Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

It is believed that contaminants, dust, and debris circulating throughout your HVAC system and air ducts can lead to people getting sick or experiencing undesirable health effects. For many, the condition of their air duct network is a mystery because it is challenging to see the entire system. Our professionals can work to provide a thorough inspection of your whole HVAC system and connected components to show you when and if duct cleaning could be beneficial for your home.

How Does Duct Cleaning Work?  

Once it is determined that cleaning your system could be beneficial, it is wise to get this started as soon as possible. With knowledge from the borescope’s retrieved imagery, we can isolate the areas of your duct network in most need of immediate attention. Creating a negative pressure allows us to agitate heaped particles and thick debris from the sheet metal walls to loosen these soils and prepare them for removal by high powered vacuums. Stubborn soils might require special tools to agitate them for extraction, including:

  • Whips
  • Soft-bristled brushes
  • Hard-bristled brushes

Are There Incidents that Require Duct Cleaning Immediately?  

Among the situations that could demand a need for duct cleaning immediately are furnace puff backs. When oil furnaces delay in the ignition, a small explosion can occur that sends soot and soils through ducts and connected rooms. Cleaning up these ionized particles involves potent cleaning products, as well as immediate restoration solutions to reduce the impact on underlying materials.

However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
