Air Duct Cleaning Services

Since spring is here, you may want to consider having your air ducts professionally cleaned as a part of your annual ‘spring cleaning’. If you have an older building structure you may want to consider freshening up your air-ducts. Or if your property has undergone a remodel recently, post-construction can leave everything covered in a blanket of dust. Installing any sort of materials where machine cutting is done on the premises, can leave sawdust or tile dust that spreads everywhere within the property, even if the cutting is done outside, construction dirt always manages to find its way in. Sanding or woodwork projects such as installation of new cabinets, moldings, baseboards, trim, wood floors, engineered wood flooring, laminate, or tile-work could leave dust and debris behind thus making cleanup may necessary.

If your property has experienced water damage due to a water leak that was ongoing and perhaps went undetected for a time, such as leaks coming from the air-conditioning unit or a roof leak, could allow for HVAC vents to acquire a build-up of contaminants and possibly even mold. We strongly recommend Duct Cleaning after a Mold Remediation project. Part of our restoration process during a fire or smoke cleaning might include a thorough Air Duct Cleaning since soot particles could have easily scattered inside the building's ductwork. We also highly recommend Duct Cleaning after addressing an infestation issue. A pest invasion in an attic, within the dwelling or in a crawlspace could be problematic as dust particles aerosolize. Beware of health dangers related to vermin, insects, rodents, or their droppings being present indoors.

Air Duct Cleaning can be a proactive approach to healthy indoor air quality issues. For offices where desks are directly under a building vent and sickness or allergies are an ongoing problem, schedule an inspection to determine if an issue can be discovered. Addressing any discovered issue and scheduling regular air-system cleaning as regular maintenance could aid in the improvement air quality.

Regularly change air filters

Frequently replacing air filters is a good way to keep dust, most allergens, and particles at bay. Most filters should be replaced every few months depending on how dusty your area is.

The EPA recommends air duct cleaning when the following issues are discovered:

  • Visible mold growth or painted area inside, where a previous tenant or maintenance person might have been trying to cover up an issue
  • Infestation of rodents, vermin or insects
  • Considerable deposits of clogging debris

Could Mold be an issue?
