Kitchen extract and ductwork maintenance firm Swiftclean has inked an agreement with Cleveland Biotech Ltd (CBIO) which will allow both parties to offer their joint expertise and an extended range of services to customers.
In a reciprocal arrangement, Swiftclean has the rights to market CBIO’s GreaseBeta TFM range of grease management technologies, while CBIO will in turn offer Swiftclean’s kitchen extract fire safety cleaning, duct cleaning and legionella prevention services to its existing client base.
“The combined knowledge and resources of both parties enable us to provide an even more comprehensive set of services to customers in this sector,” stated Swiftclean’s managing director, Gary Nicholls.
“Kitchen hygiene is vital for safeguarding health and safety and for maintaining the reputation of every commercial kitchen. Between us we can now counter the main problems which grease, oil and fat can create in a kitchen, from fire safety to clean waste water management,” he added.
Failure to provide effective grease trap management can lead to drain and sewer blockages, which can in turn result in substantial fines from local Environmental Health Authorities and water companies.
Ben Hoskyns, managing director of CBIO, said: “The addition of Swiftclean’s fire prevention capabilities to our service offering means that we can offer our kitchen clients a comprehensive solution to compliance with fire regulations as well as health and safety requirements as they relate to fat, oils and grease.”
