Dirt in Your Air Ducts

The National Air Duct Association stated that the average six-room home can collect over 40 lbs. of allergens and dirt yearly. In addition to causing serious air quality issues this contamination also can increate your energy costs dramatically. In fact the Environmental Protection agency stated that the average homeowner could save 20% on energy bills if they have the coils of their air duct cleaned consistently.

How Often Should You Clean Your Ducts?

Our experts recommend that you have a professional clean your air ducts every 3-5 years. If anyone in your family suffers from allergies you should have them clean the ducts as soon as possible and contemplate a more regular cleaning schedule.

Do Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning?

  • Is there a musty or stale odor when your furnace runs?
  • Does anyone in the house suffer from mild to severe allergies? Do they get worse when either the furnace or air conditioning is running?
  • Does anyone in your home suffer from nasal congestion or headaches in the morning?
  • Do your furnace filters get dirty quickly after replacing them?
  • Was your home remodeled recently?
  • Is anyone in your home having respiratory problems including asthma or shortness of breath?
  • Do you have dogs or cats?
  • Do you ever notice excessive dust shortly after cleaning?
  • Does the air flow coming from the vents seem weak?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to schedule an air duct inspection.

Our Air Duct-Cleaning Process

Air Duct Cleaning Albany NY

The process we use features the AiroTech3 Triple HEPA Filtration negative air system to assure that all dust and allergens from the purifying process get safely contained in our vacuum, not mixed back into the air. Our process strains out more than 99.9% of pollutants.

  1. We examine your system to ensure it’s working properly.
  2. We wrap your furnace air filter in plastic and reinstall it to separate both the supply and return sides of the system.
  3. We cut 8” and 12” access holes into the main trunk line and install a zone bag. We then inflate the bag in the duct to assure a strong vacuum in preparation for debris removal.
  4. We attach our portable HEPA air duct cleaner to the duct and fire it up.
  5. After the system is running and building up negative pressure we then seal off each register with foam blocks or plastic sheets to intensely increase the air velocity.
  6. We start cleaning at the register furthest from the furnace. We clean each branch line with cable driven brushes, nylon duct brushes, and forward air blast assemblies. This process breaks apart debris to be vacuumed out by our air duct cleaner. Once all branch lines have been properly cleaned, we finish by cleaning the main trunk line.
  7. Once the supply side is properly cleaned, we move to the return side and follow the same procedure as above.
  8. Finally, we clean the A-coils and the blower.
  9. After all ducts are clean, we apply an EPA-registered air duct sanitizer, spraying it into each register with an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogger while the ducts are still under negative pressure.
  10. Following the cleaning and sanitization of the entire system, we then reseal all access holes with metal patches and reinstall all registers.
