Can’t Remember When Your Office Building Ducts Were Last Cleaned? Then It’s Time!

5/7/2022 (Permalink)

Last year really flew by and for many building owners, maintenance was a bit of a struggle to get done for a variety of reasons. It’s important to have regular maintenance done to ensure the building is clean and safe. However, one item that’s often overlooked is duct cleaning. It is especially important to have your commercial ducts cleaned. While this type of maintenance isn’t as visible as, say, dirty windows or carpets, it’s still important to get done. If you can’t remember the last time these were addressed, then it’s time!

Why clean a building’s ducts on a regular basis?

Ventilation systems are often the biggest cause of poor indoor air quality, including dust and odors. Most HVAC ducts don’t cross a building owner’s mind until odor or dust actually becomes an issue. If your HVAC has been operating for some time without proper cleaning, it could be circulating less than desirable air throughout the building. SERVPRO of South Albany County can inspect the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit of your business to see if you’re due. Why is it so important to do this? Keeping ducts clean can help fight unwanted odors and extend the life of the equipment, which can save building owners money.

When should you clean your ducts?

Duct cleaning should be a part of your regular office building maintenance. This is especially true if you have done major construction to your building which generated dust and particles! Why clean after construction or other major renovations? Dust and dirt can reside in your air ducts and get worse over time if not cleaned out. Not sure the work was dusty enough to merit a cleaning? SERVPRO of South Albany County will come out and inspect your ducts, making recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns at your business and let you know if you’re due for a cleaning. Even without major construction, it’s a good idea to keep those ducts clean.

What exactly does duct cleaning entail?

Duct cleaning usually refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans, fan motor, and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing. This can help eliminate dust, pollen, odors, dirt, debris, and other contaminants. The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include helping restore peak energy efficiency, eliminating offensive odors, and possibly reducing the potential for mold growth if moisture has also accumulated in the HVAC system.
