Bob Towse - Head of Technical and Safety - Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) 

"In many cases where a fire has been traced back to the kitchen extract system it has never been cleaned since the ductwork was installed.  In such circumstances insurance companies are rejecting fire damage claims and refusing to pay out because having the extraction system cleaned is nearly always a condition of their policies.

Changes to fire regulations introduced in 2005 placed a heavy responsibility on owners, landlords and managing agents to ensure risk assessments have been carried out in their buildings, including identification of potential ignition sources; failure to do so can lead to hefty fines and possible prison sentences.

In many cases systems are only serviced, maintained and cleaned when they finally break down. This is quite simply unacceptable.

B&ES member firms are regularly called to testify as expert witnesses in cases where fires have broken out in kitchens and then spread along grease-laden ductwork to other parts of the building.

Insurance firms are using poor maintenance of ventilation extract systems as grounds for refusing to pay out because they can assert that warranties have been breached due to lack of proper cleaning regimes.

Adhering to the B&ES’s ‘Guide to Good Practice – Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems’, which is endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive, and carrying out regular inspections and recommissioning is a good way to satisfy insurance companies that the right steps have been taken to properly clean kitchen extraction and ventilation systems, both to minimise fire risk and safeguard the health of employees.

We would recommend that systems are cleaned and recommissioned at least every 12 months.  However, some systems may need to be cleaned even more frequently than this due to the cooking type and usage. System owners are recommended to introduce a condition survey process to establish the frequency required for their system.”
