If you have been reading up on duct cleanings and indoor air quality there is a good chance that you have been seeing the name NADCA quite frequently. This is simply nothing more than the National Air Duct Cleaning Association. This is an organization that was formed in 1989.
They were formed as a nonprofit organization as an association of companies that are engaged in duct cleanings. The organization was pretty much developed to establish guidelines from companies that perform duct cleanings. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every duct cleaning company out there is registered with the NADCA, but the ones that are can be trusted.
The NADCA’s Mission Statement
When the organization was first created they simply wanted to define and lay out the standards for any company that performed duct cleanings. Well, since this time they have expanded and grown and so has their mission statement.
They now want to lay out guidelines and standards for companies that inspect, clean, and restore HVAC systems. The organization not only lays out guidelines, but they educate, certify, and even promote companies that are registered with them. The number one goal of the association is to be the number one resource for consumers and other entities that are seeking air duct cleaning and HVAC inspection or restoration.
The Board Of Directors
The NADCA is comprised of a unique staff and board of directors. The current president and chairman of the board is a man by the name of Richard Lantz. He is a certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) and Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) that has over 21 years of experience revolving around indoor air quality.
He has served on this very prestigious board since 2012 and is also a member of the Executive Committee. In addition to this, he is also a member of the Fall Technical Conference.
