FAQS

Why clean your air ducts?

 

Your HVAC system and airducts should be cleaned for the same reason you clean your home. Most homeowners keep a very clean home and can not believe what is found in their HVAC systems.

 

The air you breathe circulates through the dirt, debris and contaminates in the air ducts.

 

A five year study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concluded that indoor air pollutant levels exceed outdoor levels by 200-500%.

Research by the EPA and Louisiana State University (LSU) showed that removal of air duct debris can improve the air flow of HVAC systems by as much as 20 percent.

 

What are the benefits of duct cleaning?

 

Reduce Allergens by 84%

Reduce contaminates such as dust, anmimal dander and biological contaminants

Lower Energy Bills

Extend the life of your HVAC system

 

How much time is required to clean a residential duct system?

 

Most homes can be properly cleaned in three to fours hours. The time may vary depending on the size of the home, accessibility and type of system.

 

What are Sanitizers and Why Would They Need to be Used?

 

Sanitizers are anti-microbial chemicals applied to the interior surface of the air duct and are designed to control biological contamination. Before any sanitizers are used, the system should be thoroughly cleaned. These sanitizers should only be applied with the customer's approval. In addition, they should be registered with the EPA for use in HVAC systems.

 

What is NADCA?

National Air Duct Cleaners Association members sign a Code of Ethics stating they will protect the consumer and follow NADCA standards for cleaning to the best of their ability. All NADCA members must have a certified Air System Cleaning specialist on staff. Passing the NADCA certification exam demonstrates extensive knowledge of HVAC design and cleaning methods. For more information, visit the NADCA website.

 

How much does duct cleaning cost?

 

The EPA states that residential cleaning duct cleaning can range in cost from $450 to $1000 per system.

 

Will you make a dust storm in my house?

No. Your system is put under a vacuum or negative pressure during the entire cleaning process, so that contaminants can not get airborne. Our technicians also will sweep or vacuum around any area in which they worked to ensure your house is as clean as it was when they arrived. Actually your house will be cleaner since you are breathing cleaner air.

 

Do you have to cut holes into my ductwork?

Yes, but not always. In some cases we can access the main ducting through the HVAC system. If we can’t we cut an 8 inch hole in the main trunk for access. After cleaning we seal the hole using a 10x10 piece of sheet metal, zip screw it in place, and then seal the edges to ensure there is no leakage. We also at times have to put 1 inch holes in the main trunk for cleaning, but again these are sealed using a 1 inch neoprene washer that snaps in place. All insulation will remain in tact.

 

Will your price change once you arrive to my home?

No. If we quote you a price over the phone and you give us accurate information, there is no reason the price should change. However, if a gross miscalculation has been done on the part of the homeowner, we will discuss with the homeowner how our pricing works and correct the error.
