Commercial HVAC Mechanical Hygiene Reports
Upon a visit to your building or place of business, IAC Indoor Air Care will locate the trouble spots in the air conveyance system, with the latest technology including boreoscope pictures, robotic video inspection and mechanical hygiene reports of the HVAC system. IAC Indoor Air Care believes in providing clients with a thorough inspection and a detailed strategy for cleaning the ductwork of ANY debris.
Regular HVAC System Cleanings
Prevent Indoor Air Quality Problems
HVAC systems in buildings large and small can become easily contaminated with dust, dirt, pollutants and other undesirable organisms. What most individuals do not realize is that this contamination begins virtually from the time the system, with its accompanying ductwork, is installed when the construction dust enters.
No system is entirely tight, small holes and gaps are often present. Return air registers can bring in contaminants from the outside. In addition, HVAC system components deteriorate with natural usage over time, sometimes rusting or becoming loose, thus creating the potential for more dirt to enter.
A wide variety of contaminants can enter HVAC systems, depending upon climate and surrounding topography as well as building components that can possibly slough off as the structure itself ages. Contaminants can include dust and general particulate matter, fungus, bacteria, viruses, asbestos, deteriorating non-porous surfaces, fire and smoke and building or renovation material.
General dust and particulates accumulate over time, leading to airflow restrictions through coils and other components. Accumulated dirt can also contain mold spores that in time can lead to prolific fungal growth. In addition, dirt provides nutrients needed for fungal growth. Accumulated contaminants in an HVAC system can cause a variety of problems for building occupants, including respiratory irritations and problems related to asthma and allergies.
Synthetic mineral fibers can accumulate in new and old HVAC systems due to a range of issues such as moisture or damage by contractors. Fiber accumulation can lead to airflow restrictions in ducts, leading in turn to problems with vanes, dampers, vents and other components. The presence of fibers can also lead to many health concerns and may cause skin, eye and throat irritation.
When fungal growth occurs in an HVAC system, the problem is generally design-related instead of a maintenance issue. Fungal growth can occur whenever moisture is present. It can destroy the surface, such as insulation and paint, on which it grows, leading to airflow restrictions through coils and heat transfer components. Fungus can also cause asthma and allergy symptoms and even cause serious infection and death in immuno suppressed individuals. The presence of fungus can cause unsightly damage and staining to air registers and diffusers.
Maintaining clean indoor air is important because many people spend 90 percent of their time inside buildings. inferior air adversely affects health, the environment and the economy.
In addition, a poorly maintained HVAC that does not support clean indoor air will result in other problems such as high utility and maintenance costs. The system will also become a fire hazard through the build-up of dirt and grease and experience a shortened life.
Clean systems offer maximized operating efficiencies, lower running costs and increased life, improve building sustainability and investment return and ensure legislative compliance for maintenance, safety and energy ratings. Dirty HVAC systems account for more than half of indoor air quality issues. By conducting regular inspections and taking remediative steps if indicated, building owners can control and even eliminate any indoor air quality problems produced by dirty HVAC systems.
