Top 6 HVAC Hygiene Technologies Clean-Air uses to deliver 1st Class Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality management within Commercial Buildings requires a combination of science and technology to provide safe, breathable air, and meet IAQ standards.

These expert technologies include, High Energy Germicidal UVC, Aeroseal Duct Sealing, Chemistry: Specifically formulated Multi-Enzyme Chemicals and Anti-Bacterial Coatings, Robotic Machinery: for Inspections and Remediation, Advanced Microbial Testing: for Pre and Post Verification Measures, and Air Sampling Instruments: for real-time IAQ data collection. Here's a brief run-down of these  top 6 Clean-Air capabilities.


1. Robotic Machinery

Clean-Air owns and operates the latest Robotics and equipment in HVAC hygiene technology.

Inspections disinfection and Remediation is carried out by our robots. Our Multibot air duct cleaning robot features a FullHD inspection camera,  a 360º perimetral nebulisation nozzle, Silicon whips and cleaning brushes.

Our Lifa ROVER Robotic Inspection Camera with Wi-Fi Video Recording can navigate the most narrow of ducting.

Lifa Air HepaClean 3500 negative pressure unit (NPU) is designed for filtering/cleaning of airborne pollutants, such as building construction dust, pulverised asbestos, quartz, mill and wood dust etc. that forms in new and renovation of buildings.

As well as being equipped with the latest Aeroseal Duct Sealing technology


2. High Energy Germicidal UVC

We install global leading high-output ultraviolet germicidal solutions for improved indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Installed in new or existing HVAC systems, the UVC Emitter® germicidal lamps keep HVAC coils and drain pans clean, reducing energy consumption and costly cleaning programs. Using the proven power of germicidal UVC energy as an effective inactivation method for microorganisms, UVC Emitters improve HVAC environmental hygiene, making a vital contribution to indoor air quality.


3. Chemistry

Data collected from IAQ Testing allows us to prescribe a specific course of treatment, determine the correct remediation method and select the exact types of specifically formulated chemicals, multi-enzymatic cleaners or Anti-Bacterial coatings to use . Without following a stringent process like this there is no guarantee that the chemicals or treatments being used would be effective in solving an IAQ issue.


4. Aeroseal Duct Sealing for HVAC

Leaking AC ducting can cause a variety of Indoor Air Quality issues from low energy efficiency to air contamination between rooms. Aeroseal a genius invention which provides a cost effective sealing solution for leaking ductwork and avoids disruptive task of reinstalling an entirely new ductwork system throughout a building, because Aeroseal seals the duct work from the inside. It also has the benefit of causing minimal disruption to commerce and with minimal downtime for business operations, it's been successfully used in hospital settings (see our case file here), educational buildings (see our case file here), residential and commercial applications. 


5. Air Sampling Instruments

Clean-Air owns advanced air sampling equipment for collecting real-time IAQ data within the breathing zone. Parameters include, CO, CO2, O2, O3, VOCs (at a Range of 10 to 20,000 ppb), Temperature, Humidity, Airflow Velocity, dew point, wet bulb, our dust monitor can measure for particles of PM1, PM2.5, respirable, PM10 and PM, as well as smoke, fumes and mists.

Where required we also have the capability to operate Ozone generators for the sanitisation of closed spaces learn more


6. Advanced Microbial and Aerosol Testing

The correct microbial testing of an HVAC system is a critical step in providing safe indoor air to an occupied space – we perform pre and post verification measures to ensure no health risk. These samples will be carried out in a strategic way and may include, swab sampling, bio-tape lifts, bioaerosol cassette captures

Only a Mycologist, a Micro-biologist that is an expert in fungi & mould, can determine which moulds are harmless and which are an issue. The safest outcome is to minimise the presence of all moulds. Domestic cleaners and mould treatments are often only bleaches which may change the appearance of mould but not destroy it, that's why understanding the chemistry is vital and the results of sampling determines the correct remediation process where we will use specifically formulated chemicals, multi-enzymatic cleaners and Anti-Bacterial coatings to ensure an effective outcome.


This combination of science and technology allows us to fulfil Indoor Air Quality standards, providing healthy indoor air to buildings Australia-wide.
