Cleaning and decontaminating ventilation systems to ensure compliance with industry standards
Ventilation Hygiene ensures that ventilation systems are maintained in a clean condition as required by statutory regulation, to ensure the wellbeing and safety of those within the built environment.
Ventilation Hygiene Technicians clean and decontaminate ventilation systems to ensure compliance with industry standards. They undertake condition risk assessments, pre clean testing, clean, post clean testing and create a detailed profile of the ductwork system, including any remedial action.
Ventilation Hygiene technicians have detailed knowledge of the system’s operating principles. They identify and plan work requirements from engineering drawings and client instructions; liaise with clients, other trades, and suppliers; solve problems within their scope of responsibility; ensure work done by themselves and others complies with relevant standards; monitor and assist in delivery of work programmes and contribute to changes as work progresses or as required by the client.
They are able to work within new build construction sites and existing buildings on their own, safely, proficiently and without supervision.
