Both Total Health and Better Health magazines cite that "1 of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of the direct relationship to fungi and bacteria in the air duct system." Simply put: dirty ducts can make you sick. Really sick. The Department of Consumer Affairs adds that "children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air."
Dirt, debris, pollen, smoke, pet hair, dust and dust mites, even dead skin gets trapped deep inside your ducts. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Every time you turn on your system, these contaminants get blown into the air that you and your family breathe.
What about dust? Do you notice a layer of dust that seems to settle on your furniture right after turning your system on? That's a tell-tale sign of ducts desperately in need of cleaning. Most furnaces are only equipped with a throw-away style fiberglass filter. The American Society of Heating, Refridgeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) reports that "most commercially available fiberglass furnace filters are less than 7% efficient." This allows a tremendous amount of dust to settle into your duct work.
Our state-of-the-art equipment is truck mounted offering superior stability. We begin the duct cleaning process by attaching an 8" vacuum hose to your furnace. We attach this hose to both the supply and return air ducts. Then, we proceed to remove all floor and wall registers and cover them with a temporary magnetic plate. Covering the registers allows the high pressured air to flow through the hoses pushing out the dust and debris. During this process we add several attachments such as our whips and brushes. These attachments are able to knock and wipe accumulated dirt and debris from the interior walls sending it through to our vacuum where it is collected and removed. We repeat this process for each and every register cleaning them one at a time.
When finished with cleaning all the ductwork we continue our inspection to the furnace. There we check the furnace top-to-bottom.
