Do I Need Air Duct Cleaning?

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , .

Air duct cleaning refers to the cleaning of several heating and cooling system mechanisms of forced air structures. This includes the supply and return air ducts and registers, the heating and cooling coils, the grills, drip pans, and so much more that conduct the flow of air in your home. These components must be appropriately installed, maintained and managed in order for the air system to be free of dust particles, pollen and other contaminates. If moisture is present, there is also a potential for mold. So, what are the benefits of air duct cleaning?

Benefits of cleaning air ducts

There are several benefits. Cleaning your air ducts may help eliminate offensive odors. If you notice that your home doesn’t quite smell as fresh as it used to, chances are you need to have that looked at. Air duct cleaning removes contaminates and debris that have settled in your home through the ducts. It can also restore peak energy efficiency. If the air in your home is flowing more freely, you may use your air conditioning less (in the summer months) and heating less (in the winter). This could save you quite a bit of money on the long run. It can also extend the life of your HVAC system and components. Cleaner air ducts can also reduce the potential for mold growth, which can benefit those with mold allergies and asthma. Even those who have an allergic reaction to dust will benefit from the cleaning.

Knowing if and when you should have your air ducts cleaned

Air duct cleaning is not always necessary and should be done only if the ducts and HVAC units are contaminated. Some reasons to have your air ducts cleaned are:

  • If your home has recently been renovated or remodeled, especially if there was asbestos, or lead paint removal or if the renovation created a large amount of dust (sealing off air ducts during renovation should prevent this from happening).
  • If your home was infested with animals who are living or nesting in your ducts
  • If there is the presence of mold
  • If a family member is suffering from an unexplained allergy
  • If the property has sustained fire or water damage
  • If you are moving into a new home and the seller has no records of previous cleaning or maintenance

Hiring a professional air duct cleaning company

While HVAC cleaning isn’t always top of mind, if you haven’t had it cleaned in several years or have experienced any of the above issues, by all means, have them looked at by a professional. Make sure the professional you choose cleans all components. Failure to do so could result in recontamination of the system.

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.
