SIGNS YOU NEED DUCT CLEANING
Have you noticed particles of dust puffing out from an air duct every time you turn on your home’s heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system? Have you seen dust or pet hair trapped in a vent? Is there dust coating the grill on the return air registers? These might be indications that your home’s duct work might be due for a thorough cleaning. Inside your HVAC system, fine dust collects on air duct surfaces, vents, motors and coils. Flakes of dead skin, hair and pet dander catch onto the dust, and before too long this process creates a dense, mat-like environment where bacteria, mold, dust mites and allergens can flourish. Air filters remove most of these from the air stream, but not for all parts of the HVAC system. That’s why it’s important to periodically check the condition of your air ducts to see if they could use air duct cleaning services.
TOP 5 BENEFITS OF CLEANING YOUR DUCTS!
- Better and reliable over-all performance from your HVAC system
- Fewer expensive repairs from wear and tear and longer HVAC system life
- More energy efficiency, reducing your energy bills
- Lower likelihood of respiratory and allergy problems
- Less dust makes it easier to clean and maintain your home’s living space
If not properly maintained, your ducts 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.
THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE
INSPECTION: Your system is inspected to ensure that duct cleaning is needed. Depending on the results the air handler and its components may need to be cleaned as well.
REGISTERS REMOVED: Your registers are carefully removed and cleaned. Your return air grills are also cleaned.
DUCT CLEANING: Using the RotoBrush your supply, trunk and return lines are cleaned.
FILTRATION: The RotoBrush comes equipped with a HEPA filter which removes and cleans 99.97% of particles.
FINISHING TOUCHES: Depending on the system, your unit may be sanitized or filtration system may be recommended. Check out our air filtration systems here!
