Good air quality is an important factor for well-being in homes, workplaces and public buildings. During the last ten years, the requirements for indoor air quality and energy efficiency in buildings have increased considerably.
Espoon Asunnot has nearly 16 000 rental apartments, creating homes for more than 30 000 people – 10% of all Espoo residents. The apartment houses have been mainly built between the 1980s and 2000s and they are located all around Espoo. Ventilation maintenance is an important part of their installation services. Puhdas Ilma K & V has been responsible for cleaning the ventilation ducts under a contract that is re-tendered every year.
In addition, the company has for several years maintained the ventilation systems of nearly 300 housing companies of Espoon Asunnot. Ongoing maintenance involves identifying defects and deficiencies and, if necessary, carrying out repairs. At times the machines are renewed, in which case Puhdas Ilma K & V provides spare parts or a completely new ventilation machine. Work is sometimes carried out in challenging conditions, for example when a machine must be transported to the roof using a crane and when installations are carried out in small and confined spaces.
