Residential Air Duct Cleaning

How will an air duct cleaning company be selected?

Via daily cleaning of the heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) system, there are health benefits for all residents.You may want to check out Fay’s Affordable Carpet Cleaning – Rockford carpet cleaning for more.

Mold, fungi, bacteria and a number of pollutants are collected by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that reduce the quality of air residents and visitors who breathe. A polluted air duct contributes to the low quality of indoor air and affects the health of people in the household.

To get the best indoor air quality, the aim of residential air duct cleaning is to eliminate these pollutants from the HVAC system of a house.

Using a specialized, strong vacuum that places the air duct / ventilation system under negative pressure is the most efficient way to clean an air duct and/or ventilation system. As the vacuum pulls air into the system, machines are inserted into the ducts to dislodge pollutants and debris from the surfaces of the interior, bringing the contaminants/debris through the vacuum from the air ducts and ventilation systems of the house.

The set of vacuums alone does not clean the HVAC machine. Brushes, air whips, “skipper balls” and other devices that clean the surfaces inside the air duct system with pollutants and debris and propel contaminants and debris into the vacuum collection unit (s).

To control microbial contamination, anti-microbial chemical sanitizers are applied to the internal surface of the air ducts… but until sanitizers are used the device should be thoroughly washed. For use in HVAC systems, all anti-microbial chemicals used must be EPA licensed. Ask the Material Protection Data Sheet of the chemical to see (MSDS). Contact the EPA at 1-800-438-4318 if you’re still worried. For use on porous device surfaces – such as fiberglass surfaces – there are no EPA-registered anti-microbial products.

You want to ensure that the air duct cleaning company uses safe, reliable, EPA-approved materials that are safe for humans, animals and the environment while sanitizing air ducts. Across the entire ventilation system, an atomizer fogs the sanitizing substance.

Allergic individuals, children and elderly people are particularly vulnerable to microbes that trigger respiratory problems such as bacteria, mildew, fungal algae and dust mites that need a highly effective sanitizer to remove odor-causing microorganisms as well as allergy, mildew and bacterial growth-related pollutants. Make sure that the sanitizer with the lowest toxicity level is rated by the EPA as a Category IV product. Air duct sanitization means toxicity and protection precautions that assess and ensure that no adverse effects from the products are dermal (skin), ocular (eyes), inhalation (breathing) or ingestion (swallowing).
