Residential Duct Cleaning
Residential air ducts should be cleaned when the house is new, following renovations and then approximately every two or three years after that. Modern construction may leave a large amount of drywall dust, insulation, shavings and various food debris, often left by construction workers. The Technical Safety Standards Association (TSSA) now requires that air ducts be cleaned following construction, especially if the furnace was used during construction.
In a new home the building debris leaves a film of dust on hardwood floors and all furniture. This can leave your skin feeling dry and itchy and can cause your furnace to malfunction. This dry dust, draws moisture from the air providing a perfect breeding ground and nutrient source for bacteria and microbial contamination.
In older homes, the dust accumulates to significant, measurable levels, often several inches deep. The dust forms on all surfaces significantly reducing airflow through the system. This causes the furnace and air conditioner to work harder and longer to bring the house to the desired temperature. You may also notice that the furnace has become noisy… This may be caused by dust accumulating on the fan blades, throwing the fan out of balance.
