The need for cleaning may arise when your HVAC system operation has resulted in the buildup of particulate and debris which may adversely impact the indoor environment and performance of the system.
Cleaning single components or subassemblies without considering the complete HVAC system could result in a degradation of the indoor air quality.
HVAC System Inspection, Cleaning And Restoration
Maintaining a clean HVAC (Air Conditioning And Mechanical Ventilation) system is essential for keeping your commercial premises a safe and comfortable place for both your employees and customers (occupants).
However, if your facility has been contaminated, by extensive water damage including mold or mildew damage or smoke and fire, your HVAC system will need immediate attention before it is put to use again. Without properly decontaminating the system, much of the cleaning and restoration work done to the premises will be undone as soon as the HVAC system is turned back on. To prevent your HVAC from redistributing pollutants, K Clean Services provides a professional cleaning and decontamination service backed by years of experience and cutting-edge equipment, and in compliance with the ACR, NADCA Standard.
It is highly recommended that consistent HVAC system inspections be part of a building’s overall indoor air quality management program.
HVAC System Inspections are recommended by the following:
National Air Duct Cleaners Association
The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers
The Environmental Protection Agency
The National Fire Protection Association
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
The whole purpose of an HVAC and ductwork system is to keep the air quality inside your premises as clean as possible, but without proper decontamination, it ends up being completely ineffective or, worse still, harmful to the occupants of the building. We only use sanitizing agents that are Environment Protection Agency (EPA) registered to ensure a safe working environment. Our decontamination products have a minimal toxicity level, and they do not leave any active chemical residues inside the system that may cause damage or further air quality issues. KCS thoroughly cleans and decontaminates the entire HVAC system, including the air ducts, register vents, filters, and exhausts. Using specialized equipment, we can reach into the otherwise inaccessible parts of the system, and we will also disassemble it in situations where more intensive cleaning is required. .
We recognize that every situation is different, so we provide a range of professional HVAC cleaning and decontamination services to ensure that the quality of the indoor air remains at its highest possible level.
Any type of building, especially older ones are susceptible to mold due to high humidity, local climate, and poor ventilation.
Mold in commercial buildings can pose a huge risk to the public, so it’s crucial to identify it quickly by employing Industrial Hygienists and then calling on the experts from KCS for remediation. Our team of experts knows exactly how to handle a wide range of mold-related situations, and we know that timing is crucial. We will ensure safe re-entry to your building by taking care of your structure. First, we inspect the building and make an assessment of everything for health and safety. Next, we take steps to protect equipment and valuables by cleaning the affected areas thoroughly.
Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is an air pollutant that is a concern for people's health when levels in air are high. Particles in the PM2.5 size range are able to travel deeply into the respiratory tract, reaching the lungs. Exposure to fine particles can cause short-term health effects such as eye, nose, throat and lung irritation, coughing, sneezing, runny nose and shortness of breath. Exposure to fine particles can also affect lung function and worsen medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease.
Clean air is vital in hospital and healthcare facility operations to protect patients, staff, and visitors from airborne diseases and infections, as well as to provide a comfortable, healthy, and odor-free environment. The Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in the facility, referring to the air breathed by the building’s occupants, is of primary importance because of patients’ suppressed immune systems, making them more susceptible to adverse health effects. Poor IAQ ranks as one of the top five environmental risks to public health.
Faced with an influx of potentially contagious patients and their families, it is clearly imperative to reduce risk by removing airborne contaminants generated inside and outside the doors of the facility. In addition to the effects of contaminants on patients and hospital workers, corrosive gases can damage HVAC units, control rooms and electronic instrumentation, diagnostic equipment, X-ray machines, and office equipment.
One of the critical espects of HVAC System is Energy Consumption and the roles that HVAC engineering, constrution and maintenance play in optimizing energy usage. HVAC energy consumption can be reduced through cleaning.
Energy is consumed by HVAC systems through a number of processes. Air is typically distributed through the ductwork via an electrically‐powered fan. Cooling coils remove heat from the air. Heating coils add heat to the air.
Through normal HVAC usage, particulate in the air slowly collects on the surfaces of various HVAC components, resulting in a gradual loss of energy efficiency. Some loss of efficiency via a single dirty component may be minor. When the loss through each component is added up, however, the impact could be considerable. Generally, the greater the buildup, the greater the energy loss.Removal of the buildup of particulate on HVAC components restores energy performance to the system.
