Cofely Besix Facility Management (CBFM) has been awarded membership to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).
NADCA is a global trade association dedicated to providing information and helpful tools to the HVAC inspection, cleaning, and restoration industry, and support its members in attaining success with standards, education, certification, marketing, and advocacy.
Commenting on the certification, CBFM's operations manager, Bart Holsters said: "The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed indoor air pollution as the fourth greatest environmental threat; with indoor air found in some cases, up to 70 times more polluted than the outdoor air.
"At CBFM quality and safety are always our highest priority, and as duct cleaning and inspection is a highly-specialist activity, it is not surprising there is a requirement for competent and trained personnel.
"This is the reason we have chosen to become an active NADCA member, and with our specialist duct cleaning staff being NADCA trained and certified, we can now provide assurance to our clients that we conduct this activity to the highest standards.”
NADCA’s membership continues to grow each year, along with its training, education and certification opportunities for air systems cleaning specialists, mold remediators, HVAC inspectors and others.
NADCA has also published industry standards, educational materials and other useful information for consumers and members alike.
CBFM’s certified air systems cleaning specialist (ASCS), Christophe Van Hamme, functions as the reference point and trainer for all staff within the company.
“The new certification will definitely open new opportunities for us, and reinforce our skills in accordance with the latest industry standards and guidelines,” said Van Hamme.
“With the NADCA certification, we are able to provide our clients with the best information and guidelines in order to maintain and restore HVAC equipment to an optimal level of performance.”
