How SERVPRO Helps: Commercial Duct Cleaning
Do you have too much dust in your building? If a new odor has been flowing through your vents perhaps it is time to consider addressing the air quality in your building. Because it is fairly common for commercial ducts to be made out of metal this post will focus on that.
If your ducts are flex material, you can go to our previous post on residential vents.
- How SERVPRO Helps: Residential Duct Cleaning
Ducting material is taken into consideration in order to properly inform SERVPRO of Alexandria on what tools will be used to clean them. It is important to keep the structure of the vent as undamaged as possible, although there are exceptions. Having metal ducts will let technicians use a more aggressive approach to properly dislodge any particulates that may have adhered to the internal surfaces.
The rest of the process is fairly similar to that of a flex duct. Our crew will seal off every vent with perforated adhesive sheets so they are easy to remove and won't leave any residue behind. A negative air machine will be attached to the register closest to the return to pull suction on the system. The technicians will then go through each individual vent, or register, and run pressurized air with a 360 degree nozzle and a whip to reach all of those hard-to-get spots. The air nozzle and whip are inserted through the vent which will dislodge and push/pull all debris and dust to the suction point. The debris is captured in the negative air machine which contains a hepa filter. Hepa filters are crucial when trying to trap dust, mold or any other airborne particles that are smaller than the human eye can see. Once every vent has been addressed, the technician will take a diffuser filled with scented antimicrobial liquid and disinfect the vent thus giving your building a fresh smell.
