Top Reasons to Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned
When I talk to people about HVAC systems they often ask - should I get my household air ducts cleaned? There are many reasons to have air ducts cleaned and in addition to looking at the reasons, you need to make sure you're working with a reputable company with experienced service staff.
1.) Allergies - Some people have specific allergies to dust and special attention needs to be given to indoor air quality, such as frequent furnace filter replacement and duct cleaning. Duct cleaning will remove any build up that has accumulated over the years in your duct work giving you a fresh clean air transfer system.
2.) Odours - pet smells and pet hair can build up in the duct work and recirculated while the furnace fan is running. I read recently about a homeowner who bought an older home and could get rid of the doggie smell left over from the previous owner's pet. Cleaning the air ducts got rid of the dog hair they had been sweeping up and the odour was eliminated.
3.) Renovations - If you've had any significant renovation work done, drywall, asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, additions, you may need to have your air ducts cleaned to remove any construction debris.
4.) Animal Infestations - rodents and other small animals can nest inside the HVAC system. We often find dead rodents, animal droppings and nesting materials. Getting your air ducts cleaned is necessary to remove them and stop air blowing over the animal debris and into your house.
Georgian Duct Cleaning uses the latest in custom built, truck mounted and portable duct cleaning technology to thoroughly clean your home and commercial heating and cooling air duct system. Our uniformed, certified technicians attach the powerful vacuum via an 8-inch hose to your air ducts. Our vacuums pull between 7,500 -12,500 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM).
How Does it Work?
The vacuum is connected to the duct work on each of the main duct plenums; this puts the entire system under vacuum. All registers and grills are sealed. Various agitation tools are fed through your ducts from each register and return grill. These high-pressure air tools and whips agitate inside the duct work. As they thrash around, they brush and air sweep all surfaces. The multiple tentacles dislodge all contaminants. As the contaminants are loosened they are pulled out of the air ducts by the powerful vacuum.
The main runs are cleaned using our exclusive Ventri Clean system. Re-useable access points are sealed with a sheet metal plate, airtight gasket and screws. The technicians also clean the furnace fan, fan housing and accessible areas of the air conditioning coils.
An optional herbal-based sanitizer is fogged through the system to kill any lingering odours, molds or fungi.
A professional residential duct cleaning takes about two hours or more depending on the size of the house. Upon completion, a certificate of cleaning is applied to the duct-work.
