If you own a commercial facility, optimal indoor air quality is crucial. Statistics show that people spend up to 90% of their time indoors exposed to an HVAC system. Because poor indoor air quality is hard to detect, proper HVAC maintenance often falls by the wayside. Even if the surface areas of your building are clean, dust and debris can still enter into the HVAC ventilation system. Invisible particles will find their way into your building’s public spaces, leaving these areas feeling less than fresh. While you might feel like your building’s indoor environment is pristine, there’s always ample opportunity for improvement. This is especially true if you haven’t addressed your air system in a while.
Here are the top three reasons why you’ll benefit from cleaning your commercial building’s air duct system today.
1. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Your commercial air duct system demands regular cleaning. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that air pollutants cycle indoors at rates two to five times greater than those found outside. Routinely cleaning your building’s air system will vastly improve your indoor air quality and comfort.
Professional air duct cleaning helps remove toxic air contaminants and other common irritants such as dust and particulate matter. If you haven’t cleaned your air system in a while, these materials are undoubtedly circulating through your ductwork and distributing unclean air that’s breathable by your guests and employees. Maintaining a clean air duct system is the best approach to sustaining a safe and comfortable work environment.
2. Air System Performance
Dust, mold, mildew, rodent droppings, and other harmful toxins can filter into the air ducts, where these materials will remain until your system is cleaned by a professional. If this problem remains unresolved, your HVAC system is subject to stress and, ultimately, performance issues.
According to the US Department of Energy, unclean ducts make your system work harder to move air into the room, resulting in up to 40% more energy wasted. Regular duct cleaning conserves energy and enhances performance while extending the useful life of your air system.
3. Airborne Order Elimination
Have you noticed a lingering musty or rancid smell at your facility? If so, your ductwork might be afflicted mold or mildew and, potentially, rodents and their remnants. While duct cleaning will help eliminate your building’s stench, be sure to contact an exterminator if you suspect pests. There could be several reasons why your facility doesn’t smell right. The key is to identify the root of the cause first. However, a good duct cleaning extracts the dust and cobwebs that carry smelly odors, and it always helps.
