Ductwork Cleaning and Maintenance

The Importance of Ventilation Ductwork Cleaning

Dirt, dust, and debris are no strangers to industrial Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems – and when they build up in those systems, they can interfere not only with the efficiency and workload of the HVAC system, but also with overall operational and product quality in the facility. The best way to combat the effects of these foreign materials and particulates is to invest in professional and thorough HVAC systems cleaning from Hydro-X Air.

Dirty air ducts can also hit businesses on the bottom line, as the dirt, dust (including combustible dust), and debris in air ducts forces HVAC systems to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. This harder work leads not only to higher utility bills, but also an increased risk of equipment failure, often requiring replacement.

 

Meeting the Legal Requirements

Under The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations, building owners and managers have a legal obligation and a duty of care to ensure that enclosed workplaces are ventilated with fresh, purified air. If a mechanical system is provided, it must be cleaned, maintained and inspected regularly. Suitable records need to be kept showing evidence that the ductwork continues to meet current regulations.

All our works meet B&ES TR19 standards. Whether you are in an office, hospital, hotel, school, college, university, factory or in the pharmaceutical industry, our highly qualified, highly trained staff with Confined Space Certification can ensure you meet all current guidelines.

Hydro-X Air also complies with the Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 03-01: Specialised Ventilation for Healthcare Premises.

On completion of any ventilation ductwork cleaning works a full post clean validation report will be supplied containing a description of works, method statement, photographic evidence, verification results and certification.
If you have any questions on your ductwork or ventilation systems, or are not sure what you need to do to maintain safe, clean and efficient systems, do not hesitate to contact us.
