Is Air Duct Cleaning of your HVAC system effective against COVID-19 and other viruses & bacteria?

By now, everyone is aware of the coronavirus and how it is spread. It is up to us to do our part to contain the spread, such as practicing social distancing, staying home when we can, and wearing masks in public or crowded places. However, COVID 19 can be spread in less obvious ways, such as the HVAC system.

In the early days of the pandemic, researchers were baffled that some people were contacting the coronavirus. They were never in direct contact with an infected person. Upon further research, they found that these people were in the same building with the same HVAC system as the COVID positive patrons. This has led them to speculate that the virus can be spread through the ventilation system.

A prime example of this taking place was on the Princess Cruise Ship early in March. The ship's crew thought they had everyone properly quarantine. However, many passengers still got the virus even though they were in an entirely different part of the ship than the infected people. The ship's air ducts were the perfect conduit to spread the virus-like wildfire throughout the ship with recirculated air.

Air ducts can accumulate dust and allergens that can hold on to bacteria and viruses. A dirty HVAC system can create diminished air quality throughout the building and lead to many different kinds of illnesses and allergy triggers. Scheduling regular cleaning with a trained professional will eliminate the danger from dusty and dirty air ducts.

Scientists are still studying the COVID-19 virus and are not entirely sure exactly how it is spread. Keeping your air ducts clean is just one of the many ways to cut down on the chance the virus is spread in that way.

Keeping your air ducts clean will reduce allergens and poor air quality and help you breathe better, and that is something we could all benefit from right now. Contact Gator Clean to schedule air duct cleaning for your home or business.

I hired Gator Clean to clean my air ducts in my house. They did a fantastic job. I had originally called a Port Orange company called Lucky Ducts. The owner of Lucky Ducts told me that since I lived off Big Tree in South Daytona that I was closer to his competitor, Jerry Brittingham, he recommended that I call him instead. When I called Jerry Brittingham, they gave me a quote on the phone of $25 per vent. Then, when they got there, they said that they don't do vent cleaning and gave me a price of $2300 for blowing some plastic stuff through my vent system to seal possible small holes. CRAZY! Gator Clean was wonderful! They honored the quoted price and they came all the way from Eustis /Mt Dora area to South Daytona for no extra fees. Great service, great people!!! THANK YOU!!

From the moment that I spoke to them on the phone about making the appointment to get the dryer a gas dryer vent cleaned out I was very impressed I called back to ask a question and it was after hours and Danielle very nicely called me right back and gave me the answer overall I was very very impressed they did a wonderful job there was a slight complication on my part from when the house was built to where the duck was put in for the dryer she told me Danielle told me how to correct it and get it fixed and told me what time I should get it done and that what I needed to do afterwards which I found very helpful and informative I give them five stars for the job that they did and I've never had a company that was local that would get up on the roof and suck out the lint the roof part of the vent also come in the house and suck out that part of it on it was very nice to have people that you could trust. I look forward to rehiring them every time I need my dryer cleaned out they do a wonderful job and they're very clean. Thank you Danielle for a wonderful experience. Good company to work with easy going and hard workers. Mary Seabury of Mount Dora
