Why carry out cleaning and maintenance?


• You will reduce the risk of fire.
• It prevents the build-up of grease deposits and bacteria within your kitchen extraction system.
• Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, your extract systems need to be included in your fire risk assessment with action taken to minimise any potential fire risk to buildings and occupants.
• Failure to carry out proper cleaning and maintenance could lead to a breach of Environmental Health regulations and could invalidate your fire insurance policy.

How often should I clean?

Ductwork


Ideally, you should measure the rate of build-up of grease on the internal surfaces of ductwork. If this is not possible, your cleaning work should be planned around the level of use:
• Heavy use (12-16 hours per day) – clean every three months.
• Moderate use (6-12 hours per day) – clean every six months.
• Light use (2-6 hours per day) – clean every 12 months.

Where cooking processes involve fat frying or wood/charcoal burning, cleaning may need to be more frequent.

Extract hoods and filters


These should be cleaned and degreased daily, or in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. Cooking should never be carried out unless there is a filter in place.
