We can help you with the potential health hazards caused due to impure air and instruct on how they can be avoided. Thanks to us, you will enjoy cleaner quality air in your home.

Air Duct Cleaning

Research has revealed that the air present inside the average American home is more polluted than the one which is present outdoors. Everyday pollutants are brought in on your clothes and shoes. Once these pollutants are inside your house the only way to get them out is through the ducts. When no maintenance is carried out on the air ducts, their exits tend to get narrower due to the collection of the grime and the dirt. Thus, the HVAC systems present are likely to contain bacteria, fungus, dust mites, and pollen. These pollutants stay suspended in the air duct and they are circulated right back into your house. Any neglect to these air ducts can result in a buildup of these pollutants which can affect the quality of air, resulting in serious health issues for you and your loved ones.

When you choose our service, not only will the quality of the air be cleaner but you will save some money on electricity since the power required to make the air duct work would be less. This is an added benefit to clean ducts.

Are there any benefits of getting the air ducts cleaned?

When air ducts are cleaned regularly, the quality of the air present in your home is significantly improved. Air ducts over a period of time tend to accumulate with fungi, molds, dust particles and many other pollutants. When a thorough cleanup of the air ducts is carried out, the quality of the air improves as the pollutants are eliminated. This makes the air in your house fresher and more hygienic.

How often should the Air Ducts be cleaned?
The answer to this question directly depends on the factors like the number of people present in your house, the presence of smokers in the house, presence of pets, presence of people who suffer from any allergies or asthma, etc. Ideally, it is recommended that you get your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. However, to enjoy the cleanest air, we would recommend you get air ducts cleaned every two years. More frequently if you or someone in your household suffer from allergies or asthma.
Do we need to leave your premises while your air ducts are getting cleaned?
When we service your air ducts, you are not required to go anywhere. In fact, you can continue doing your daily function without worrying about anything. The cleaning process is neither invasive nor is it noisy. Besides, the technicians block off the vents when they are doing the cleaning so as to prevent any form of pollutants from entering your home.
Can I get the air duct vents cleaned without working on the HVAC system?
We follow the guidelines given by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association when it comes to the cleaning air duct systems. The only time we would simply clean the ducts and not work on the HVAC system is when you are going to replace the old system with a new one. If you do not wish to replace the old system with the new one, we would not service just the ducts because there would be no point servicing them alone. As soon as you put the heater on, or turn on the air, the pollutants which lie on the HVAC system would be blown onto the duct which would render the service useless.

Factors That Influence Air Quality

The following are the factors which cause a buildup of pollutants-

  • Second hand smoke from neighbours or self-smoking
  • Hair & dander from pets
  • Any kind of damage from water in the air duct or your home
  • Leftover dust & grime from renovation projects

Our Cleaning Process

We first do a proper inspection and then we clean the system’s components which includes air handler, heat exchanger, return system, blower, coils, supply ductwork, diffusers, registers, distribution plenum to ensure that the process of cleaning takes place thoroughly.

Upon inspecting the air ducts, we might recommend you an EPA approved biocide which will thoroughly disinfect your non- porous system components.

While cleaning the HVAC system, we will use the safest and the most effective products. Lastly, we will repair & seal all the openings cut into the duct.
