HVAC Duct Cleaning

Can I clean my AC ducts myself?

When it comes down to it, cleaning air ducts is not a do it yourself project. It necessitates the use of instruments such as a high-powered vacuum and rotary brushes, which you probably don't have laying around the garage. Furthermore, incorrect cleaning could cause duct damage, leading in costly repairs.

Does cleaning air ducts really make a difference?

Duct cleaning has never been proved to actually prevent health concerns. Neither studies definitively indicate that particle levels in homes rise due to filthy air ducts or fall following cleaning.

How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?

Signs that your ducts need cleaning dust and dirt have jammed the vents and ducts. Your air filters get blocked. Unpleasant odor coming from the ducts. Mold and mildew growth inside or outside your HVAC system. Unstable or inadequate airflow in the home. Infestation of insects, rats, and other vermin in your air ducts.

Is air duct sanitizing worth it?

Sanitizing the air ducts is essential for a healthy home. All of the germs, bacteria, mold, and mildew that you can't see in your vents are absolutely harmful to your home's indoor air quality, which is why we recommend sanitization for every HVAC system we clean.

How often does ductwork need to be cleaned?

Experts recommend getting your air ducts cleaned every 2 to 3 years to avoid several maintenance and health issues. Homes with dogs or children with allergies, on the other hand, should have their air ducts professionally cleaned more frequently than the recommended average.

Does air duct cleaning make a mess?

If done properly, duct cleaning should not blow dust into your living space, and there is no evidence that professional duct cleaning is harmful to your indoor air quality.

Why are my cold air returns so dusty?

When your air conditioner is turned on, the blower constantly circulates air around your home. As a result, when you dust your home, the airborne dust particles are sucked up by the system's return vent and eliminated by the air filters.

Does duct cleaning remove mold?

Air duct cleaning is an essential element of home upkeep. Air duct cleaning not only removes dirt, dust, and other particles, but it also removes mold. Mold can be extremely harmful to human health.

Can dirty air ducts make you sick?

If your family is sicker than usual, with coughing, sneezing, sore throats, runny noses, nasal congestion, headaches, and low-grade fevers, they may have upper respiratory infections caused by filthy air ducts.

Is duct cleaning loud?

The cleaning process is not overly loud. The compressor area outside, as well as the furnace chamber, can be quite noisy. You can, however, remain in the house throughout the cleaning procedure.

Is furnace cleaning necessary?

For a smooth-running system and optimum indoor air quality, we recommend scheduling furnace maintenance every 1-2 years and duct cleaning every 3 to 5 years.

Do dust mites live in air ducts?

Dust mites do not reside in home air ducts. Many people spend a significant amount of time and money cleaning the air ducts in order to reduce dust mites. This is unnecessary since dust mites require at least 70% relative humidity and feeding.

Should ductwork be replaced after 20 years?

If your ducting is more than 15 years old, it should be replaced. The maximum lifespan of ductwork is 20-25 years. However, after 15 years, it begins to deteriorate, drastically diminishing the effectiveness of your HVAC system, so replacement is the wise decision.

Please take a few seconds to read our responses to the most frequently asked questions about our services.

How long does it take to clean air ducts in a house?

The air duct system of a normal single-family home takes two to four hours to clean with a crew of at least two technicians. Homes that are older or have pets may take longer to clean. Cleaning newer houses, townhomes, and condominiums may take less time.

What does black mold look like in AC vent?

Mold can form on the surface of air vents as well as the inside of your central HVAC unit and ductwork. Mold has a brownish or whitish color and is difficult to mistake for anything else. Just be careful not to confuse it with drywall dust, which is fairly frequent in new homes.

Does a new HVAC system include ductwork?

When you replace your air conditioner, you simply remove the old one, both inside and out, and install the new one. However, the ducts are a whole circulatory system. The ducts transport cooled air from your unit to the various vents throughout the house.

What happens if your dryer vent is not cleaned?

Lint can clog the exhaust system of your dryer, preventing it from running correctly. As a result, not only will the dryer take longer to dry your clothing, but it will also increase your electric cost and pose a fire danger.

Can you clean air ducts with shop vac?

Good vacuum cleaners are used to make the best duct cleaners. A heavy-duty vacuum cleaner is recommended, though a normal household vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment would work.

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation

Installing a vapor barrier in the crawl space is a low-cost solution to moisture control problems. Vapor barriers in the crawl area are used to keep moisture, water, and damp air from entering the home via the floor. This helps to prevent the spread of mold and mildew, which can cause structural damage and make living conditions uncomfortable for your family!

Crawl Space Mold Remediation

Mold removal from the crawl space is one of the most important chores in resolving moisture control issues. Mold may quickly become a major issue in a home, and those that move fast to clean up and treat the situation have a higher chance of keeping it from spreading. If you eliminate the mold before it spreads throughout your home, you will save time and money.
