Signs Your Home Needs a Duct Cleaning
If you experience indoor allergies or if your air conditioner sends the dust flying, your home may benefit from a duct and vent cleaning. Ideally, the ductwork should form a clean, fully sealed air distribution system. However, over the years, contaminants can enter your HVAC unit by sneaking past the filter, creeping through cracks, or falling through floor-level vents. Contaminants that enter your ducts coat the internal parts of your HVAC system, slow the airflow, and decrease the unit’s efficiency. They also affect your home’s air quality. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends cleaning the ductwork in the following situations.
- To control visible dust that streams from the vents
- To clean debris from remodeling or home improvement projects
- To reduce stale or musty odors that are noticeable when the system starts
- To sanitize microbial growth caused by water damage or excess humidity
- To eliminate pet dander, smoke, or debris from previous residents
- To remove pathogens and allergens related to pest infestations
What to Expect During a Duct Cleaning
For optimal results, our duct and vent cleanings involve a thorough multistep process. First, we insert a specialized brush, which rotates inside the air duct. While the brush spins, it loosens any debris stuck inside. As the brush is scrubbing the inside walls, the vacuum sucks up the loosened debris, leaving you with clean air ducts.
To prevent recontamination, we thoroughly clean the return and supply sides of the HVAC ducts as well as the evaporator coils, fan, and air handling components. If problems are uncovered during the cleaning, our service technicians can seal the ducts and repair any cracks to prevent contaminants from entering in the future. Clean, properly sealed ducts can reduce allergy symptoms, improve your home’s indoor air quality, and help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently.
