We completed this commercial air duct cleaning project at a Gym in Northern VA at their roughly 20,000-square-foot fitness center.
This local fitness center was concerned with dust and pollutant build-up on their registers. Not only were they an eye soar, but it looked like an unclean space to work out because of poor indoor air quality. They were in search of a professional air duct cleaning company and chose Duct Cleaning based on our reviews and reputation for cleaning other gyms and recreation centers in Northern Virginia. The gym also wanted a company that could clean the air ducts after-hours cleaning to work around their employee’s and customers’ schedules.
What Made This Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Project Unique?
This gym and higher ceilings than a typical commercial space, which needed to be accessed for a thorough cleaning. We also had to section of the gym space to clean the ductwork in phases.
Each night as we began cleaning, we had to set up our workspace and begin the process again. Also, after cleaning the ductwork, we applied an anti-microbial application throughout the ductwork to ensure a clean environment.
How Long Did This Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Project Take?
We completed this cleaning over three nights starting on a Monday because the beginning of the week is typically slower with foot traffic at this gym. Each night we cleaned a phase and made sure everything was ready for business to begin when everyone arrived in the morning. With commercial ductwork, it’s important to ensure cleaning of the return ductwork, especially for fitness centers because the build-up of dust and particulate can cause poor indoor air quality in the entire facility.

Benefits of Commercial Air Duct Cleaning

We recommend having a commercial air duct cleaning completed every 5-7 years for normal cases. However, for commercial dryer vent cleaning, we recommend every 6-18 months and even more frequently for high usages such as gyms, hotels, salons, and commercial spaces with daily dryer use. Air duct cleaning can also be more frequent if the indoor air quality is jeopardized by dust build-up, unpleasant smells, and pollutants in the air.
Circulating dust, debris, and pollen can lead to an unclean workout environment for guests and employees. Pollutants in the air can lead to illness, congestion, and poor indoor air quality.
Applying Anti-Microbial to Commercial Duct Work
After the commercial air duct cleaning, we can apply anti-microbial application Benefect Decon 30 which is an EPA-registered cleaning agent that kills pollutants on contact. We use this application specifically because it is herb based from the herb Thyme and is a “green cleaning agent”. The benefits for gyms are that after the initial source removal duct cleaning, the ductwork is fogged with this application and ensures that pollutants are killed once the cleaning agent reaches the supply vents.
