Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do I need to have my air ducts cleaned?
A: According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. The benefits of a freshly cleaned air duct sytem include:
- Cleaner, fresher and healthier air inside your home or office
- Home and office furnishings will stay cleaner longer
- Mechanical units will perform more efficiently when coils and blowers are cleaned which means energy and money savings for you.
Q: Will your equipment damage my air ducts?
A: Absolutely not. While our equipment is designed to be aggressive at removing debris from your air system, it is also gentle enough so that it does not damage your air ducts.
Q: How will you clean my air ducts?
A: We use a process called “Negative Air Cleaning” or the “Push-Pull Method.” We use a very large hose that is connected to your duct system, which turns your duct work into a vacuum, then we snake an “agitator” inside the duct system to dislodge the dust and debris inside the ducts and collect it in one place.
Q: Is the process messy?
A: Absolutely not. Our procedures are designed to protect your home and furnishings from dust and dirt. We place plastic dust covers over your vents, which prevents dust from escaping our equipment. Our competitors usually skip this important detail. All of our vacuum equipment is HEPA-filtered to 99.97%, so the dirt stays in the machine and out of your home. We always leave your home cleaner then when we arrived.
Q: How long does it take?
A: It typically takes 90 minutes per air system. (residential customers)
Q: How often should my air ducts be cleaned?
A: It really depends on how often you change your filters. It is recommended to have your home’s air system cleaned every 2 years. For commercial customers, we recommend a thorough cleaning every year.
Q: Can I be at home while the work is being completed?
A: Yes. Our specialized dust covers and HEPA-filtered machines prevent any debris in your air system from entering the home environment, so you can be home while the work is performed.
