School kitchens ready for anything

Swiftclean Building Services has been engaged by Bootham School in York to oversee kitchen extract fire safety cleaning in its junior and primary school kitchens. Kitchen extract fire safety cleaning has become even more important for schools, following the changes to Key Stage 1 lunchtime provision.

Bootham School servicing manager, Sue McDonough, said: “We have been very pleased with the service and price from Swiftclean Building Services. We will continue to use them for as long as the service remains and look forward to the future.”

With minimal disruption, Swiftclean Building Services technicians completed the work during the school holidays, addressing any complications as they arose and ensuring that the school's kitchen extractors were ready for the rigours of the new academic year.

Swiftclean Building Services will continue to clean the kitchen extractor systems in both the junior and senior school buildings, according to the weight of use to which the systems are subjected. In the case of Bootham Junior School, due to lower levels of demand, once a year. This ensures that both kitchens remain TR/19 compliant in line with the B&ES Association guide to good practice - 'Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems' - and that the students remain safe from kitchen extract fire risk.
