Air Duct Cleaning – Commercial

Indoor air quality is one concern that building managers and building inhabitants have when they decide to investigate HVAC system. Through normal occupation in a building, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork.

While a contaminated HVAC system doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, the situation may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Southwest  has been cleaning commercial air duct systems for over thirty years. All of our commercial cleaning projects are cleaned to industry performance standards (NADCA ACR-2013), and are supervised by a NADCA certified ‘Air System Cleaning Specialist’ (ASCS). We have done all types and sizes of commercial buildings, such as schools, restaurants, grocery stores, office buildings, hangers and medical facilities. We have performed many cleaning projects on Ft. Bliss, McGregor Range and White Sands Missile Range.  We will provide references upon request.

OUR NADCA AIR DUCT CLEANING APPLICATIONS & STANDARDS

NADCA GENERAL SPECS

This recommended General Specification was prepared by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). It describes the minimum requirements necessary to coordinate a successful commercial HVAC system cleaning project. This document was created for use by building owners, managers and engineers in the development of cleaning specifications applicable to a certain building or group of buildings.

NADCA ACR STANDARD

Assessment, Cleaning, and Restoration of HVAC Systems (ACR The NADCA Standard) is unique in that it is a performance standard that also provides minimum procedural requirements. This Standard has evolved from procedural-based guidelines, standards of care, and research originating from the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), along with associated organizations.

CHEMICAL APPLICAITONS

HVAC systems sometimes require treatment for odors or the reduction of microbial contamination. One remedy that has been used for these problems is ozone, a form of oxygen. Currently a broad range of information exists regarding the use and efficacy of ozone.

ULTRAVIOLET CLEANING

It is generally agreed that source removal of contaminants remains the single best method for cleaning and decontaminating HVAC systems. One of the tools used to improve air quality from HVAC systems is the use of ultraviolet lighting within the system, intended to decrease the level of airborne pathogens and allergens going through the HVAC system and thus into the indoor air environment.

OZONE APPLICATIONS

Ozone (O3) is a molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. It is much less stable than the more common oxygen molecule, O2. Ozone in the lower atmosphere will burn sensitive plants and is an air pollutant with harmful effects on the respiratory systems of animals; however, the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere is beneficial, preventing potentially damaging electromagnetic radiation from reaching the earth’s surface.

BENEFITS OF COMMERCIAL AIR DUCT SYSTEM CLEANING

EMPLOYEE HEALTH

The HVAC system of a commercial building has become widely recognized as an Indoor Air Quality concern.

CLEANING SAVINGS

Less Dust, Less Cleaning. Clean ducts mean clean registers and less dust circulating in your place of business.

ENERGY SAVINGS

Improving the HVAC system efficiency, increasing energy savings, prolonging the life of system equipment, and avoid costly repair bills.

FIRE SAFETY

For apartments, condos and hotels, dryer vents and exhaust systems with onsite laundry facilities must be also cleaned properly.

BEARTH EASY

Cleans out contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria and very small particles of dust that can cause allergic reactions so you and your employees or customers can breathe easier.
