Air Duct Cleaning
Improve your home's air quality and protect your family with air duct cleaning services from Quality Clean.
According our experienced technicians here at Quality Clean, it’s a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned every 5-7 years.
However, there are a number of factors that may be cause for more frequent cleanings. If your home has 1 or more furry pets, has had construction or renovations done, or recently dealt with flooding as a result of a leaky pipe or storm, your vents may have additional particulates that need to be cleaned out ASAP. The only way to know for sure is to get an estimate from trusted professionals at Quality Clean.
When a family member comes down with a cold or the flu, the exhaled bacteria can make its way into a home’s ventilation system. Surface cleaning gets rid of the germs on your home’s surfaces, but how do you disinfect what you can’t see?
Every home has a natural, acceptable amount of mold and mildew, but over time the spores can attach to organic matter in your home’s air ducts. Hiding in the vents, mold and mildew have the perfect environment to proliferate. Because of this, residential air ducts are a hotbed of mold and mildew. Having your air ducts cleaned periodically can help win the fight against mold and mildew, and drastically reduce the chances of a mold or mildew outbreak in your home.
Where there's dust, there are dust mites. And where there are dust mites, there are itchy, red eyes, sneezing fits, and other allergic reactions. Dusting inside your home helps, but 50% of your home’s dust resides in the air ducts, so having them cleaned regularly is a great way to cut down on airborne dust, dust mites, and dust mite waste, which is what causes allergic reactions.
A home's air ducts can hide all kinds of airborne particulates. If your home has ever been renovated, your air ducts may be hiding remnants of sawdust and other construction materials like fiberglass or chemical residues from paint fumes.
For homes with furry pets, pet hair can be a major problem. Deposits of animal hair get sucked into the returns in the duct system and build up over time. Sometimes these hairballs can affect HVAC efficiency, and can even clog or damage air movers, blowers, and fans.
Most homeowners know, sometimes unwelcome critters find their way into duct work and turn your HVAC system into their own little winter getaway. Not only do these pests bring dirt and bacteria along with them, but they also leave waste behind, which can cause foul household odors and can even cause allergic reactions or sickness.
