In 2000 IAQ Technologies became the first professional duct cleaning service established in Thailand. The company was started by an Australian, Mr. Carl Straub and supported by Mr, Alistair MacMillan & Mr Mark Ashton, founders of Indoor Air Quality Technologies Pty. Ltd. of Melbourne Australia. IAQ Technologies Thailand was later joined by Mr. Robert Thein Pe as a Director, Mr. Thien Pe is also Managing Director of a major hotel chain based in Thailand.
Both companies are pioneers in the introduction of sophisticated air duct cleaning systems into Australia and Southeast Asia. Today IAQ Technologies Thailand applies job specific equipment for the most thorough and cost effective ductwork cleaning available anywhere in the world today. All types of equipment are used by our teams – hands on, robots, brushes as well as compressed air – all are used in conjunction with high volume negative pressure – vacuum contaminant collection.
The best and most efficient cleaning method is human hands. Obviously it is not always possible for workers to fit inside tiny ducts so other methods must be used. The top line best method is high pressure compressed air. Hoses are fed into the ducts and guided as far as 30? meters deep. Very high pressure air is directed through specially designed (by IAQ) cleaning nozzles to scour clean the inside the ductwork. A high volume negative pressure vacuum connected at one end collects the loosened dust and dirt and pulls it out of the system.
Our custom designed high pressure compressed air system has the advantage of being able to reach close to 100% of any ductwork system we deal with. Robot and brush systems are excellent for certain areas and applications but are unable to pass through sections that can only be reached with the compressed air systems.
After every job every piece of equipment is thoroughly cleaned, inspected, repaired and even rebuilt if needed. Ensuring our customers, number one – contaminants are not carried from one job to another and second – work is not delayed due to faulty or poorly maintained equipment.
In 2005 IAQ began specialized work with offshore drilling and marine HVAC cleaning. Specially trained and qualified teams now regularly clean work and living quarters ductwork and ventilation on almost 100 rigs around the world. IAQ also cleans galley ventilation and cooking hoods onboard rigs and ships.
