Commercial Duct Cleaning
Commercial duct cleaning can help to keep your ductwork clear and clean.
The cleaning of ducting in any HVAC system is essential and leads to benefits for the business, for your buildings, and for the health of all employees and visitors.
A fully-functioning HVAC system relies on clean ductwork to enable the smooth passage of airflow. Dust and dirt particles can soon build up through normal operations and this can lead to the whole system breaking down.
Particles can block other elements, such as compressors, fans, and bearings, and this can lead to downtime, costly repairs, and excessive energy usage. Some particles can even cause a health hazard if they circulate in your premises, causing respiratory problems or spreading disease.
Remember that it is the owner or occupier’s responsibility to maintain commercial ductwork in a good and safe condition. The regular cleaning of commercial ducting should be carried out by a competent person. This will ensure that your system is kept in optimum condition and that it complies with all current legislation including the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Robinsons Facilities Services can provide commercial duct cleaning services across all parts of Yorkshire to help keep your property compliant and running smoothly.
How Often Do I Need to Get Ducts Cleaned?
The frequency of commercial duct cleaning will depend on a number of factors, including the type of business, the size of the premises, and how often the system is used.
As a general rule, it is recommended that commercial ductwork is cleaned at least once every year. However, some businesses may need to have their ducts cleaned more frequently.
As well as cleaning the ductwork, some commercial ventilation systems need to have the filters changed on a regular basis. This will help to ensure that the system is working as efficiently as possible and not circulating harmful materials in the air.
What Does Duct Cleaning Involve?
The process of duct cleaning will normally look something like this:
- Inspection: The first step in duct cleaning is a thorough inspection of the HVAC system to identify any areas that may require attention. This may include checking for signs of mold growth, blockages, or other issues.
- Preparation: Before the cleaning process begins, the HVAC system is shut down, and any components that can be removed are taken out of the system. This includes registers, grilles, and air handling unit components.
- Cleaning: The cleaning process typically involves the use of specialized equipment, such as brushes, and vacuums, to remove dust, dirt, and debris from the ductwork. The cleaning may also include the use of sanitising agents to kill any mold or bacteria that may be present in the system.
- Reassembly: After the cleaning is complete, any removed components are reassembled, and the system is reconnected and restarted.

Commercial Duct Cleaning FAQs
If you use your HVAC system mainly in the summer, then spring cleaning helps to ensure that you aren’t subjecting people in the building to whatever microbes might have built up in the time it has not been in use.
As well as regular cleaning, check regularly to see any mould growth or signs of pests or vermin, or any other debris or dust that may have built up within.
It is possible that the heating and cooling of your business premises can be improved by having clean ducts that allow the air to circulate properly throughout the building and give you the most possible control.
