Air Duct Cleaning
If you want to get rid of impurities and indoor pollution at your home, call and set up an appointment with our air duct cleaning experts.
OUR AIR DUCT CLEANING PROCESS
We systematically clean from each vent all the way to the next vent so that we get 100% coverage from vent-to-vent. We use well-controlled brushing of duct surfaces in conjunction with vacuum cleaning to dislodge and trap dust and other particles via HEPA filters. We use only soft-bristled brushes for fiberglass duct board, sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass, and flex duct. We take care to protect the ductwork, including sealing and re-insulating any access holes we may have made or used so they are airtight.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out. Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
WE USE THE CLEANING METHOD MOST RECOMMENDED IN THE INDUSTRY!
Particulates (dust and other small particles) stick or statically cling or to the interior of ductwork. Bacteria, mold, and other harmful biological growth can hide, grow, and thrive in this medium, particularly in the presence of high moisture.
The recommended method for Dryer Vent and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) ductwork cleaning is “Source Removal”, the mechanical cleaning of system components to remove obstructions, debris, dirt and dust.
Mechanical Cleaning involves two key steps:
Rotary brushing to loosen the debris inside ductwork and HVAC air handling components.
Vacuuming using a high-velocity HEPA filtration system to safely remove debris from the HVAC system. The goal is to reduce contaminants to acceptable levels (industry standard) without re-introducing these contaminants into household air.
Currently the safest and most effective air duct cleaning method utilizes a portable HEPA filtered vacuum coupled with a rotary brush (agitation device). Brush diameter (interchangeable brush heads) is selected by the operator to fit various sizes and shapes of ductwork and vents. Rotary action of the brush head effectively “scours” the interior of ductwork and air handling components as the device is guided through the HVAC system. This technology utilizes a high-velocity vacuum behind the brush to create “lift” for debris removal with HEPA filtration to prevent potential of cross contamination.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system.
Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
NOTE: Our Duct Cleaning Service refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers. However, it does not refer to (or include) the regular annual maintenance or any needed repair required to be performed by a state licensed HVAC technician (mechanical contractor) including cleaning inside mechanical equipment (e.g., heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing).
