Has your home been getting dusty, even though you clean it frequently? Is there a bad scent coming from the ventilation holes? Are you paying higher electricity bills due to the use of HVAC? Then what you need is an Air Duct Cleaning. As time passes, dust, insects, spider nets and debris gather up in the air duct tubes and vents, and can slowly build up and cause various issues throughout the home.
Most homeowners are unaware that cold air returns can be a large problem. It usually is the source of dust and the mites that live in them. We clean these thoroughly. Whether you suffer from seasonal allergies, sinus problems, or other respiratory issues, CPR24 Restoration duct services are the fastest way to reduce air pollutants. Even cigarette smoke, pet dander, and dust can be eliminated in a way that will make your heating and conditioning systems operate more efficiently.
How is the air duct cleaning done?
First, a visual inspection is needed in order to evaluate the damage and determine which part of the air duct needs more work. It is a step that you can also take yourself to assess the gravity of the situation. The plates covering the duct holes can be removed with a screwdriver and it will allow you to see what is inside the tubes. It is also a way for us to check for leaks in the duct system and repair them.
Air duct cleaning is done through the use of negative pressure. We use a powerful vacuum tube that we take through the tubing and suck the dust and debris out. Due to often heavy amounts of dust in Toronto, as the dust settles, oftentimes it gets stuck in the tubing, so we have to agitate the dust in order for a complete cleaning, which sometimes can take hours to finish.
The importance of air duct cleaning
If you or your family are suffering from allergies, and often have agitated lungs and throat, it could be a consequence of an unclean air duct. Debris in the air ducts can also lower the performance of heating or cooling, making it more difficult and expensive for you to regulate the temperature in your room. A dirty air duct can bring a multitude of diseases and infections. Also, along with the air duct, the heat exchangers, cooling coils, and fan motors and blades are cleaned as well, allowing for better temperature distribution.
