Duct cleaning is another key element in maintaining your heating and cooling system. When your ducts are clean, your system works more efficiently, and the indoor air quality improves significantly. Dust, pet hair, and other debris can get trapped in your duct system and create clogs that restrict airflow. Additionally, mold can also grow inside ducts if there’s a moisture issue or gaps in the ducts.

Preventing Fire Hazards
In addition to dust, lint, and other particles that are produced within the home, materials leftover from construction can also get trapped in the ducts, such as sawdust, nails, pieces of dry wall, and other heavy debris. These can weigh down your duct system and cause it to collapse. In addition, the lint and other flammable materials can get trapped by the debris and create a fire given the right conditions. An air duct cleaning by a certified technician will decrease the chances of a house fire. For the same reasons, it is also important to have an annual dryer vent cleaning.
Preventing Mold Growth
Some of the naturally–occurring molds that are found inside and outside of your home can produce toxic substances that are released into the air as microscopic spores. Toxic mold spores are produced by some of the most common types of mold, and most of these harmful spores are found in places exposed to moisture or affected by water damage. When these airborne pathogens get into your air system, it can lead to respiratory problems, severe allergic reactions, and other health concerns. Once they reproduce, mold spores continue to grow until the conditions are no longer viable for their reproduction. This is why it’s important to hire a professional to clean your air duct system at least once a year. This will minimize the chances of mold growth and improve indoor air quality.
Air Duct Cleaning Process
If you’ve hired a professional to clean your air duct system, and they make a single entry hole, or they take an hour or less to do the job, you should hire another contractor. Properly cleaning a residential air duct system takes several hours, in addition to making multiple holes for access. This is done so that the technician can fully inspect the duct system as well as give it a thorough cleaning. We use the highest quality equipment to get the job done right, and our certified technicians are committed to providing complete customer satisfaction. We also seal any places that the ducts have gaps to increase the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system. This also helps you save on energy bills.
