Indoor Air Quality Services

Through Metro Services' indoor air quality services, we will ensure your HVAC system is operating at peak, and harmful particles are filtered out of the air you're breathing.HVAC Performance & Filtration

Indoor air quality is of the utmost importance. You want the air you breathe to be clean and free of dust, dirt, mold, and germs. All the air that circulates through your space is being heated or cooled as well as filtered by your HVAC system. This is why it’s important to take steps to ensure the HVAC system within your building, home office, or plant is operating at peak and the air is being properly filtered.

While filtration is imperative, and changing your air filters regularly is critical to this process, there’s a lot more to ensuring safety as indoor air quality is concerned. Air filters can only capture particles down to a certain size. So what about the harmful elements that are small enough to pass through the filter undeterred? That’s where our team at Metro Services comes in.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

It’s our job to clean the air as it passes through the ductwork of your building. Your HVAC system is home to an indoor evaporator coil that aids in its function– but that coil also creates a damp, dark environment perfect for the formation and growth of mold, algae, and bio film. Needless to say, these are elements that dramatically lower the quality of the air in your space, and things you don’t want to be breathing in.

Our team can mitigate this issue by installing UV lights that shine onto the coil, cleaning it while killing these microscopic organisms by breaking down the molecular structure of their DNA. These UV lights actually serve dual purposes cleaning both the surfaces and the air as it passes through the beam of light. The lights also serve to keep the coil clean from biofilm, which in turn keeps the HVAC system operating more efficiently and lowering your electric costs.

The CDC on COVID-19 and Indoor Air Quality

  • Before resuming business operations, check the building to ensure it’s ready for safe occupancy.
  • Check for hazards such as mold growth, pests or rodents, and issues with dampness or stagnant water systems.
  • Ensure ventilation systems in your facility operate properly, including building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
  • Increase the circulation of outdoor air as much as possible by opening windows and doors and using fans.
  • Consider taking steps to improve ventilation in the building, in consultation with an HVAC professional (such as Metro Services), based on local environmental conditions like temperature and humidity, and ongoing community transmission in your area.
  • Increase air filtration as much as possible without significantly diminishing design airflow.
  • Inspect filters to ensure appropriate fit, and check for ways to minimize filter bypass.
  • Consider the use of portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) fan/filtration systems to help enhance air cleaning, particularly in higher-risk areas.
