is Air Duct Cleaning?
It is common knowledge that indoor air pollution is getting now more and
more serious public attention. The cleaning of different heating and cooling
installation components of forced air systems is generally known as duct
cleaning. This service includes the supply and return air ducts and registers,
diffusers and grilles, condensate drain pans (drip pans), heat exchangers
heating and cooling coils, the air handling unit housing, and fan motor
and fan housing.
Improper installation, maintenance, and operation of these elements can
cause contamination with particles of dust, pollen or other impurities.
The moisture in the system usually pollutes the home's living area with
mold's spores. Together with dust, pollen or other impurities these spores
may cause allergies and other pathological reactions in people breathing
the contaminated air.
Does Duct Cleaning Entail?
Duct cleaning entails cleaning the
various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems. These
components include the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles
and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain
pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit
housing. If the decision is made to have the system cleaned, it is important
to clean all the components so the system will not become contaminated
again by unclean parts.
Signs Ducts Should Be Cleaned
There are several factors that help determine if the duct system should
be cleaned. One major factor is mold growth that is visible inside hard
surface ducts or on other components of your system. Be aware that although
a substance may look like mold, it may not be. Only a laboratory analysis
can tell you whether a sample is mold or simply a substance that resembles
it. If the air duct insulation is moldy it should be removed and replaced
and the cause of the growth corrected before the cleaning occurs.
Other factors include rodent or insect infestation
and a clogged system that actually releases contaminants into the home
through the registers.
