FAQs are a great checklist for all the how’s and why’s on air duct cleaning. Come check out this great FAQ on air duct cleaning we’ve put together for you.
Q: Why is it important to clean your air ducts?
A: All kinds of microscopic particles accumulate in your air ducts: bacteria, dust, dust mites, mold, and dander just to name a few. Cleaning your air ducts of harmful contaminants means not just breathing easier, but healthier too.
Q: How do air ducts get cleaned?
A: In the old days people used to spray harmful chemicals into their air ducts. Problem solved. Truth is, their problems were just beginning. Today, with all we know about hazardous toxins, it is recommended to scrub your air ducts with special brushes, then suck out the debris with a special vacuum. What would be the point anyway of blowing all the particles back into your house once you’ve just cleaned them?
Q: Can I just clean my air ducts myself?
A: It’s always a good idea to save money, but a bad idea when the job should be done by a professional. Maybe you should ask yourself:
The answer to these questions is No. Better let a professional do the job and do the job right.
Q: Is there a chance air duct cleaning can damage my A/C or furnace?
A: Not a chance. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite. Debris in your air ducts, no matter how microscopic, accumulates on your coils and makes your system worker harder than it has to. This means a shorter lifespan for both you’re A/C and your furnace. We have all the tools and the know-how to get the job done right the first time.
Q: My house is new. There’s no way I need to have my air ducts cleaned, right?
A: You’d think so, but the answer is a resounding No. Dry wall dust and other materials used when building your home mean your air ducts could be dirty already. Better safe than sorry, just have them checked out.
Q: Do clean air ducts mean less dust in my home or office?
A: Absolutely. The average home circulates air 5-7 times a day. If there is dust and dirt in your air ducts, it’s going to end up in your home.
Q: Does air duct cleaning help with my allergies?
A: If your home or office is breathing cleaner, then you’re breathing cleaner. Clean air ducts are a good idea for everyone, but especially for those places where there are children, the elderly, and those with allergies or asthma.
Q: Do clean air ducts help lower my electric bill?
A: Yes they do. A cleaner system means a more efficient system, which leads to lower electric bills.
