Equipment We Use for Duct Cleaning in Melbourne
Equipment for duct cleaning has evolved over time, with new cleaners coming in electric and gas powered models. The equipment is primarily operated by professionals who clean ducts for a living, as the technology requires proper training. The models used for duct cleaning include portable models such as electric three-piece units and gas-powered units.
Safety is the number one goal when performing duct cleaning jobs involving bacteria or different types of debris and chemicals. Kevlar or rubber gloves, respirators, chemical resistant eye protection and full-length body suits with matching foot covers are just some of the protective items that are used to ensure safety. This protective clothing is designed to protect workers from any foreign substances that may be harmful.
For residential homes and small commercial projects, a unit with low power is all that’s required to get the job done. Manufacturers have developed lightweight, low powered electrical units that can be separated into three pieces, allowing for manoeuvrability and ease of access for hard to reach areas. As they’re powered by electricity, these units cut down on dangerous fumes.
Truck and trailer mounted models are ideal for heavy-duty industrial jobs that don’t require the equipment to be moved into the structure. These units are also electrically powered. They’re very mobile and can be mounted to any truck or trailer assembly.
If the project requires better accessibility than the truck version allows, a gas powered model is available. This model provides sufficient power like the truck mounted model, however it gives the operator a bit more freedom to move around. The unit can be moved via its two wheels and built in handles, allowing it to be placed virtually anywhere.
The right brushes are also necessary for certain duct cleaning projects. These brushes are specifically designed to clean areas that otherwise would not be accessible, allowing the operator to remove debris remotely. As technology develops further over time, duct cleaning is able to be performed more efficiently.
Thorough duct cleaning using professional equipment should be done on an annual basis so the affected areas stay clean and the problem doesn’t resurface.
