Why use Lex Hygiene?

The Process

Kitchen duct extract cleaning

Using our unique foam and brushing system, we are able to reach more than just “arm’s length”*. Particular attention is paid to the area behind the grills “the plenum” as this is where grease build up materialises, being so close to the heat source, it is imperative it’s cleaned to the highest standard.

Filters are removed, soaked in our own LEX Hygiene Duct Cleaner powerful cleaning solution, rinsed and replaced.

With our unique foam and brushing system, we are able to clean your duct work to an extremely high standard without having to install as many access panels. Where access panels are needed but not fitted to the ducting, out trained technicians will insert panels in the relevant places and will also install drain off valves for the foam to disperse if required.

Duct Cleaning Times and Intervals

We work with you to undertake the cleaning at times that is convenient for you and your business needs – always with the aim of minimising disruption.

USAGE DAILY USAGE CLEANING FREQUENCY
Heavy Use 12-16 hours per day Every 3 months
Medium Use 6 – 12 hours per day Every 6 months
Light Use 2 – 6 hours per day Every 12 months

If regular cleaning is not undertaken, fats, oily deposits and fibrous particles can accumulate in kitchen extract systems, reducing air flow efficiency and producing a warm greasy environment for bacteria and pests to breed.

Failure to ensure regular cleaning of kitchen grease extract systems can invalidate buildings insurance cover due to the risk of fire. We are aware of many cases where insurers have refused to pay out on millions of pounds worth of claims following fires where the insured has not complied with the warranties on their buildings insurance policies regarding regular cleaning of the grease extract systems.
