Greasy kitchen hoods in restaurants often represent a high level of fire hazard. Ventilation systems in commercial buildings contaminated with bacteria and molds can create health issues. We are prepared to quickly and safely clean and disinfect such critical areas.
Why start cleaning your ventilation?
Grease exhausts in kitchens are clogged by grease and fat from cooking and frying. This creates a very high fire risk especially with the use of hot oil right underneath it. Ventilation in commercial buildings is prone to bacteria and molds that can cause ‘sick building syndrome’.
Grease exhausts are potentially a great source for the outburst of fires and its spreading.
If you experience dry eyes or a sore throat only inside a building, your building is sick. Ventilation cleaning can ‘heal’ your building.
The European norm EN 15 780 determines the intervals of inspections and levels of contamination of HVAC systems. It also recommends cleaning of contaminated ventilation.
HVAC systems in commercial buildings
The quality of work environment is greatly affected by the air quality. Periodical controls and cleaning of the ventilation systems is an important part of the maintenance. Ventilation with permanent temperature and humidity control is a great place for the growth of bacteria, molds and yeast, which are responsible for respiratory problems and allergies.
Grease exhaust cleaning
Deposits of fat and grease in ventilation systems are a great fire risk. Grease filters in kitchen hoods catch only about 80-90 % of it. Over time, the rest usually condenses and settles in grease exhausts or in the ventilators. The fire then often quickly spreads throughout the whole system regardless of fire dampers. Regular cleaning is indispensable.
We take care of the grease exhausts for many exclusive clients such as the Four Seasons Hotel in Prague.
We can work around your schedule and perform our service during your down time such as nightwork.

Westfield Chodov – Prague
In the Westfield Chodov shopping center in Prague, we have set up a preventive plan for inspections and cleaning of ventilation systems, especially for the grease exhausts from the restaurants. Due to the number of business units, this requires large-scale organizing and planning so as not to limit the operation of the shopping center. We also conduct microbiological swap inspections.
