What Is Air Duct Cleaning?

An air duct cleaning includes cleaning the registers, vents, and ducts of the HVAC system in your home. Even with an air filter, HVAC systems tend to pull in dirt, dust, pet dander, and other debris and allergens into their system. While some of this debris will get caught in the filter, a lot of it ends up in your vents. In fact, you’ve probably cleaned your registers on more than one occasion, wiping away dust and other build up that was being moved around by your HVAC system. Over time, that dirt and dust builds up on the inside of your vents as well. This can decrease the quality of the air in your home and put more stress on your HVAC system. An air duct cleaning removes all of that dirt and debris from the areas you can see, as well as the areas you can’t see.

Can I Clean My Own Air Ducts?

Cleaning your air ducts requires special tools, such as a high-powered vacuum and rotary brushes. Additionally, to do it correctly, it requires a bit of skill and knowledge that the average homeowner may not possess. At Climate Mechanic, we highly recommend hiring professionals to handle your air duct cleaning to ensure the job gets done properly and safely.

The Benefits of Professional Air Duct Cleanings

When you run your air conditioning or heat, the air in your home is being circulated through the vents of your HVAC system. This means that any dust and debris that is in the vents may be getting blown into the air in your home that you are breathing in. Having your air ducts cleaned professionally helps to improve your indoor air quality and remove allergens from the air. Additionally, this dirt and debris being blown around has to land somewhere if it doesn’t get breathed in. So, if you have dirty vents, small particles could be landing on your furniture, bedding, countertops, and more.

Additionally, having your air ducts cleaned can help to remove odors from your air, improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, and extend the life of your HVAC system and air filters.
