Duct Sanitation – Universal Duct Cleaning

Floods, broken sewage lines, vermin infestations, and other natural disasters can cause your duct work to become contaminated. In such a way that may require duct sanitation in addition to cleaning. Universal Duct Cleaning offers these expert sanitation services in a way that is both effective for decontamination. This will be safe for you and your family.

What Is Duct Sanitation?

Sanitation involves applying an antimicrobial chemical to kill bacteria and/or mold. This will minimize the chance of re-contamination. Unlike spraying your kitchen counter or cleaning your bathroom sink. Duct sanitation must be done with care and only when necessary to kill excessive microbial growth. Inappropriate application of chemicals inside your air supply system can be harmful to your family. Only a reputable and experienced duct sanitation company should attempt this. At Universal Duct Cleaning, our technicians take the utmost care to sanitize only in safe and effective ways. Some of these include:

  • Recommending sanitation only when mechanical cleaning is insufficient to prevent bacteria or mold from becoming a health hazard.
  • Using only EPA-approved chemicals
  • We use such chemicals only as prescribed
  • Sanitizing only metal ducts and other non-porous parts of your HVAC system
  • Maintaining proper ventilation
  • Advising the homeowner about the specific pest the sanitation is designed to protect against
  • We advise the homeowner about any protective actions they need to take, such as leaving the house during the chemical application.

Certain chemicals have been developed and approved by the EPA specifically for duct cleaning. But these are generally only recommended for sheet metal ducts. If you have fiberglass or flex ducts, it is often safer for your heath to replace, rather than sanitize the ducts. For sheet metal ducts, however, sanitation is both safe and effective when done properly.

If you’ve experienced a natural disaster or infestation that’s introduced harmful bacteria or mold growth into your airways, don’t wait. Such microbes can cause serious health problems for you and your family. Call us today for the Tidewater area’s best duct sanitation services at
