What Do I Need To Do Before Setting Up An Appointment?
No special preparations required, make sure that Your furnace/heater/air handler is accessible, please check your vents and returns, we would need to access them also. If You have somebody in the house, who is allergic to dust, please arrange out-of-the-house time for this person. If You have a pet, who does not like guests in the house, please arrange temporary out-of-the house accommodation.
What Should I Expect After The Air Duct Cleaning?
Air Duct Cleaning will improve quality of the air in the house and it will reduce the amount of dust You see in the house every day.
Is Air Duct Cleaning Messy?
No, we respect Your house and want it to be clean. We always do our best to prevent the dust from coming into Your house. Although, sometimes it's impossible to avoid dust completely. We work with the dust in Your air duct system, and when we start to remove it, some dust gets into the air and then settles on the surfaces. So, in case You have plans to arrange maid services or house cleaning, we would recommend to do it after the air duct cleaning is done.
Can You Just Clean One or Two Vents?
No, when You have plans for the air duct cleaning, keep in mind that the entire air duct system should be cleaned. We can not skip any part, Your entire system is put under negative pressure, so leaving any vent or return without cleaning will make air duct cleaning useless. All the vent, returns and main trunk lines should be cleaned in one shot without interruption.
Can Air Duct Cleaning Help With The Airflow Through The Ductwork?
Yes, but partially. Sometimes we got calls from the customers who want to unblock the clogged vent. People assume that no air is coming out of the vent because it's clogged with dust. So, in most of these cases the vent just got loose or disconnected. It's very rare to see the vent which has been completely clogged with dust. In some cases, it might be clogged with some object, like toy or ball. Sometimes the vent can be really clogged with construction debris, but it's related to new construction houses or newly remodeled. You should not expect significant increase of air velocity in You ductwork after the air duct cleaning.
I Have Animal In My Ducts, Can You Help?
Unfortunately we are not able to help with it, You will need to call Exterminators, so they can safely remove the animal. Exterminators can help with the dead animals as well.
How Often Should I Clean My Air Duct System?
We usually recommend that the interval between cleanings should not exceed 3 years
Do You Do Air Duct Repairs Or Rerouting?
No, we do not offer these services, we strictly specialize in cleaning services.
Air Duct Contamination - What Is The Source?
All inside air was once outside air, so all of the dust, chemicals, pollen, insects and mold spores in the outside air can be pulled into the air system. People shed millions of tiny dead skin cells every hour. Cooking smoke, household insect sprays, personal care products are also a source of pollutants. Many construction materials, carpets, wood products and plastics give off pollutants as well. During construction or remodeling activities, many types of dust are produced and find their way into the duct work. If the duct components were stored outside prior to construction, they may have collected dust, rain water and even mold before they were installed in a system.
