Employers should constantly aim to offer their employees a healthy and safe working environment. Cleaning commercial air ducts is the first step in achieving this. Air ducts are critical components of any building’s HVAC system since they are the channels for air to travel through.
Cleaning the air ducts entails eliminating impurities from the HVAC system’s channels. Dust, pollen, organic poisons, particulates, and microbiological pathogens are all examples of air duct pollutants.
These can be delivered through the HVAC system or originate in the ventilation system’s following components:
• evaporative humidifiers • filters • insulation • under coil pans • cooling towers
The National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) assists in the development of standards and methods for HVAC system cleaning.
Business Owner Responsibilities
Poor HVAC system maintenance, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), is one of the reasons for poor indoor air quality in business buildings. Employers are responsible for creating a healthy and safe working environment for their workers. They are also obligated to adhere to OSHA’s occupational safety and health regulations
