When was the last time you had the air ducts in your office professionally cleaned? If you don’t know, then it’s probably been a long time, if ever. A lot of people aren’t aware of the important role that air ducts play in creating your office’s safe and comfortable work environment. While it’s important that you have your HVAC system regularly serviced, it won’t do you any good unless the ductwork is working properly as well. Here’s why commercial HVAC duct cleaning is so important.
A Cleaner Environment
Your HVAC is always moving air in and out to either heat it or cool it. All that air has to travel through the ductwork that runs through your building. That means all the dust, fibers, dried skin, and other debris that was in your office is getting sucked into your ductwork where it either stays or is blown back out again. An efficient and clean running ductwork allows that dirty air to be deposited outside where it belongs.
Better Air Quality
We’re so concerned with the outside air quality that we forget that indoor air can be unhealthy as well. When ducts aren’t regularly cleaned, the quality of the air flowing through it suffers. Eventually that air is put back out into your work environment where it can aggravate the symptoms of allergy and asthma sufferers. Your employees spend more time working in your office than practically anywhere else. It’s vital that you do everything you can to make sure their workspace is as clean and safe as possible.
Remove Health Hazards
It’s not just dust and allergens that can pollute your office environment. Bacteria, mold, mildew, smoke, paint agents, and any number of things could get reintroduced by ductwork that’s too dirty to pull them from your office air. Having your air ducts cleaned can literally reduce the amount of sick days in your office.
A Better Smelling Space
Odors are more likely to stick around an environment with poor air circulation. Employees will start to notice over time that the place they’re working in has a stale, musty quality. This can put a damper on worker morale and make it a little less inviting to come to work every day. If that’s not bad enough, imagine the effect a smelly office has on potential clients.
The ductwork is like the lungs of the HVAC system. For your air-conditioning to work properly, air has to be continually moving in and out of the system. If the ductwork is dirty, the air won’t move as easily. This puts a strain on the system as it tries to maintain the desired temperature with less air. Over time, this can damage the air-conditioning system while increasing your monthly energy bill.
