The air ducts are like the lungs of your home. They connect the air handler and the heater or air conditioner with the rooms. The air handler pulls air through the ducts to be heated or cooled, and then sends the air back through the air returns.
We know that air duct cleaning isn't as well known a service as carpet cleaning and thus customers have a lot of questions about it. That is the reason we gathered and answered the most common questions about air duct cleaning.
Air duct cleaning is a professional cleaning service that cleans out dust and other allergens that are lining the walls of the ducts. The dust builds up over time, and air duct cleaning safely removes this dust and dirt from your home.
There is no set rule for how often you should clean your air ducts. It really depends on the condition of the air ducts, and more importantly, on the health and welfare of the people in the building. Air ducts are one possible source of indoor air pollution, so if indoor air quality is important to you, air duct cleaning should be considered.
If you or someone you love suffers from allergies, air duct cleaning can help. A clean air duct system means that the deposits of mold spores, dust mite waste, pollen and dander that have been sitting there forever are now gone. Air duct cleaning can be an important part of your allergy management plan.
Air duct cleaning is done under negative pressure so that all the debris is sucked to a central vacuum instead of being allowed to escape into the home. Once the ducts are put under negative pressure, a brush or air whip is introduced into the duct to mechanically loosen all debris to be vacuumed up.
Air duct cleaning may help reduce dust, especially if you find that your air vents are coated in dust and you have a lot of dust in your home.
