The best way to know if your cleaning was effective is through improved performance of your HVAC system, ideally. You can have before-and-after pictures taken of the ducts (make sure they are of the intake ducts - the ducts that return air into your room), motor and coils. Another tip is smell – sniff the ducts before and after the work is done. Outside of noticeably improved performance, smell and visual evidence are your best indicators.
The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:
With your air system and ventilation ducts in a consistent cleaned state, you and those in your household can be in much healthier or at least lessen the signs experienced when the indoor air system was filthy and polluted. In addition to enhancing health associated signs, great indoor air quality in the house can cause much better breathing for much deeper and undisturbed sleep. According to some physicians, enhanced undisturbed sleep can result in a much healthier life in general. While in many cases bad indoor air quality can be connected to asthma.
These are business who are more thinking about getting your cash, through deceptive ads or mailers than really doing the work appropriately and enhancing your indoor air. The really even worse thing you can do is to employ a business that might really develop more of an indoor air issue for you and your household due to incorrect cleaning or usage of inferior duct cleaning vacuums without any more vacuum power than a big Wet/Dry vacuum with a turning brush connected at the end of the hose, or make use of a who is not effectively accredited or accredited to clean air systems. Be specifically suspicious of business promoting the low one cost duct cleaning company, it’s like offering one cost to paint the outside of your house whether it be 1 story or numerous stories high.
"This a very professional company that came the next day after being contacted late in the day prior. The two guys that came to the door that did the work were well dressed and very courteous. They cleaned my diver vent and it works perfectly. I have their literature and will be calling them when I m ready for duct cleaning. Nice equipment too! Thanks for the good work. Nice not to have scroungy guys showing up at the door. "
