Who Can Benefit From Duct Cleaning

All businesses have a common interest in ensuring their HVAC systems are running their best. While investing in regular duct cleaning improves the efficiency of your furnace and A/C appliances, it can also improve the overall quality of the air your staff and customers breathe. Commercial air duct cleaning is especially important for:

  • Health Clinics: Any clinic that treats patients with allergies or sensitive immune systems should make regular duct cleaning a priority. In fact, many doctors’ and dentists’ offices are mandated to ensure their ducts are kept clean. Even beyond your regulatory obligations, taking steps to improve indoor air quality in your clinic can lead to improved patient outcomes and less chance of infection when performing delicate procedures.
  • Pet Stores: Pet dander is one of the most common allergies in the world. Pet stores and veterinary clinics that take steps to improve indoor air quality have a better chance of retaining customers and generating goodwill. Dander, mites and other allergens accumulate in HVAC ducts and circulate throughout your facilities each time you use your air conditioner or furnace. Duct cleaning and air purification systems are your first line of defense in reducing the spread of these irritants.
  • Manufacturing Facilities: Duct cleaning is recommended following any major home or business renovation due to the number of irritants in drywall dust and other construction materials. For this reason, manufacturing plants that work with these products regularly should also make cleaning a priority. Protecting the health of your employees leads to reduced liability, fewer sick days and greater productivity overall.
  • Laundry Facilities: Laundromats and other businesses that have laundry rooms on the premises will benefit from regular cleaning to boost their machine efficiency and keep operations safe. The extract systems can intake a lot of lint, which forces the system to work harder. Lint buildup can also create a fire hazard. Regular cleaning curbs these risks.
  • Restaurants: Restaurants and similar food preparation establishments work with grease and odorous foods every day. These kitchens may have grease buildup in their extractor systems, which creates a fire hazard. Lingering odors can add to the musty, unpleasant smell circulating through your business. Cleaning the ductwork is beneficial for employees’ and diners’ safety.

Why Commercial Duct Cleaning Matters


In almost all industries, poor indoor air quality is a growing concern and an increasingly prevalent occupational hazard. According to The Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is one of the top five risks for public health — and it’s held this rank for many years in a row.

The quality of your indoor air starts with what’s in your duct system. In general, air pollution inside is worse than the same outside because of irritants such as:

  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Fungi
  • Bacteria
  • Dust mites
  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Animal dander

These particles can build up in contained areas like your duct system. When you use your heating and cooling systems, the particles then circulate through your air. Irritants lower the quality of the air you breathe, which can lead to health concerns for your employees and customers.

Harmful particles can exacerbate asthma and respiratory problems and lead to long-term health consequences, including neurological diseases and even certain cancers. These particles also affect the more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies. According to Total Health and Better Health magazine, fungi and bacteria in the air duct system are the reason for allergies for one out of four people who have them.

The Benefits of Commercial Duct Cleaning

Commercial air duct cleaning is only one component of improving indoor air quality, and it’s one of the easiest and most economical to have done. A duct cleaning will reduce the number of harmful particles impacting your air quality, providing benefits like:

  • A healthier environment: If your air is free of irritating particles, your environment is healthier, which adds to the comfort of those with health conditions that make them sensitive to these allergens.
  • A cleaner environment: With the dust particles out of your duct system, your facility will be cleaner. With fewer irritants traveling through the ducts and creating dust in various rooms, it will take less effort to have a clean environment.
  • Improved system efficiency: A clean system works better, which will save you money on your utility bills and extend the life of your furnace, air conditioner, exhaust system and other HVAC appliances.
  • A fresh smell: Cleaning the ducts removes the odors the dust creates as well as scents from other sources, like cleaners or food. When these particles are removed, your environment will smell better.
