VIACS  

Our Services

Assessment & Inspection
VIACS offers comprehensive inspection of a wide variety of HVAC systems and controls. We'll also assess the safety, lifespan and energy efficiency of your HVAC system to determine the current operating condition, or give a second opinion on work that has already been done.

Boiler Fire Tube Cleaning
Fire tube cleaning is important to maintain high energy efficiency. Soot, rust and other buildup can severly degrade your boiler's efficiency and decrease its usable life not to mention, cause safety hazards. VIACS professionals will ensure your firetube boiler operates at peak efficiency for its maximum lifespan.

Chiller Tube Brushing
Chillers are often the single largest consumers of energy. The undoing of any chiller is the build-up of scale, biological growth, and corrosion inside chiller tubes. When this occurs, efficiencies are eroded and the chillers life cycle can be significantly reduced. Preventive maintenance, including cleaning the chiller tubes, will yield optimum efficiency of the chillers.

Cleanroom Cleaning
Whether your cleanroom is a small soft-wall enclosure or superfab facility, it needs to be cleaned to maintain the process or product yield. VIACS will work with you and follow your established protocols for cleaning all areas of your cleanroom. If necessary, we can work with you to establish your cleaning protocols. VIACS technicians can perform all aspects of cleanroom cleaning from construction cleaning to daily maintenance. Whether your cleanroom is Class 8 or Class 3, sterile or non-sterile, VIACS can clean it and keep it clean.

Coil Cleaning
A coil fouled with dirt and grime cannot supply proper heat transfer, resulting in greater energy consumption. Equipment operating with dirty coils uses more energy than those with clean coils. Additionally, a dirty systems cooling capacity is greatly reduced. Dirty coils increase operating pressure and temperature, which breaks down the compressors lubricant and can result in equipment failure. A failed compressor means no cooling and costly repair.

Contract Management
VIACS can manage all aspects of your HVAC equipment service contract, including billing, scheduling, profitability analysis, and warranty tracking.

Containment & Control
VIACS practices stringent containment and control of infectious substances, mold and lead during removal and/or abatement. Containment systems include physical barriers, pressurization systems, isolation and sealing of ventilation ducts, dermal and respiratory protection for workers, and systematic removal, transportation and disposal of contaminated materials.

Cooling Tower Cleaning
Commercial evaporative cooling systems are particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of mineral build up because they rely on the evaporation of water. Any impurities in your water supply will have nowhere to go except the pipe walls. VIACS professionals are ready to assist you in keeping your facility operating at maximum efficiency with our meticulous cleaning services. We may also be able to help you reduce the build up on mineral deposits in the future as well.

Cryogenic Cleaning (CO2 Media Blasting)
Dry Ice (or CO2 Pellet) Blasting is one of the most effective means of removing loose surface and tightly bonded contaminants. The process itself is similar to sandblasting, but provides a non-hazardous, non-conductive, and most importantly, a non-waste generating mechanical cleaning action. The process can be gentle enough to clean delicate electrical components or aggressive enough to remove bonded coatings.

Cyclone & Hopper Cleaning
Correct air flow through a cyclone is vital for efficient operation, and materials bridging or hanging up in hoppers can be a real nuisance. Let VIACS' professionals remove material build up and keep your equipment operating at peak efficiency.

Data Center Cleaning (Underfloor)
Because of gravity, a data center's underfloor is the area most prone to dirt and dust. Allowed to accumulate, these contaminants will be swept up and carried to your equipment by the circulating air conditioning so vital to your equipment's operation. The impact of contaminated airflow includes clogged circuity, increased risk of fire, accidental fire suppressant discharge, and miscellaneous health problems. VIACS' underfloor cleaning service helps protect your equipment from these and other hazards.

Drop Ceiling Cleaning
Ceilings are a trap for carbon monoxide, oils, grease, smoke, nicotine and carbon. They provide a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. These factors along with other unsanitary pollutants bond to amino and fatty acids to create the sick building syndrome. VIACS' cleaning system breaks down and dissolves these substances, returning your ceiling surface to a like-new condition. In addition to the ceiling tiles being deodorized and sanitized, they regain their acoustic, fire rating, and light reflection values. Your working and living environment is positively enhanced.

Ductwork Cleaning
If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, ductwork may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the living and/or working space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Electrical Apparatus / Motor Cleaning
With our Cryogenic (Dry Ice) Blasting process, VIACS professionals can thoroughly and gently clean all kinds of electrical and electronic equipment. Dry Ice Blasting is nonabrasive and the materials used are nonconductive, making it the ideal choice for cleaning sensitive equipment like switchboards, circuit breakers, AC and DC motors, generators, and more.

Encapsulation & Coatings
VIACS specialises in offering environmental coating solutions through effective applications and technologies. These applications help in improving the safety of workplace, sustainability of natural resources, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy efficiency. VIACS' encapsulation & coating services improve the comfort levels and extend the structural life of treated surfaces.

