Air Duct Cleaning FAQs

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from homeowners and business owners alike in the Raleigh, North Carolina area about the purpose and benefits of our professional air duct cleaning service.

What is Involved?
A professional will use a push-pull system under high-velocity negative pressure to drive particles such as dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander, and other pollutants to the equipment’s attached high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. The purpose of air duct cleaning is to remove all traces of dirt and debris effectively and efficiently from your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit’s various components. It can promote a healthy, allergen-free, comfortable living and working environment.

How Long Does a Session Take?
The amount of time air duct cleaning takes depends on several factors. That includes whether the HVAC unit is in a residence, single- or multi-family, or a commercial office building. Additional considerations include the property’s exact square footage – important since larger homes may have more vents than smaller ones – and the extent of the contamination. The cleaning professional will provide you with an accurate time estimate before beginning work on your system.

What Advantages are Associated with Cleaning?
One of the most significant potential benefits of this type of cleaning is improved indoor air quality (IAQ). According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes,” and inadequate ventilation can increase these levels. This service can mitigate the risk of poor ventilation by cleaning all components of your HVAC unit. It may also save you money on heating and cooling costs.

How Often Should Air Duct Cleaning Be Done?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends having your air ducts cleaned under specific circumstances. That includes the presence of substantial visible mold growth, ducts infested with rodents or insects, or when they are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris that particles are frequently released into the home via your system’s supply registers. A good indication of the latter is if the dust settles on your furniture immediately after you have finished cleaning.
