Our ventilation cleaning service is intended to help those capable to meet their legitimate obligations and practice their ‘duty of care’. As an initial step, we do an overview of your Ventilation system and give a definite appraisal of hazards, highlighting issues or deformities that effect on the general cleanliness of the Ventilation framework and benchmarking any aggregated contamination inside the sysytem against current industry guidelines set around Industry Standard of Excellence HVCA TR19 and CIBSE TM26. Testing and independent lab reports will identify and indicate further requirements that would need to occur to reach the specified requirements for cleanliness.

There is impressive proof to demonstrate that uncleaned ventilation ductwork can help the advancement and spread of HCAI. Temperature and moistness conditions regularly found in Ventilation systems, united to the nearness of organic matter including human hair and skin particles, give high chances to bugs like MRSA and C. diff. to flourish and to be dispersed. Ventilation frameworks act both as a support for, and disseminator of exceptionally hurtful microscopic organisms. Simply enhancing system filtration is occasionally a successful measure to handle this issue. Just careful framework cleaning, associated to better filtration materials, can give a successful commitment to the fight to combat contamination.

Where there is, evidence resulting that a general ventilation ductwork system needs Treatment we will draw up an arrangement of recommendations with costs highlighting specific issues, for example, advising on and installation of access panels for reaching inaccessible areas.  Thorough testing and post clean reports.

Regularly scheduled fire damper inspections are a critical part of fire safety maintenance plans. Regular testing and inspections ensure that dampers work correctly. Periodic smoke damper and fire damper inspections are required by the Regulatory Fire Safety Order.

Fire dampers therefore are a vitally important part of any ventilation system and need to be part of a fire damper maintenance program to ensure correct operation.

Spring operated fire dampers should be tested annually and fire dampers situated in dust laden and similar atmospheres should be tested much more frequently, at periods to suit the degree of pollution.” HTM03-1 also calls for fire dampers in hospitals to be tested every 12 months.
