How long does it take to have my ductwork cleaned?
In general, a typical single-family system will take around two to four hours with at least a two-man crew. With an older home and those where pets live, the process may take a little longer while newer homes, condos, or townhouses will usually take somewhat less time for cleaning. Contact our team and we will be happy to give you an estimate on cleaning the air ducts in your home.
How often should you have your air ducts cleaned?
In most cases, our experts suggest that the air ducts in your home should be cleaned ever five to eight years on average. But when children or pets are around, or when someone in the family has respiratory issues, you might decide to have the process done more often. In most cases, when your filtration system operates efficiently, there is less cleaning needed. For more information, give our team a call today.
Which are the most commonly found HVAC air duct contaminants?
Dust takes the number one spot. Homes in areas with higher dust levels in the air and those where pets live usually have more dust in the air ducts. Pollen is also commonly found. The particles are very small and can easily stick to surfaces. Tiny debris particles can also be found inside the air duct system.
