One of the most important parts of air duct cleaning is the equipment that is used. The vacuum is what is drawing out the debris, dust, and dirt from you air ducts. Wouldn’t you want the best, most powerful vacuuming doing the job? When you are calling around to receive pricing and cleaning procedures, you may want to confirm the type of equipment the company has!
Portable equipment is much smaller in size. It may be easy to transport, but that equipment is brought into your home or business. A truck-mounted system is much larger in size and remains outside during the cleaning. What does this information tell you about which cleaning procedure is better? We will break it down for you!
These are a few reasons to choose a company using truck-mounted equipment. If you are interested in learning more and receiving a free quote, call our office today!
Do you know that a variety of your everyday household items are affecting your indoor air quality? Do you use air fresheners? Burn scented candles? Use cleaning products? These products create VOCs. What is that exactly? Volatile organic compounds. VOCs are gases from a variety of different solids and liquids. They usually contain fluorine, chlorine, bromine, benzene, formaldehyde, and toluene according to the EPA.
Now, do you know how these are affecting your overall health? It may just start off as a headache. It may be eye irritation, skin reaction, dizziness or many other symptoms. Long term, it may even lead to asthma or other health issues.
Helping rid your home of these harmful chemicals can improve your air quality. You can start with improving ventilation and researching what ingredients are in the products you use. Air duct cleaning is one more step you can take! According to NADCA, “the air in your home is typically pulled into the HVAC system and recirculated 5 to 7 times per day.” Having your air ducts cleaned can remove many pollutants hiding inside your ductwork.

After a long winter of spending time indoors and having your home sealed up, it is time to open up those windows and breath fresh air in! But, do you know what has been circulating throughout your ductwork all winter? Winter allows dirt, debris, and moisture to settle in your ductwork from continuous damp weather. Once this has settled, you may start to notice respiratory issues, allergies, and much more. So, are you thinking you need your air ducts cleaned now? We have some helpful signs that will help you decide!
Woah! A spike in your energy bill! – This may be from a clogged duct or possibly even a leak. Debris and dirt can block airways, making it more difficult for air to flow.
Dirt and debris build up – Everyday you create dust, dander, and dirt that is lingering in your ductwork. If you are starting to notice dust on furniture you just cleaned, it may be a sign to have your air ducts cleaned. You can also check your register vents to see if there is any visible build up.
Respiratory problems – Are you having allergies, asthma, or sinus issues? Excessive dirt and debris that is circulating through your air ducts just may be the problem. Your indoor air quality is highly impacted by your heating and cooling system.
Mold growth – Humidity will cause condensation, which may cause mold growth inside of your ductwork. Mold can be difficult to detect when it is hidden in your ductwork, but you may notice a musty odor. Call us to have your air ducts inspected for mold growth.
Rodent or insects – Are you noticing evidence of an insect or rodent infestation? They may be living in your air ducts. Breathing in contaminants like droppings may cause sickness and create poor indoor air quality.
