Regular cleaning of ventilation ducts is an important component of indoor air quality services and regular maintenance of a system. ACT’s certified technicians are trained and experienced in duct cleaning for all types of facilities, including healthcare, where biological contaminants can factor into the equation, in addition to standard contaminants like dust and mold.
Not every HVAC firm is equipped to provide the level of care that safe duct cleaning requires. ACT has developed a process that focuses on testing, identifying and resolving any issues that may contribute to diminished air quality while thoroughly cleaning all parts of the system, from vents back to heating coils and fans. Preventing the spread of contaminants while cleaning is an important consideration, and the National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) has set strict protocols, which ACT follows and exceeds.
For lab and healthcare facilities our process is especially rigorous, including the use of High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuums to trap the smallest airborne particles, and compressed air whips, the gold standard in duct cleaning, to remove debris and scrub the ducts. ACT can also use high-quality rotation brushes to remove heavy build-up. Most importantly, the work is performed with HEPA containment units, using negative air pressure to clean the air and prevent contaminants from being released.
