Benefits Of Professional Air Duct Cleaning For Restaurants

Air duct cleanings are commonly conducted in commercial and residential properties, but that does not mean they cannot be done in restaurants as well. Restaurants play a vital role in their respective communities and would be best served if they had their air ducts cleaned at least once a year. This blog will dive into the main benefits restaurants can experience after their air ducts have been cleaned. 

Safer Food Prep

When air duct systems are not cleaned, mold, dust, and other particles can build up quickly. The mold, dust and other particles that linger around can make its way onto food. Once these particles make their way onto food inside the restaurant, bacteria can form. The last thing any restaurant customer wants is to eat food with bacteria involved and the last thing any restaurant wants is to be liable for unsafe food prep. 

Improved Air Quality 

Air quality is as important as it has ever been. When air ducts are clean, they provide a cleaner, more enhanced level of air quality. Subpar air quality can lead to stuffy noses and unpleasant smells around your restaurant. Overall, better air quality means a healthier environment for staff, customers and everyone else. 

Helps Restaurants Avoid Costly Repairs 

Letting an air duct system get too dirty can be costly. Before you know it, a dirty air duct system can wreak havoc and damage the system altogether. 

One Less Thing Restaurant Has To Worry About 

Air ducts can technically be cleaned without hiring professionals, but restaurant staffs usually have their hands full with other tasks. Restaurants should not burden themselves even more with something that can be time-consuming and done by other professionals.

Preventing Mold Growth

Finding mold in your home is never pleasant. Between its unsightly appearance, and the potential health hazards it can cause for you and your family, the word itself is probably enough to make you cringe. And sadly, mold has the ability to grow almost anywhere- on the carpet, floor, ceiling, paper, food, inside drywall, etc. Once it has made itself comfortable, it won’t be long before it starts multiplying. That is one of the reasons mold can be so intimidating- it spreads rapidly, and can be tricky to get rid of. The best thing we can do is to try to prevent the growth of mold altogether. The following tips can help to keep you and your home safe from mold.

  1. Keep It Dry:

    It may seem obvious, but this is one of the most crucial factors in keeping your home mold-free. When spills or leaks occur, try to tackle them right away, or at very least within 24-48 hours. After every shower, dry the floors and walls, as this is an optimal time for mold to start growing.  If there’s been any burst pipes or flooding in your home, you may even need to completely remove water-damaged carpets bedding and furniture if they cannot be dried. Additionally, don’t leave wet clothes in the washing machine for an extended period of time. Mold can spread quickly, so try to remove them promptly and when possible, hang outside to dry.  Mold thrives in damp areas, so try to eliminate any potential areas for it could root and spread.

  2. Ventilation:

    Without proper ventilation, some of our everyday domestic activities could be promoting mold growth in your home. Cooking dinner, taking a shower, or doing a load of laundry could be sending an unwanted invitation to mold. You can offset this by using AC units and dehumidifiers in your home to reduce moisture. Opening a window or running an exhaust fan could also work just as well.

  3. Mold-resistant products:

    If you’re starting fresh by building a brand new home, or even renovating an old one, consider using mold-resistant products. Mold-resistant drywall is a good alternative to traditional drywall, as it is paperless. Instead, it is covered in fiberglass, making the service water resistant. This would be highly beneficial to use in rooms that typically acquire the most moisture such as your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and basement.
