Pollutants That HVAC Sanitizing Will Remove

Posted 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.”
