Imagine, you’re sitting in a shopping mall food court, eating your lunch, when you look up and above your head is a ceiling caked with a layer of black dirt and dust. Not very appetizing, is it? It’s also not good for your health as that dirty ceiling could indicate air quality issues in that building.
Ceiling Cleaning Services Improve Air Quality
These are the very reasons why we were called in to provide ceiling cleaning services in a shopping mall food court. The dirt coming from the diffusers was an on-going challenge to the property manager that was responsible for commercial cleaning services for the large building.
Investigations have shown that “smudging,” as we call the deposition of dirt particles on the air outlet and surrounding surfaces, is more likely to be generated from room activity that releases dirt into the room air rather than from dirty supply air. This dirt suspended in room air, called an “atmospheric aerosol,” can then be entrained (drawn) into the discharge of the diffuser. (Hart & Cooley’s Tech Talk August 2006)
Dirt particles can be composed of both natural and man-made materials such as dust, smoke, greasy fumes, lint and pollen. Areas with heavy foot traffic will stir up these fine particles and keep them in suspension contributing to the smudging appearing on the ceiling.
Finding Quality Cleaning Cleaning Services
If you are challenged with dirty ceilings in your building, your first step will be finding the root cause of the ceiling smudging and how to address it. Enlist the help of an HVAC expert to examine your system as well as your diffusers.
Ceiling cleaning services should be part of a comprehensive commercial cleaning services program. For a qualified ceiling cleaning company, look for a commercial cleaning services company that has the knowledge and experience to do this specialized work. Maintaining a clean ceiling will give your business a clean, professional look while ensuring your staff and customers feel good about being there.
