Should I clean my Air Ducts?
Building owners and facility managers would probably agree that there are two very important, yet at times overlooked, appliances in any building-- the toilets and the HVAC system. Yet in the real world, the maintenance and upkeep of the HVAC system may take a backseat to sticking to the company budget.
The truth is, when poorly maintained, duct boards can begin to break down which causes them to shed fibers into the HVAC's air stream. This causes the air quality to deteriorate rapidly and may even become hazardous. Hospitals and other facilities with susceptible occupants should take special care when it comes to the air quality and performance of their HVAC systems.
Routine maintenance is best, including having your HVAC system and ducts inspected annually. The Professionals at SERVPRO of East Riverside City can inspect the heating, ventilation and HVAC system in your home or office. Our trained technicians can then make recommendations on the best way to address any concerns, as duct cleaning is not always necessary.
Keeping your ducts clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can save your company money and give your customers cleaner air to breathe. Although, most of the dust within the system cling to the side of the air duct surface and do not enter into the different rooms. Yet, over time build up can start to effect the air flow and excessive build up will start to make it's way into the air which has the potential to effect your health and the air quality.
Other benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:
- Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
- May help to eliminate offensive odors.
- Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
