Professional Duct Cleaning in Shreveport
While annual preventive maintenance for HVAC systems is extremely beneficial to the system’s overall health and efficacy, you may be overlooking a very important part: your air ducts. Dirty ductwork can contribute to poor indoor air quality, which can have seriously harmful effects on you and your family members. Fortunately, our HVAC technicians at Pioneer Comfort Systems 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 their ductwork cleaned. You might wonder if it’s actually possible for airborne pollutants to gather in your duct system and affect your indoor air quality, or maybe you don’t wonder about it all. Unfortunately, it’s a very real and likely possibility that pollutants are present in your ductwork, especially if it’s never been cleaned before. Because air ducts act as a conduit for heated and cooled air, things like household dust, pet dander, and other airborne contaminants in air ducts adheres to the surfaces within your system and circulates them throughout your home. Overall, the dirt and grime accumulating in your air ducts poses a real threat to you and your family’s (or employees and customers) safety.
When To Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned
Now that you know why it’s important to have your air ducts cleaned regularly, you’re probably curious as to how often you should have your air duct system cleaned out. The answer is it simply depends. For example, if you suspect mold growth in any of your heating and cooling components, you should hire professional duct cleaning services as soon as possible. A mold problem in your home or business can create much more problems than just poor air quality. The same goes for if you have or have recently had an insect or rodent infestation. These elements can create a breeding ground for bacteria and disease. A proper cleaning out of your duct system can remove these harmful contaminants and prevent further health concerns that may be associated with them.
Even if you haven’t experienced these specific problems, it is still incredibly important that you routinely obtain duct cleaning services. Our experts suggest having your air ducts professionally cleaned every 3-5 years to keep the pathways that the air travels through in your home or business clean, healthy, and breathable.
Benefits of Cleaning Ducts
Aside from the many health benefits that come with clean air ducts, there are a number of other benefits that our routine duct cleaning service can provide. For example, a clean duct system can help you save energy that would otherwise need to be used to keep your HVAC unit performing at the right pace and temperature. When a system has visible evidence of dust and other contaminants collecting within it, these obstructions can seriously affect its overall function and cost you tons of money in energy costs.
In addition to improved energy efficiency and health maintenance, cleaning out your air duct system can also increase the lifespan of your air conditioning and heating units. The dirtier your system, the more it is susceptible to wear, tear, and deterioration. It is similar to how the regular cleaning and maintenance of your car can keep it in good working order for much longer than if you were to neglect it entirely.
What We’ll Do
At Pioneer Comfort Systems, we conduct our air duct cleaning service via a thorough three-step process. This includes the inspection, vacuuming, and sanitizing of your duct system.
When you hire Pioneer Comfort Systems for your air duct cleaning needs, the first thing we do is find all the vents in your living space or commercial business and get an idea of the way your air ducts are laid out. We want to make sure we don’t miss any outlets or airways.
Next, we’ll perform a visual inspection of 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
- Duct surfaces 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.
The cleaning process starts with a good vacuuming out of your duct work. We need to effectively remove dust, pollen, pet dander, dirt, and other debris inside of your ductwork, which we do by vacuuming. However, contaminants can get crusty, hard, or otherwise adhere to the inside of your air ducts. In that case, we’ll loosen up that stubborn buildup by scrubbing your ducts from the inside out with heavy-duty brushes. Once that’s done, all the contaminants can be vacuumed up.
Most air duct cleaning companies will stop there. However, as efficient and dedicated 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 pick up any remaining dirt hiding in the cracks or crevices of your air duct system.
For us, duct cleaning isn’t finished with brushing and vacuuming. Though it may be unpleasant to think about, the truth is that there may still be plenty of bacteria lingering within your HVAC equipment. As previously mentioned, this can lead to serious health problems if not properly dealt with, as your A/C can spread them throughout the house when it turns on.
That’s why we use advanced duct cleaning technology and antimicrobial cleaning products to make sure those threats are terminated. What’s more, by using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved chemicals as specified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, we’re also looking out for the environment without compromising our thoroughness.
