Platinum Facilities Maintenance has successfully completed its second South Lanarkshire Council (SLC) contract to clean the kitchen canopies and extract ductwork of 68 of its properties, including primary schools, leisure centres and nursing homes.

Colin Chambers, managing director of Platinum Facilities Maintenance, says: “This is another council contract we have been awarded with in order to carry out the mandatory compliance works. We successfully undertook a cleaning operation on a similar number of SLC properties earlier this year.

“We are delighted that the Council has acknowledged our ability to perform this work by giving us a further contract which we have completed in record time.”

The cleaning of kitchen canopies and ductwork is vital in commercial kitchens of every organisation in the UK. The build-up of grease and fat deposits in these can promote serious fire risks. If not cleaned regularly, your insurance can become invalid.

Platinum provides comprehensive solutions for all building compliance issues, such as PAT testing, electrical testing, legionella monitoring and fire damper drop testing. These services are offered to a range of customers, in both the public and private sector.

Colin says: “All property owners have a duty of care towards the public and need to be aware of the cost and time implications non-compliance with the regulations could have for their companies.

“Anyone who is uncertain about their situation should seek expert guidance to help mitigate the more damaging potential effects.”
