We ensure our Hospital Ventilation Cleaning Services are carried out to the correct standard.
Our specialist trained teams will carry out all aspects of the cleaning of the ducting systems including but not only the grilles, ducting, fans and outside grids.
We use not only the latest hygiene methods and products but also utilize industry leading containment procedures whilst working closely with infection control departments.
As an example of the work conducted, we look at specifically all ceiling grilles and ventilation ducting to be cleaned and certificated. The reason this is important is the various issues that can be found within any stage of the systems.
Air Handling Units can become contaminated particularly at the fresh air inlet with leaves, bird droppings, stagnant water and dead rodents or birds. These areas need at least an annual clean with a six-monthly inspection.
The ventilation grilles and ducts can contain microbial and fungal contaminants that can be blown into rooms whilst extract and return air grilles can become clogged up and therefore the air in the room can become contaminated and therefore swirl dirty air (containing viruses) around the rooms as there is nowhere to go. This will therefore increase the risk of infection within rooms. Grilles and Vents should be cleaned at least annually but definitely also checked six monthly.
We will then create a comprehensive schedule report linking all grilles/vents to relevant ducting and fans (with schematics). This enables a more simplistic but efficient approach in terms of planning /processing the correct work alerting for six monthly checks and annuals cleans or confirming any additional works.
