4 Reasons You Need Professional Air Duct Cleaning

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

You might need professional air duct cleaning and not even realize it. HVAC systems typically are out-of-sight and out-of-mind. As long as the heat is working in the winter and air conditioner in the summer, everyone is happy. Just set your desired temperature on the thermostat and enjoy the comfort of your home or office. But is that all there is? What about the system of ductwork circulating the air? This mechanical system runs below floors, through walls, and above ceilings. It is a hidden network of ducting that carries the air we breathe. So does this system require any maintenance or cleaning? Here are four reasons why you should consider professional air duct cleaning.

Top 4 Reasons for Having Your Air Ducts Cleaned


  1. Mold Growth

    – Visible mold growth in or around your HVAC air duct system should be a red flag. It is time to take action to avoid a potentially hazardous situation. To verify what you suspect is mold, the substances should be professionally tested. Mold issues with your air ducts are a real possibility especially if your HVAC system is located in the basement or attic. These areas are prone to high humidity and dampness; an environment in which mold can thrive. The combined effort of professional air duct cleaning along with removing the moisture source will drastically reduce the threat and potential hazards of mold.

  2. Vermin

    – You likely don’t want to think about it, but there is a good chance that rodents or insects have been traveling through your air ducts. These dark, secluded and sheltered areas make a perfect safe haven for certain critters. Many vermin carry unwanted bacteria that you just do not want spreading in your home or office. Periodic cleaning of the air duct system removes unwelcomed guests and the mess they leave behind.

  3. Excessive Dust and Debris

    – Over time dust and debris can build up in your HVAC system. These contaminants can clog areas of your system or even be released into the home through supply registers. Dust and debris can accumulate faster if you have pets or have gone through a home renovation. Routine cleaning will help with reducing accumulated dust and potentially improve the indoor air quality of the property.

  4. Efficiency

    – Everyone is very conscience about home efficiency, especially when it comes to their utilities. Cleaning your air ducts on a routine basis plays a part in maintaining a HVAC system’s efficiency. A smooth running HVAC system is all about having strong air flow. Air flow can be hindered if ducts, coils, fans and motors are inhibited by dirt and debris. Eliminate this issue with professional air duct cleaning.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
