What Happens During Air Duct Cleaning
What actually happens during air duct cleaning will depend largely on the type of ducts you have. If you have the
traditional sheet metal ducts, duct cleaning is fairly simple. A blower door, similar to a large vacuum, is attached to one end of the ducts and the other vents are sealed. The blower door then sucks all debris out of the ducts. If you have a different kind of ductwork, though, things get a little more complicated.
Most homes nowadays have flex ducts, which have lots of little ridges for debris to get caught in. A blower door is not effective at removing all debris from these ducts. So a rotobrush is used instead. This is essentially a motorized brush, which is used to manually clean out the ducts to make sure that no debris is left in any of the crevices.
Why You Need Air Duct Cleaning
So, what is the point of air duct cleaning in the first place? Well, as mentioned above, your ducts have a pretty big impact on your indoor air quality. Airborne contaminants like dust, dirt, pollen, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria all tend to collect in the ducts. This is because you don’t have them cleaned on a regular basis, which allows a pretty sizable amount of contaminants to build up over time. When a forced air system is turned on, all of these contaminants are circulated around the house. Being exposed to a large dose of these contaminants gives you a greater chance of having allergy attacks or getting sick. This is why air duct cleaning is so important. It removes these contaminants from your home so that you can breathe easier and have a higher quality of life.
