We often get asked by customers about bathroom exhaust vent cleaning. This service is often a neglected area of home maintenance. However, many good reasons exist to add a bathroom vent cleaning to your annual duct cleaning service.
A bathroom exhaust vent that is used for one hour a day will filter over 2,000,000 cubic feet of air throughout the room. Multiple this time the amount the bathrooms in your house and you could be looking at a large amount of moist air. Where is this air going? From your bathroom exhaust area, the wet travels to the vent release area. In Central Florida, this typically is either an attic or a crawlspace. Now, think about this air. Beside the water particles, the vented air can also be carrying odors or other bacteria that is now in a perfect warm and humid environment ripe for growing and producing multiple harmful pollutants.
Bathroom Vent Cleaning
Multiple DIY videos and step-by-step instructions are on the internet for cleaning the outside of the bathroom exhaust vent. However, these instructions don’t cover the inside of the vent and thorough cleaning of the motor and fan. Without cleaning, the motor and the fan can start to accumulate dust, lint, dander, and other contaminants from hair and body. Added to the moisture the bathroom vent exhaust is already pulling in, this can lead to a goopy mess that collects faster than other areas of the house.
Bathroom exhaust vent cleaning will not only clear out the clutter that has started to buildup, it will also increase the life of your exhaust motor and cut down on the possibilities of mold growth. Once mold starts to grow, the spores can easily travel through the rest of the house.
Commercial Vent Cleaning
Bathroom exhaust cleaning should not be neglected on commercial buildings. For landlords, you need to consider you have no control of how your renters are using the bathrooms or that many people may be sharing one bathroom. Exhaust vent cleaning is especially important if there are multiple units and bathrooms sharing the same vent release area. You don’t want potential mold from area spreading throughout the building.
And for other commercial spaces, further factors must be taken into consideration. Besides multiple people using the same bathroom, there is an increase of the pollutants that can be found in the air, especially if any area of a building is being used for manufacturing. Even if no shower facilities exist, Central Florida humidity still has a way of creeping everywhere. Protect the integrity of your building with regular bathroom exhaust vent cleanings.
