Regularly cleaning your air ducts improves indoor air quality and the lifespan of your ventilation system. Before attempting to clean your air ducts on your own, consider a qualified technician. Here are a few reasons to hire a professional for air duct cleaning:
Professionals have the machinery to confidently clean air ducts. Qualified technicians use high-performance air duct cleaning equipment and specialty tools that physically remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants to improve your ventilation system. Obtaining these tools is costly, and working without them is time-consuming.
There are many different techniques for cleaning air ducts, and experienced technicians are familiar with the effectiveness of various methods on your particular ventilation system. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association has standards for air duct cleaning that professionals will be familiar with.
Professionals have the knowledge to inspect your system for many difficulties with your ventilation and can help you avoid future problems. Asbestos, poor insulation, and faulty heating and air conditioning can be diagnosed at the same time the technician is cleaning your air ducts.
Once the cleaning has been complete, a visual examination of the clean system offers proof that the ventilation system is now clean. You can ask the technicians about their post-cleaning consumer checklist to verify that all portions of the system have been properly cleaned.
