Improve the Air Quality in Your Home with Air Duct Cleaning

Modern homes are built as airtight as possible to keep heating and cooling costs to a minimum. However, this airtight construction can lead to air quality problems inside when stale air gets trapped and recycled. Heating and air systems often act as a collection source for a variety of outside contaminants such as pollen, allergens, and mold that can lead to health problems like asthma and allergies. This leads to air quality inside that is worse than air quality outside.

Improving the quality of air inside your home starts with cleaning out your air ducts. Our trained staff will come in and evaluate your entire duct work system. We will recommend making any needed repairs then give you an estimate of what it will take to clean the ducts thoroughly.

All of our work meets or beats industry quality standards. Our staff uses the latest equipment and technology to remove contaminants from the ductwork and safely evacuate it from your home.

Dust Mites Live and Breed in Your Air Ducts

Let’s say you live in a typical 6-room home in suburbia Oklahoma. Did you know that you and your family produce about 40 pounds of dust, dirt and allergens that get stuck in your ductwork every year? That figure alone is eye opening to the potential pollutants in the air circulating around you.

Do you know what is worse? There could be over 25 million dust mites living in that 40 pounds of dust, dirt and allergens.

Dust mites trigger allergic reactions in many people. The reaction can include coughing, sneezing, runny nose, wheezing and difficulty breathing. Dust mites love warm, humid places like ductwork where their diet of bacteria and fungi thrive.A good air duct cleaning will remove almost all of these little microscopic bugs, leaving your home a safer place to breathe.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Modern HVAC systems require a free flow of air to run efficiently. When dust builds up in the air ducts, it can actually lower the HVAC’s efficiency and lead to higher energy costs over time.

Think of air duct cleaning as a long-term investment in your home’s energy efficiency as well as in your family’s health. A thorough cleaning will give you better air to breathe and a longer life for your HVAC system.

Common Questions About Duct Cleaning

We get a lot of questions about our cleaning service for air ducts. Here are some of the more common ones.

Q: How long does it take to clean the air ducts?

A: The exact time spent will depend on the layout of the home, how accessible the duct work is, and the number of workers required. The ducts in most three-bedroom homes take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.

Q: How is the cleaning done?

A: The industry standard that we use is known as Source Removal. We place the entire airduct system under negative pressure using a powerful vacuum. Then, we use tools to dislodge the contaminants from the insides of the ductwork. The vacuum removes this loosened material, evacuating it into special containers for disposal.

Q: Why use a certified member of NADCA to clean my ducts?

A: NADCA stands for the National Air Duct Cleaners Associations. To belong to this group, a company must meet stringent guidelines and employ certified Air Cleaning Specialists. This ensures that you get the job done to industry standards by trained professionals.

Q: Do you clean dryer vents?

A: Yes! We can clean your dryer vent to reduce your risk of fire and to improve your dryer’s efficiency. We recommend cleaning your dryer vent once every year. If you’ve started to notice that it takes longer to dry your clothes, there is a burning smell when doing laundry, or if your hood flap doesn’t open properly, it’s time to clean your vent.
