Sanitizing and Disinfecting Air Ducts

Sanitizing, Deodorizing, and Disinfecting Air Ducts

Over time, the ductwork in your home becomes dirty, which in turn has a negative impact on the indoor air quality for you and your family members. The quality of indoor air in your home can have a substantial effect on the health of you, your family, and even your pets. Contaminated air ducts are a breeding ground for a number of things that can be hazardous to your health, such as mold, mildew, and other unhealthy debris that settle into the ductwork over a period of time.

Before and After of Air Duct Cleaning services in NJ

At DRX Duct Cleaning, not only do we offer air duct cleaning services by NADCA certified professionals, but we also offer Sanitizing and Disinfecting Air Ducts, as well as Deodorizing too. After your duct work is thoroughly cleaned using our unique process of negative pressure source removal, the next step is to sanitize the ductwork. DRX Duct Cleaning only uses EPA approved products that are both safe and effective. This allows us to provide the most thorough clean possible, while keeping the safety of you and your loved ones a top priority.

The process of sanitizing your ductwork works in a very similar fashion to applying a hand sanitizer to your hands—only this type of sanitizer is formulated for ductwork. The goal of the sanitizer is to eliminate any basic bacteria that we cannot see once we have eliminated everything that we can see (dust, debris etc). DRX Duct Cleaning uses an alcohol based sanitizer by a company called Simple Green. This sanitizer will help to deodorize, and kill bacteria, giving you and your loved ones a fresh start following your NJ air duct cleaning. If you have had recent water damage, mold, or an unusually large amount of contaminants are found in the ductwork of your newly purchased home for example, you may want to upgrade to a chlorine based disinfectant instead of the basic sanitizer.

DRX Duct Cleaning applies our sanitizer using a fogging device and negative air pressure that’s sourced from our vacuum trucks. For more information about sanitizing, deodorizing, or disinfecting the ductwork in your home, contact DRX Duct Cleaning today at (908) 755-2950.

What are the Benefits of Cleaning My Commercial Office Building?

There are lots of reasons why commercial office buildings should be cleaned. Perhaps the most important reason is the health of the employees who work there. We spend the better portion of our day at work, so a healthy work environment is vital to our overall health and well-being.

Did you know there is something called Sick Building Syndrome? Sick Building Syndrome is a real health condition that occurs when occupants of a building start to experience health issues directly related to the air quality within that building. This can reduce work efficiency and increase absenteeism. The situation can be widespread, or contained in a specific area of the building. Employees may experience headaches, nausea, eye, ear, nose, or throat irritation, dry coughing, itchy skin and other troublesome symptoms. With Sick Building Syndrome, symptoms are typically reduced or completely alleviated after leaving the building.

NJ Commercial Air Duct CleaningThere are a variety of factors that may contribute to Sick Building Syndrome, but we will focus on the ones that are caused by contaminants within the duct work of the building. These include dust, bacteria, pollen, rodents and rodent droppings, fungus, and molds. Additionally, if air ducts were not covered properly during renovations, there may also be sawdust, sheet rock dust, or other construction debris present within the duct system.

The presence of visible dust or mold on vent covers themselves is not only unsightly, but also unhealthy. Furthermore, it presents as unprofessional, especially to clients that may visit your location. 

Having a proper professional commercial air duct cleaning and sanitizing the ductwork throughout your building at least once every three years will greatly reduce the risk of Sick Building Syndrome. Additionally, it will help your HVAC system work more efficiently. More importantly, it will show your employees that you care about their well-being, and it will keep your workplace looking professional and well maintained, free of both unsightly and unhealthy hidden contaminants.
