Duct cleaning should be included in HVAC COVID-19 response, NADCA says

As the world shelters in place, duct cleaning services may take center stage as building owners and homeowners look for ways to improve indoor air quality. The indoor air quality will be on everyone’s minds as they go back to work. Homes and personal workspaces should be a sanctuary but, unfortunately, we generate a lot of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals just by staying inside. Due to the spread of COVID-19, a greater consumer demand to “sanitize” or “disinfect” HVAC systems has become a growing concern. Existing HVAC systems should be optimized for not only energy efficiency but also hygiene. Numerous antimicrobials on the market have been approved for use in HVAC systems and in HVAC ductwork. Click the link for a list of EPA approved disinfectants. At Clean Ducts Orlando, we have taken the appropriate measures to be equipped with the proper training, equipment, and insurance to perform these services and have experience in dealing properly with other biological contaminants. During this time, all of our services remain available.
