HVAC Duct Cleaning 101: How Duct Cleaning Can Impact Your Health

How HVAC Duct Cleaning Can Impact Your Health

Maintaining excellent indoor air quality is a growing concern for homeowners. We have been cleaning every surface and using filters for many purposes to get us through a global crisis and improving indoor air quality is a vital part of protecting our families moving forward. You are now diligent about vacuuming, cleaning, and changing your HVAC air filter. How long has it been since your HVAC ducts were cleaned? If you can’t remember, it has probably been too long.

When a heating or cooling cycle ends, the airborne particles carried in the air that remains in the ductwork are pulled down and out by gravity and a static electricity charge. Unless they are removed, the dust, pollen, and dander can be picked up by later heating or cooling cycles and contribute to poor air quality.

The HVAC Duct Cleaning Process

Contractors installed two types of ducts in your home; supply ducts and return ducts.

The process of cleaning ductwork includes using a strong vacuum system to pull the dust and debris from both supplies and return ducts. Small holes may be made at strategic locations to access hard-to-reach areas; the contractor will restore the seal to the ductwork to ensure energy efficiency. After the heating or cooling cycle has been completed, the air filter will be replaced. (Check the air filter frequently for the first few days following cleaning.)

What are the benefits of HVAC Duct Cleaning?

While the dust remains inside the ductwork, it can still cause problems throughout the home. Once it is removed, the dust is gone forever. Removing this layer of pollutants helps maintain your home in several ways.

Cleaning ductwork properly requires specialized equipment and training to perform properly. Like any professional service, it will cost. The cost is based on the size of your home and the number of ducts (both supply and return) that will need to be cleaned. It will take some time, so an appointment is required when technicians will access every room in your home for a brief time.
