Do you have questions about air duct cleaning procedures? Would you like to know how to make sure your indoor air is free of contaminants? Then check out the following FAQs.
Will having my air ducts cleaned make my house cleaner as well?
Yes. All of our customers report a noticeable difference in the amount of dust that settles on their floors and furniture after having their air ducts cleaned. Over time, your ductwork naturally accumulates dust and debris which are then recirculated through your indoor air, leaving deposits all over your home. If you notice excessive dust accumulation, it's usually a sign that air duct cleaning is well past due.
Can I save energy if I keep some HVAC vents closed permanently?
This is definitely not the way to improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. In fact, you will make it work harder and increase the risk of damage and failure of its components. The way to improve energy efficiency is to seal leaks in your air ducts and to have professional air duct cleaning performed on a regular basis.
Can I clean my air ducts on my own?
Apart from checking your filters, you should leave every major aspect of air duct cleaning to our professional technicians. Using a vacuum cleaner to remove some visible debris won't solve any of your problems. In fact, most sections of your ductwork system will be unreachable to you. What's more, there are dangerous contaminants that could be lurking inside your air ducts, and you definitely don't have the right gear and the necessary training to deal with them properly.
How long will the results of air duct cleaning last?
In most cases, the HVAC air ducts will remain clean for at least a year. However, there are various factors that can speed up the contamination. These range from less frequent changing of the air filter to air duct damage and leaks. In general, it is important to provide regular HVAC maintenance and to keep a frequent check on the indoor air quality.
