The Importance of Good Ventilation in Your Vancouver Building
As a Vancouver property manager, you have numerous responsibilities and aspects of your building to manage – but you shouldn’t let your ductwork and ventilation go overlooked! Ductwork is easy to forget about, a literal case of “out of sight, out of mind” but that gives it an opportunity to become clogged up and cause numerous ventilation problems throughout your building. Regular commercial vent cleaning services can ensure your air flows properly and smoothly, year-round.
If not, you could be looking at several completely avoidable problems which can easily be more costly than the minor expense of periodic cleanings.
Why Regular Commercial Vent Cleaning Services Are A Necessity
Most large buildings and corporate/industrial spaces rely on forced ventilation to provide most of their airflow. That is, their central HVAC system uses mechanical means to blow air throughout the building, via ductwork.
Because the ducts run all through the building, they are largely invisible to people and mostly out of reach. This gives them the opportunity to become clogged up with all manner of unpleasant things. Dust, dirt, and greasy grime are the most common substances, but almost anything running through the ducts can become trapped. Also, even a well-maintained building will have often some vermin in it, such as mice or roaches. These invaders leave their own waste in the vents, contributing to the mess.
Regular commercial vent cleaning services from an experienced duct-cleaning contractor can clean all this out, leading to several big benefits:
1 – Cleaner air
The dirt, pollen, and other materials in the vents will tend to get blown out into the building. This can trigger the allergies of anyone inside and can be especially harmful to people who have existing respiratory conditions such as asthma.
2 – Cleaner rooms
When the grime is blown out of the vents and isn’t being breathed in it’s settling inside the rooms of your building. If you ever notice a buildup of dust around or below your HVAC system’s exit vents, that’s a big sign your ducts are dangerously clogged up.
3 – Improved energy efficiency
Your HVAC system already accounts for a huge amount of your energy use, up to 25-30% of your energy bill. If the ducts are clogged, that forces your HVAC to work even harder to push air around, driving those costs up further.
4 – Longer HVAC lifespans
The extra strain on your HVAC system can even lead to maintenance and mechanical issues if it’s forced to push air through clogged vents for too long. The extra strain builds up and ultimately shortens the lifespan of these very expensive appliances.
