A homeowner CANNOT effectively clean their own air ducts. . Unlike carpet or upholstery cleaning which you or your maid can do, air duct cleaning requires special equipment and professional training. Specially formulated and environmentally friendly solutions can be sprayed into your air ducts to kill mold, bacteria and eliminate odors.
Duct cleaning can help to keep dust particles out of your home’s air and off of your furniture and counters.
We use a very large vacuum system designed to put your air duct system under negative pressure. We close or seal each vent to maintain this pressure and prevent dust entry into the home. We then clean the interior of the ductwork with special tools that travel through the ductwork to dislodge the debris. Once airborne inside the ductwork, the debris is drawn into the vacuum system by the strong airflow created by the negative pressure. After cleaning the ductwork, we can sanitize or deodorize the system. One of the most overlooked parts of any home in Richmond or Midlothian, VA is the heating and cooling ductwork. It sure is easy to spot a soiled carpet or stained upholstery and have home cleaning or maid service deal with it. Out of sight, but always working for you, the home ductwork usually contains as much space as an average size room. When was the last time this “room” was cleaned?
The heating and cooling ductwork is a perfect breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Some health experts believe that approximately one in six people who suffer from allergies do so as a direct result of fungi and bacteria in the air duct system. Health considerations aside, there are other good reasons to have your air ducts cleaned, as you would your carpet or upholstery. Dust and dirt in the heating/cooling system is a primary cause of system breakdown and unscheduled service calls. A clean system is also more efficient.
