The EPA lists indoor air pollution as one of the biggest environmental health threats. With all the different ways poor indoor air quality can affect people – sinus issues, asthma flareups, allergy triggers, headaches and eye and nose irritation, it’s no wonder indoor air should be taken more seriously. An amazing 20% of all illnesses can be traced to either being caused or irritated by polluted indoor air.
The reasons for poor indoor air quality can tracked to many causes including poorly maintained ventilation equipment, dirty HVAC coils or mold.

AIR DUCT SANITIZING
Air Duct Sanitizing is a process of disinfecting as well as deodorizing ducts to kill any remaining bacteria, viruses, mold/mildew and odors. By ensuring clean ducts, a house and its occupants will benefit from residential indoor air quality.
Maintenance and preventative measures are often the most common reasons for air duct sanitizing. This service is often performed in businesses, housing communities, offices, medical facilities and other buildings that need to be certain the ventilation system is not spreading any contaminants. If an employee or occupant suffers from asthma, allergies or has a compromised immune system, keeping ventilation systems free of pollutants may be essential to their well-being.
In addition, some buildings may benefit from air duct sanitizing to remove any undesirable smells. Any dwelling that has experienced water damage or other environmental disturbance may want to sanitize and deodorize their air ducts. Neglected houses or buildings that have experienced a large quantity of animals, poor housekeeping or foul odors may also require air duct sanitizing.
HVAC CLEANING & DECONTAMINATION
A common service for commercial applications, this is usually done after a major event such as a fire, water damage or discovery of mold. After the building has been cleaned and cleared, the HVAC systems needs a complete cleaning and decontamination, or all the issues might be blown back into the building. Keeping a clean and decontaminated system is essential to the health of your tenants and a good step in remediation of any problems. By cleaning the HVAC system, you are ensuring it is back to working order and not repeating any damage already caused through the building. Commercial indoor air quality can greatly affect your tenants, your reputation and your building.
