Air Circulation and COVID

As the spread of COVID-19 continues, more and more facts are being discovered about its spread. One thing that is certain: the most effective way it spreads is through airborne methods like coughing and sneezing. These actions cause the virus to become aerosolized and help it travel. 

As the research develops, it is becoming clear that air circulation, specifically the process of continuously introducing new air from outside, is one of the best ways to reduce the spread. With this knowledge, it is important to note that simpler air circulation methods, like regular fans or systems re-circulate air are not recommended as they have a higher likelihood of spreading the virus. 

COVID and Ventilation Systems

Since the virus travels best through air, this has concerned many people, businesses, and policy makers about the possibility of it traveling through their HVAC systems and air conditioning. As mentioned above, as long as a HVAC system incorporates air from outside this reduces the chance of spread. The more outdoor air that is used, the better. 

COVID-19 Ventilation Guidelines

The World Health Organization has put out guidelines to help businesses navigate the best options for air circulation and ventilation in the workspace to guarantee employee safety. Since some workplaces cannot avoid indoor gatherings during COVID because of the type of work cannot be done remotely, these guidelines are helpful to remain compliant and safe. 

Aside from introducing more outdoor air into the workspace, the WHO also recommends having your HVAC system maintained, cleaned, and inspected regularly. By doing so, it is guaranteeing that airflow is not being hindered by any debris or dirt and that the air circulation is at the desired level to reduce spread. 

Air Duct Cleaning and Antimicrobial Treatments

As air conditioning circulates, it picks up air from throughout the building. The air it picks up from spaces within the building contain bacteria and dirt. As the air travels through the ducts, the bacteria and dirt goes with it. Overtime, debris and bacteria can build up in air vents. Too much of this build up can hinder optimal air-flow and spread bacteria. This is a potential problem that can limit the air conditioning’s ability to maximize air-flow in an era of COVID-19. 

To guarantee your air conditioning is functioning at the best level, contact an air duct cleaning company and pursue your options. An air duct cleaning service is ideal to remove dirt and debris, as air ducts are vacuumed out with commercial grade equipment. Antimicrobial treatments are different, and best used in conjunction with an air duct cleaning. For these, an optimized solution of cleaning products is sprayed along the inside of the air ducts to kill bacteria. Together they clean and sanitize air ducts to ensure optimal air flow.
