Dust and other dirty air particles circulate through the air and HVAC system in your Bonita Springs, Florida, home multiple times a day. Dust will eventually collect in your air ducts and can even cause blockages. Keep reading to learn about HVAC system duct cleaning, including what to expect during a visit and the benefits of having your air ducts professionally cleaned.
Perform an Inspection
The first part of a duct cleaning visit is inspecting your home’s air ducts. A proper inspection will detect blockages in the duct work and locate all the air vents throughout your home. Then, if everything is in order, the technician will put down drop cloths to maintain a clean work space and bring in a high-powered vacuum and cleaning brushes.
Vacuum Dust and Debris
After the inspection, the technician will take off the grilles to the air registers and begin cleaning out your air ducts. The process involves using appropriately sized cleaning brushes to dislodge any dust buildup and using the high-powered vacuum to immediately remove the debris from each section of ductwork. It may take a few hours to complete a duct cleaning, depending on how many air registers are in your home. After finishing the duct-cleaning process, the technician will clean the air register grilles before reinstalling them.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning
One of the main benefits of a proper duct cleaning is improved indoor air quality. The careful and thorough removal of dust buildup and debris in your ductwork means that less dust will continue to circulate through your home’s air. Clean and clear air ducts also improve your HVAC system’s airflow, which thereby improves system efficiency and keeps energy costs low.
