Air Duct Cleaning
Clean air ducts play a crucial role in the quality of air in a building. Ducts are conduits responsible for the flow and distribution of clean air within a space. If the ductwork isn’t clean, this can contribute to poor indoor air quality, which could lead to a whole host of health problems. Air ducts naturally gather dust and dirt over time. Other airborne contaminants can also build up inside ductwork, creating a breeding ground for bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. After an incident such as a fire, additional dust, dirt, smoke, and soot particles are absorbed into the building’s ductwork. If not treated quickly and efficiently, this mix of contaminants is pushed through HVAC systems, becoming part of the breathing air within a building. The negative effects of this on your building and the people in it can be quickly eliminated with a specialized restoration or air duct cleaning plan from BELFOR, one of the most trusted and experience air duct cleaning companies.
What Is an Air Duct?
In order to understand air duct or HVAC vent cleaning, it’s important to first understand what HVAC stands for: Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning HVAC systems are responsible for airflow within a building; they ensure that the air is both safe and at a comfortable temperature. From a central unit, air is distributed throughout a building through a range of air ducts. Because of the way air ducts serve an entire building, if even small amounts of contaminants are present, they can filter into the overall airflow, affecting many people.
