Why Clean Your Air Ducts?
Because Air Ducts Get Dirty. In addition to normal dust and dirt accumulation found in homes, there are several other factors that can increase the need for duct cleaning:
- Pet Hair and dander
- Allergens and irritants
- Household dust
- Smoke and cooking odors
- Renovations and construction dust
What is the Cleaning Process?
There are two key components to duct cleaning: breaking contaminants loose, and collection of contaminants.
- Breaking Contaminants Loose
Properly cleaning ducts requires removing the sources of contamination. Removal begins with the use of an agitation device designed to loosen contaminants from the surface within the air duct system.
- Collection of Contaminants
Once contaminants are loosened, a vacuum will be run through the ducts to extract all particles from the air ducts.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Clothes dryers with poorly maintained venting systems are associated with fires.
Other important reasons:
- Too much energy consumption
- Additional drying time
- Poor moisture removal
- Increased wear & tear on dryer
- Reduces animal nesting
How often should our air ducts be cleaned?
A home’s air ducts should be cleaned every 4 to 6 years. Homeowners with children, pets, respiratory issues or allergies may want to get their ducts cleaned more often.
How much time does it take to clean the air ducts in my home?
The typical single family home takes between 4 and 6 hours to clean. Newer homes & condominiums may take less time to clean.
Does the cleaning process make a mess in our home?
No, our technicians are equipped with high quality cleaning equipment.
Are chemicals used in the cleaning process?
No, chemicals are not used.
Do you have to cut any holes in the ductwork?
We typically cut a hole (service opening) in the duct in order to clean most effectively. All service openings will be sealed.
