Residential Air Duct Cleaning

Improve Your Air Quality

Air duct systems can accumulate harmful contaminants over time. Contaminants like dust, pollen, mite feces, dead skin cells and pet dander. These factors are only made worse by our climate in the Pacific Northwest, allowing mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria to thrive. These contaminates and allergens can heighten or cause allergic and respiratory issues. It’s important to keep your HVAC (Heating and Cooling System) clean and free of these contaminates to maintain your air quality in your home.

You Save Time

There’s no stopping the borage of dust and debris that enters your home on a daily basis. You dust and vacuum your home on a weekly basis but when was the last time you cleaned your HVAC system? Dust and debris enters your HVAC system from outside and through intake vents inside your home. It is then re-circulated back into your home every time you use your HVAC system. Air duct cleaning can reduce the amount of dust blown into your house.

You Save Money

Having your air ducts clean can save you money in two ways. A properly cleaned and maintained system will reduce your energy costs on a monthly basis. In addition regular maintenance will extend the life of your HVAC system saving you from costly repairs. HVAC systems are becoming increasingly more complicated and regular maintenance helps it run at optimal levels.

    […] Air duct cleaning is happening every day in neighborhoods all over Portland and Vancouver. This short story should help with what to expect when scheduling your duct cleaning service. The vent cleaning in an 1800-2200 sq ft home takes two technicians three to four hours, it can be done by one tech but it would take longer. Using a Hepa filtered negative air machine is the EPA’s preferred method for duct cleaning. After separating each side of the HVAC system and attaching the negative air machine to one side either supply or return, the techs should then seal every vent in the home and starting with the duct as far away from the system as possible navigate air whips from each register in the home all the way back to the furnace. The rest of the work is done in and around the furnace itself and back from the return and supply plenums. The right duct cleaning companies will show you each step of the process and should be able to show you what comes from the ductwork and they should never add fees to the the original service. This said, there are no $99 or funnier yet $59 whole house duct cleaning specials, this is impossible for a company to maintain, there is just too much work involved in a full service. There are resources available to research the guys you can trust. You may check Angie’s List if you’re a member, if not, there is the Better Business Bureau or reviews on Yelp and Google+! The service is awesome and should be done once every 3-5 years. Good luck to all! […]
