31 Jul How Professionals Perform Duct Cleaning
Regular duct cleaning is an important service for your home. It prevents your air conditioning and heating systems from extra strain due to clogged ventilation channels, and it reduces major threats to your indoor air quality. Because modern homes have little outdoor air circulation, duct cleaning is one of the only effective ways to eliminate the large amount of dust, dirt, and other debris that will continue to circulate through a home with no way to escape.
Duct cleaning requires professionals: it isn’t a job you can take care of with a vacuum hose shoved through a few vents. When the time comes for regular duct cleaning (we recommend most homes have it done every two years, although some may need it more often), contact Mid-State Air Conditioning and Heating. Our Fairview, TN duct cleaning team will bring the best equipment and training to the job so that you have a healthy HVAC system and cleaner air.
The Professional Duct Cleaning Process
A thorough duct cleaning job takes a few hours and can usually be performed during an afternoon with minimal interference to your daily routines.
The technicians arrive at your house and first close up all the room registers to seal up the ventilation system. They then bring in a powerful vacuum system (large enough that it needs a few people to carry and operate) and take it to your air conditioner/heater cabinet. After shutting off the blower motor for the HVAC system, the technicians cut a hole in the main ventilation shaft that leads from the cabinet and attach and seal the large mouth of the vacuum onto it.
The vacuum now puts the entire ventilation system under “negative pressure.” This change in pressure will cause the contamination along the interior of the ducts to float away from the walls. Now that most of the dirt and dust in the ducts is loosened, the vacuum suction turns on and easily draws most of the contaminants into it. The technicians then remove the vacuum and replaced the cut section of the ducts, and re-open the registers.
The technicians will also perform local cleaning through the vents, using combinations of power vacuums and agitation equipment (such as rotary brushes) that reach inside the ducts and remove tougher areas of contamination. If necessary, the technicians will use deodorizers and sanitizers on the ductwork—but only the kind that will leave no chemical residue that can harm your air quality.
