Why do I need my ducts cleaned?
There are many reasons why you may need your duct system cleaned. The main reason is that your duct system is a major source of indoor air pollution. Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. These contaminants build up inside your ductwork over time and can help make your duct system an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes. You can be subjected to these contaminants each time air is distributed through your ventilation system. Cleaning your ducts would remove these contaminants and lessen the chance of your ventilating system continuing to be a source of indoor air pollution.
How does duct cleaning work?
Our courteous and professionally trained technicians use the source removal cleaning method. Source removal duct cleaning uses a technically advanced, high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) filtrated vacuum system that places the duct system under vacuum or negative pressure. The unit collects debris and contaminates from the duct and returns “operating room” clean air back into the environment. Debris is loosened or dislodged by compressed air and specially designed compressed air-driven tools that work within different types of duct systems.
Indoor Air Quality
How often do I need my ducts cleaned?
Industry standards recommend that you have your air ducts inspected every two years for cleanliness and have them cleaned, on average, every five to seven years in order to maintain acceptable indoor air quality.
Do I need to continue to have preventative maintenance done on my equipment?
In order to maintain a clean and efficient system, it is always highly recommended that you have regular maintenance done on your heating and cooling systems. It is also very important to check your filters often and replace when necessary. The following are a few of the many benefits of scheduled maintenance:
- Energy Savings - Saves Money!
- Extends the Life of your System
- Peace of Mind!
There are companies in this market offering residential duct cleaning that spend less than a half a day and offer a very low price to clean your system. Standards recommended by the EPA suggest that an average size house will require four to eight hours of cleaning to provide an acceptable cleaning job. So if you are considering having your ducts cleaned, make sure you are aligned with a reputable company that is willing to educate you and to offer a service that will give you the peace of mind that your ducts are being thoroughly cleaned. If the price seems too good to be true - it probably is.
