Is your ductwork safe?


Is your ductwork safe?

Minimising fire risk, maximising hygiene and functionality are all good reasons to ensure your building’s ductwork is effectively maintained and cleaned on a regular basis. The new Loss Prevention Standard (LPS 2084) seeks to minimise fire risk from ducting.

In response to the issues caused by ineffective cleaning and maintenance, BRE Global has launched a new standard. LPS 2084 defines the LPCB requirements for the approval of companies carrying out inspection, cleaning and maintenance of ductwork systems that may be contaminated with combustible deposits. The standard was launched in May 2017, and there are already 10 companies who have applied to join the scheme.

Using a company certified to LPS 2084 gives clients the assurance that the cleaning and maintenance of their ductwork systems has been carried out correctly.