Factory Dust Abatement
Dust which has accumulated on surfaces found in and around factory equipment may pose serious problems for the equipment itself, as well as factory workers. Factory dust may contain hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead, or other contaminants which may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people who are exposed to them. Machinery may lose efficiency due to dust that has settled on the surface, or built up in vents, pipes, hoses, and moving parts.

Factory Equipment Cleaning (Ovens, Printers, Sorters, etc.)
During factory construction, managers of factories or industrial facilities go to great lengths to plan the layout of factory equipment with the goal of improving production and worker productivity but often place only minor emphasis on cleaning and maintaining that equipment. The best way to avoid potential problems, including costly repairs, is to have a comprehensive cleaning and maintenance program that addresses all the cleaning needs of the entire facility.

Fan Cleaning
One of the most fundamental ways to reduce fire risk is to eliminate built-up grease, debris, and other by-products that serve as fuel sources within ventilation and exhaust systems. With routine cleaning, equipment life is extended and most importantly, efficiency is increased. VIACS will clean your fans and exhaust systems to the metal and ensure these systems are in good working order.

Filter Rack Repairs
Damaged metal filter racking systems can often be repaired, avoiding the cost and inconvenience of a complete filter rack replacement.

Filter Replacement
VIACS professionals can replace just about any type of filter, including dust collection, HVAC and equipment filters. Regular filter replacement can help extend the useful life of your HVAC units and equipment, decrease energy costs, and reduce the risk of poor health caused by poor indoor air quality.

Fire Cleanup for HVAC systems
A fire loss is very complex because of the unique behavior of smoke, which flows through plumbing cavities and HVAC systems. Hot embers of a fire will often damage the interior of the HVAC system and duct work. It is important to have an experienced restoration team on your side. Fast treatment will help reduce smoke and soot health hazards. VIACS is the most comprehensive resource for fire damage services, assessment, and recovery.

Fire Damper Inspection
Proper inspection of a fire damper system assures its reliable operation and establishes that the system complies with regulations and professional standards. In the event of a fire, the damper system will prevent rapid spread of fire through the ventilation system. When you choose VIACS we will discuss your needs, analyze your facility, and prepare a detailed custom plan for your situation. The best way to inspect the operation of a fire damper is to view it in both the open and closed position.  Depending on your needs, VIACS can supply you with a dated photograph of each damper in both the open and closed position. We do not use a "one-size-fits-all" checklist; every facility is different and we take the time to address your needs and specific circumstances.

Flex Ductwork Replacement
Flexible nonmetallic duct (or flex duct) is more cost effective than hard pipe, due to the increasing costs of metal, and can easily be ran in tight spaces. However, it is easily torn, crushed, pinched, or damaged during installation, and has a high resistance to airflow due to the rigid interior which creates turbulence in the passing air, causing your system to lose efficiency. Consequently, it must be properly installed, and promptly replaced should it become damaged.

Grease Hoods & Systems Cleaning
Approximately one-third of restaurant fires are caused by built-up grease residue in the kitchen exhaust system. It is important to ensure you get a complete, routine cleaning of your entire system. Some contractors offer a "hood cleaning" service which does not include the ductwork or rooftop fan. While such services may keep the interior of the kitchen looking sharp, they do little to secure fire safety and reduce health threats. Only a complete cleaning of the system-from the hood in the kitchen to the fan on the roof-will reduce the risk of kitchen fires and ensure compliance with fire regulations.

High Bay Cleaning (Beams, Ceilings, Walls, Equipment, etc.)
Buildings that require high bay cleaning usually have large and/or hard to clean surfaces. VIACS has the tools, the knowledge, and the trained professionals to ensure that your building is cleaned to perfection.

HVAC Unit Cleaning
One of the biggest contributors to indoor air quality is the HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). The HVAC system "conditions" the air inside the building so that it is clean, odor-free and at a temperature and humidity that the majority of the buildings occupants find comfortable. HVAC maintenance plays a significant role in keeping the HVAC system running at peak efficiency.

Interstitial Space Cleaning
Interstitial space is that volume of space above the operating area's ceilings where the mechanical systems such as HVAC duct, electrical and piping are run. These mechanical systems often have valves, instruments and other items which require periodic cleaning. This space is also often used as a return air plenum warranting periodic cleaning to alleviate potential detrimental health effects on people.

Laboratory Equipment Cleaning
Regular cleaning and sanitizing is necessary to keep laboratory equipment and tools in operable condition and to maintain peak efficiency and safety.

Lead Abatement
As an industry expert in Lead Abatement, VIACS can deliver a wide array of lead abatement techniques in a variety of settings.

Mold Abatement
Molds can be found most anywhere, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. VIACS technicians can remediate your indoor mold problem by not only stopping the source of moisture but also removing the mold growth.

Paint Booth Cleaning
