5 Benefits of Having Your Air Ducts Cleaned
Whether it’s a hospital, office building, lab, or manufacturing facility, it’s vital to have the best indoor air quality (I.A.Q.) possible at your commercial property. And if you feel as if the air within your building is pristine and doesn’t need a helping hand, think again — there’s a chance it could use vast improvement.
The commercial HVAC system cleaning professionals at Chemiclene, Inc. share five benefits any property can reap when they have their air ducts cleaned by the team.
1. Helps Improve Indoor Air Quality
First and foremost, having your commercial air ducts cleaned regularly will help improve indoor air quality within the space. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend about 90 percent of their time indoors. Furthermore, some pollutants found indoors are about 2 to 5 times higher than those found in the great outdoors — which is alarming!
With the help of a professional air duct cleaning, our team will safely remove any irritants present — such as dust, dirt, and other particulate matter — within the ductwork. Ultimately, this will help your HVAC system distribute clean, breathable air to your employees.
2. Extends the Lifespan of the HVAC System
Speaking of the HVAC system, having your ductwork professionally cleaned will help extend the unit’s lifespan. As it turns out, when air ducts are bogged down with various allergens from use, they’ll begin to hinder the “breathing” quality of your system.
Neglecting your air ducts can make your HVAC unit work harder than it has to — increasing energy bills in the process, as well as decreasing the system’s overall well-being. Setting your commercial HVAC system up for success will make a world of difference and leave little room for unexpected mishaps from occurring down the road.
3. Reduces the Potential of Mold Growth
As it’s known, mold thrives in dark, humid environments — such as your air ducts. Failure to have your ductwork cleaned could result in an uptick of mold growth, as well as leave room for other “pests” (i.e., bacteria, etcetera). Professional air duct cleanings can help stop mold growth in its tracks to provide clean, worry-free air in your commercial space.
4. Lessens Indoor Allergies
If you’re neglecting your air ducts for quite some time, there’s a chance an overwhelming accumulation of dust, dirt, and other indoor irritants may be lingering within. When this happens, your employees may begin to experience (if they haven’t already) allergy-like symptoms, such as:
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes and more
Professional duct cleanings can ease indoor allergies by eliminating the airborne debris and matter that helps flare them up.
5. Remove Airborne Odors
Does your commercial space have a lingering, rancid smell present? If so, that can indicate not only is mold or mildew present in your ductwork but potentially pests (or their remnants). While a duct cleaning will remove the stench, it will be up to an exterminator to remove any unwanted “tenants” from the ductwork.
