Air Hygiene Services

Air hygiene refers to the cleanliness of the ventilation system in a home or business. It is important because if the air ducts and other components of the ventilation system are full of dirt, dust, pollen, mold spores, chemicals from airborne pollution and other harmful materials they can circulate them continuously, essentially force feeding these dangerous compounds to unsuspecting workers or family members. Clean Air UK air hygiene services provide a fast and cost-effective way to ensure the air your workers or loved ones are breathing is clean and hygienic.

Air Hygiene and the Law

Many homeowners and businesses are surprised to learn that there are laws governing the cleanliness of the air in enclosed spaces. But there are. The primary piece of legislation related to air hygiene is the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations of 1992. That law states that, in places where ventilation is provided via an HVAC system, the ventilation system must be properly maintained and cleaned.

In addition, Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999 compels employers to conduct air hygiene assessments at regular intervals in order to determine air quality and to assess airborne risks within the system.

While these and other laws and regulations do not specifically mention homes it is fair to say that the air in your home should be at least as hygienic as the air where you work. Clean Air UK air hygiene services can help in both instances.

How Our Air Hygiene Services Can Help

Clean Air UK air hygiene services can assess the state of your ventilation system and determine if any risks are present. We use several diagnostic techniques to reach our determinations including:

  • A visual inspection: Our expert technicians visually inspect the various components of your ventilation system including the air filter(s), coils, dampers and attenuators, air intakes and more.
  • Measuring surface dust: We often use the preferred vacuum test or PVT to measure surface dust within the ductwork.
  • Monitoring and testing the air: We conduct measurements of air quality using a variety of instruments to determine if unacceptable levels of pollutants are present.
