Poor Quality Duct Work Cleaning : Is it Worse Than No Duct Cleaning?

Duct Work Cleaning is an essential part of maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.  And it is for good reason that it is a legal requirement to carry out Duct Work Cleaning at least every two years.  Even with a regular regime, the dust and debris that builds up inside your ventilation ducts can cause serious issues, so it is important that they are thoroughly cleaned throughout. 

This makes choosing a best in class Duct Work Cleaning company an equally high priority.  Not only should the company be HVCA registered, it is important to check credentials and references to ensure the work that is carried out is up to scratch.  If it isn’t, while your business may be legally covered, your ducts could still be putting your workforce and your livelihood at risk. 

The breakdown of a ventilation system could cause serious inconvenience and possibly even loss of earnings, while corrosion within the system can be expensive to repair. 

And the risks don’t stop there.  Without Duct Work Cleaning, the dust and debris inside the pipes create the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and germs, leading to poor air quality and potential health problems ranging from colds and flu right through to the spread of MRSA in more sensitive environments such as hospitals and care homes.  Fire is an equally potent and serious threat.

What's worse, if you have had your Duct Work Cleaning done regularly, you have all your paperwork in order and have ticked all the legal boxes, but the work has been done by a company with poor standards, all of these are a totally invisible risk to you.

Luckily, avoiding these pitfalls is relatively easy, by asking a few questions before employing a new Duct Work Cleaning company.

Finding out whether the company is HVAC qualified, as well as whether they are safe contractor approved, should always be your first query, as this is a vital part of the legal requirement and will give you peace of mind knowing that the company is regulated.

It is also good to know how long the Duct Work Cleaning process will take and what it will entail - this will give you a really good indication of whether it will be done properly, especially when compared against other proposals.

Finally, it is worth checking whether the price is guaranteed and if you are assured of work satisfaction.
