AIR DUCT CLEANING

AIR DUCT CLEANING

WHY AIR DUCT CLEANING IS IMPORTANT


Duct cleaning involves cleaning the various components of the heating and cooling system such as the registers, supply and return air ducts, the heating and cooling coils on the heat exchanger, grilles, diffusers, fan housing and motor, condensate drip pans and the entire air handling housing.

If the unit is not properly operated and maintained correctly, the components can become full of debris, dust and pollen. If there is any moisture present in the system, the potential for mold increases. Spores from the mold growth can release into the living space of your home and become dangerous.

Allergic reactions can occur as well as other medical conditions if people are exposed to them. When a professional service comes out to clean the system, make sure they clean the entire system and all components. If the system is contaminated and parts of it are not cleaned, it can result in a re-contamination in the entire system. Consequently, the entire process is wasted.

The methods used in duct cleaning vary, although some industry associations connected with air duct cleaning have established some standards. In most cases, the service provider uses special tools to remove debris and dirt from the ducts and then vacuums them out using a strong vacuum cleaner. The service company might propose using chemical biocides to the inside of the duct system and its components. This is used to kill any microbiological contaminants that might be in the system.

Some will suggest chemical treatments or sealants to cover the inside areas of the air ducts and system to prevent the growth of mold. These should only be applied once the system has been cleaned out entirely and there are no signs of debris and dust in the system.
