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.

My first expierence with Gator was 13:years ago when I had a elderly neighbor who had their carpet cleaned by another company. Within a week it didn't appear as if anything had been cleaned. They called Gator Clean and after hearing their complaint regarding the other company and the result cleaned the carpet again with no charge. It came out looking like brand new so we have used Gator Clean ever since. for our carpets, furniture, and area rugs. Danielle and her husband were very professional and informative regarding how to care for our carpets & such

They came and did a super job cleaning out my dryer vent. It was 95% clogged. They showed me pictures, did the service and cleaned up after themselves. Great job and really nice people.
