Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning

When you think about cleaning your home, the ductwork for your HVAC system might never come to mind.  When you consider all of the dust, dirt, and pet dander that you have vacuumed from your floors, you wonder how much has accumulated inside the ducts throughout your home. Most homeowners would be shocked to learn that about 40 pounds of dirt and dust are removed from many of the duct systems cleaned by Blue Ox Heating and Air.

How It All Works

The first step in professional duct cleaning is an inspection to ensure that the ducts are intact and safe to clean. Next, we attach a high-powered blower and a vacuum with a HEPA filter to your duct system. This ensures that all of the dust and debris we remove from your ductwork is vacuumed out of the house and leaves with us. Then we get to work with our specialized duct cleaning tools to get all the dust and dirt loose from the ductwork walls. Rest assured, all of that mess is going right out to our truck via the vacuum. The last task is to clean your vents before reinstalling them.

The Pros And Cons

The air quality inside your home can be up to five times more polluted than the outside air. Cleaning the ductwork in your home can significantly reduce the dust, dirt, and allergens in the air to increase the air quality. As that 40 plus pounds of grime builds up, it restricts the airflow throughout your home. This dirt could be to blame for some rooms in your home being warmer or cooler than others. When there are less dust and dirt in the ducts and being drawn into the HVAC equipment, it improves the unit’s energy efficiency. So you will save money each month and enjoy a longer life for your HVAC system.

The list of pros was relatively impressive. And they are all benefits that any homeowner would appreciate. In contrast, there is no downside to having your home’s ductwork cleaned. If you understand the value of a clean house, you also agree that there is no reason not to have your HVAC ducts professionally cleaned.

Own Often Should Ducts Be Cleaned?

There is no precise schedule for every home. Many environmental factors will help you answer this question. If the ducts have never been cleaned and your home is over five years old, it is time. After an initial cleaning, you will need to monitor your home’s dust level for an increase. Also, consider the level of dust in the outside air, if anyone smokes in your home, and if you have pets in the house. Your Blue Ox Heating And Air pro can also help you determine when it will be time for your next duct cleaning.
