Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Chicago IL - ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons - Commercial Services

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons provides professional Air Duct Cleaning Services to commercial properties in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Are dirty air ducts costing you money?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25-40% of the energy used for heating or cooling is wasted. Indoor air pollutants require an HVAC system to work harder to heat and cool a facility. Pollutants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated an average of 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this recirculation causes a build-up of pollutants in the duct work. Removing these pollutants allows the HVAC system to work more efficiently and results in energy savings.*

Indoor air pollutants can also cause serious health problems for employees who have respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders or environmental allergies.

Other benefits of air duct cleaning by ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons include:

  • reduced potential for mold growth
  • extended HVAC equipment life
  • a healthier environment for allergy sufferers
  • removal of unpleasant odors

What to expect from ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons air duct cleaning.

Our powerful vacuum system will first be connected to the air duct near the furnace. Commercial grade products and equipment will then be used to dislodge the contaminants and debris in the air ducts. The powerful vacuum will then pull the contaminants out of the ducts and through the filtration system, returning clean air back into the facility. Once the system is cleaned, all access holes are resealed, returning the duct system to a like new, clean condition.

Pre-Cleaning Instructions:

  • For safety, the technician should be shown where the fire extinguisher and first aid kit is located.  Also it is best to provide them with any emergency contact information. 
  • Duct cleaning can be noisy. It is best to do it during non-work hours.
  • Clear work areas. Ask your technician how much space is needed around each air vent register and how much space they will need around the furnace and air conditioner.  It is best to have these areas cleared beforehand.
  • Make sure all personnel are aware that the ducts are going to be cleaned and that all offices and rooms that are serviced remain open and un-locked.
  • Prior to cleaning, perform a walkthrough of the facility to go over where protective coverings such as drop and corner guards will be placed.  Also it is necessary to go over the HVAC, how it will be cleaned, and the accessibility of it.
  • Coordinate with Building Engineer or Superintendent to go over specifics of building layout and safety.

Post-Cleaning Instructions:

Once the air ducts have been cleaned in your facility, be sure to communicate this with the Building Engineer or Superintendent. He/she may have turned off the sprinkler system, the alarm system or any other equipment or mechanical systems necessary to have your air ducts cleaned.

TIPS: Maintaining a clean HVAC system

In a commercial facility, a filter maintenance schedule should be established be based on the manufacturer’s recommendations, the environmental conditions of the facility, and type of facility and industry. Regular vacuuming will also help reduce airborne dirt and debris.

FAQs

  • Is air duct cleaning expensive?

The cost of the service varies and depends on factors such as the location of your business, how dirty your system is, how easy it is for the contractor to access the ducts and what your ducts are made of, and what material is used in the construction of the ducts. However, our expertise, training, and satisfaction guarantee are built into the price of service.

  • How long will it take to have my air ducts cleaned?

The amount of time it takes to clean a commercial HVAC system can vary depending on the complexity of the system.
