Indoor air quality has became a major health concern; it can lead to the serious problems including respiratory disease, dizziness, eye irritation, and general fatigue. Contamination of air associated with bacteria, fungi, and mold is believed to be the primary cause of the indoor air quality problems.
According to the U.S. EPA and U.S. Health and Human Services,”contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold,mildew,and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants through the home,” and “the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning “(HVAC). Air duct system must be well maintained, inspected, and cleaned on a pre- scheduled and periodic basis and repaired as needed.
When mold colonies grow, they produce a sticky substance called mycelium,which traps dust particles from the air and breaks down the trapped particles into food. By preventing the growth and establishment of colonies, the various effects caused by biological contamination in the air-handler can effectively be controlled.
Biocide Sanitizer flush is the answer, and the long term control is possible with UVC or UVGI light germicidal irradiation unit. Learn more. Controlling this contamination is essential to maintaining the quality of air inside your home and the system efficiency.
How is sanitizing done on a air duct system?
After vacuuming and agitation, a giant gas-powered vacuum is attached on a main duct of a system; this part of the ductwork is under strong negative pressure which turns vent lines that branch off the trunk line into separate vacuum lines.
Then we block all the vents under pressure and open one at the time, causing tremendous suction that helps the ULV Fogging machine to deliver disinfection solution through to the main duct. The suction from the main duct takes disinfection solution and pumps it outside. When done properly, the solution covers and treats 100% of the system’s surface. At the end, your air duct system will be not just be clean, it’ll also be sanitary.
