The Importance of Duct Cleaning in Dubai
With Dubai being surrounded by desert, sand storms are a regular occurrence. With the amount of sand and dust being carried in the air this wreaks havoc on your externally mounted AC condensers and coils. Once this dust has collected in your AC Units this can then find its way into your ducts and then once your AC is switched on, blown around your home, potentially causing breathing problems such as acute asthma.
At Pro Clean AC we use industry leading machines like the Rotobrush, which contains two large HEPA filters. This assists us in our duct cleaning service by agitating the dust and dirt whilst vacuuming all within the same motion. The machine’s power and portability makes it easy for us to use in both residential and commercial premises.
Anything from heavy duty to household duct cleaning, it works perfectly even for flexible ducts in your duct work as this is how the machine was originally designed for and has evolved ever since.
Twinned with our use of DM Approved Envirocon HVAC Sanitizer, we remove all the dust and debris then sanitize your ducts to provide a complete cleaning service, setting us apart from other AC cleaning companies in Dubai.
“It is advisable to have the air conditioning ducts cleaned annually, especially if one or more people in a family suffer from allergies, or if there are children at home. Winter is a particularly good time because the air conditioning systems are not in use all the time. To be honest, many families would be surprised to see the amount of dirt and mould that would be eliminated during a cleaning session,” said Dr Imad Ali, paediatrician at Amrita Medical Centre.
The fine dust that collects in uncleaned ducts can contain as many as 1,000 dust mites, and up to 250,000 allergenic dust mite faecal pellets, and these trigger nasal and respiratory symptoms in people with pre-existing allergies. In addition, mould, which is also known to exacerbate allergies through released spores, can also build up in these pipelines.
Dubai’s Rashid Hospital, which treats about 1,500 asthmatic patients each year, has previously issued a recommendation to regularly clean air conditioning ducts in order to avoid the accumulation of dust and fungal allergens.
While general maintenance is provided for most apartments and villas in the capital by landlords and property management companies, the cleaning of AC ducts is not included in most maintenance contracts. Residents therefore have to request the service, and often pay for it themselves.
