Commercial Duct Cleaning
Commercial Duct Cleaning Denver
When was the last time you really looked at the surfaces and vents in your office space or thought about how well your HVAC system was working? Most business owners don’t examine every office or hallway when the building is occupied. The employees in your office, however, probably do. Has anyone complained that the office is too hot or too cold, or that there are hot or cold spots in the building? Has the janitorial staff mentioned a greater than usual amount of dust covering surfaces in the building? Perhaps your HVAC equipment breaks down frequently. You or your employees may be sneezing more after a few hours at work. These seemingly unrelated issues are actually indications of dirty HVAC ducts.
If you are experiencing any of these events, or more than one, it is time to call Action Air Duct to fix the problem. We are a top Denver, Colorado air duct cleaning service provider and we can get your dirty air ducts clean!
Dirty Air Ducts
How Did They Get So Dirty?
The room itself is the source of the dirt. Remember, in most commercial buildings, windows don’t open. So any dirt carried in from outside stays in the building. In addition, dirt, dust and debris from the activities that occur in the building stay in the building. When a heating system or air conditioning system is running, fast-moving air from a supply vent blows air around the room. This turbulent air will carry dust, soot, fibers, paper dust, and other impurities present in the room through the return vents into the duct system. The dirt and debris that enters the system then accumulates in the ductwork, reducing its efficiency. Additionally, if left unchecked for a long period of time, these impurities can begin to grow mold and mildew, exacerbating any existing allergies or respiratory issues.
What Happens if You Have Dirty Air Filters
Dirty Air Filters cause higher operating costs and more inefficient cooling or heating system operation. Some of the side effects of having dirty air filters are:
- 1Reduced air flow into the building.
- 2Increasing the costs associated with heating or air conditioning the building.
- 3Dirt buildup on the fan blades resulting in reduced energy efficiency and higher energy costs.
- 4Long term, a dirty air filter can cause buildup of debris in the air duct system, which can result in mold and allergen problems in a building, thus requiring more expensive duct cleaning or replacement.
- 5By blocking the cooling coil, dirt may reduce system effectiveness and cause expensive repairs.
- 6Frost accumulation on the cooling coil can lead to reduced, or even completely blocked, air flow in the system.
- 7Excessive accumulation of dust and debris can cause the filter to fill, allowing particles no longer being caught by the filter to clog up the blower fan, resulting in more expensive repairs.
Maintaining a commercial HVAC system is essential for keeping energy costs low and ensuring that the building’s occupants are comfortable. One of the most important aspects of maintaining an HVAC system is regular air duct cleaning. Air ducts can accumulate dust, dirt, and other debris over time, which can reduce the efficiency of your system and cause it to work harder than necessary. Regular air duct cleaning helps to ensure that your HVAC system is running at peak performance levels, saving you money on energy costs in the long run.
With the aid of specialized tools, a commercial air duct cleaning service can ensure that any dust, dirt, or debris are fully removed from your air ducts. This procedure not only boosts the effectiveness of your HVAC system but also helps rid your air supply of allergens, bacteria, mold spore, and other pollutants improving indoor air quality.

What Gets Checked by an Air Duct Cleaning Expert
Properly adjusted and balanced HVAC systems can not only provide comfortable environmental conditions and eliminate adverse health reactions, but also reduce operating costs and extend the life of HVAC equipment. Action Air Duct will examine, clean and calibrate your HVAC system components in order to ensure that all parts of your HVAC system meet the design specifications for airflow and clean air. Typical actions taken include:
- examining all supply, return, and exhaust vents
- checking HVAC control settings and operation
- checking air temperatures in different parts of the building
- checking fans and HVAC parts for dust
- Sending a camera into the air ducts to check for soiled ducts.
These visual inspections and system tests help Action Air Duct determine where there may be the biggest buildups of dirt, biological matter and debris so that its certified professionals can do the most thorough cleaning.
For the majority of building owners an HVAC system represents a comfortable working environment, and the costs to provide that environment to the tenants of the building. A few building owners, particularly those that worked with an engineer to install the HVAC system, understand that an HVAC system has a substantial impact on the building asset value by regulating moisture, temperature, and air pressure, and cleaning and filtering the air. Most importantly, building owners need to understand how much an improperly running HVAC system can impact their bottom line.
The economics of HVAC systems encompass two interconnected parts: capital costs and operating costs. The operating costs comprises energy consumption, maintenance and repair, recommissioning, replacement, and asset preservation. If a building has a poorly performing HVAC system this will have a direct impact on energy consumption, can cause premature equipment failure, and will make for an uncomfortable working environment. All of these can have a serious impact on an owner’s bottom line. Finally, a poorly maintained HVAC system can negatively impact your capital costs if the lifespan of your HVAC equipment is reduced which means replacing the system years sooner.
Your Office Air May be Affecting Your Employees Ability to Work
A major new study out of Harvard University published in 2020 in a book titled “Healthy Buildings: How Indoor Spaces Drive Performance and Productivity” discusses the effect of indoor air on worker productivity.
The study does not just demonstrate that poor air quality makes workers unhealthy, it also shows that the polluted air also causes cognitive impairment, slowing us down on cognitive tests and exercises and making it easier to get distracted. The link between air pollution and poor performance on tests was alarming, especially considering that the greater the level of particle pollution (dust, soot, dirt, smoke) in the building air was directly correlated to lower test scores.
As one of the authors of the study stated, “The office air you breathe is having an immediate impact on your cognitive function.” The researchers even pointed out that in offices with “good air” air (that has fine particulate matter below 1,000 parts per million) people still showed cognitive decline.
So, to give your employees and customers the best chance at a productive workday, call Action Air Duct today for the cleanest ductwork and the highest quality air for your commercial building.
