'Swiftclean expertise helps Rainham Group excel in FM market'

25 March 2013

By incorporating services from legionella and grease management expert, Swiftclean (MD Gary Nicholls pictured), the Rainham Group has managed to establish 'a formidable reputation' as a provider of outsourced specialist services to the facilities management sector

The Rainham Group, which was originally formed to provide refrigeration and air conditioning systems supply and maintenance, has expanded its remit to offer a more comprehensive range of specialist services. For this it uses Swiftclean expertise targeted at legionella and fire prevention.

Swiftclean provides compliance under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations for controlling the risk of legionella bacteria in hot and cold water systems. Its operatives carry out annual checks for Rainham’s major customers and document the precautions taken against legionella in accordance with COSHH and L8, and also complete ventilation ductwork cleaning in line with BS, B&ES, BSRIA and CIBSE guidelines and standards. Swiftclean also provides water storage tank cleaning, disinfection and refurbishment services.

In addition, the company delivers extract ductwork cleaning to remove grease and oily deposits in order to reduce the risk of fire in commercial kitchens. Swiftclean is one of few UK specialists providing national fire prevention ductwork cleaning to relevant B&ES Association, BSRIA and health & safety guidelines, and in compliance with both Fire Safety regulations and building insurance requirements.

Philip South, Managing Director of the Rainham Group, explained how the arrangement widens its range of specialist FM services. He said, “The Rainham Group has acquired a great deal of expertise in refrigeration and air conditioning, and we wanted to offer complementary services that allowed major FM companies to see us as a one stop shop for this type of specialist service.

“By harnessing the knowledge and experience of Swiftclean we can supply more services, confident in the knowledge that they will all be delivered with the same consistent attention to detail as our own in-house portfolio. This helps to ensure compliance with legionella and fire prevention requirements for our own customers, as well as greater peace of mind.”
