Utah Air Duct Cleaning
Why should you get your air ducts cleaned?
Answer: Because they get dirty!
The average 6 bedroom home produces 40 pounds of dust a year. It’s hard to notice that when you are constantly cleaning and scrubbing the surfaces that you can see. But do you ever wonder about those hidden places you can’t see? In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes through regular use, there are several other factors that can increase the need for air duct cleaning:
Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help to address. Recent studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that the air inside your home, in which air ducts have not been cleaned in over 5 years, can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air found in major industrial cities. This is a shocking statistic and one not to be taken lightly.
The entire system needs to be cleaned. Failure to clean all components of the system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus minimizing the benefits of cleaning. Just as you wouldn’t only clean half of your living room floor, you also would not want to clean only part of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. NADCA recommends cleaning the entire HVAC system, including the following components:
The standard for air duct cleaning has been set by the NADCA. There are two key components to proper HVAC cleaning: breaking contaminants loose, and collection of contaminants.
Properly cleaning HVAC systems requires removing the sources of contamination. Source removal begins with use of one or more agitation devices designed to loosen contaminants from the surfaces within the heating and air-conditioning system. Examples of agitation devices include brushes, air whips, and compressed air nozzles or “skipper balls.” Agitation can also be achieved through hand-brushing or contact vacuuming.
