Is Professional Duct Cleaning Necessary?
Not only does air duct cleaning improve the indoor air quality in your home, it can also help your HVAC system working at peak efficiency. Dirty motors, coils, fans, and equipment housing can slow down your systems and cause unnecessary strain - increasing the frequency you'll need to pay for repair.
Duct cleaning can prevent indoor air contamination from:
Remove Mold From Ductwork With Our Duct Decontamination
Because air ducts are prime places for mold spores, bacteria, and other contaminants to grow, a simple duct cleaning is, unfortunately, never enough. Even with a thorough cleaning conducted by professional technicians, the air is still not clean enough to be free of any hazards to your health.
When we perform duct decontamination services, we first use high-tech video cameras to inspect the ducts and determine the location of any mold colonies, debris, or dirt that needs to be removed. We then use HEPA filtration vacuums that provide a more thorough cleaning and decontamination of your ducts. Our goal is to provide you with healthy indoor air.
The Importance of Duct Sanitization
When our Houston air duct specialists arrive at your home, their goal is to return your air to its cleanest state. Although we use specialized HEPA vacuums and cleaning systems, they sometimes cannot pick up every airborne contaminant within your ducts. Additionally, if you’ve recently dealt with any flooding, natural disasters, or you’ve had a significant rodent problem, your ducts might be contaminated and require special sanitization services.
When we sanitize your air ducts, we apply an antimicrobial chemical that kills any bacteria or airborne contaminants, removes any odors, and minimizes the chance of recontamination. Unlike a simple spray that you’d use on your kitchen or bathroom counter, the chemicals we use within your ducts must be done carefully and only when needed to preserve the material your ducts are made from.
At Lone Star Pro Services, we recommend sanitization if:
- You’ve recently experienced water damage
- You have a pet
- You can’t seem to get rid of foul smells within your home or business
- Someone in your family has asthma, allergies, or a weak immune system that is easily triggered by mold growth, bacteria, viruses, mildew, or other fungi.
It’s important to note that sanitization is not a stand-alone service. We pair this with our Houston air duct cleaning services, to ensure your ducts are clean and your indoor air crisp.
How Often Should I Clean My Air Ducts?
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends air ducts be cleaned once every 3 to 5 years. The passageways transport air from your HVAC system and require regular maintenance to ensure you stay comfortable all year round.
Signs your air ducts need cleaning include:
- You find mold in the ducts
- Your home has more dust than normal
- You find rodents and pests in the ducts
- Your energy bill keeps rising
- Your home is either newly built or went through major renovation
