What Is Air Duct Cleaning?
During an air duct cleaning, one of our trained professionals will access your heating and cooling system and clean your air ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, heating and cooling coils, drip pans, fan motor, and fan housing, as well as the air-handling unit housing.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, your heating and cooling system may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen, or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased, and spores from such growth may be released into the home’s living space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them”.
That’s why, when selecting a service provider to clean your air ducts, it’s crucial that you find someone who is trained and willing to show you photographic evidence of what is discovered inside your ducts.
The EPA advises, “If you decide to have your heating and cooling system cleaned, it is important to make sure the service provider agrees to clean all components of the system and is qualified to do so. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.”
Please note that if you have insulated air ducts and the insulation gets wet or moldy it should be removed and replaced, not just cleaned. It’s also important that the conditions that caused the mold growth in the first place are corrected – otherwise, mold will just grow again.
Signs That Your Air Ducts May Need Cleaning
Regular maintenance of your home’s air ducts is important for ensuring good indoor air quality and efficient HVAC system operation. While the need for duct cleaning can vary based on factors such as location, the age of the system, and local air quality, there are some signs that may indicate it’s time to clean your air ducts.
