Furnace and Duct Cleaning FAQ

 

Q: What are some of the benefits of having my duct work professionally cleaned?

Having the air ducts cleaned can significantly improve the health of the air in your home or office. Once the ducts are clean of debris, you should notice:

  • Increased air flow
  • Even temperatures from room to room
  • Lower utility bills
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Reduced allergy triggers
  • Reduced frequency of dust accumulation

 

Q: Are there any health benefits that come from cleaning my ductwork?

Yes, professionally cleaned and deodorized ductwork can reduce mold, fungi, pollen, bacteria, and dust particles. These contaminants are known to trigger allergies, asthma and other health problems. By reducing the contaminants in the ductwork, you are allowing the air that circulates throughout your home to be cleaner, and therefore healthier.

 

Q: How often should I have my ductwork cleaned?

NADCA, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, recommends you have your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. Home Owners may want to consider more frequent cleanings under these listed circumstances:

  • Residents with allergies or asthma
  • Smokers in the household
  • Pet dander and hair
  • Water/ smoke contamination to the home
  • After home renovations or remodeling
  • Prior to the occupancy of a newly constructed home (construction debris)
  • Purchasing an previously lived in home
  • New community with ongoing construction in the neighborhood

 

Q: Will you get a lot of dust in my house during the air duct cleaning process?

No, our high-powered vacuum trucks create a negative air pressure throughout the system, removing all dust and debris directly outside to the truck.

 

Q: Will it reduce odors in my home?

Contaminants, bacteria and fungus can build up inside of the ductwork and produce foul odors. While some homeowners will not notice the odors, because they are immune to them, visitors will recognize them right away.

 

Q: How long will the cleaning process take?

The process varies depending on home size and number of furnaces. An average single furnace home will generally take about 1.5 – 2 hours to complete.
