Residential Air Duct Cleaning
An average home collects up to 40lbs of dirt and dust per year. Most of this debris ends up in your home heating and air conditioning system and can be circulated around your home leading to or aggravating respiratory issues for people living in the home. This is why investing in a professional residential air duct cleaning service is vital.
Why You Should Have Your Air Duct Cleaned?
The average home collects tons of dust and debris which are typically collected in the ventilation system. This blocks the air ducts and other key components of your home ventilation and furnace fixtures such as the blower and evaporator coil. Allowing a buildup of dust and debris can contaminate the system and restrict airflow. This is not only bad for your health but also means that your air conditioning will need to expend more energy to function. Cleaning your air duct regularly will increase the energy efficiency of your HVAC system which translates to lower utility bills and longer-lasting air conditioning systems.
How We Clean Air Ducts
The first step in our air duct cleaning process is to carry out a thorough inspection of your air duct. This will help verify if your air duct needs to be cleaned in the first place and how to properly execute the project. Once the inspection is completed, our technicians will hook our HEPA filtered vacuum and high-powered blower to your air duct system. These will agitate dirt, dust, and debris in your air duct and dislodge them. The dislodged debris is sucked through the vacuum into the truck and the vent is thoroughly cleaned out.
Can I Clean My Air Duct By Myself?
When you need air duct cleaning services, it is best that you call for professional air duct cleaning services rather than attempt to clean it yourself. Getting into your home ductwork can be very dangerous. Not only do you risk harming yourself but you can also damage your HVAC system in the process. This is why air duct cleaning should only be handled by professional air duct cleaning companies that have all the training, experience, and the right equipment to effectively get rid of dust and allergens in your cooling and heating system.
When Should I Have My Air Duct Cleaned?
Generally, according to the recommendations of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), your air duct should be cleaned at least once every 3 to 5 years. However, how often you clean your air duct depends on various factors. If you are moving into a new home, it is recommended that you have the air duct cleaned before you move in. Air duct cleaning should also be carried out when you carry out a home remodeling or construction project as dust and debris would have accumulated in your vent. Other conditions that may warrant an air duct cleaning is a visible presence or signs of mold and excess dust and debris in your ductwork or when you have a pest infestation.
