Families spend more time indoors than ever before, so maintaining healthy indoor air quality is critical, especially for those suffering from allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions. Over time, dirt, dust and other contaminants accumulate in the interior of your ductwork and coat vital HVAC system components. Regular duct cleaning helps eliminate these toxins so the air inside your home stays clean and smelling fresh.
Does Your Ductwork Need to be Cleaned?
Mold and fungi are living organisms that thrive in the dark, moist conditions inside your central air conditioner. If mold is present at the evaporator coil, the action of moving air draws the live spores into the airstream where they are eventually distributed into every room in the building. If there are foul smells coming from the supply registers when the air conditioner is on, you may have a mold or fungi issue. A trained HVAC service technician can inspect the interior of your cooling and heating system as part of a seasonal maintenance program.
The Duct Cleaning Process
Duct cleaning technicians examine the inside of the ductwork to assess its overall condition and identify problem areas. An access hole is cut into the supply and return sides of the system, and brushes and air whips are used to dislodge caked-on dirt and grime. Finally, a commercial-grade vacuum is attached to the ductwork, and the contaminants are pulled out and deposited into a sealed container. Interior components are also cleaned, including the evaporator coil, air handler, fan motors, and housings. Customers have the option to apply an environmentally-friendly anti-microbial spray to the duct surface to prevent future mold and fungi growth.
