Airmec Essential Services : Facilities Managers

Airmec provides a range of essential ventilation system and water hygiene services for facilities and estate management companies, helping them to keep the buildings they look after safe and compliant with HSE regulations.

Our services are designed to integrate seamlessly with planned work to minimise on-site disruption.

Our technicians undertake Enhanced DBS checks.

All of our site consultants and operatives meet at least the Baseline Personal Security Standard (BPSS), and many have full Counter Terrorist Check (CTC) clearance. That’s why we can work on behalf of FM companies in restricted and sensitive areas within governmental, military, educational, industrial, life science or healthcare premises.

Please follow the links below to see more about the services we offer to support and complement your work. We’d be happy to discuss your needs and how we can work together.

Organisations ands businesses need to audit air and water hygiene compliance

  • As an independent air hygiene specialist, we can provide a tailored ventilation hygiene maintenance service to ensure the effective operation of the entire ventilation system, since the quality of air delivered to your buildings is critical to the health and well-being of staff and visitors. We can offer your facilities management professionals the following services:

    • Ventilation system hygiene surveys and risk assessments
    • Fire damper inspection and testing
    • Fire damper replacement and remedial works
    • AHU maintenance
    • Ventilation duct cleaning
    • Kitchen extract monitoring and cleaning
    • Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) examination and testing

    Where indoor air needs to be assessed for comfort or health and safety reasons one of our surveyors can conduct an Indoor Air Quality survey. We can also outline how to protect staff well-being from exposure to dust, fumes, or noise by undertaking an Occupational Hygiene Assessment.
