Frequently Asked Questions
Question:Why should I have my air ducts cleaned?
Answer: It has been proven by the EPA that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Home and office air filters usually only capture 10% of the pollutants, meaning 90% of your indoor air is still polluted. The indoor pollution can contain dust, pollen, mold, and animal dander among other things. As dust collects on your furniture and floors, it is also collecting within your air ducts and HVAC system. These pollutants will build up over time and be recirculated through the air, creating an environment to grow mold and bacteria.
Question:Can mold grow in an air duct system? What happens if it does?
Answer: Given the right circumstances, mold can grow and reproduce. If it has a stable temperature and a food source, mold can quickly become a problem. The food source for mold is usually the dust and pollutants that come through your air filter. Combined with the moisture and heat from your furnace or HVAC system, mold could have a good place to grow.
Live mold will contain spores which can cause both allergic and asthmatic reactions for anyone breathing the air. Mold commonly affects about 10% of the population, but over time, mold can also create toxins to set off short-term allergic reactions. Exposure to mold in the long-term has been shown to cause a permanent chemical sensitivity to common elements in the environment.
Question:Can a dirty HVAC system increase my energy costs?
Answer: Your energy costs can increase depending on where the buildup is and how long it has been going on. If the control components of the system have been contaminated, the system may have to work harder in order to heat or cool your home or office, running up your energy bill.
Question:What parts of the HVAC system need to be cleaned?
Answer: Within an air system, there are 3 components that must be cleaned: the supply and return grills, the interior of the supply and return bents, and the air handler within the air conditioning unit or the furnace. All of the components have to be cleaned to keep the whole system running. If one component is missed, it will contaminate the two that have been cleaned.
Question:How often do my air ducts need to be cleaned?
Answer: Air ducts usually need to be cleaned once every two years, but could need to be cleaned more often if you have pets or young children in your home.
Question:How is the heating duct system cleaned?
Answer: The cleaning process starts with an inspection to see the state of your system and the type of service you will need. The grills of the vents will be cleaned. Our team will then put a host in to create a high pressure air to push all of the pollutants out of the duct line. We will capture the debris and contaminates in a vacuum tank. The technicians will then clean your return air outlet and sanitize and deodorize your whole system.
Question:How long will it take to clean the air ducts?
Answer: Depending on the size of your system, a duct cleaning can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and potentially longer if it has been a long time since they have been cleaned out.
