The BioClean Duct sanitizing sprayer is able to apply duct sanitizer directly on the walls. It allows for more Bio-chemical to kill bacteria than traditional Fogger units. You can control how much Bio-chemical is applied to the most critical areas. The register’s “end-of line” ducting is the lowest pressure and is most susceptible to bacterial buildup. For proper duct cleaning, you will need to use more Bio-Chemical.
Every time I have my ducts cleaned, I’m always asked if they want to be sanitized. Does that make sense?
Great question. You can answer that question with yer or no.
Yes. When done correctly, this service can be very beneficial. Your duct system is the “air you breathe system”. It is dark, dusty and humid, but it is also active during certain seasons. These conditions are ideal for the growth of bacteria and mold.
No. There are very few benefits to Sanitizing Air Ducts. This is because the way most companies do it or the solution used does not work. Many companies spray a scented solution that may or may not be a disinfectant. It is not possible to get the best results if you don’t follow the correct principles of sanitizing. Many companies offer this service free of charge. You get what you pay for.
These are the factors that make it possible to apply a sanitizing product effectively:
1. Apply to clean surfaces. (After proper cleaning)
2. Registered, effective Sanitizing Ducts at the appropriate dilutions.
3. Time taken to sleep depending on the solution. (5 – 20 minutes)
It is not worth the cost of this service if these principles are not followed.
This is most likely a spray that a duct cleaner uses to clean the vents. A false sense of cleanliness is created when you pay for what you get.
To ensure the effective application of quality sanitizing agents, the company must follow a minimum 15-step process. You must allow the sanitizing agent to settle for at least 15 minutes before it is absorbed into your system.
Your mother and mine both taught me that “Anything worth doing is worthwhile doing right.” Otherwise, save your money.
The entire system must be cleaned from top to bottom if you want healthy and clean air ducts. To ensure thorough cleaning, we use high-powered external duct vacuums, pressure hoses and other cleaning tools. Compare the reputations of duct cleaners, thoroughness and cost upfront.
An attached vacuum system will be connected to your furnace plenum’s supply side and the return side.
The vacuum is then separated into two zones, “supply” & “return”, and the filter is removed. This allows the vacuum to work more efficiently and provides better suction throughout your heating system.
To create strong suction, all supply registers and return conduits are sealed.
One register is opened, and a compressed-air (175psi), snake/whip is used. The vacuum then pulls out any remaining debris. To ensure that the entire duct is cleaned, a number of cleaning heads can be used. The register is sealed again and then the process is repeated for all registers.
This is the same procedure that is used to clean the “trunk” (main conduit to which all supply lines attach)
After a commercial air duct cleaning, furnace filters can be reinstalled. All registers must be unsealed and zone separators must also been removed from the plenum.
The Sanitizing Air Ducts can be applied by an atomizer at each supply branch, and then fogged throughout the entire ductwork. EnviroCON is a product that eliminates odors from their source by using a chlorine dioxide release process. This destroys the organisms at their origin. EnviroCON, which is EPA-registered, safe and low toxicity, has no perfumes nor masking agents. It inhibits the growth and growth of odor-causing organisms, as well as those associated with mold, mildew, and bacterial growth in HVAC systems.
