A Few Things You Need to Know About Air Duct Cleaning

There are quite a few reasons why you need to have the air ducts in your home or office cleaned. It is important to improve the indoor air quality so that allergies and illness are kept at bay. Here are a few frequently asked questions about air duct cleaning. Call EnviroPlus Duct Cleaning Ltd. for professional and reliable air duct cleaning services.

Q. Why should I have my ductwork cleaned?

A. Because they are dirty.

  • Do you notice dust on your furniture shortly after cleaning?

  • Do you notice musty or stale odours when the furnace or air conditioner runs?

  • Does it seem like there is not enough airflow coming from your vents?

  • Does anyone in the house have allergies?

Q. How often should I have my ductwork cleaned?

A. Typically every three to five years; however, this depends on the individual circumstances.

Reasons to consider more frequent cleaning would include:

  • Residents with allergies or asthma

  • Smokers in the household

  • Hair and dander from pets

  • Water or smoke contamination to the home

  • After home renovations or remodelling

  • Prior to the occupancy of a newly constructed home (construction debris)

  • Purchasing an existing home

Q. Will you get a lot of dust in my house during the duct cleaning process?

A. No. Our high-powered vacuum trucks create a negative air pressure, removing all dust and debris directly outside to the truck.

Q. Should I clean just the ductwork?

A. Actually the entire HVAC system should be cleaned. By cleaning all components of the system you can reduce the risk of re-contamination. Air Quality Specialists follow standards set by NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) to ensure that the complete system is cleaned.

Q. Can I run my woodstove/pellet stove while you are doing the duct cleaning?

A. No. We advise you not to turn on your woodstove or pellet stove (this also applies if you have a wood or oil combo furnace), until the air duct cleaning is completed. This is because the suction creates a negative air pressure inside your house.

Q. What are some of the benefits of having my ductwork professionally cleaned?

A. Having the air ducts cleaned can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your home or office. Once the ducts are cleaned of debris, you should notice:

  • Increased air flow

  • Improved indoor air quality

  • Reduced allergy triggers

  • Reduced frequency of house cleaning and dusting
