Air Duct Cleaning stops indoor air polution and goes hand in hand with Rat (rodent) Cleaning and Sanitation and Exclusion services.  It’s the important part of the job that minimizes the prospect of circulating contaminants from rat, mice and other home invaders, throughout the structure, that could cause serious health issues.
window-viewIndoor air should be as clean or cleaner than that of outdoors.  We spend a lot of time cleaning our homes and offices. Removing dust and dirt that accumulates on surfaces, sanitizing to make sure viruses and bacteria are eliminated, basically keeping our environment healthy.  This is what needs to be done to our seldom thought about or seen, Air Duct Systems.  Out of sight, out of mind.
HVAC ducts, weather, metal, fiberglass or wire coil and plastic, direct cooled or heated air through a house or other structure. They are a gathering place forair-duct-aluminium-87634_960_720 dust, dirt, dander and other allergens. ventilition-ductsCentral heating and air conditioning systems draw air in from outside to heat/cool and circulate that air through the structure easily drawing contaminants indoors.  When these same systems are surrounded with vermin or rodent debris, torn or old insultation and years of accumulated dust, dander and dirt, there is a good chance that these contaminants will find their way into the air ducts (through cracks or tears in the system) and into our lungs as we go about out daily lives.
Cleaning air ducts is not a do-it-yourself job.
 Residential vacuum cleaners and cleaning attachmencleaning-3309061_640ts aren’t powerful enough to do the job correctly, and a Do-It-Yourselfer, runs the risk of doing serious damage to ductwork.Professional air duct cleaners use commercial-grade vacuum systems with heavy duty hepa-filters and powered brushes to loosen and remove dirt and debris from a home’s HVAC system and ductwork without worsening the quality of the air inside the structure.
Professional Duct Cleaning corkys-air-duct-cleaning-technicianTechnicians are also trained to spot other problems with an HVAC system that the average home or building owner may not know to look for.
All in all, property owners, especially homeowners, don’t have the right tools or the cleaning expertise to do the job well. And most importantly, they don’t have the time to do a thorough job.
When should you clean ductwork?  (According to the EPA)

  1. After new construction or extensive remodeling.
  2. When ducts are infested with vermin (ex. rodents or insects)
  3. When ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris, or when particles are being released into the air from supply registers.

How often should ductwork be cleaned? (According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association)

  1. Every 3 to 5 years (or more often when an occupant has allergies or asthma)

Fact is, cleaning your air ducts and vents benefits health and aids the efficiency and longevity of a HVAC system.

    Air pollution also affects regional climate, which impacts on future water availability and ecosystem productivity. Black carbon is a particulate matter created through the burning of fossil fuels (such as diesel) and biomass.

      Thank you for bringing up the subject of air polution. Another
      perfect example why clean air systems are important.

    Air ducts often contain hazardous pollutants and microorganisms in addition to dust. Examples are pet dander, bacteria, pollen, rashes, mold spores and other toxins. People who have allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems are especially at risk for these airborne particles. Cleaning the airways regularly promotes healthy living.

    This is a very creative idea when it comes to cooling the air. Cooling the air using plastic bottles and without consuming any electricity is a great process that will play an important role in reducing our electric costs and maintaining the balance of the environment.
    I really appreciate the creativity job! Thanks for sharing the great Idea.
