Here’s What We Do
Commercial Air Systems Cleaning
Having your buildings heating , ventilation and air conditioning system cleaned could very well save on energy costs and reduce sick days for the occupants, a buildings duct system acts like its lungs and circulatory system.
Heating and cooling larger buildings is a tough job and accounts for up to half of the energy use in such buildings. On the whole, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems are by far the largest sources of energy use within a home or building.
Ironically, heating and cooling systems tend to be poorly maintained. These systems, which are used every day of the year, get dirty and can become heavily contaminated with dirt, dust, animal dander, human skin cells, construction debris and more!
Many commercial buildings have poor filtration in the air handlers , as a result you get a large amount of particulate inside the building.
When these systems get clogged full of particulate and debris they fail to operate efficiently and effectively. Dirty air ducts can trap and collect bacteria and mold. In older buildings these systems may harbor asbestos and lead dust.
Cleaning of these systems takes a specialized crew with special techniques to ensure the health and safety of the buildings occupants. True Cleaning Solutions has 15+ years in commercial cleaning, we can handle the largest of projects and hazardous material removal.
A dirty coil reduces the air flow causing a change in the coil temperature. This may lead to damage of the compressor, poor temperature and humidity control as well as excessive wear on the chiller. When considering the minimal cost of maintenance by cleaning a dirty coil to prevent costly repairs, our service, without exception, is the logical choice.
Based on research conducted by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Engineers, (ASHRAE), you can save from 10 to 25% of the average operation cost for up to 15 years of service life on you’re A/C unit, or from 25 to 55% after 15 years of operation by maintaining coil cleanliness and efficient air cleaners.
Some Facts About Coil Cleaning: As stated by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), “It is impossible to determine the cleanliness of a coil simply by looking at the surface. The surface can be bright and shiny, but the inside can be plugged solid!”
The air moving across these coils will in most cases, contain soils such as dust, dirt, pollen, grease, and moisture. Airborne contaminants will settle on the coil surfaces, adversely affecting the coils’ ability to transfer heat. Pollen, bacteria, and mold spores on the evaporator coil form a bio film that will not only reduce heat transfer but will also affect the quality of the air within a home or building. In addition, the cost of operating dirty air conditioning and refrigeration equipment is greater than you or your customer might suspect. Dirty condenser coils increase power costs. When the coil becomes fouled with dirt and grime, it cannot provide its designed — or, in some cases, even adequate — heat transfer.
The cost of dirty coils goes beyond energy use. As dirt and grime collect on the condenser, they restrict heat transfer and cause the compressor to work harder. This adds more heat to the system and causes the head pressure to rise. Rising head pressure will result in a loss of cooling capacity of up to 30%. A 10-ton system with a 30% loss provides only 7 tons of cooling. This loss of capacity will typically be most noticeable on the hottest days when cooling is needed the most.
True Cleaning Solutions uses proprietary high flow, low pressure cleaning techniques combined with state of the art probiotic, PH neutral cleaners to ensure that the coil is “restored” and not packed full of debris on the coils interior.
Air Handler Cleaning & Refurbishment
As air-handlers age, they become less efficient and can diminish IAQ. Capital improvements can help the equipment operate at optimum efficiency, but basic operations and maintenance are often overlooked.
One of the most neglected HVAC-maintenance tasks is removing soil/dirt build-up and corrosion from blower blades, drive assemblies, filter housings and compartments. Simple cleaning can improve air-movement efficiency by 50 percent.
Cleaning of the fan, fan compartment, coil and coil compartment can stop air borne particulate from circulating around a buildings duct system. Dirty air handlers and coil compartments can be the ideal breeding ground for bacteria,viruses,mold and fungus.
Evaluating the cost of replacement vs. refurbishment when it comes to HVAC equipment is a tough decision, but one that every facilities professional will probably face. So how do you know when refurbishment is a viable option?
If it seems that the refurbishment will offer at least 10+ years of reliable service, it’s probably worth the work and money. Some equipment is robustly constructed and can easily go beyond its statistical useful life with refurbishment.
Residential Duct Cleaning Services
Duct cleaning by itself is a misnomer, the entire air handling system needs to be addressed: vent covers, duct work, furnace fan and air conditioning coils. When you clean the entire hvac system you will get the benefits and desired results from your money spent.
True Cleaning’s specialists have the know how, procedures, state of the art equipment, certifications and training to perform this service properly. Dont trust your expensive hvac system to an untrained and non certified person.
All of TCS duct cleaning crews are National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) certified. We follow and adhere to standards for cleanliness and performance.
Dryer Vent & Exhaust Duct Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning is imperative for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional facilities, where dryers are routinely over-taxed to support extensive washing.
When a commercial dryer vent is clogged, airflow is reduced and commercial dryers are forced to work harder. This means the air traveling through the ductwork and vents gets hotter and does not dry effectively, which can cause:
Potential for lint to ignite as the heated air moves slower and temperature intensifies
Accelerated thermostat and internal sensor failure
Reduction in the lifespan of your appliance
Higher energy consumption
Some commercial buildings have a centralized exhaust system for the occupied spaces or the bathroom areas – when this gets clogged by debris the air exchange rate in the building may suffer, leading to poor indoor air quality and occupant complaints.
True Cleaning Solutions cleans dryer exhaust systems for commercial, industrial, healthcare, hotels, hospitals, condos, apartments and laundry mats.
