What You Should Know About Air Duct Cleaning

Air Duct Cleaning is a service that thoroughly removes the dust, mold, and allergens that build up in your home or commercial building’s ventilation system. Keeping your ducts clean is essential for anyone with asthma, allergies, or auto-immune conditions as it helps to ensure that these pollutants don’t circulate throughout the house and exacerbate symptoms.

Dirty ducts also contribute to poor indoor air quality which can lead to irritated eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. In severe cases, dirty ducts can even contribute to respiratory problems including pneumonia and sinus infections.

In addition, over time, lint and other materials can accumulate in your ductwork and can ignite a fire putting you and your family at risk of serious injury or death. It is recommended that you have your ductwork cleaned regularly to reduce the likelihood of fires from these dangerous contaminants.

Before the technician arrives, it’s a good idea to tidy up and clear all the vents so they can easily access them. The technician will begin by establishing negative pressure inside the ductwork by closing all supply registers. This will help the vacuum to capture all of the dirt and debris from your ductwork. They will then begin the cleaning process by using rotating brushes and compressed agitation air whipping tools to dislodge any settled dirt. This is done on both the supply and return side of your ductwork.

Once the ducts are cleaned, the technician will seal each one of the vent openings and then attach the vacuum collection device’s large hose to the air handler which is usually located in the garage or attic. They will then start the vacuuming process by going through each vent, room by room. Once the ductwork is clean, it will be sanitized and deodorized using a combination of disinfectants and specialized chemicals.

When it comes to Air Duct Cleaning NJ, you want to be sure that the company you choose is properly trained and certified.

Air duct cleaning is an affordable and worthwhile investment to improve your health and comfort.
