As a company who strives hard to earn money or profit, it is of course a concern for us on how and where we should spend our money. While you are at a thought of providing a good environment for your employees, I am sure Indoor Air Quality has come across your mind and then again, you start to doubt whether Indoor Air Quality is even essential for your business facility.

Now, what do you understand about Indoor Air Quality? How do one maintain good Air Quality in a facility? How much does it cost? Then finally, is it your money?

If these questions are lingering on your mind, then you are on the right article. 

Indoor Air Quality refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the building occupants. Simply, is the air in your building safe enough to breath in by the occupants.

This is when Air Duct Cleaning or HVAC system cleaning comes into question. Air duct cleaning is usually performed by freeing the dirt and debris from the walls of your air ducts. Then sucking everything out with a vacuum. This is the standard procedure but here in IAQ Diagnostics, we suggest further preventative measures like spraying a chemical layer to make sure all of the bacteria have been removed and fix leaky air ducts.

If you visit any air duct cleaning company’s website, even ours, you will be provided with a list of reasons as to why you should utilize air duct cleaning services. These reasons include removing mold, cleaning out after renovation, outdoor pollutants, clogged ducts, and alleviating severe allergies or breathing problems. 

Professional duct cleaning services use specialized tools such as blowers, vacuums, and here we use robotic tools that brushes to clean out ducts throughout your building. Air duct cleaning should also involve a thorough cleaning of the air handler, grilles, fans, motors, and coils of the HVAC system.

Air duct cleaning does not just improve your air quality but most importantly, it improves your buildings HVAC system performance and efficiency. You want to save money then you must be sure that your HVAC system is performing efficiently. 

But to begin with air ducts cleaning, it is important to have your indoor air tested to know the condition of your air. Here in IAQ Diagnostics, we provide a thorough air testing and assessment before conducting air duct cleaning because it is important to know your building needs before carrying out our services to avoid any unnecessary work.

To conclude this, air duct cleaning is a need for a facility but to make it worth is in the hands of the IAQ vendor you are hiring.

I am sure you are stuck at the IAQ assessments point. Yes? I am sure you started asking questions like; What are the indoor air quality assessments like? What are the parameters or guidelines to a good air quality? How do I know if my indoor air is bad or good? Well, you will get more about IAQ guidelines and parameters on my next blog!
