Air Duct Cleaning and Inspection
Improve your business’ HVAC efficiency and IAQ
Over time, residue and contaminants build up in commercial ductwork, drastically reducing the ability of the HVAC system to evenly distribute heated and cooled air. Not only do dirty ducts cause problems with the functionality of your building’s heating and cooling systems, they also drastically increase the energy required to maintain temperature in your business.
Furthermore, dirty ductwork can negatively impact Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Allowing dust, allergens, mold, and other buildup to accumulate inside ductwork can affect those with breathing difficulties or medical conditions, worsening their symptoms.
Commercial duct cleaning can help:
- Clean common irritants such as dust, allergens, pollen, and more
- Alleviate symptoms of asthma, allergies, headaches, and other respiratory ailments
- Remove harmful substances including mold, fungus, bacteria, and other buildup in your ducts
- Improve the efficiency of your HVAC and reduce energy costs
- Remove odors coming from your ductwork

Is Air Duct Cleaning Needed for A Commercial Building??
According to OSHA, about 30% of all commercial buildings suffer from poor indoor air quality. You’re probably familiar with the term “sick building syndrome” (SBS) which describes the all too common problem where employees and clients who spend time in a building experience acute problems with both health and comfort that are attributed to the particularities of the indoor air environment of a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. The complaints are often centered on a particular room or zone, or may be generalized to the entire building. For specific and diagnosed problems, the term “building related illness” (BRI) is used when the issues can be attributed directly to airborne building contaminants. In both of these cases, inspecting and cleaning your air ducts could help to alleviate these complaints and/or symptoms.
Can Cleaning Air Ducts Reduce My Building’s Electricity Bill?
In any commercial business or facility, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system probably uses more power than any other utility in your building. Studies show that commercial HVAC can be responsible for up to 39% of overall energy consumption. According to NADCA, dirty coils can reduce efficiency by as much as 37%. Dirty ductwork further reduces that efficiency.
Is Licensure and Certification Really That Important?
Although it’s not required in the State of New Mexico (but is in many other states) a cleaner without the proper training and certification can do an immense amount of damage. Cleaning ducts requires a variety of steps, such as cutting into ductwork, that can all easily go awry and necessitate costly repairs if done incorrectly. Furthermore, without a general contractors license, any unlicensed professional cannot commission repairs that are necessary, requiring a separate professional to come in and do a separate inspection and quote for repairs.
Why is Certified NADCA Membership Important?
Almost all commercial accounts require that a NADCA certified professional is hired to perform any duct cleaning. Because NADCA independently verifies its professionals for insurance and best standards, this complies with liability requirements for most businesses. Furthermore, the EPA recommends using a NADCA professional as they are widely recognized as the foremost authority on HVAC cleaning.
In NADCA members work in accordance with ACR, the NADCA Standard, which provides guidance on the proper and safe techniques required during HVAC inspection, cleaning and restoration procedures. This means that the work is done according to the absolute highest standards. There are a number of businesses who falsely use the NADCA logo on their sites.
