3 Benefits of Professional Commercial Duct Cleaning

Friday, February 27th, 2015 by Lisa Pixley

Most commercial HVAC systems use air ducts in order to distribute both heated and cooled air throughout the property. This is all well and good, and ductwork is a great way of doing so, provided that the ductwork in question is in fine working condition. The sad fact of the matter is that this is not always the case. Ductwork can be compromised in a number of different ways. One of the most prevalent problems with ductwork is the buildup of pollutants, including dust, dirt, and dander, therein. Professional commercial duct cleaning in St. Cloud, MN is the best way in which to address any such problems. If you are concerned about the performance of your commercial HVAC, or if you have reason to believe that your ductwork is excessively dirty within, call Alpha Air Corporation today. We can right the situation effectively.

One of the main benefits of scheduling professional commercial duct cleaning is the fact that it can help your commercial HVAC system to function in a more effective manner. It is unlikely that enough pollutants will build up block off a section of ductwork, increasing airflow resistance. However, those pollutants can certainly clog up air filters considerably, which can make it harder for your commercial HVAC system to do its job. The harder the your system works, the more energy it will consume.

Additionally, the buildup of pollutants in your ductwork can lead to those pollutants building up on sensitive components within your HVAC system itself. This too can cause efficiency to drop, as well as forcing your system to work harder. Even worse, though, it can lead to operational problems and even damages to your equipment. By eliminating the problem, professional commercial duct cleaning can help to protect the condition of your HVAC equipment itself.

Of course, there is also the fact that air ducts, when dirty within, can help to distribute airborne pollutants throughout your commercial property. This can seriously and adversely impact your commercial indoor air quality. If you hope to maintain indoor air quality of the highest level in your commercial property, then routine commercial air duct cleaning in St. Cloud, MN is an absolute necessity.

Tools Used During Commercial Duct Cleaning

Monday, October 20th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

The employees, clients, customers, and/or tenants in your commercial building deserve to breathe clean air every day. That’s why the air filter in the return register of your ducts works with your commercial HVAC system, trapping particles so that you do not have to breathe them in every day. However, this filter may not be enough to give you the level of protection you need, failing to filter out every pollutant so that some dangerous particles may continue to circulate around your business.

If you own a commercial heating and air conditioning system, it’s vital to keep it maintained, not only for the comfort of the people in your building but for their health. Bacteria or mold may thrive in the ductwork of some buildings, and as spores circulate through the air your employees breathe those in, which could aggravate respiratory issues—and lead them to call in sick. Scheduling air duct cleaning with a technician experienced with commercial duct cleaning is one of the best ways to improve the conditions within your building. Let’s take a look at some of the tools used for commercial duct cleaning in St. Cloud.

First, technicians use a robotic camera to inspect your ducts. This helps them to detect any problem areas, but it can also let them know whether any areas of the ducts need to be sealed due to leaks and cracks. Once they have a good idea of the conditions within the ducts, they use professional-grade vacuums which create negative pressure within the ducts, thus knocking loose any dust clinging to the insides of the main air plenums and sucking it up through the vacuum hose. They also use brushes to safely and gently scrub off any remaining dirt and debris. They’ll target the register vents as well as any exhaust vents your property uses.

At Alpha Air Corporation, we’ll finish the job with an EPA-certified non-toxic sanitizing agent that will help us make sure your ducts are sanitized and ready for use. There is no chemical residue left behind and it can kill some remaining bacteria and stop mold growth.

3 Ways Commercial Duct Cleaning Improves Your Bottom Line

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 by Lisa Pixley

When you examine the expenses for your business to determine areas where you can reduce spending and improve the bottom line, “duct cleaning” might not be an additional expense you want to add. We understand why you might think this: ducts are usually an “out of sight, out of mind” part of a workplace, and people rarely give them much consideration.

However, your bottom line can improve with the addition of regular duct cleaning. We’ll show you three ways that investing in cleaning from commercial duct cleaning specialists can save you money.

And who can you call for quality commercial duct cleaning in Minneapolis, MN? We humbly suggest Alpha Air Corporation. We specialize in commercial ductwork and have NADCA-certified technicians on staff to make sure you receive the most thorough cleaning available and receive the benefits below.

Ways duct cleaning will save money

  • Less strain on your HVAC system: Minneapolis has extremely cold winters and warm summers; your HVAC system will probably stay on most of the year, and you’ll see it as a major expense on your budget. If the ducts are dirty, it will impair the flow of air through the ducts with a heavy coast of dust, and this will put strain on the system to make it work harder. And that means… higher bills. Duct cleaning will give your HVAC system the easiest airflow possible.
  • Fewer repairs for your HVAC system: Since commercial HVAC systems see heavy use, they often require repairs to restore them. Many of these repairs are avoidable with duct cleaning. A dirt contamination in the ducts will quickly lead to dirt infiltrating the cabinets of your heater/air conditioner, and this significantly increases the chance of damage that will lead to repairs.
  • Happier employees and customers: A cleaner workplace means more productive employees. A better business environment means happier customers. You can encounter problems with this if you have dirty ducts, because it will make work environment dirtier, plus it can create health problems: asthma, skin and eye irritation, coughing, dizziness… all of which will seriously impair attention and lower worker effectiveness. Duct cleaning will help give you the productive and profitable ideal workspace you need.

When should you schedule duct cleaning?

If more than a year has passed since you last had duct cleaning for your business, that’s more than enough time for dust and other contamination to build-up and create problems. Businesses should have yearly duct cleaning for the best results. Schedule your duct cleaning today and make it part of your calendar each year.
