Commercial air conditioners in high traffic areas such as hospitals, fitness centers, office buildings, schools and universities require regular maintenance and cleaning. The main parts of the unit that get dirty are the supply and return ducts, cooling coil, heat exchange, blower and filters. Commercial duct cleaning is necessary to keep the air that flows through the duct system clean.
Dust that settles on furniture and dust particles in the air get pulled into an air conditioning system – the ducts also accumulate insects, rodent droppings, cobwebs, dander, smoke, chemicals, and pollen all of which get circulated. There are filters in place but these do not always have the capacity to filter all the pollutants. This dirt builds up over time causing dirty air to be circulated and if general maintenance and duct cleaning is neglected; the efficiency of the air conditioner decreases and could possibly break down completely.
The air filter and vent covers should be checked regularly for dirt and dust buildup. They should be clean and clear to the naked eye. How quickly they get dirty would depend on the size of the building, the amount of traffic and how often the cleaning staff dust and clean the area.
There are many benefits to having clean ducts circulating clean air.
You will need to contact an air conditioning company that specializes in commercial duct cleaning to get the job done professionally. They will remove and examine every fan and filter, connect a very powerful vacuum cleaner to the duct and with commercial grade products dislodge the debris and contaminants. The debris and contaminants are then pulled out through the filtration system, correctly disposed of and all access holes are properly sealed.
Indoor pollution, in some cases, has been 70% higher than outdoor pollution. With the large amount of time we spend indoors it is vital that the air circulated is clean healthy air.
