Our Air Duct Cleaning Services

Fresh, clean air is essential in any work environment to maintain good working conditions. Pollution in the workplace can be detrimental to an employee’s health, as well as being harmful to the environment. Installing an air duct ensures that employees are coming into a healthy workplace every day.

Inevitably, over time, your ductwork will need to be inspected. Our priority is keeping your ductwork in proper working order. That’s why we offer air duct cleaning services to ensure your ductwork lasts for years to come. The air duct cleaning process involves using specialist equipment to safely remove dust and debris build up. Sanitizers and disinfectants are then used to tackle contamination and control odours.

You should schedule your duct cleaning based on our above recommendations, or whenever you start to notice a build up of dirt.


Under current standards clients’ air conditioning should be maintained to the new British Standards, failure to do so would leave them open to litigation from anyone claiming their respiratory problems were made worse by the air conditioning.

By inspecting and taking action to the relevant British Standards you will prevent problems caused by the air conditioning.
