The Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 impose a duty on every employer to conduct risk assessments on air supply systems. Suitable provision should be made to ensure that every enclosed workplace is ventilated by fresh or purified air. This air, as far as possible, should be free of impurity which is likely to be offensive or cause ill health.

Ventilation systems must be checked and cleaned on a regular basis to ensure that people are breathing good quality air. If not, health may be at risk.

Sick Building Syndrome

This is a recognised side effect of indoor, polluted air. Workers experience a variety of symptoms which may include headaches, fatigue, loss of concentration, eye and throat irritation, shortness of breath, skin rash or dry and itchy skin.

Large open-plan offices with automated heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems which have not been maintained to a satisfactory standard are affected. Besides the ill effects it may have on your workforce, a dirty ventilation system is a trap for duct debris, increasing the fire risk in the building.

Important reasons for having your ducting cleaned include the concern of the health of your staff and visitors, complying with regulations, reducing the fire risk and maintaining the efficiency and reducing the running costs of your system.

Vent-Clenz will carry out a full inspection of your system before we commence any servicing of your system.
