Air Duct Cleaning
Your home’s ventilation is critical in maintaining indoor air quality. By providing regular maintenance you can improve the air quality in your home along with the life expectancy of the Heating and Air Conditioning Equipment. Air duct cleaning is an important part of maintaining your home’s HVAC system.
Air duct cleaning can also help improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). Did you know that the air inside your home is probably more polluted than the air outside? According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, pollutant concentrations can be 2 to 5 times higher indoors. Various sources within your home contribute to pollutants.
Likely Pollutant Sources Affecting Indoor Air Quality
- Volatile organic compounds found in paints and cleaning agents
- Chemical off-gassing from items made of pressed wood
- Biological agents like mold
- Byproducts from combustion, such as smoke and soot
When addressing indoor air quality issues in your home, Lightspeed Restoration experts pay close attention to the air ducts since they are central in spreading pollutants from source areas. Particulate matter and biological agents such as mold may also accumulate within the ventilation system leading to recirculation within the house. Our air duct cleaning services remove pollutants accumulating in your ventilation system to help improve the air quality inside your home. A cleaner system runs more efficiently, too, which means that you may save on energy costs.
Reliable Air Duct Cleaning Approaches that Improve IAQ
On average, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends air duct cleaning once every 3 to 5 years. If you and your family have noticed signs of poor indoor air quality such as worsening allergies, musty smells, or weaker airflow, these may be indications that it is time for your ducts to be cleaned.
Our Lightspeed Restoration crews help determine whether cleaning is necessary to improve air quality by inspecting the interior sections of the ductwork. We use powerful vacuums to provide sufficient negative pressure on the supply and return sections of the system, collecting the debris loosened during the cleaning phase and keeping it out of your home. We also have flexible rods and unique rotating brushes that help physically dislodge deposits and mold colonies from the ducts.
