Vector offer a comprehensive cleanliness condition survey and ductwork cleaning programme of all internal mechanical ventilation systems and fire dampers. We also offer the monitoring, assessment and report production of indoor air quality conditions in all commercial and industrial premises

Sampling is carried out within the ventilation systems to assess hygiene conditions and air quality, with reports prepared containing a photographic record of surface conditions and sampling result to B&ES (formerly HVCA) TR19 standards & CIBSE TM26.

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that “sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions” of the building.

An important factor of the rate at which combustible grease accumulates on the internal surfaces of a kitchen extract system is the effectiveness of the grease filters fitted in the canopy. They should be regularly cleaned and inspected and checked for fit. Any grease laden air able to bypass the filter and enter the extract system has serious implications as to the amount of contamination able to accumulate on internal kitchen extract duct surfaces.

Grease is a combustible and B&ES TR19 provides a method of measuring and defining cleanliness and dirtiness recommending a Wet Film Thickness Test (W.F.T.T) to determine the level of grease contamination and recommend any remedial actions based on these measurements.
