Are your allergies worse now than in past years? Is your energy bill climbing? The reason may be dirty ducts. Over time, dirt, pollen, and other debris accumulate inside your HVAC system, affecting its efficiency. They may not catch as much dust and pollutants as before and need to run longer to cool your house. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution: air duct cleaning.
The professionals here at Pioneer Comfort Systems are happy to serve residents of the Shreveport, LA, area with thoroughness and friendliness. We don’t skimp on getting your A/C into shape. When we clean out a system, we ensure quality work in each step.
Duct Cleaning Services
While annual preventive maintenance is extremely helpful, you may be overlooking a very important part of this system: your air ducts. Dirty ductwork can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Our technicians are certified in proper, professional duct cleaning services and follow guidelines set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).
Many homeowners wonder if it’s really necessary to have ductwork cleaned. You might wonder if it’s really possible for pollutants to gather in your duct system. Unfortunately, it’s a very real possibility that some pollutants are present in your ductwork, especially if it’s never been cleaned. Because ducts act as a conduit for heated and cooled air, they can pick up pollutants and circulate them throughout your home. That’s why we suggest having air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years to keep the pathways your home or business’s air travels through clean and healthy.
The first thing we do is find all the vents and get an idea of the way your air ducts are laid out. We want to make sure we don’t miss any outlets.
Next, we inspect the system. During duct inspections, we’re on the lookout for the following :
• Damaged areas that need repair
• Components that need replacing due to age or damage
• Areas that may need extra attention due to dirt buildup
Once we’ve got the 411 on the state of your air ducts, we can start the cleaning process.
We need to get all the built up pollen, pet dander, dust, dirt, and pollutants out of your ductwork, which we do by vacuuming. However, contaminants can get crusty, hard, or otherwise adhere to the inside of ducts. We loosen up stubborn buildup by scrubbing your ductwork from the inside out with heavy-duty brushes. Once that’s done, all the contaminants can be vacuumed up.
As professional air duct cleaners, we’re not satisfied with just getting the superficial dirt. That’s why after we’ve vacuumed, we do a deep clean with a rotor brush to get dirt hiding in any cracks or crevices.
Duct cleaning isn’t finished with brushing and vacuuming. Though it may be unpleasant to think about, the truth is that there may be bacteria lingering in your HVAC system. These can lead to health problems if not properly dealt with, as your A/C may spread them throughout the house when it turns on.
We use antimicrobial cleaning products to make sure those threats are terminated, and by using EPA-approved chemicals as specified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, we’re also looking out for the environment without compromising thoroughness.
