How to select a good Duct Cleaner for Air Duct Cleaning

By Uniqueproviders Subscribe to RSS | December 21st 2011 | Views:

First Signs

Go to your ducts and take a quick sniff. Based on its smell you’ll know if you have: insects, mice, or even moulds. Each of them is a case that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Different Reasons

Did you just move into a new home? Sometimes the construction crew may have swept all kinds of debris, dirt, drywall, lunch bags, coffee cops, and other things that don’t belong into your vents. Now all this stuff definitely doesn’t belong in our vents.

Allergies demystified

Some duct cleaners will tell you that duct cleaning will purge you of your allergies. This is fiction. There is dust everywhere you go. However, duct cleaning will remove a substantial portion of the potential toxic substances that could be hiding in your HVAC system.

Moisture and moulds

Did you know it is important to clean all the components of an HVAC system? The components such as the diffusers, the grilles, heating and cooling coils, and condensate drain pans – can act as magnets for drawing things like mould spores. These moulds can be very lethal. (Hint: In July 1976 – at an American convention, an outbreak of Legionellosis, had occurred)

In order to avoid moisture and moulds, you must choose an experienced duct cleaner who will cut into your vents and inspect it. This will ensure that your HVAC system is in check.

It’s now that time again

Duct cleaning should typically be done every 3 years. Depending on your needs and other factors it can be recommended to be done frequently.

It is mandatory that when you hire an air duct cleaner, he provides you service worthy of your investment. Below are a couple of checkpoints that you need to keep in mind:

How to know if an air duct cleaner did a good job?

Ask the air cleaner to educate you on all the parts on the HVAC system. Be sure to ask which are the supply and entry vents and all the components. This way, you are able to answer the questions in this checklist.

Questions for the main system:

Most air duct cleaners have basic packages that include cleaning for all the ducts and components.

1) Did they clean all the ducts (supply and entry)?

2) Did they clean all the HVAC components?

a. Drain Pans?

b. Humidifiers?

c. Coils?

d. Fans?

Questions for the cooling components:

Be sure to ask the air duct cleaners what each part does and how to maintain it.

1) Cooling Coil: Are both sides of the cooling coil clean?

2) Drain Pan: Is the coil drain pan clean and is it draining properly?

3) Blower blades/compartment: Is it clean and oil free?

4) Plenums: Do filters fit? And are plenums dry and clean?

Questions for metal ducts:

1) Is the interior surface free of debris (select sites in both return and supply)?

2) Are all the holes that were made sealed with insulated materials?

Questions for air vents:

1) Have all registers, grilles, and diffusers been firmly attached and screwed back on?

2) Are they all visibly clean?

Questions for system operation

It is vital that you have the air duct cleaners turn on and off the system to show you that all the modes work.

1) Can the system function in the heating mode?

2) Can the system function in the cooling mode?
