Why Commercial Buildings Need Duct Cleaning

8/5/2017 (Permalink)

With all of the regular maintenance of a Commercial Building, do you also need to clean your ducts regularly?

If your building is a motel, hotel, casino or school,it is recommended to have them cleaned once a year to stay on top of any build up or issues in the ducts.

Poor indoor air quality, a weak air filtration system  and duct leaks can all result in dust entering the duct system. This dust can accumulate to the point that it starts to break off and re-enter your air. When this happens, you may notice your workspaces become dusty faster.

Occasionally because of high humidity or a water leak, mold may start to grow in the ducts. Mold in the ducts releases tiny spores that will end up circulating through your whole building. In addition to aggravating allergies and asthma, exposure to mold spores increases risk of upper respiratory infection.

Pest infestations are another reason your ducts should be checked and cleaned. It's not uncommon for mice, squirrels, bees, and other pests to find their way into a duct system. Once inside, they leave behind nesting material, hair, and dead insects. Particles of these are then blown out into your rooms.

To protect your business, employees and customers, it is wise to have your ducts cleaned and maintained annually.  This is just one more of the services provided by SERVPRO OF EUREKA. Give us a call today! 707-445-0900
