The American Lung Associations yearly State of the Air report ranks California cities as having the worst air pollution in the nation. This air problem is not California’s alone. Many people all over the country are concerned about the air quality outside and even more so with the air they breathe daily while inside our homes and businesses. As polluted outside air makes its way inside, this contaminated air gets re-circulated through the air duct system five to seven times every day.
Have you noticed a significant amount of dust accumulating on shelves, lamp shades or the top of your refrigerator?
This accumulation occurs inside your air ducts as well. Once these airborne pollutants settle inside your ductwork, every time the system is turned on, these irritants are blown back into your home. Air duct cleaning may help remove these unseen contaminants which may be causing allergy flare ups and respiratory problems.
The HVAC Inspection, Maintenance and Restoration Association (NADCA), recommends having the supply and return air ducts inspected every two years and the air handling unit inspected every year. This inspection will determine how contaminated your air ducts are and the structural integrity of the duct system. Following the inspection, recommendations can be provided through a detailed scope of work.
Air Duct Cleaning
Air duct cleaning can provide many benefits to improving the quality of air in our homes. However, if the cleaning is not done properly, the air can become many more times contaminated than it originally was.
For air duct cleaning to be performed properly, several different mechanical agitation methods are used to remove particulate, debris, and surface contamination from the air duct system. These contaminants are then captured in a HEPA filtered vacuum collection system. This vacuum ensures that the contaminated materials removed from the HVAC system are contained, preventing cross-contamination during cleaning and when removed from the building.
The HVAC system is one of the most expensive pieces of equipment a homeowner has. Don’t accept anything less than exceptional results when it comes to having the air ducts in your home or business cleaned. A licensed and certified professional will be able to guide you through this painless and informative process.
