Commercial Commercial Duct Systems- Out of Sight, Out of Mind Dirty Return Ductwork in a Commercial Property

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

SERVPRO of Danbury/Ridgefield Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Indoor air quality, inefficient air filtration and ductwork 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.

High humidity in the building or water leaking into the ducts provides the moisture needed for mold to develop. Mold in the ductwork releases tiny spores that will end up circulating through your whole building. In addition to aggravating allergies and asthma, exposure to mold spores can increases risk of upper respiratory infection.

Pest infestations are another reason to SERVPRO of Danbury/Ridgefield professionally clean your duct system. 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.

However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. At least once every three or four years, have your duct system professionally inspected to check if it's due for a cleaning. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
