Antimicrobial Air Duct Encapsulation in Richmond, VA

Keep Your Air Clean and Fiberglass Free

Air duct encapsulation is the process of coating the inside of your duct work with an antimicrobial sealant. It locks down fibers, mold and other pollutants from becoming airborne and stops them from entering the air in your building.

After the duct cleaning, the encapsulant is applied using an airless sprayer. It is “designed to bridge, and reinforce duct liner or duct board insulation materials, and to seal unlined ductwork prior to component removal, preventing fiberglass and inanimate particulate from becoming airborne.”

The encapsulant locks down any loose fibers from the duct liner and provides an HVAC coating that also has an antimicrobial coating that inhibits future microbial growth.

Kohmar uses different types of encapsulant, depending on the application, as well as customers individual needs and concerns. You’ll be given multiple options for HVAC Coating products. Ask about our Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP’s) free products!

Protecting yourself and other occupants from particulates is key to creating a healthy Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Don’t leave your health at risk or ruin your heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Kohmar inspects your air ducts, determines if you need encapsulation and gets the job done.

Start with a free consultation to determine whether or not your ducts are a good candidate for encapsulation.

Finding Out if Your Richmond Building Has Fiberglass Ducts

Many commercial buildings and some residential buildings use fiberglass duct boards or liners. They’re cheaper and easier to assemble than steel ductwork, and are usually built offsite, making them a popular choice for large buildings. Duct liner is designed for insulating purposes as well as a sound dampening.

In the construction phase, lined fiberglass sheets are used to form round or square ductwork. To prevent fiberglass from filtering into the air, the interior is sealed with a very thin layer of protection. However, over time, this sealant can erode and give fiberglass particles a chance to escape, this can especially happen after the duct liner is cleaned!

Antimicrobial encapsulation can prevent potential health issues caused by polluted indoor air. The coating helps extend the lifespan of your ductwork and keeps your HVAC system particulate-free.

When your fiberglass starts to fray, call Kohmar and encapsulate those ducts to keep your indoor air fresh and healthy!
