Pollutants That HVAC Sanitizing Will Remove

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

Duct cleaning is a basic service that homeowners and business owners alike need to have done every few years (sometimes more) to help maintain indoor air quality and to reduce the strain on the heaters and air conditioners hooked up to the ducts. However, sometimes standard duct cleaning isn’t sufficient to eliminate the pollutants that can develop inside an HVAC system. This is where HVAC system sanitizing and deodorizing comes into play. Sanitizing targets specific biological dangers that can develop inside an HVAC system that will lead to severe problems with indoor air quality. Technicians provide a complete cleaning of the ductwork that goes farther than regular duct cleaning.

Just as cleaning ducts requires trained professionals, HVAC sanitizing and deodorizing requires the work of specialists with high-end equipment.

Here’s what HVAC sanitizing will remove:

  • Bacteria: Bacteria develops in humid and closed-in environments, and ducts are ideal places for them to start growing. This bacterial growth can lead to lung infections and other respiratory problems.
  • Mold: Mold is one of the most common and harmful of contaminants that can enter buildings. Molds release toxic spores that can cause a number of different health complications, and they are especially dangerous for people with allergies and asthma.
  • Mildew: This is a less destructive and unhealthy pollutant—but it can lead to an unpleasant work environment from the damp smell permeating the ductwork. If mildew appears in a ventilation system, it can also points to problems from water damage that may have affected other parts of the HVAC system.

The sanitizing process that we use at Alpha Air Corporation eliminates these pollutants without leaving chemical residues that will lower indoor air quality. The sanitizer rapidly degrades into non-volatile compounds soon after it is used. The deodorizers also attack the sources of smells and destroys them, rather than covering them up with another odor. Neither process will do any damage to the ductwork in your building.

Please take the possible presence of mold, fungi, and bacteria in your home or workspace seriously. “Sick Building” syndrome is something that you can avoid and eliminate with the proper planning and with the assistance of professionals. Our Minneapolis, MN sanitizing team has the residential and industrial experience and certification necessary to clean out the biological hazards from your HVAC system and make sure you have a “Healthy Building.”

Why use professional fire restoration services

  • Insurance mandated: Restoration services are often mandated by insurance companies, and it will be your responsibility as business owner/homeowner to hire a company to handle the job. A professional restoration service will work closely with the insurance company to make the process of claim investigation and estimation go as speedily as possible.
  • Safety: Fire can create toxic hazards from chemicals that are left behind in the wreckage. Professionals know how to deal with these hazardous substances. Fire-damaged areas are also dangerous because of the risk of collapses and falling debris, which is not only dangerous but will lead to additional property damage. You want only the best-trained restorationists handling the work.
  • Clean-up of all types of fire damage: Fire can damage a building in multiple ways because of the different kinds of smoke and soot. The residues left behind—wet, dry, protein—all need special attention that only professionals can give.
  • Cleaned ducts: You want to make sure that when the work is completed that the restored ductwork does not still contain debris from the fire that could spread harmful particles through the air. With professional restoration, keeping the ductwork clean is the primary concern.

As an added benefit, our team at Alpha Air Corporation uses a special sanitizing agent for ductwork restoration that leaves behind no chemical residue or volatile compounds and will effectively eliminate odors.
