What Duct Cleaning Is and Why It’s Important
Dust is an unavoidable fact of life in any household, and an unfortunate byproduct of a forced-air system is that the dust is moved around the home. Maintaining a clean air filter is important because it limits how much dust gets into the HVAC system. But even with regular filter swaps, dust will get in, and some of that dust will settle in the ducts due to static pressure and accumulate over time. The problem with dust is that it’s a sponge that absorbs odors and pollutants and reemits them over time. With most dust in the home, you’re able to clean it and thus avoid the bad odors and reduced indoor air quality, but you can’t access your ducts without specialized equipment. That’s where our duct cleaning service comes in. It involves the use of a camera and a powerful vacuum system to find and remove all of that dust.
What You Can Expect From Duct Cleaning
When you schedule duct cleaning service from Oliver, a NATE-certified technician will arrive at your home with a state-of-the-art HEPA-AIRE vacuum system. This equipment not only includes a powerful vacuum that we can feed through your ductwork but a HEPA air filter that traps 99.97% of all particulates down to 0.3 microns in size thereby avoiding redistribution of the dust. Our team also employs an advanced camera system. We’ll use the camera to take before images and also to inspect your ductwork to ensure that it’s in good condition and there are no signs of HVAC system problems. Our technician will then clean the entire system including the supplies and returns. We’ll then take after images and show you those before and after photos so that you can see the work we performed and the condition of your ducts.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Dust is made up of dust mites, dead skin, hair, bacteria, soil particles, bug detritus, pollen, mold spores, and many other substances we’d all rather not think about. As dust builds up, it undermines your indoor air quality. Having your ducts cleaned and your air quality restored has many health benefits, including easier breathing, better sleep, and less severe asthma and allergy reactions. Your home will smell better. It will be less prone to mold and mildew, and duct cleaning service is also an opportunity to check the health of your ducts and correct small issues before they evolve into expensive problems.
Signs You Need Your HVAC Ducts Cleaned
The NADCA recommendation for the average household is scheduling duct cleaning service every three to five years, but the right frequency depends on your household. A couple with two children, a dog, and a cat will need their ducts cleaned more often than a couple who lives alone. You’ll eventually get a feel for how often to schedule the service. In the meantime, you can watch for the warning signs. These include your HVAC filter getting dirtier faster than usual and dust being more noticeable on your vents. Another sign is unusual odors. If you notice a musty or other unpleasant odor when the heat or air conditioning kicks on and then it fades, that likely means that you need the ducts cleaned.
Oliver recommends seasonal maintenance for your heating and cooling equipment, and we offer a maintenance plan that will keep your system on schedule and lower your costs. We can also include duct cleaning as part of your maintenance. While you certainly don’t need duct cleaning service every year, we can keep an eye on your ducts and take the guesswork out of scheduling cleaning.
