Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Systems Cleaning and Sanitizing


The impact on Public Health and the Economic Costs of dirty and contaminated Air Conditioning systems is critically important to the following building professionals:

FACILITY MANAGERS

  • PHYSICAL PLANT DIRECTORS
  • MAINTENANCE MANAGERS
  • ENGINEERING MANAGERS
  • BUILDING MANAGERS


COMMERCIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL BUILDINGS
  • HOSPITALS
  • HOTELS
  • SCHOOLS
  • OFFICE BUILDINGS

BUILDING DUCTWORK INVESTIGATIONS WITH MICROINSPECTOR
Proper cleaning and sanitizing of HVAC systems removes allergens like mold and dust and vastly improves the quality of the air and the environment of occupants.

The cleaning of a building's Air Conditioning System (Heating, Ventilating, & Air Conditioning - HVAC) refers to cleaning various components of a building's forced air HVAC system. The components of the HVAC system include the following equipment:
  • Supply air ductwork
  • Return air ductwork
  • Grilles, Vents, and Air Diffusers
  • Heat Exchangers to include Cooling Coils and Heating Coils
  • Condensate Drain Pans and drain lines
  • Fan Blades and Fan Housing
  • Air Handler Unit (AHU), Cabinet Panels and Housing
  • Exposed Fiberglass Insulation
  • Variable Air Volume (VAV) cleaning and upgrades
  • Reheat coils
  • Vertical Air Shafts

EXCESS MOISTURE:

If these components of a buildings HVAC system are not properly installed, maintained and operated they may become contaminated with excess dust particles, pollen and other debris. When excess moisture is present the potential for microbiological growth (e.g. mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the occupied space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in exposed persons.

DIFFERENTIAL AIR PRESSURE:

When dirt, dust and debris collect on the hidden or inside components of a building's HVAC system, air pressure relationships of the building design change and alter the air flow characteristics of the occupied space. Air that is supposed to have a positive pressure relative to the space becomes negative creating a pathway for microorganisms, moisture and other building contaminants. Cleaning the HVAC system and removing the accumulated dirt and debris returns the HVAC system to its designed specifications and allows the building to function properly.

ENERGY COST:

The restriction of the movement of air across a cooling coil or heating coil, because of excessive dirt and debris build up, results in a significant energy cost to the building. The same can be said about efficiency loss of a fan or blower that has dirt collected on fan blades. Dirt accumulation prevents the fan blade from efficiently moving air.

Inside an air conveyance system there are many unseen impingement points where dirt and debris can accumulate. These impingement points are turning vanes, dampers, splitters, reheat coils, Variable Air Volume units and other devices installed to move and direct air flow. Any obstruction to air flow through a forced air system will result in a loss of efficiency resulting in higher energy costs.

CLEANING OF HVAC SYSTEMS:

The best way to ensure the cleaning of an HVAC system is to allow the A/C cleaning technician to see the surface that is being cleaned; you can't clean what you can't see is our motto. AIRMAX only uses new, state of the art cleaning technology - including video and photographic reporting - that guarantees the performance of our work. Power brushing, air drive brushes and contact vacuuming all combined with large HEPA filtered vacuum collectors are used to clean all aspects of any ductwork system.
