The health, safety and product quality risks of dirty air systems are widely known. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is now being more closely monitored than in the past due to the link between dirty air systems and the health and safety of employees. The presence of mold, bacteria and dust mites, as well as common nuisance dust within the HVAC system can aggravate allergies, asthma and other employee respiratory problems.
Fire safety officials recommend periodic inspection and cleaning of air systems and duct work to remove oils, fly ash, monomer dust, lint or other flammable material. With a minor ignition source these contaminants can create a disastrous duct fire.
At Carolina Filters, we take pride in being able to assist building owners and managers identify indoor HVAC System cleaning problems and help them arrive at an acceptable solution without interruption of production or inconvenience to operations or personnel.

HVAC Duct Cleaning
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and many other organizations recommend that HVAC ductwork be inspected periodically and cleaned as required. Carolina Filters, Inc has been in the duct cleaning business for over 20 years and has the experience and equipment to accomplish all kinds of duct cleaning. We have the capability to clean the entire duct system to include: all types of ductwork, turning vanes, VAV boxes, reheat coils and all of the vents, registers and diffusers.
Particulate build up in HVAC duct systems can come from a variety of sources. Improper filtration, bypass air flow, poor or non existent maintenance practices, improper installation and general accumulation from dirt, dust and debris can all add to the build up process. Periodic cleaning of the duct systems can prevent this build up and remove possible sources of bacteria or mold growth. System cleaning can also remove contaminates transported through the duct system from other sources both inside and outside the building. Choosing Carolina Filters as your duct cleaning company will result in the following benefits:
- Minimized health risks
- Reduced legal liabilities
- Increased equipment efficiency
- Optimized temperature control
- Reduced duct fire hazards
- Compliance with federal, state and local regulatory agencies
HVAC Exhaust Duct Cleaning
Keeping the exhaust duct system clean in any facility is an important part of the Indoor Air Quality process. Exhaust systems are primarily utilized to remove contaminants and/or odors in process production or living areas as well as to maintaining pressure differentials in certain applications such as clean rooms or isolation rooms.
If the exhaust system is not functioning properly due to particulate build up on the exhaust vents, in the duct system or on the exhaust fan, then the air flow will be reduced. This can reduce the amount of contaminant and/or odor removal capacity of the exhaust system or cause the desired pressure differential to be affected. These effects can lead to decreased production or possible fire or health hazards, depending on the application. Carolina Filters' HVAC exhaust duct system cleaning procedures will ensure that your exhaust system is clean and functioning properly and will provide your company with the following benefits:
- Improved productivity due to increased contaminant removal
- Increased profitability due to increased productivity
- Improved cleanliness of workplace
- Reduced fire hazards
- Compliance with pressure differential requirements
- Desired odor removal
- Maintenance of proper air balance with the HVAC system
Air Handling Unit and Coil Cleaning
Proper cleaning of air handling units is an important part of HVAC restoration and Indoor Air Quality. A clean air handling unit will increase unit efficiency, prolong unit life and prevent contamination from entering the indoor air. Carolina Filters' experienced personnel use proven cleaning techniques and chemicals developed for each specific cleaning requirement.
When cleaning an air handling unit, more than just the coils should be addressed. All of the internal components such as the fan and fan housing, fresh air intakes, dampers, supply and return sections, interior insulation, filters and filter housing and door gaskets and seals should be inspected and cleaned or repaired as required. Carolina Filters can provide these services and produce the following benefits for your company.
- Remove bio film from coils to eliminate health risks to employees
- Reduce contamination entering occupied spaces through duct systems
- Increase HVAC system efficiency
- Increased ability to heat and cool occupied spaces
- Increase air flow
- Prolong HVAC unit life
Drain Pan Cleaning and Repair
Condensate drain pans and drain lines are components of HVAC systems that are often neglected. It is important to inspect and clean the pans frequently to ensure that standing water does not accumulate and cause overflow or mold & bacteria to grow. These conditions can also affect the integrity of the pan and eventually cause damage which can be very costly to repair. Carolina Filters can ensure these components are clean and in proper working condition. In most cases repairs to drain pan damage can be made without having to remove the coils or the entire air handling unit.
Carolina Filters' experienced staff of technicians and proven techniques for drain pan cleaning and repair can benefit your company in the following ways.
- Reduce possible microbial growth
- Reduce possible water damage due to overflow
- Eliminate need to remove entire AHU to repair drain pan
