Pre-Commissioning Cleaning & Flushing
At Integrated Compliance we offer pre-commissioning cleaning of pipework to ensure that your system is ready to use, in accordance with BSRIA ensuring it has the best possible chance of meeting its life-expectancy.
During the installation process, debris can build up in the pipework. This can include grease, oil, dust, rust and scale. All of these have the potential to cause damage to the newly installed system, therefore it is vital that a thorough and exhaustive clean is undertaken to ensure additional cost is not incurred.
Many systems include control or regulating valves. Due to the size of these, they can easily become blocked by debris causing them to stop working. This can result in strain on other parts of the system, leading to higher energy bills as the works harder to maintain the appropriate temperature in all parts of your building. A pre-commission clean can prevent these issues in your new system.
As well as removing debris from your system, we use specialist treatments to assist in reducing the chance of future build-up of deposits. Whilst we recommend regular system maintenance, these treatments can mitigate the impact of any contaminates that do manage to get into the system between maintenance visits.
Upon completion of the pre-commission clean, samples will be taken to demonstrate the cleanliness of the entire system, all in line with the BSRIA recommendations.

Is the landlord able to access a property for safety checks?
The contract you make with your tenant should allow you access for any maintenance or safety check work that needs to be done. You must not use force to enter the property. Further information is provided in regulation 39 of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
A landlord has to show that they took all reasonable steps to comply with the law. HSE recommends the following actions and strongly advises that a record be kept of all correspondence with the tenants:
- Leave the tenant a notice stating that an attempt was made to complete the gas safety check and provide your contact details.
- Write to the tenant explaining that a safety check is a legal requirement and that it is for the tenant’s own safety. Give the tenant the opportunity to arrange their own appointment.
HSE inspectors will look for repeated attempts to complete the gas safety check, including the above suggestions; however the approach will need to be appropriate to each circumstance. It would ultimately be for a court to decide if the action taken was reasonable depending upon the individual circumstances.find out more
