Three Common Questions on Air Duct Cleaning

Written by chrischambers on . Posted in , .

Air duct cleaning is a subject that many families are discussing this summer, especially with the rising temperatures and the increase in allergens within their home systems. Many homeowners are discovering that their air duct systems are no longer performing to peak capacity and they’re receiving less value for their investment in energy. To help respond to this common problem, it’s important to analyze air duct cleaning services and what these services might bring to the home. In this post, the team here at Soil Away examines three common questions on air duct cleaning.

1. How Often Should the Average Air Duct System Be Cleaned?

The answer to this question is widely debated within the industry, but the predominant answer is two-to-four years depending on the conditions within the environment. Elements that might lead homeowners to considering having their air duct system cleaned more frequently might include: having smokers in the household, owning pets that shed hair, recent home renovations and residents with allergies. Cleaning an air duct system can help resolve challenges with airborne contaminants and provide a clean environment that the entire family can enjoy.

2. What is the Best Criteria for Selecting an Air Duct Cleaning Company?

It’s important to consider the process in selecting air duct cleaning companies before reviewing the marketplace. There are thousands of companies offering the service in the U.S. and only some of these companies can be trusted to offer the highest value service. Factors to consider when making the decision on an air duct cleaning company include the following: certification with NACDA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association), access to high caliber equipment, licensing, and experience. Experience is especially critical when choosing an air duct cleaning company. Homeowners must consider whether the firm has the requisite experience to complete a comprehensive cleaning job on their property. In many cases a background of at least 5 years’ experience in the industry is required.

3. Will Air Duct Cleaning Help Improve the Efficiency of my Air Ducts?

This is one of the first questions many homeowners will consider when reviewing the decision to undergo air duct cleaning. And research by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has shown that air duct cleaning can allow systems to run more efficiency. In addition, the research shows that the air duct cleaning process can also ensure greater lifetime performance from air systems. This means homeowners can consolidate their month-to-month costs while significantly improving the value of their home equipment.

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.
