Probiotic Coil Cleaning

Probiotic Coil Cleaning

Enviro Indoor Environmental Services is thrilled to use innovative probiotic technology to clean  HVAC coils at a microscopic level. This allows for increased system efficiency, extended coil service life, improved indoor air quality, and many other benefits. Keep reading to learn more.

How It Works

Here’s what you can expect from our tried and true, four-step process.

  1. First, we apply an eco-friendly probiotic agent that makes its way deep into the coils, allowing biofilms to release from the fin surface.
  2. Next, we sanitize with super heated water that penetrates within the coils and removes stubborn biofilms while keeping the delicate coil matrix intact. 
  3. Then, we repeat steps 1 and 2 on both coil faces until steam passes through across the entire coil face.
  4. Lately, we retreat the coils with a special probiotic post-treatment solution to ensure residual biofilm blocking. 


Traditional Coil Cleaning vs. Probiotic Coil Cleaning

Traditional coil cleaning involves a pressure washer and steam cleaners. While it can be effective, it lacks the ability to treat entrenched biofilms, which are made of harmful microbes, like pathogens. 


That’s where probiotic coil cleaning comes in. When paired with our coil sanitation process, revolutionary probiotic technology breaks down and removes biofilm while improving thermal conductivity and air flow.

Benefits of Enviro Coil Restoration

Here are several of the many reasons probiotic coil cleaning should be on your radar.

Lowers Electricity Bills

Our probiotic coil cleaning process removes the oxidation and dirt from the coils. Once the coils and fins are thoroughly cleaned, you’ll find that your HVAC system works optimally while reducing its overall power consumption.

Saves Money on HVAC Repairs

There’s no denying that a broken HVAC system can be expensive to repair. With coil cleaning, you can reduce the risk of malfunctions and keep more of your hard earned money in your pockets.

Increases HVAC System Lifespan

Coil cleaning in combination with probiotic technology is a great way to increase the longevity of your HVAC system. It can allow you to continue using your residential or commercial system for many years to come.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air quality should be a top priority. After all, it’s what your family, guests, employees, and/or customers breathe in day in and day out. Coil cleaning can remove harmful pollutants from the air and create a healthier environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is HVAC coil cleaning?

Your HVAC system contains coils that absorb the heat from the air in your space and expel the heat outside of your home or building. Since coils can’t effectively transfer heat when they’re covered with dirt and debris, coil cleaning is essential. It can help stop a multitude of issues, like higher energy consumption, an overheated system, and a compression failure. 


How often do I need coil cleaning?

The ideal frequency for coil cleaning depends on a number of factors. These include the age and condition of your HVAC system as older equipment can accumulate dirt faster as well as how many hours per day your unit runs. Your location and whether or not you’re close to the street or in a construction zone is also important to consider. 


What are biofilms?

Biofilms are slimy, glue-like layers of microorganisms that adhere to wet surfaces. They can form on living and non-living surfaces, like your HVAC system. When they make their way into your HVAC system, they can reduce heat transfer and lead to corrosion, which can warrant the need for issues and repairs. 


What are probiotics?

Probiotics are a mixture of live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you. Research shows that they can help with digestive issues and immune system health while keeping your home and body clean.

How long does the process take?

Our HVAC coil cleaning service is usually completed in only 4 to 8 hours, depending on the size of your Air Handling Unit (AHU).
