Duct Cleaning Services Help Improve Indoor Air Quality
Service Today! provides high-quality air duct cleaning in Dallas. Dirt, dust, and biological contaminants can build up in air ducts, so air pollution isn’t only a problem outside. It can affect your quality of life indoors as well. Ductwork can both be a source of contamination or a pathway for various contaminants. But cleaning AC ducts regularly can make your home a cleaner place overall.
Why Do I Need to Clean My Air Ducts?
Air duct cleaning has many potential benefits. Although there are other factors in play, having your ductwork cleaned is a good idea if:
- Anyone in your household has allergies or unexplained respiratory symptoms or illnesses.
- You suspect there may be mold inside your ductwork.
- Rodents, insects, and other vermin have infested the ducts in your HVAC system.
- Your AC or furnace is not running as efficiently as it could.
- It’s been several years since the last HVAC duct cleaning.
How Do You Clean Air Ducts?
For ducts to be properly cleaned, it’s necessary to reach the supply and return ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, heating and cooling coils, fan motors and housings, air handling units, and condensate drain pans. A technician will open any access doors and ports to access the system. An inspection will then determine if there are any issues, such as contamination, air leaks, or materials that contain asbestos.
HVAC professionals use special tools to remove dirt and debris. Vacuum equipment collects particles or exhausts them outside your home. For vacuum systems that exhaust to the inside of your home, high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) equipment is used. During the cleaning process, our technicians will cover your carpets and furnishings for protection. Brushing duct surfaces is performed using a highly controlled process and soft-bristled tools for ducts that contain fiberglass.
Holes, tears, and other damage to air ducts will be repaired if found. And during AC duct cleaning, ducts are also sanitized and deodorized. We will also seal and re-insulate access points to ensure HVAC efficiency.
How Often Should I Clean My Air Ducts?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not consider duct cleaning a part of annual maintenance. Consider more frequent cleaning jobs if your home or HVAC system has water contamination or damage, there are smokers in your household, or you have pets that shed a great deal. Air duct cleaning should be performed prior to moving into a new home and after you renovate or remodel a house.
The National Air Duct Cleaning Association recommends having your air ducts inspected at least once a year. There’s no official guideline as to the intervals between cleaning services, but ductwork should be cleaned as needed. An inspection can help determine whether you need duct cleaning or other services such as leak repair.
