Why Do I Need Duct Cleaning?
Cleaning air conditioning and ventilation systems is essential to remove the build-up of dust, grease and bacteria in ductwork. Therefore failure to remove this build-up will result in dirty and unhealthy air drawing into the building. As a result contaminated air can affect occupant’s health and productivity.
Due to excess of grease and oil build-up in ventilation and ductwork, it will increases the risk of fire. Because fires will rapidly spread throughout the duct by igniting the grease deposits, allowing it to strech through your building.
Accumulated grease in ductwork will create a hygiene hazard over time. Due to this build-up, it leads to foul odours, pest infestation and backwash of air into the cooking area.
How often should ductwork be cleaned?
When your ventilation system has a build up of particulates, duct cleaning is necessary. However, the frequency of duct cleaning will vary depending on many factors including system design, location, and building use. In the meantime TR/19 official guidelines outlines a standard cleaning scheduled based on the hours of cooking per day.
