Can You Conduct Air Duct Cleaning Without Professional Equipment?

Posted on July 20th, 2015 by DJR Cleaning Enterprises

Outdoor air pollution presents a variety of health problems for us every time we take a breath. Unfortunately, this is not confined to atmospheric pollution when we are outdoors. It is thought that, we could be more at risk from pollutants and contaminants when we are inside. It does not matter whether we are at a shopping mall, hotel, commercial building or even our own homes; simply by entering, we could be putting ourselves at risk.

What Precautions Can we Take?

Since we cannot filter out all the pollution in our air and breathe alternative clean sources, what can we do? General cleanliness and sanitary hygienic precautions are our best defense against everything from mild allergies to serious respiratory illnesses that indoor air pollution can throw at us. However, this does not stop at the normal household or office cleaner’s chores – you are likely to need more than just a mop, broom and vacuum cleaner.

Take Special Note of Your HVAC System

It is a proven fact that contamination within the distribution passageways of centralized heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems can be a major cause of the so-called “sick building syndrome.” This occurs when people occupying the facility experience bad health and comfort effects that do not relate to any specific maladies, but appear to be linked to their presence within the building.

The HVAC unit simply sucks in air from the atmosphere that undergoes some filtering. While you can easily clean the filters yourself, certain microscopic organisms can still pass through them. Once into the passageways, the contaminants build up quickly and are distributed out through the vents into all parts of the building. Removing vent covers and peering inside might offer small relief but will not tell you the whole story.

To see if you have a problem, the entire passageway network needs to be inspected by video. Specialized vacuum equipment could be needed to get to the areas of accumulation and clear them completely, based on what is found. This means that normal appliances are not suggested for complete air duct cleanings. The best way to cure your building is to call in an expert air duct cleaning company.
