Why Duct Cleaning is Necessary
Duct cleaning is the first step towards improving indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can lead to an increased risk of allergy-related sickness, asthma, lung disease, and even lung cancer. Maintaining indoor air quality is essential to your health and the health of your family and co-workers. A powerful and effective way to maximize the amount of clean, allergen-free air in your indoor environment is to have the ducts of your system cleaned.
Air ducts provide a very important function as they circulate the air from your heating and cooling system in and out of each room, which allows for consistent comfort regardless of the season. Ducting systems are often the biggest culprit of poor indoor air quality and we make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.
In fact, all of the air in your home or business circulates through ducts multiple times a day. The air cycling through your ducts is the same air that completely fills your living environment…and it is the same air that you and your family breathe. As such, you want this air to be as clean as possible.
Air Duct Cleaning refers to the removal of dust and contaminants within the ductwork. This includes the supply and return air ducts as well as the registers and diffusers in each room. Our powerful vacuums work with compressed air, whipper lines and brushes to break loose and whisk away all dust and debris, preventing it from re-circulating throughout the home.
A cleaning every 5-7 years can provide relief from a whole host of problems. Proper duct cleaning can reduce the amount of dust being pushed out into the home and if you find yourself needing to dust multiple times a week, this may be a great solution.
Benefits to having your air ducts professionally cleaned:
Creates a Cleaner Living Environment
Having your air ducts professionally cleaned reduces the dust that would otherwise circulate throughout your living space, landing on your furniture, your bedding, your flooring…just about everywhere. Fortunately, a thorough air duct cleaning reduces the amount of interior cleaning and dusting necessary to maintain a hygienic home.
Reduces Allergens and Irritants
In addition to dust, air ducts frequently contain harmful contaminants and micro-organisms. These include pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew, mold spores, and similar toxins. People who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems are particularly sensitive to these airborne particles. A periodic air duct cleaning promotes healthier living…otherwise the dirty air in your home just keeps re-circulating over and over.
Helps Everyone Breathe Easier
Even if no one in your household suffers from chronic allergies or respiratory problems, cleaner air makes it easier for everyone to breathe. Even among the healthiest, dust and pollutants entering the nose and lungs can trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as sinus and bronchial congestion. Air duct cleaning creates a more comfortable environment and promotes well-being. Given the choice between clean air and dirty air, which would you rather breathe?
Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors
Pets, household cleaning agents, paint fumes, mold, tobacco use and even food preparation all contribute to stale smells in the air ducts. Every time the furnace or air conditioner is running, these odors will repeatedly flow through the house. Even accumulation of dust and dirt over the years can lead to a musty scent coming from the ductwork. A detailed cleaning of the air ducts removes all odor trapping particles, resulting in a fresher smelling home.
Improves Air Flow Efficiency
Ductwork and registers that have a heavy build-up of dust and grime can restrict the flow of air from the furnace and air conditioner. This means your system will have to work harder to heat or cool your home, resulting in a decreased level of efficiency. Conversely, a clean system will operate at peak efficiency and provide the most cost-effective performance for your energy dollar.

How Duct Cleaning Works
Our technicians will do a thorough inspection of your heating and air conditioning systems in order to determine where molds and other debris may be located. Imaging devices allow us to gain a full picture of your ducts. The duct cleaning process involves a variety of tools. First, vacuums and hand tools are used to loosen debris throughout the ducts, then a vacuum system is used to pull out debris and dust from the ducting. If the state of the ducts is severe, sanitizers may be required. In spaces that are exposed to high outdoor pollution, duct cleaning can have a tremendously positive impact.
