It is essential that every commercial kitchen ensures a consistently high standard of kitchen cleanliness.

Duct Genie delivers a thorough kitchen deep clean to all accessible, and less exposed, areas within your commercial kitchen. Putting in place regular kitchen duct and ventilation cleaning will help to satisfy requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which will remove the most common cause of fires within the kitchen.

Remember, in the event of a fire, if you are unable to show a current TR19 extraction clean certificate, it is unlikely that your insurance company will honour your claim.

Commercial catering establishments such as kitchens, canteens and food preparation areas must adhere to stringent legislation governing their hygiene standards.

A comprehensive kitchen deep clean will ensure:

Failure to meet the hygiene standards set out by the Food Safety Act 1990 and the Food Hygiene Regulations 2006 means you can incur severe fines that will almost certainly have a negative effect on profitability, as well as on the reputation of the business. In addition, poor cleaning procedures can lead to bacterial contamination, spread of diseases, pest infestations and reduce the life of your equipment.

Kitchen ventilation and extraction cleaning service with TR10 complaint reporting

Duct Genie will help to ensure that your ventilation system is clean and safe but more importantly, substantially reduce your risk of and extractor fire within your kitchen.

We are accredited to offer specialist ventilation cleaning services for your kitchen, by cleaning grease and carbon deposits from your extractor fan and ducting to the TR19 guidelines. A post-clean TR19 compliant report is provided as evidence for your insurance company.

We also offer a kitchen ventilation system monitoring service. Our technicians measure the levels of grease in your system and a TR19 compliant report is created to determine if cleaning is required.

Effective kitchen duct cleaning can only be undertaken with adequate access

Duct Genie can help to ensure that your ventilation system has sufficient access panels to ensure a thorough clean of the ducting from canopy to extractor fan.

We are accredited to offer specialist ventilation services for your kitchen and are trained to install new access panels, ideally at 2.5m intervals, by cutting into your existing ventilation system and installing new fitted access panels. This is essential in providing your TR19 compliance.

Grease Trap Cleaning and disposal service

Grease Trap Cleaning with Safe Waste Disposal.

Duct Genie can clean grease traps which are an essential part of any commercial kitchen helping to ensure harmful greases, fats and oils are captured and prevented from entering the drainage system where they could cause potentially damaging blockages and deliver environmental damage.

Grease builds up very quickly inside grease traps which effects their performance. The accumulation of the grease can become a source of unpleasant grease odours.

Grease builds up quickly in kitchen ducting and is an ignition source just waiting to be triggered by a naked flame.

Professional extractor hood cleaning service.

We have many years of experience dealing with thousands of kitchen extractor hoods in all conditions, specifications and locations.

If extractor hood cleaning is not undertaken in commercial kitchens and premises, troublesome grease deposits left over from service will amass quickly, in turn attracting fibrous build-ups. Eventually, these build-ups will carbonise and become baked-on, making their removal extremely difficult and time consuming. What's more, air flow efficiency can be seriously impaired by the deposits which in turn will affect the amount of energy being used to maintain a clean and safe internal environment.

If your kitchen's extractor hood is not professionally cleaned and maintained, then this can quickly become a fire risk, whilst bacteria developing in grease deposits can also create a hazard to health; this means that business efficiency and profitability is bound to suffer.

Duct Genie can provide a complete professional extractor hood cleaning service for all commercial and restaurant kitchens - contact us now for more information.

We can provide a nightly 'Kitchen Close' whereby we undertake the routine cleaning, maintenance and locking up of your restaurant, known in the industry as 'the kitchen close'.

There are a number of advantages to this, including that a more technical clean is delivered - utilising the specialist and expensive commercial cleaning equipment that we have access to. And perhaps more importantly, utilising our Kitchen Close Services allows your hard working team to leave at the end of their shift rather than have to push on into the night when they are all tired and just want to go home.

Does cleaning kitchen ducts help prevent kitchen fires?


The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 stipulates that by law, the person responsible for the business premises must carry out a fire risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan. Putting in place regular kitchen duct and ventilation cleaning and/or monitoring, will help satisfy this requirement as well as helping reduce the risk of fire.

Your insurance WILL NOT pay out without a valid TR19 Certificate!
