HVAC Steam Coil Cleaning

“The Steam Revolution” in Cleaning

Here in IAQ Facility Services, we choose what is best for your HVAC system and we choose steam cleaning because the air that flows through the coils of the MVAC system contains dust, pollen, and other particles. Heat alone ensures that the bonding between microorganisms and the surface structure is broken down while the low pressure allows the steam to deeply penetrate difficult-to-reach areas. An eco-friendly alternative, we do not need to use any harmful chemicals, and yet, it can still remove and clean the dirt that builds up deep inside the system. It effectively removes the grime which, otherwise, is extremely hard to remove from the HVAC coils.

Conventional Coil Cleaning VS. Steam Coil Cleaning

Our Process

The air that flows through the coils inside the HVAC system contains dust, pollen, and other particles. Since the coils inside are usually wet or damp due to the humidification process, dirt and bacteria easily sticks to the coils. This dirt, when gathered inside, affects the efficacy of the system.

How We Operate

step 1

Preparation

The area will be contained to retain heat and humidity out of the indoor environment. After that, both electrical components and ductwork are concealed to shield them from heat.

step 2

Testing

Coil Cleanliness Verification Test (CCVT) is conducted to identify which coil is badly impacted by performing the test repetitively. This indication is also useful to report about the state of the coil before they are cleaned.

step 3

Cleaning

HEPA vacuum – pre-steam enzyme – steam – CCVT – post-steam.

step 4

Measurement & Verification (M&V) Report

Contains CCVT before, during and after testing recorded, QA job description checklist, photos and suggestions for any remaining problems that may need recognition. This report is provided for each AHU that has been cleaned, in detail, which allows data to be tracked easily on the tools.

HVAC New Life Restoration

AntiMicrobial Coating, An Alternative Solution to HVAC Life Restoration

For an intense and long-lasting finish, clients can choose the HVAC AntiMicrobial Coating, which incorporates garnet sandblasting and the use of a highly advanced paint that is resistant to harsh environmental conditions. The paint is subjected to extreme heat and cold temperatures, proving its flexibility in handling the extreme operational demands of HVAC systems.

Coated on the interior and exterior of HVAC components, the Aqua Aero AMPower® service paint is water resistant. The HVAC systems are able to withstand damage due to high moisture, corrosion and rust. It utilizes non-pathogenic micro-biocides to keep algae, germs, and mold at bay.

More benefits of AntiMicrobial Coating:

Benefits of
Antimicrobial coating

Costs less than replacement
Repurposes HVAC equipment
Extends HVAC equipment life
Energy saving
Less maintenance calls
Improved indoor air quality
Improved building valuation
5 years warranty

Our recommendation to restore total AHU
Reduce replacement costs by 10% to 30%

Replacing the AHU is far more costly, hygienically repairing it is the economical option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Steam cleaning cleans every layer of the coil, removes contaminants, debris and pathogens that struck inside the coil compared to chemical coil cleaning that only removes dirt that lies on the surface.
Coil cleaning is necessary to ensure that the HVAC system could operate at its optimal efficiency, by being able to supply clean air (air that has been filtered using coil). The failure of maintaining the coil (cleaning the coil, removes dirt) will reduce the lifespan and indirectly distribute uncleaned air to be breathed by the occupants.

HVAC coil cleaning needs to be serviced at least once a year. 

Yes. When HVAC coil cleaning is being done or in other words, serviced, it will help in reducing the energy maximization as the HVAC system could operate at its optimal efficiency. One of the causes of bills rose higher than its normal when the HVAC system needed to push its military operations to the max in order to suction adequate air to be supplied to the facilities.
