If you’ve noticed decreased air flow from your vents and an increased amount of dust in your commercial space, you likely need an air duct cleaning. Poor air quality can affect the health of your employees and also cost you more long-term, so read on to learn about when to schedule a cleaning and how the process works.
We recommend getting your air ducts cleaned every 5 years, but that isn’t a set rule. Often times, cleanings are needed when:
- Employees are complaining of headaches, sore throats, and fatigue
- You notice reduced energy efficiency
- Bugs and rodents get into the HVAC system
- Debris is coming from the ductwork
- There’s decreased air flow when air or heat is on
- Your building is in an industry where debris is often created
When air ducts need cleaning, building owners don’t want to think about their workplace flow getting disrupted. The experts at Enviro-Air will work efficiently so that your space can get back to normal quickly.
Our process begins with an inspection. We want to know the state of your system before going in—if it’s worse than we came prepared for, that only extends the project. An inspection ensures that we know what we’re in for!
Before cleaning the air ducts, we’ll place protective coverings over workspaces to make sure computers and other office supplies don’t get coated in dust or grime.
Once we access the ducts (ceiling sections may need to be removed), we can begin cleaning. We vacuum, air wash, and power brush the ductwork interior, dampers, ducts, and fiberglass. Our vacuum has a High Efficiency Particle Air (HEPA) filter that dislodges particles in small areas. When using the air washing method, air will be forced into the ductwork that blows particles out of the system and into a collection unit. A power brush loosens stuck-on dirt and grime that is then blown away via the HEPA vacuum.
Throughout the entire process, you’ll be given updates on our work so you’ll have an idea of when the project will be finished. At Enviro-Air, we pride ourselves on professionalism, integrity, service, innovation, and quality. Give us a call today to schedule your cleaning!
