How important is Air Duct Cleaning?
There are many reasons why air duct cleaning is important. Here are the most common reasons why air duct cleaning is done.
• Allergies & Asthma:
Our ducts are filled with dust, debris, and other toxic substances. Each time the vents are turned on for heat or cold air, these substances enter into our lungs causing inflammation. This inflammation can lead to allergenic symptoms. Air duct cleaning can help minimize the risk of these substances entering our respiratory system.
• Visible water or mould in the HVAC system:
Very few of us have ever looked inside our ducts. Sometimes there is mould which is very hazardous to our health. By calling an air duct cleaning specialist, you can have them inspect your ducts and find out if there are any areas of concern.
• Construction and renovation:
Very frequently our air ducts get filled with debris. This can be because you have just moved into a newly constructed home. You should have them cleaned as soon as you can if you find them clogged.
• Insects or rodents:
If you suspect insects to be in your HVAC system, getting air duct cleaning should be definitely something to keep in mind. However, if you spot rodents in your home or office – then air duct cleaning is highly recommended. Rodents leave toxic wastes which is very toxic to our health.
What can you expect from an air duct cleaning service provider?
1) Open doors
Expect to have an air duct cleaning service team come in and out from your door as they deliver supplies and materials to do their job. They will also need to look for your supply and return vents. Be prepared by counting, and knowing where all your vents are.
2) Inspection of HVAC system
Be ready to have your HVAC system opened and inspected. Be sure to be with the air duct cleaning service team as they open it and inspect it. They will probably highlight any concerns. Ask them for maintenance tips that relate to your system.
3) Protection for carpets, and household furniture
Ensure that they put protective blankets on the carpets that they walk on. Also be sure that your walls are protected when they bring in the main vacuum. Most air duct cleaning service providers will use the blanket to cover the wall – to avoid it getting scratched by the vacuum’s tube.
4) Contact vacuum and air brushes
Know that they will bring in a contact vacuum and hook it up to your HVAC system. They will also most likely use a number of air brushes to clean your vents. For the air duct cleaning service team to do this, they must cut holes into your HVAC system.
5) Hole cutting and sealing
Be sure to count how many holes they make. Once the vacuuming is done, they will seal the holes with an insulated seal.
6) Final Walk Through
Once they have completed the job, they will do a walk through with you. It will include recounting the vents, as well as the number of hook-ups and any other services that you have asked for.
