Does Air Duct Cleaning Deliver Results?
A quick search online will leave you pondering the benefits of having your air ducts cleaned. Is it worth it? Is it a scam? Will it benefit your home here in Atlanta?
If done properly, duct cleaning can’t hurt. But it’s not something that needs to be on your regular home maintenance list. Your ductwork may need to be cleaned if you have experienced:
Renovation – any significant home renovations can cause dust and debris to build up in your ventilation system, especially if there was asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or significant dust and debris from the process.
Animals – if you have any evidence of animal nesting or infestation in your ducts, you should have the animals removed and a thorough cleaning of the system.
Contaminants – if you have evidence of noticeable debris, odors, or other contaminants being released from the vents and into your home, the ducts and registered should all be cleaned thoroughly.
Biological growth – if you have evidence of water damage, mildew, or any form of biological growth, a thorough cleaning is necessary.
Illness – if anyone in your home has had an unexplained allergy-related illness, duct cleaning can help you decontaminate your home.
To avoid duct cleaning scams operated by some less-than-reputable companies, always ensure you choose a full-service heating and cooling company that understands the intricacies of the HVAC system. Use a NADCA certified company. Ask for references, look for certifications, and avoid gimmicks that promise “miracles” for a one-time low special fee. Don’t be fooled by a company that sets up shop for a quick buck. Choose a company that offers you full service, all the time.
