Cleaning air ducts seems pretty straight forward. After all, it’s just vacuuming the dust-out, right?
Unfortunately, it’s not. As anyone who’s tried to stuff their vacuum into a vent and attempt it knows, it’s actually pretty complicated.
Air duct cleaning requires special equipment and properly trained person to ensure the job is done right. Don’t be fooled by cheap ads that claim to clean your ducts. You get what you pay for. Most companies will take advantage of the fact that you’ll never check the results.
What’s The Big Deal?
Air ducts are like the veins of airflow through your house. Over time, these veins can get filled with all kinds of unwanted materials. From simple dirt and dust to animal nests, mold, and dead carcasses in some extreme cases, you’d be surprised what we find sometimes. It’s important to clean your ducts!
Cleaning your ducts will also help those that are sensitive to allergies. The dust particles that get kicked up every time your heating or air conditioning turns on can irritate the eyes and cause a sore throat.
How Does Cleaning Work?
Professionally trained cleaners will use specialized equipment to stir up the dust in a controlled manner and efficiently suck it out. When trained properly, this will happen without any dust entering your house. They’ll also capture the majority of dust and leave very little, if any, behind. Some vents will be sealed during this process. Cleaning air ducts isn’t that complicated – when you’re properly trained. Give us a call and we’ll get a professional to clean your ducts the right way.
