Specify VHR And Find Quality Contractors With Confidence

Protect people, property and reputation easily, with a contractor you can trust. All Vent Hygiene Register contractors have completed our robust audit which ensures they can demonstrate their commercial and technical ability.  They also work to the industry specification TR19® Grease, which is recognised by the RISCAuthority, British Standards and London Fire Brigade. 

When it comes to projects, you want to ensure you get the right contractors, for the right job, every time. Being able to evidence that you have delivered on your responsibilities for safeguarding the lives of those who will be living and working in the commercial properties you manage, is imperative in a post Grenfell world and the enactment of the Building Safety Act 2022.

Vent Hygiene is more than just cleaning, it's fire prevention. Which is why having your grease extraction systems cleaned by an approved vent hygiene contractor guarantees you peace of mind and reassurance that the risk of fire within your commercial kitchen has been significantly reduced and meets the industry specification TR19® Grease. Ensure you always check your vent hygiene contractors are VHR approved.

Always Check Contractors

Unfortunately, there are vent hygiene companies out there who claim they are TR19® Grease compliant. They fraudulently display the Vent Hygiene Register accreditation on their van and website but aren't registered with us. That is why it is important to always use our Find a VHR Contractor search tool, which is simple to use and can be filtered by area. If you can't find the contractor on there, it says suspended or removed, then we strongly advise you select a vent hygiene contractor who is registered and approved.

If you would like to report a contractor for fraudulently using the VHR logo or claiming their work is TR19® Grease compliant, then please email We will investigate and take action.
