The Covid-19 pandemic has brought to light a series of important considerations for duty holders in commercial premises regarding air quality and the transmission of airborne pathogens around offices, workshops, schools, shops, restaurants, and other public-facing areas.
Indoor air quality has a strong impact on the health and well-being of building users, with low quality air being linked to a range of respiratory health problems, allergens, and airborne illnesses (including the common cold, RSV, flu, and Covid 19). Regular air duct cleaning can reduce the presence of airborne contaminants and contribute to healthier and cleaner air.
Regular air duct cleaning is essential in commercial premises, as this helps create a healthier indoor environment and contributes to the longevity of ventilation systems. But what exactly do we mean by ‘regular cleaning’ – considering that practical requirements vary between different types of business? Let’s look at how often you should schedule air duct cleaning in shops, offices, workshops, restaurants, and commercial food preparation facilities.
Commercial ventilation maintenance is of the utmost importance in retail, office, and hospitality settings. Of all maintenance tasks, air duct cleaning is particularly critical when it comes to helping create a healthier indoor environment for staff, visitors, and customers.
Commercial air duct cleaning services have become commonplace in recent years, with specialist companies promising effective results for businesses who are keen to improve the quality of air flow around their premises. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) units are well-known to operate less efficiently if crucial components, such as heating and cooling coils, become contaminated, but the effectiveness of cleaning supply ducts is often debated.
Many organisations have requirements for commercial air duct cleaning services, but how do we actually clean your air ducting? It’s a process that can make all the difference to energy use, health and safety, and maintenance costs, so here’s a quick guide to what we do!
Mould is one of the most dangerous substances to have in any building, yet indoor environments are perfect breeding grounds for a variety of toxic mould species. This quick guide explains everything you need to know about keeping your air safe.
Having a powerful extractor duct and fan system installed is a great way to prevent steam, mould, and airborne bacterial build-up in hotel and student accommodation bathrooms. However, your extractor system won’t run at peak efficiency forever without regular proactive maintenance, and irregularly cleaned ducts are prone to clogs, combustion, and backdraft. Regular clean-outs are the answer to both issues.
Commercial kitchen deep cleaning is a hygienic necessity that must be carried out at least once a year, or more often in a busy or intensive catering operation. Deep cleaning ensures that the kitchen is hygienic and safe, thereby protecting customers and staff from unpleasant or serious infections. During deep cleaning, areas that are normally hard-to-reach, such as behind fridges, are pulled out and cleaned. Hot equipment such as fryers and grills will also be cleaned as thoroughly as possible.
HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) systems are vital for removing dust, debris, grease, fumes, and other harmful contaminants from the workplace, preserving air quality, and assuring excellent product quality. Over time, HVAC systems accumulate debris which can affect their efficiency, so regular and professional cleaning is essential.
