6 Tasks You Should Expect From Your Air Duct Cleaning Company

When was the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? The EPA recommends cleaning them every few years, especially if you notice dust and debris in the ducts, have recently renovated a portion of your home, have bought a new home, have a rodent/insect infestation, or have a problem with biological growth.

Airborne particles can be released from dirty ductwork as it conditions the air you breathe. If you allow dirt and debris to remain in ducts indefinitely, they can contribute to poor indoor air quality, and impact asthma, allergies, and other respiratory ailments.

If you have a dirty duct problem, and you look to hire a quality air duct cleaning company, what should you expect from the company?

A duct cleaning service provider should:

Look for a NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) certified company to clean your ducts- this helps ensure standard practices are followed.

A duct cleaning service provider should:

Use the correct HEPA system and brushes designed for your type of ducts.

Remove all supply and return registers to clean and disinfect grills. All holes will be plugged during the cleaning process except the one duct run being cleaned.

Both supply and return plenums should be cleaned.

Seal system during cleaning process so no dust or dirt is return to the home being cleaned- the vacuum system does the cleaning under negative static pressure, capturing all dust particulates.

All duct access doors re-sealed after cleaning is performed.

Furnace vacuumed out, including blower wheel.

Evaporator coil should be assessed and cleaned as needed.

NADCA registry can confirm if a company has been certified, protect yourself and your home from poor workmanship.
