It’s tough enough to keep your Boynton Beach, Florida, home neat and tidy. If you can’t see or access your HVAC system’s ductwork, how can you keep the network of ducts clean, too? Though replacing your HVAC system’s air filters regularly is an easy DIY job, cleaning and sanitizing the ductwork is a job for the pros. Find out what air duct sanitizing is and learn how it can help improve your home’s indoor air quality.
How Air Duct Sanitizing Works
At Mechanical Air Conditioning Corp., we do much more than cover up the unpleasant smells in your HVAC system’s ductwork. Instead, we strive to improve the indoor air quality in your home by completely eliminating odors.
To do this, we use RGF Environmental’s Rapid Recovery Unit (RRU) system, which relies on Photohydroionization technology. Essentially, when ultraviolet (UV) light reacts with certain airborne elements in the ductwork, oxidation results. The oxidation produces ions that eliminate bad odors and remove harmful microbes.
Reduces Mold Smells
It isn’t uncommon for mold to grow in ductwork. It’s a dark, cool area, and if there’s any excess moisture, mold can thrive.
Removing mold from your ductwork is difficult, but air duct sanitation can help reduce bad smells from mold, fungi and other decaying organic matter.
Eliminates Bacterial Odors
Mold probably isn’t the only substance growing in your ductwork. Any number of bacteria may also call your ductwork home, but air duct sanitization eliminates odors from these contaminants.
Removes Household Scents
From pets and painting projects to cooking experiments, there’s an abundance of household scents that linger for longer than they should. Air duct sanitation is designed to eliminate these unpleasant smells once and for all, along with chemical fumes, tobacco smoke, cleaning product scents and other lingering household odors.
