How does the cleaning of the air ducts work?
To sanitize the air ducts, it is necessary to remove the particulate dust settled inside the ducts using specific techniques, performed by qualified personnel. These operations must be carried out after a thorough inspection of the aeraulic ducts Oakland hvac contractor.
Cleaning the air channels also cuts down contamination caused by bacterial pollutants and sanitizes the air that circulates in the rooms.
The visual and technical inspection of the air ducts is the crucial phase that allows to evaluate the state of the aeraulic system and consequently to indicate the most suitable technique for the removal of pollutants.
The methods of intervention for the remediation of canals always provide for the mechanical removal of contaminants through the use of:
compressed air systems
Air duct remediation techniques
The reclamation of the air channels consists of three distinct operations, which are carried out in succession, depending on the state of the system to be reclaimed. These are CLEANING, DISINFECTION or SANITIZATION and CONSERVATIVE RESTORATION:
The cleaning of the air channels consists in the removal of visible dirt from surfaces and environments by manual or mechanical means
The disinfection of air ducts uses chemicals, such as specific disinfectants, or physical agents, such as heat, to eradicate pathogenic microorganisms present on the surfaces
The conservative restoration consists in the restoration and recovery of deteriorated or corroded surfaces inside the channels or air handling units, in the restoration of masonry channels or with internal insulation in FAV (artificial glass fibers).
TECHNICAL NOTE: when we talk about SANITIZATION we mean the process aimed at making the environment and the equipment hygienically healthy which consists of two distinct but not at all independent phases: Cleaning – Disinfection or Sterilization.
