cooking or catering facility on the premises, you will need to schedule for cleaning your kitchen extract ductwork in compliance with TR/19, the leading guidance document for ductwork cleaning. Again, not complying with TR/19 could be construed legally as negligence, as Fire Safety Kitchen Extract Cleaning is an essential part of fire prevention.

It has been established that in hospitals and medical care facilities that humidity and high temperature levels allied with accumulations of dust and debris, typically found in un cleaned ductwork, provides ideal conditions for the growth and spread of infectious micro-organisms such as MRSA. Other infections such as influenza and the common cold will spread throughout building if systems are not maintained and cleaned. To ensure that conditions for building occupants are comfortable and safe, it is the duty of the premises owner or facilities manager to ensure this is undertaken and suitable records are maintained to support compliance.
