Proudly serving Connecticut, Massachusetts & Rhode Island!
At a hospital, medical facility or nursing home, you work hard to keep your patients healthy. However, if it’s been a while since you’ve had your HVAC air ducts clean, they could be undermining your efforts. Hospitals and nursing homes produce a large number of contaminants that can clog your ducts, and patients are particularly susceptible to those contaminants being circulated by the heating and air conditioning. Maintaining high indoor air quality is essential, and at Better Air, we specialize in professional-level services that clean each part of your HVAC system. Our team of certified professionals is highly experienced in working with healthcare services in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. We maintain the highest possible standards to keep your air duct systems efficient and healthy.
How Hospital and Nursing Home Air Duct Systems Become Dirty
In any building, HVAC air ducts gradually build up contaminants such as dust, dirt, hair and pollen. In hospitals and nursing homes, this issue is aggravated by a couple of factors. Most healthcare facilities use linen sheets in all of their patient rooms. These sheets cause linen fibers to build up quickly within the building’s air ducts. In addition to clogging the HVAC system’s filters and causing it to run less efficiently, these fibers trap other contaminants, including bacteria, pollen, and mold. Because so many people are coming in going in a hospital or nursing home, they are constantly tracking in contaminants and germs from outside. When your air ducts aren’t clean, these contaminants all build up.
Why Air Duct Cleaning is so Important for Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Medical Facilities
When bacteria, allergens, and dust build up inside of an HVAC system’s air ducts, they don’t just stay there. Whenever the heat or air conditioning circulates around the building, it carries those contaminants with it. Because the system goes through the entire building, it can circulate germs and dust everywhere, from the waiting room, to patient rooms, to operating rooms. This is particularly problematic for patients who may already be compromised by depressed immune systems. Germs or allergens coming through the air ducts may aggravate their symptoms or even induce illness. For everyone in your building, including employees, dirty air ducts can increase the risk of sinus problems and respiratory infections. For this reason, high air quality is especially important for hospitals and nursing homes, where health is paramount.
