Our powerful vacuum system will first be connected to the air duct near the furnace. Commercial grade products and equipment will then be used to dislodge the contaminants and debris in the air ducts. The vacuum will pull the contaminants out of the ducts and through the filtration system, returning clean air back into your home or business. Once the system is cleaned, all access holes are resealed, returning the duct system to a like new, clean condition. Cleansing verification will be done immediately after the HVAC system cleaning process has been performed.
Recommended Cleaning Schedule:
Most homes and businesses require air duct cleaning every three to five years. Use springtime and the onset of allergy season as a reminder to check for dirty supply and return vent covers. This, and dark lines on the walls by vents, are signs that air ducts need to be cleaned. According to the standards provided by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), it is recommended that you have your HVAC ductwork inspected every two years.
Maintain your clean air ducts by performing regular vacuuming and replacing the air filters per manufacturer recommendation.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies have found that indoor air may be two to five times—and occasionally more than 100 times—more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollutants can cause health problems. Considering that the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, improving indoor air quality is vital.*
Indoor air pollutants are pulled into HVAC systems and re-circulated an average of 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this recirculation causes a build-up of pollutants in the duct work.**
Is it expensive?
The cost of the service varies. It depends on factors such as where you live or work, how dirty your system is, how easy it is for the contractor to access the ducts, and what material is used in the construction of the ducts. Our expertise, training, and satisfaction guarantee are built into the price of service.
How long will it take?
The amount of time it takes to clean a residential HVAC system varies depending on the complexity of the system. Once a skilled and trained technician arrives, they should be able to give you an estimate of how long it will take. For standard purposes, we ask for at least 3-5 hours to get the job done right and to your satisfaction.
Will the cleaning be disruptive to my family or employees?
The professionals at ServiceMaster Restore can schedule a time that is most convenient for you and when most of the household or employees are not present. Depending on the magnitude of the job, we should have your house or business back in normal operation in a matter of hours.
