  • Can I clean my own extraction system?
    It is best to use an accredited specialist to clean your extraction system, so as not to jeopardise your insurance cover. Insurers usually require a TR19 certificate as evidence of route ventilation cleaning. Ferncroft Duct Cleaning can help devise a timely cleaning schedule, for safety and peace of mind.
  • What services do you offer?
    Commercial kitchen duct cleaning (TR19 Grease), commercial kitchen canopy cleaning, commercial extraction unit cleaning, grease duct cleaning BESA TR19 Grease, air duct cleaning BSEN 15780.
  • What is TR19?
    TR19 is the required standard to which ductwork should be cleaned, tested, and inspected. All employers have a legal obligation to ensure working environments are clean, safe, and meet the requirements of insurance companies.
  • How often should I have my extraction system cleaned?
    The frequency of some jobs will depend on the level of use the kitchen receives. For example, one system used for extraction system cleaning and commercial duct cleaning categorises kitchens into the following: Light use – 2-6 hours a day, medium use – 6-12 hours a day, heavy use – 12-16 hours a day. Our team can advise on the frequency of cleans depending on your usage.
  • Do you issue a fire safety certificate?
    Yes, as a Besca Hygiene Elite Scheme Member we issue a TR19 certificate following your service that shows that your system is fire safe and clean.
  • I’m a new manager in a commercial kitchen. I don’t know when the extraction system was last cleaned or even if it’s safe to use?
    No problem, we’re just a call away. We can assess your system to determine if its currently TR19 compliant and advise of any current defects that may be an issue. If a full clean is required, our team will discuss the findings and get you booked in.
  • My extraction system needs more access panels, can I fit my own?
    Access panels are fitted to allow regular maintenance and cleaning to be performed. We’re highly trained and suitably experienced to advise on and install new doors and panels, keeping your extraction system fit for purpose.
  • My extraction system rises outside to the roof. Can this section be cleaned too?
    Yes, our advanced team can clean all types of ducting system, regardless of layout. We have experience in cleaning small single level systems to complex layouts rising many floors. We are highly trained in confined spaces and working at heights to make this process possible.
  • My commercial kitchen closes late, what hours are you available to clean the extraction system?
    We understand how busy your kitchen can be during normal operational hours. We can arrange for our cleaning teams to carry out your duct cleaning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • What geographical locations are covered for extraction and ventilation system cleaning?
    Ferncroft Duct Cleaning is conveniently based just outside the city of London. Most of our clients are based within the Central London area, including Soho, Mayfair, Chelsea, Camden, Covent Garden and Knightsbridge.
