Specialist ventilation hygiene company Overclean has gained approval to the new BRE Loss Prevention Certification Board standard for inspection, cleaning and maintenance of ductwork systems.
Overclean is the first company to be audited and approved to this standard, being listed on the Red Book Live website.
Inspection, cleaning and maintenance of ductwork has become an important part of building facility requirements in the search for better indoor air quality and building energy efficiencies. Insurance companies are aware of the essential requirement to undertake cleaning ventilation systems to prevent the build-up of grease and dust in ducts to prevent fires.
Along with the regulatory law EC582, HSE requirements, CDM regulations and BS standards, all building owners should be aware of their responsibility to the occupants of the building and ensure that regular inspection, cleaning and maintenance of ductwork is carried out by a competent accredited company.
