Efficient HVAC Cleaning

If you’re not sure whether your ducts need to be cleaned, they probably do. At Efficient Hygiene Services, we provide ductwork cleaning for commercial and industrial clients across South East Queensland, including Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Tweed Heads.

Neglecting duct cleaning can have a detrimental effect on the operational efficiency of your HVAC system. It also presents a risk to the health of staff and/or customers. We use pneumatic and mechanical agitation equipment, paired with HEPA negative air machines, to safely remove all foreign contaminants.

Contact Efficient Hygiene Services today and benefit from a wealth of experience. We also provide ductwork treatment and remediation services. Our team meticulously adhere to Australian Standards 1668.2.

Benefits Of Regular HVAC Cleaning

  • Improve the efficiency of your HVAC system: Regular cleaning of your HVAC system is the best way to ensure its longevity and functionality. Regular cleaning is a great way to ensure that your HVAC system can continue to efficiently provide hot and cool air without using too much energy.
  • Cleaner air: Regularly cleaning the ducts is the best way to ensure that the air being regulated around and breathed in is safe, healthy and clean. Clean air contributes to improving and maintaining your overall physical health. Poor air quality can lead to issues like headaches, nose and throat irritation and dizziness.
  • Reduction of allergens: Regularly cleaned ducts significantly reduce the spreading of allergens which can cause irritation and discomfort. This is especially valuable in commercial buildings as well as residential buildings.
  • Odour reduction: Cleaning your HVAC system is a great way to reduce the possibility of odours recurring and lingering within the space. With clean air being regularly pumped around the rooms, the chances of air polluting odours staying around are significantly limited.
  • Prevents the build-up of mould: Perhaps one of the most important advantages of cleaning your regular HVAC system is to prevent the build-up of mould. Clean HVAC systems prevent the growth of mould by reducing the number of skin cells, dust and other contaminants that encourage mould to thrive.

HVAC Mould Removal Process

  1.  The first step to removing mould from air ducts is to shut off the heating and cooling system completely.
  2. When the areas of mould have been identified, the mould will be cleaned thoroughly with brushes and cleaning equipment that can properly remove the mould.
  3.  The above process is repeated if necessary considering the extent of the mould issue.
  4. Any cleaning rags, equipment and brushes must be disposed of correctly. The correct disposal via airtight bags is important for health and safety maintenance.

Professional HVAC Cleaning & Sanitisation

The HVAC system must be cleaned using mechanical cleaning methods designed to dislodge and extract contaminants from within the HVAC system components.

Such mechanical cleaning techniques which employ sizeable vacuum collection units, portable vacuum collection units, mechanical agitation systems, hand brushing tools, pressurised air sources, pressurised water sources, plus other tools and equipment shall convey the particulate and debris to a collection device in a safe and controlled manner.

It is required that mechanical cleaning techniques of duct systems incorporate the use of collection devices of sufficient capacity to create a consistent pressure differential between the ductwork being cleaned and the surrounding area.

These machines must be operated continuously during cleaning. Collection devices must be used to convey and collect debris and prevent cross migration of dislodged particulate during the mechanical cleaning process.

A vacuum collection device must be connected to the hvac component being cleaned through pre-engineered openings. The vacuum collection device must be of sufficient capacity that containment of debris and the protection of the indoor environment are maintained.

Dislodging contaminants from duct system components must be accomplished through mechanical agitation techniques. Mechanical agitation techniques requires the use of mechanical agitation devices to dislodge debris adhered to interior HVAC system surfaces, such that debris may be safely conveyed to vacuum collection devices.

Agitation devices may include cable driven brush systems, compressed air systems, power water wash systems, pneumatic and electric driven brushes, and hand tools such as contact vacuum brushes.

Contact vacuuming utilising HEPA-filtered equipment must be performed in designated areas of the HVAC system. Cleaning must be performed by the application of the vacuum in combination with a brush attachment directly to the contaminated surface.

It is highly recommended the HVAC component being remediated using HEPA contact vacuuming also be negatively pressurised using a vacuum collection device.
