Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I clean my air ducts?
Dirty air ducts have been identified as a major source of indoor air pollution. Your air duct system is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, mold, mildew, fungi, and other health threatening organisms.
Will my house be less dusty?
YES !!! The inside of your duct work is the equivalent of an extra room in your home that never gets dusted or vacuumed. When the furnace or A/C fan turns on , dust from the duct work gets churned up and blown into the rooms of your home.
Will this help my allergies?
Perhaps. Most people are allergic to dust mite waste. Dust mites feed on debris found in duct work. Remove the debris and you remove their food. Also, by greatly reducing particulate debris in your ducts, there are less dust particles in the air to aggravate people with respiratory illnesses.
Will this hurt my furnace or air conditioner?
While making your homes air safer, duct cleaning can also reduce heating and cooling costs by allowing your system to operate more efficiently.
I live in a new home do I still need your service?
Absolutely!! Almost half of our work is done in homes that are less than 5 years old. During construction, the duct work is wide open and the air handler is running many times without a filter. During this time construction debris such as pieces of plaster, wood, tile, and insulation are literally swept into open duct work. These obstructions provide a place for dust to collect.
Isn't my new furnace clean?
It sure is. But remember the new fan is most likely more powerful than the old one. This tends to dislodge some of the dirt and dust that was stuck inside the original air duct system causing the indoor air quality to be worse than before.
Can you clean solid duct work and flex vents?
Many homes have both forms of duct work, we have tools for both sorts of duct work, so this needn't be a worry. We are able to remove debris that pools up in the ridges of the flex duct and to treat those areas if needed too!
