AIR DUCT CLEANING

Dirty air ducts are one possible source for low air quality in your home, and yet this can easily be prevented by hiring a skilled AC technician to clean your ducts on a regular basis. As dust and dirt build up in your ducts, these particles can be transported into your home and the air you breathe when your AC is on. More harmful particles such as mold should be cleaned thoroughly by a qualified technician to ensure that there is no mold in the less visible or accessible areas of your duct work. Also, through regular professional duct cleaning you can actually improve the efficiency of your AC – saving the environment as well as your pocket!

According to the national Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the average six-room house collects 40 pounds of dirt, dust and allergens in its air ducts each year. That’s a big problem, considering that 40,000 dust mites can thrive in only one ounce of dust. Those dust mites contain a host of unhealthy bacteria, fungi and mold. The EPA estimates indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Even worse, the contaminated air circulates throughout your house every time the cooling system kicks on.

  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Sick Building Syndrome, and Building-Related Illness are emerging as critical health, environmental, and legal issues throughout the world.
  • Environmental Protection Agency studies show that indoor air may be as much as 100 times more polluted than the outside air.
  • Improperly cleaned and maintained ventilation systems allow microbes to breed. This leads to a host of serious medical problems including: asthma, allergies, skin rash, fatigue, tuberculosis, and legionnaire’s diseases.
  • The World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 3 buildings in America have sick building syndrome.
  • 50% of ALL ILLNESSES are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. American College of Allergists.

OUR ADVICE: DO NOT HIRE ANY COMPANY THAT USES A ROTARY BRUSH SYSTEM TO CLEAN THE DUCTS!! Brush systems are not only ineffective, they are potentially dangerous to the ducts themselves. Most of the ductwork in South Florida is duct board or flex duct. It is impossible to reach the entire run of each flex with a rotary brush system, not to mention the duct board portion (plenum, main trunk lines, and mixing boxes) are left untouched with this method. That is actually a good thing being that the last thing you want to do is brush fiberglass. If that is done the fiberglass particles will become airborne which can be harmful to anyone breathing the air in the home.

Watch for the following signs that an air duct cleaning is overdue:

  • Dirty supply and return vent covers.
  • Dark filtration lines on the walls, ceiling or carpet that surround the vents.
  • Excessive dust in the home.
  • New air handler or ductwork.
  • A recent remodel/construction project.
  • Water damage or flooding that occurred in the ductwork, which could cause sediment build-up in the system.
  • Air duct cleaning should be conducted every three years for a healthier home.
  • Your home’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is important, and having a clean, properly functioning heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system is vital to maintaining a clean healthy and comfortable living environment.
  • In addition, a newly cleaned air duct system runs more efficiently than a dirty one, resulting in lower utility bills and a cleaner, less dusty home.
  • Our air duct cleaners check for dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants that are pulled into your HVAC system every time the furnace or air conditioner runs. Over time, they build up inside your ductwork, making your air duct system a breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes, which are then re-circulated through your home, impacting the health and comfort of your family.
  • Those who suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, especially children and the elderly, are vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollution.
  • As a result, most health experts agree on the health benefits of proper, and regular, air duct cleaning.
