Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning
When a homeowner or business operator searches for answers about air duct and HVAC cleaning it is often the low-pressure tactics employed by the team for SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties that sets us apart. Although there are many scenarios where cleaning vents and ductwork is a wise move, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not recommend frequent duct cleaning in the absence of specific indicators.
SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties performs duct and vent cleaning when the passageways show clogs of significant amounts of dust and debris. If particulates soil the walls near supply registers that is a sign cleaning is needed. Other venting systems related to dryers or heaters filled with lint or other residues should be cleared.
We also recommend cleaning if vermin or insects infest air vents and HVAC systems. Visual inspection of as much of the ductwork as possible is necessary before cleaning. Visible mold growth might need professional containment and removal following EPA mold remediation protocols. Elimination of the moisture that caused the mold growth must be accomplished, or the mold can recur.
However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.
The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:
- Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
- May help to eliminate offensive odors.
- Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
