Are you putting your staff, customers and community AT RISK?
SICK BUILDING SYNDROME IS REAL, AND THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES
A building’s air duct network acts as its respiratory system. Dirt, dust, debris and microbial growth that accumulate inside of air ducts hidden from view “congest” the system and make it difficult for the building to “breathe” properly and function efficiently.
In fact, a 1987 ASHRAE study concluded that maintaining system cleanliness would reduce average operation cost by 10 to 25%.

The importance of Cleaning and maintaining your ducts
Having clean, healthy air indoors is a necessity for a productive building. If your ducts are not clean, dirty air will circulate and place the occupants of the building at risk form a health and safety perspective–and cost you money.
Over time dust, dirt and lint accumulate in your duct work, which provides the perfect environment for bacteria to breed. This then spreads around the building, and from person to person. Additionally, indoor air contaminants such as fibers and chemicals from carpeting , fabrics, furniture, cleaning and equipment can have a detrimental impact on building occupants. For those suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, dirty ducts could aggravate their symptoms and prolong recovery time. Having clean ducts will increase your employee’s productivity and lead to a decrease in sick leave, thereby saving you money.
Dirty ducts not only can affect the health of your employees, residents or customers, but also represent a fire risk due to a build up of dirt, dust and debris.
Having a clean, efficient ducted system means less energy usage and therefore a reduction in utility costs. In fact, up to 15%–20% can be saved on utility bills after servicing and cleaning. Regular maintenance will also increase the life of the mechanical workings, reducing premature failure of HVAC components, and avoiding unnecessary maintenance or replacement costs during the lifespan of the ducted system.
Specialised equipment creates high pressure air turbulence inside the ductwork, dislodging built up dust and debris from inside the ducts. At the same time an industrial strength vacuum system (with HEPA filter) collects the dust and debris.
The HVAC unit is then uncovered to gain access to the fan which is also thoroughly cleaned along with the filter.
Once all the cleaning processes have been completed. BACIGAS , which is a natural germicide generated from Tea Tree Oil, is then injected into the RAV, distributing the gas throughout the ductwork to treat and sanitize the entire system.
BactigasTM (from BOC) has been designed to surface sanitize air conditioning ductwork, assisting with the control of bacteria, mould and fungi. Studies performed at the University of WA and University of NSW, using the British Pharmacopoeia Antimicrobial Test (BP 1982 Appendix XVC) achieved immediate microbial count reductions of:
• Staphylococcus Aureus (Bacteria)
• Pseudomones aeruginosa (Bacteria)
• Candida albicans (Yeast)
• Aspergillus niger (Mould)
