Having clean, healthy air indoors is a necessity for a productive building. If your ducts are not clean, dirty air will circulate and place the occupants of the building at risk form a health and safety
perspective–and cost you money.
Over time dust, dirt and lint accumulate in your duct work, which provides the perfect environment for bacteria to breed. This then spreads around the building, and from person to person. Additionally, indoor air contaminants such as fibers and chemicals from carpeting , fabrics, furniture, cleaning and equipment can have a detrimental impact on building occupants. For those suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, dirty ducts could aggravate their symptoms and prolong recovery time. Having clean ducts will increase your employee’s productivity and lead to a decrease in sick leave, thereby saving you money.
Dirty ducts not only can affect the health of your employees, residents or customers, but also represent a fire risk due to a build up of dirt, dust and debris.
Having a clean, efficient ducted system means less energy usage and therefore a reduction in utility costs. In fact, up to 15%–20% can be saved on utility bills after servicing and cleaning. Regular maintenance will also increase the life of the mechanical workings, reducing premature failure of HVAC components, and avoiding unnecessary maintenance or replacement costs during the lifespan of the ducted system.
