Constant updating of air in the room creates a comfortable environment for people who are in it, and also necessary in order to maintain the structure of houses in good condition.When the house is heated by an open fire, this problem was solved by itself - the fresh air is drawn in through natural openings in the building.Today, in times of the central heating, protivoskvoznyachnogo equipment and high-quality thermal insulation problem entering the premises fresh air ventilation system should solve.


Types of ventilation systems and methods for cleaning ↑

ventilation system - not particularly conspicuous, but nevertheless a necessary element of any building ashousing and manufacturing or storage.Without going into technical details, the ventilation can be divided into two types: natural and forced.

Appearance ventilation
Maintaining the ventilation system in operation will create a favorable climate in the room

both natural and forced ventilation systems need periodic cleaning.Here also there are two approaches: the first, which is more like the Russian people - cleaning ventilation as pollution;the second, still not widely used because of the peculiarities of the national character - periodic preventive cleaning of ventilation, regardless of its degree of contamination.The second approach is undoubtedly more advantageous in terms of the efficiency of the ventilation system and in terms of taking care of the health of people who constantly use the room.

At first glance it may seem that the ventilation system is working normally, but for a long time, it accumulates debris, dust, various microorganisms, which are beginning to circulate in the room with the air flow, thereby causing harm to humans.Moreover, untreated timely ventilation systems with waste accumulated in them are considered a potential source of fire.

cleaning of ventilation systems can now be done in two ways: mechanical and chemical.The advantage of a mechanical method is its relative safety for people working in the room, and for the system itself.However, the mechanical means are not always able to cope with serious pollution, for example, in the case of a large load on the ventilation system or disregard the norms of her cleansing.Then it is necessary to think about the dry cleaning of air ducts, most likely, it will give the expected result.

versed in hardware - what for?↑

to cleaning ventilation systems to be effective, should be used specifically designed for this purpose equipment, which can be both professional and public use.

Equipment for cleaning
Equipment for cleaning of ventilation is not only from the usual brushes, but also complex filtering devices

Normally cleaning equipment Ventilation includes a set of brushes for cleaning of ventilation systems, mobile and filters for filtering them.A professional approach to the process of purification also provides a preliminary examination of the system to identify the level of contamination and identify problem areas by using special devices.In this case, the equipment for cleaning of ventilation can be extended so special device such as a video camera mounted on the moving platform of a small size, which transmits the signal directly from the vent of the system.

Videoinspektor ventilation
With such professional video inspection devices can be carried out to determine the degree of ventilation and pollution

Features cleaning ventilation fat ↑

In some cases, natural ventilation system can not handle the increased load, and it is necessary to establish a more powerful mechanical ventilation.This is especially true for rooms that are used for food processing or cooking: production halls or kitchens in houses and apartments.Installed here ventilation should remove excess amount of steam and smells of cooking food, but in the process it quickly becomes soiled with fat, which, mixed with the dust turns into unpleasant substance that is difficult to remove.

In cases of minor contamination from the cleaning of ventilation fat can be done with detergent and warm water, in more advanced cases, you can use radical methods like soaking parts in the drawing tool to clean the drain pipes.However, it concerns the external parts, to which access is not necessary to disassemble the ventilation system.In more complex cases, cleaning the ventilation of the fat should be carried out by professionals with all the rules and requirements.

Ventilation in the kitchen
To extractor hood shining outside, enough effort mistress, but to the internal elements should allow professionals.

Some embodiments provide clean dismantling of the ventilation system, but the cleaning of ventilation in the apartment in such harsh measures are not needed.With the help of the simplest devices you can try to clean the vent passage from the apartment to the main venthoda.Discovered at this site dust and debris can be removed with a vacuum cleaner.Then move your own ventilation is not recommended, as the main course of ventilation and condition - taking care of the organization.

Clean ventilation in the apartment can be carried out with the simplest devices

Important!In the main duct may be not only the dust and dirt, but also less pleasant inhabitants like mice, rats, wasps and cockroaches.Be careful and try not to disturb them.

Disinfection of ventilation - the final and obligatory stage ↑

The most common mistake lies in the fact that at this stage usually ends up cleaning ventilation.The main motive is clear and understandable - the desire to save money for the disinfection of ventilation.However, experts argue that the cleaning and disinfection of ventilation systems are required to submit a set of measures and certainly complement each other.If cleaning of the ventilation system removes dirt and deposits, it is responsible for the disinfection of microbiological safety.Dust mites, viruses are transmitted by airborne droplets, bacteria and fungi can safely withstand the mechanical and even chemical cleaning and processing only the inside surface of the duct with a disinfectant solution is guaranteed to get rid of their bad neighborhood.
