KITCHEN EXTRACT CLEANING

In accordance with industry standards TR/19

We are experts here at Duct Cleaning Ireland in cleaning duct and kitchen extract systems to TR19 standards as required by the insurance companies. There is now a requirement by the insurance companies to have the canopy and ducting cleaned regularly.

On request one of our technicians will call to the premises and carry out a free survey to determine if cleaning is required.


What is our technician looking for in the course of the free survey?

  • Grease build up in the canopies
  • Grease build up in the duct – horizontal and vertical
  • Grease build up on the extract fan
  • Grease build up in the extract louvre vent
  • Establish if access panels need to be supplied and installed

Our technician uses a wet film thickness test as per TR19 standards

The frequency of testing and cleaning if required is dependent on usage. See chart for guidelines.
