Residential Air Duct Cleaning

How important is duct cleaning? Did you know that there is often more air pollution inside your home than there is outside it? With the rise of allergies, most people are now aware that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased visibility. That’s why duct cleaning is vital to maintaining a healthy home environment, especially for children.

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems. These include the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), the fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

Consider having your ducts cleaned if you have:

  • A newly constructed home.
  • An existing house that has been remodeled or was under construction
  • Purchased a home and don’t know if the ducts have ever been cleaned
  • Lived in your home for more than 10 years and have never had the ducts cleaned

Do you have an Indoor Air Pollution problem?

  • Do you have an air circulating system that utilizes a standard fiberglass filter?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Are there smokers in the house?
  • Does anyone in our house suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems?
  • Do you regularly clean excessive dust accumulations from your household furniture?
  • Do you experience headaches, nausea, burning sensations in the nose, throat, or eyes when inside the home?
  • Do you have dust trails or discoloration coming out of your air duct registers?
  • When you last changed your furnace filter, did you see dust and dirt inside the filter housing?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may have Indoor Air Pollution.

What to Expect From an Air Duct Cleaning Service Provider

If you choose to have your ducts cleaned, ServiceMaster Cleaning & Restoration by Clean in a Wink will:

  • Open access ports or doors to allow the entire system to be cleaned and inspected.
  • Use vacuum equipment that exhausts particles outside the home, or we may use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming equipment if the vacuum exhausts inside the home.
  • Protect carpet and household furnishings during cleaning.
  • Use well-controlled brushing of duct surfaces in conjunction with contact vacuum cleaning to dislodge dust and other particles.
  • Use only soft-bristled brushes for fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass. Flex duct can also be cleaned using soft-bristled brushes or an air whip connected to an air compressor.
  • Remove, clean, and reinstall all registers and vents.
  • Take care to protect the duct work, including sealing and re-insulating any access holes the service provider may have made or used so they are airtight.

Did you know?

  • Dirty, restricted air ducts drastically increase utility costs.
  • ServiceMaster Cleaning & Restoration by Clean in a Wink technicians are trained to clean all types of duct work, even ‘flex duct’ and fiber-board ducts.
