Exhaust Fan and Duct Cleaning

There are two main types of exhaust fans in Australia. The hooded fan that vents into open air on the outside of a building and the in-line exhaust fan that is located in ducting inside the building. For hooded fans, Big Ben will remove and clean the fan top, then clean the fan blades and interior.

Big Ben will also clean any ducting that extends from the fan all the way down to the canopy. If necessary, we will cut and install access panels in the ducting to ensure we can reach all areas of the ducting and fan. This enables our specialist cleaners to reach and clean areas of your exhaust system that other companies can’t, and which may in fact, have never been cleaned before. As always, Big Ben will issue a Certificate of Completion to ensure you are compliant with Australian Standard AS 1851.6 2012.
