This commercial air duct cleaning was completed at a veterinary hospital in Northern VA at their roughly 10,000-square-foot clinic.
This local veterinary clinic had concerns with air quality and airflow because of pet hair and dander build-up in their air ductwork causing poor circulation. They were searching for a professional air duct cleaning company and chose Atlantic Duct Cleaning based on our reviews and reputation for cleaning other veterinary hospitals and dog daycare centers in Northern Virginia. The veterinary clinic also liked that we provided after-hours cleaning to work around their employee’s and customers’ schedules.
What made this Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Project Unique?
The veterinary hospital also had a boarding space for animals to stay. We had to coordinate moving animals into different cages so we could access duct work and not disrupt the kennel space. We also had to put everything back as we found it each night so the employees could work during the day. Each night as we began cleaning, we had to set up our workspace and begin the process again. Also, after cleaning the ductwork, we applied an anti-microbial application throughout the ductwork.
How Long did this Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Project Take?
We completed this cleaning over three nights over a long weekend which gave us extra time to make sure the ductwork was clean and ready for business to begin when everyone arrived back. For commercial ductwork, it’s important to ensure cleaning of the return ductwork, especially for veterinary hospitals because a build-up of animal fur and dust can damage the system and also cause poor indoor air quality.

Benefits of Commercial Air Duct Cleaning
The result of this commercial air duct cleaning was:
- Improved indoor air quality
- A safe work environment for team members
- Increased energy savings from better air flow
- Source removal duct cleaning – everything in the ductwork has been removed
- Less dust and dander around the office and guest common areas
We recommend having a commercial air duct cleaning completed every 5-7 years for normal cases. However, for commercial dryer vent cleaning, we recommend every 6-18 months and even more frequently for high usages such as veterinary hospitals, hotels, salons, and commercial spaces with daily dryer use. Air duct cleaning can also be more frequent if the indoor air quality is jeopardized by pet dander, renovations, allergies, or large amounts of dust accumulation.
Circulating dust, debris, pet dander, and pollen can lead to an unclean work environment for guests and employees. Pollutants in the air can lead to illness, congestion, and poor indoor air quality. In fact, indoor air can be up to 70 percent more polluted than outdoor air—which is why scheduling routine commercial air duct cleaning for your commercial property is important!
Applying Anti-Microbial in Commercial Duct Work
Once the commercial air duct cleaning is complete, we can apply the anti-microbial application Benefect Decon 30 an EPA-registered cleaning agent that kills pollutants on contact. We use this application because it is herb based from the herb Thyme and is a “green cleaning agent”. The benefits for commercial buildings are that after the initial source removal duct cleaning, the ductwork is fogged with this application and ensures that pollutants are killed once the cleaning agent reaches the supply vents.
