Dirt in Your Air Ducts

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the average six-room home collects nearly 40 lbs. of dirt and allergens in its air ducts every year! In addition to causing considerable air quality problems, this contamination can also significantly increase energy costs. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency suggests that a typical homeowner can save as much as 20% on energy bills if they have the coils of their air ducts cleaned regularly.

How Often Should You Clean Your Ducts?

We recommend that you have professionals clean your air ducts every 3-5 years. If any residents suffer from allergies, you should clean the ducts as soon as possible and consider a more frequent cleaning schedule.

Do Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning?

  • Is anyone in your home having respiratory problems including asthma or shortness of breath?
  • 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?
  • Is there a musty or stale odor when your furnace runs?
  • 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?
  • Was your home remodeled recently?

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 Buffalo NY

Our powerful process features the AiroTech3 Triple HEPA Filtration negative air system to make sure that allergens and dust from the cleaning process get safely contained in our vacuum, not thrown back into the air. In fact, our system filters greater than 99.9%

  1. We check your system to ensure it is properly working.
  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. Once the system is running and building up negative pressure, we seal off each register with plastic sheets or foam blocks, dramatically increasing air velocity.
  6. Starting from the register furthest from the furnace, we clean each branch line with nylon duct brushes, cable driven brushes, or forward air blast assemblies. This process breaks apart debris to be vacuumed out by our air duct cleaner.. Once all branch lines have been cleaned, we finish by cleaning out the main trunk line.
  7. With the supply side thoroughly cleaned, we move on to the return side, following the same procedures 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. Once the entire system has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, we reseal all access holes with metal patches and reinstall all registers.
