You can improve the air quality in your commercial building with a periodic professional air duct cleaning. With this process, a trained technician removes the accumulation of dust, microbes, bacteria, spores, mold, and other particles from within the ducts. This process prevents these contaminants from entering the air that you, your workers, and your clients breathe. The National Air Duct Cleaning Association recommends yearly air duct inspection and duct cleaning every three to five years for commercial, industrial, and health care facilities.
Process of Air Duct Cleaning
Before entering the system, we first use a remote camera system to visualize the ducts inside and determine the appropriate course of action. The NADCA has established professional standards for the air duct cleaning industry. Under these standards, technicians use a heavy-duty vacuum and compression systems to remove contaminants, dirt, and germs from the building’s air duct system. This includes a comprehensive cleaning of the ducts as well as the cooling coils and other components of the HVAC system.
With contained filtration, advanced equipment prevents particles from entering the air during the cleaning process. After the ducts have been thoroughly cleaned and returned to like-new condition, the technician will reseal the duct and test your HVAC to ensure it’s working as expected.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Dust, mold, and particle buildup within the duct system causes your building’s HVAC system to work harder than necessary to maintain the desired temperature. Removing this debris will lower your energy bills and reduce your company’s carbon footprint, protecting the environment and your bottom line. It also reduces wear and tear on the commercial HVAC system, so you’ll spend less money and time on repairs and help the system last longer.
Without regular cleanings, mold growth within the air duct system can become a serious environmental hazard. This is a particular safety risk for individuals who have preexisting respiratory conditions, such as asthma or allergies. With a professional air duct cleaning, your company takes steps to shield your team and your customers from harm. Doing so can also limit the cost of sick days and health insurance premiums for your business.
Your employees may even remark on the fresher, cleaner atmosphere within your building after air duct cleaning. This process removes unpleasant odors that can enter through the vents when mildew, mold, and dirt are allowed to flourish in the ducts. If you notice a damp, chemical, or exhaust smell, duct buildup could be the culprit.
Depending on your facility’s size, the technician may spend several hours ensuring that your ducts are in optimal condition. You can schedule this work after-hours to minimize the disruption to your operation since the equipment used can be noisy. The team will have your facility ready to open the next morning.
