Air duct and system cleaning are essential for a healthy indoor environment. Neglect to the routine care of your HVAC system can increase the risk of illness for you and your family. Often I’ll go into a home and see the air vents are loaded with construction debris like fiberglass, gypsum dust, silicates and other harmful particulates from the construction work 15 years ago. We recommend following the EPA guidance to air duct cleaning https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/should-you-have-air-ducts-your-home-cleaned
Signs that you may have contaminated air ducts include:
When selecting an air duct cleaning company check the better business bureau for certifications and recent reviews. We have found the market price to be artificially low to clean your ducts and system properly. If the deal looks too good to be true stay away. Understand who is doing the work, how long they have been doing it and what assurances and equipment they have to clean your HVAC properly. Ask to see any photo evidence of contamination before and after cleaning.
