After a long and difficult winter, it is finally getting closer to the end of another school year. Now is the time for school administrators to be thinking about inspecting and cleaning their HVAC systems and air ducts. Dirty air ducts and HVAC equipment leads to poor air quality, which leads to an increased potential for health problems amongst students, faculty, and staff.
In addition, a system that is poorly maintained is not operating as efficiently as it could be, which can lead to higher operating, maintenance, and repair costs.
Duct & Vent Cleaning of America, Inc. is here to help. Our team of professionals can inspect and clean your HVAC system and clean your ducts, which will greatly improve the indoor air quality of your school. Unwanted indoor pollutants including mold, fungus, bacteria, and mites will be removed, which will greatly improve the health of those who spend time in the building.
The techniques that we use to clean the air ducts are specific to a particular HVAC system including accessibility, and obstacles that might be encountered such as sheet metal screws, air flow dampers, and reheat coils. Therefore, we may use a combination of various tools, HEPA vacuums, pneumatic brushes, and air compression to get the desired results for the job.
In addition, we offer rip, strip, and re-insulation services. Climate, humidity, and improper installation and drain pan maintenance can create a breeding ground for mold to occur in the insulation. We will remove the damaged insulation and replace it with AP Armaflex closed cell elastomeric duct liner. This type of liner is better than an open cell liner because it doesn't absorb water when properly installed. Armaflex is also fiber-free, formaldehyde-free, and low VOC. In addition, its smooth surface inhibits dirt from accumulating on the surface which is another food source for mold.
The summer months are a perfect time for these types of projects, as the majority of the buildings are not occupied.
Please call us today, and we will help your school get an A+ for cleanliness on its ducts and HVAC systems.
