The air you breathe in your home needs to be clean and pure. Without regular HVAC maintenance, the air in your home may be up to 70% worse than the air outdoors. Poor quality air quality puts you at risk of developing health conditions or worsening existing conditions like asthma and allergies. There’s an easy way to prevent this and it starts with air duct cleaning. Let’s go over some HVAC maintenance FAQs!
HVAC Maintenance FAQs
How Long Does HVAC Cleaning Take?
A typical HVAC cleaning session takes anywhere from three to six hours. Cleaning times vary based on the size of the home and the number of vents. Before you schedule this cleaning service, we will provide you with a better idea of how long your service will take. You will then be able to prepare for your appointment and have a better feel for how long the process will take.
What Happens During the Cleaning Process?
When you hire the professionals at Dryer Ducks to perform your HVAC cleaning and maintenance, expect a professional, succinct process. Our professional technicians will utilize an agitation cleaning method to thoroughly clean your vents during the treatment. The technicians will move through the home, addressing each HVAC vent and cold air return, and carefully cleaning each one.
Gentle nylon agitation brushes will spin to contact every square inch of the surface area to dislodge and remove dust, dirt, and debris. These nylon brushes are attached to high-powered HEPA-filtered vacuums. As the brushes clean the vent and dislodge buildup, the vacuums simultaneously vacuum up that dirt. The vacuums are not truck-mounted, and the entire process is clean, efficient, and professional.
A Thorough and Professional Process
The technicians will also vacuum and hand-wipe each of the registers in your home to ensure that each is clean and dirt-free. Our technicians use state-of-the-art HEPA filtered vacuums to ensure that your ducts get cleaned. The system is designed to prevent harmful particulates from entering your home’s air during the cleaning process.
How Often Should I Schedule Cleanings?
Typically, HVCA vents require thorough, professional cleaning every two to four years. This timeframe may vary based on internal and external factors, including whether or not you own pets, if you are planning any construction or remodeling work on your home’s interior or exterior, the level of outdoor pollutants surrounding your home, and whether you suffer from asthma or allergies.
One of our professionals will evaluate your home and propose a cleaning schedule so that you can maintain clean HVAC vents and pure air year-round. It is important to do this regardless of your home’s internal or external environment.
If you can’t remember if or when your HVAC vents were last cleaned, it’s time to schedule a maintenance appointment. Then, once the process is over, you can feel confident knowing that your home’s air quality is clean and your system can work as efficiently as possible.
