Is your home dusty? Do you see dust build up on your furniture or floating in the air? One way to see how dust is in the air is to stand to the side as sun comes in through a door or window. Just look into the stream of light coming in and you should be able to see the larger dust particles.
Every house will have some dust floating around but if it looks like it is snowing, you may have a dust problem. There is a lot of reasons for dust build up in your home that may need to be addressed other than cleaning your air ducts, but air duct cleaning will help to lower the dust in your home which will help to improve your indoor air quality.
Our Air Duct Cleaning Process
There are many ways to clean air ducts and sometimes a combination of processes is needed to get them completely cleaned. But there is one way that is recommended the most: Negative air cleaning, also known as the push-pull cleaning system.
For this method, we hook up a very large HEPA filtered air duct cleaning machine close to your HVAC system. This system allows us to put the air duct system under negative pressure, keeping the dust in the duct system or in our HEPA filtered system during the cleaning process. Other systems can cause the air to become dustier after cleaning because the system is not closed up while it is being cleaned. With our negative air cleaning system, everything is closed up except the vent we are working on. This keeps the dust from coming out of other vents that are not being cleaned and focuses all the vacuum power into one area. [Read more…]
