Clean your heating ducts for healthy fresh air at home. To ensure your family’s health, only have your ductwork cleaned with a high pressure reverse-air-flow system. Our high pressure air flow system strips out all dust and debris. The heating ducts are put back to original condition, like new – from the furnace to each vent in every room.
The Reverse-airflow Cleaning Technique
With reverse-air-flow a high pressure pneumatic tool such as an air whip or air brush is inserted into the heating vents to blow back debris under pressure and remove it from your home. Using up to 250 p.s.i. of compressed air, our technicians are able to clean each individual vent the entire length from furnace to the grilles, or registers in each room. When the process is complete your heating ducts will be clean and able to provide healthy airflow for your home.
Why Clean Heating Ducts are Important
Research from the American Environmental Protection Agency indicates the air inside your home can be up to 70% more polluted than outside air. This is due in part to the fact that modern homes are constructed to be airtight in order to on save heating costs and air is recirculated throughout your home through ducts that, if not cleaned regularly, add pollutants to the air. Additionally, dust, bacteria, pollen, pet dander and dust mite debris accumulates in your air ducts and can only be removed by having the ductwork professionally cleaned. It may come as a shock to learn that up to 20 kilograms of dirt and pollutants can build up in the heating ducts of the average home each year.
The increased sniffing and sneezing that most of us experience during the heating season can be caused or exacerbated by allergens and other irritants being picked up by the flow of air through your heating ducts. Molds and fungi are additional concerns in humid climates such as ours here in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. In fact, damp air ducts can contain more bacteria than a chicken coop.
Why Cheap Duct Cleaning is not a Good Choice
Saving a few dollars on furnace duct cleaning might actually compromise your family’s health. That’s because the simple vacuuming job you get when you use the cheaper heat vent cleaning services leaves a lot to be desired. It does a poor job of cleaning beyond a few feet of each rooms register. This method is incapable of cleaning the entire length all the ductwork in your home.
Tips About Cleaning Ductwork
For a healthy home and peace of mind, insist on the high pressure, reverse-air-flow technique. The high-tech system we use requires extensive operator training and substantial financial investment, but it is worth it. High-pressure duct cleaning gets every inch of your vents sparkling clean. The reverse air-flow dislodges debris particles of all sizes, something a simple vacuum cleaning system cannot accomplish.
