Dirty filterWhen was the last time you cleaned your home’s air ducts or drier vent?

Over time, your HVAC system’s air ducts, registers, grilles, and diffusers can become clogged with dirt, dust, pollen, and other debris. Combine this with moisture that’s present like your air conditioner’s condensation, and now you’ve got the perfect environment for mold growth. When your HVAC system cycles on, this mold, dust, and other debris is released into your home and contaminates your air supply—drastically reducing your indoor air quality.

The goal of an air duct cleaning is to remove this duct contamination and improve your indoor air quality. Duct cleaning is essentially important if anyone in your household suffers from asthma or allergies.

 

Duct Cleaning Our Duct Cleaning Process

If you decide to have your heating and cooling system cleaned, our team of certified technicians will ensure the air duct system it is thoroughly cleaned. We will use specialized tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts, and remove contaminants with a high-powered vacuum cleaner.  If necessary and applicable, we may use chemical biocides that kill germs and microbiological contaminants. This is usually applied to the inside of the heating and cooling duct work and to other system components.

Other air duct cleaning methods may include applying chemical treatments to cover the inside surfaces of the air ducts and equipment units in order to help control mold growth and prevent the release of dirt particles from ducts. These chemical treatments on heating and cooling ductwork are applied after the air duct system has been properly cleaned of all visible dust or debris. 

Drier vent cleaning

Annual dryer vent cleaning is one of the most important services to retain to ensure that you are safe in your home. According to consumer reports.org, “$80 million in property damage is caused by clothes dryer fires, many of which are ignited by lint build-up in or around the machine.”

Dryer vent fires are the #2 cause of home fires in the United States. A surprising number of home fires originate in vents that become obstructed by lint. It is recommended to have your dryer vents inspected and cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Does duct cleaning prevent health problems?

As the EPA Indoor Air Quality describes (https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq) “Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. Neither do studies conclusively demonstrate that particle (e.g., dust) levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts. This is because much of the dirt in air ducts adheres to duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. It is important to keep in mind that dirty air ducts are only one of many possible sources of particles that are present in homes. Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking, or just moving around can cause greater exposure to contaminants than dirty air ducts. Moreover, there is no evidence that a light amount of household dust or other particulate matter in air ducts poses any risk to your health.”

“There are examples of ducts that have become badly contaminated with a variety of materials that may pose risks to your health. The duct system can serve as a means to distribute these contaminants throughout a home. In these cases, duct cleaning may make sense. However, a light amount of household dust in your air ducts is normal. Duct cleaning is not considered to be a necessary part of yearly maintenance of your heating and cooling system, which consists of regular cleaning of drain pans and heating and cooling coils, regular filter changes and yearly inspections of heating equipment. Research continues in an effort to evaluate the potential benefits of air duct cleaning.

Mold in ductwork

You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if:

There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system. There are several important points to understand concerning mold detection in heating and cooling systems:

  • Many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be accessible for a visible inspection, so ask the service provider to show you any mold they say exists.
  • You should be aware that although a substance may look like mold, a positive determination of whether it is mold or not can be made only by an expert and may require laboratory analysis for final confirmation.
  • If you have insulated air ducts and the insulation gets wet or moldy it cannot be effectively cleaned and should be removed and replaced.
  • If the conditions causing the mold growth in the first place are not corrected, mold growth will recur.

Ducts are infested with vermin, e.g. (rodents or insects).
Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.

  • If any of the conditions identified above exists, it usually suggests one or more underlying causes. Prior to any cleaning, retrofitting, or replacing of your ducts, the cause or causes must be corrected or else the problem will likely recur.”

  • “You may consider having your air ducts cleaned simply because it seems logical that air ducts will get dirty over time and should be occasionally cleaned. EPA does not recommend that the air ducts be cleaned routinely, but only as needed.”

  • “Whether or not you decide to have the air ducts in your home cleaned, preventing water and dirt from entering the system is the most effective way to prevent contamination”
