The importance of professional air duct cleaning

professional air duct cleaning

Professional air duct cleaning is more important than you think. Do you know the main risks of indoor air pollution in the space you inhabit? Here’s an approximation to its origin. Fungi can infiltrate inadvertently in the habitable premises of our domestic environment, due to humidity, the presence of domestic animals, through contaminated air humidifiers, and, of course, by the existence of air conditioning in which adequate maintenance has not been practiced.

What is this maintenance deficit that you should avoid if you pursue a good quality indoor air in your home or workplace? It can be due to different causes:

  • Poor quality of installed filters, or poor choice of these depending on space and maintenance conditions of use required. The filters retain a good part of the particles that transport air. Since they can also transport microorganisms, they represent a good medium for the development of these organisms.
  • Poor maintenance and cleaning. Proper maintenance and cleaning of the air conditioning, ventilation, humidifiers or cooling towers must be ensured.
  • Lack of tightness and accumulated dirt in the air ducts.
  • Improper placement of the outside air extraction nozzles. It should be avoided to install said extraction nozzles in places where, from the microbiological point of view, there is a external contamination.

The interior cleaning systems of air conditioning ducts used by AJ’s Air guarantee the maximum elimination of the dirt contained inside the ducts and the reduction of microbial contamination in the air.

For these three main reasons, it is not only necessary to clean the air ducts and air conditioning with a professional but also to disinfect and apply the most advanced sanitation techniques to avoid microbes and odors in the environment.

To get an idea, the indoor air of a building is 10 times more polluted than the outside air. Healthy air brings the quality of life to you and your workers, improving the air you breathe.

The concern for environmental quality in the interior of buildings is growing. This responds to two fundamental reasons: the design of closed buildings and the high time people spend in indoor environments.

The process of professional air duct cleaning is essential to ensure the quality of the air we breathe. Our specialists develop personalized air treatment and purification plans, which have restoration applications or independent applications. For example, after a fire, it is very possible that smoke and soot particles will be absorbed and enter the building’s air ducts. If not treated properly, these pollutants become part of the air we breathe, as they are pushed through the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. In addition, air pollutants can accumulate inside the ducts, creating an ideal breeding ground for mold, bacteria, fungi, and other microbes.

The cleaning of the air ducts that is essential for commercial and residential buildings, since the ducts transport the air that we breathe! Air purification processes have several benefits and are an important part of the recovery services provided by AJ’s Air, as well as being a proactive solution to indoor air quality considerations.
