Correct Duct Cleaning Procedure for Loudon Residents
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the source removal method is the only way to decontaminate a Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system properly. Source removal involves a cleaning procedure that does not deposit any debris or grime into clean air around the home. That means the removal of unwanted particulates from the ducts. For that reason, using a professional duct cleaning service is an essential part of home maintenance.
To guarantee that loose dust or debris does not enter the home, we use an industrial grade negative air machine. Negative air machines create a powerful vacuum that pulls debris from a ventilation shaft into a series of filters. SERVPRO duct cleaning technicians can remove a section of your ventilation to gain access to the interior of your HVAC before replacing it once thorough interior cleaning is complete, as shown in the video. Our trained crew take no shortcuts when it comes to providing a clean air environment for our customers.
Since most ventilation shafts are relatively narrow, using specialized equipment is a necessity. SERVPRO techs feed roto brushes into the supply shafts of your system to clean the interior walls and dislodge set soiling and accumulated debris. On the return side, which typically contains the thickest buildup of dust and grime, we use a whip system. These machines can be fed into the duct and are exceptionally abrasive- capable of removing even the most stubborn buildup from inside a ventilation shaft.
One of the core reasons that HVAC systems become unclean is that the filters between the ventilation panel and shaft are no longer fit for service. Part of our maintenance service is to remove the main access register and replace the filter with a high-grade anti-allergen one. This filter should be replaced typically every three months. Doing so can have a positive effect on your indoor air quality as well as increasing the lifespan of your system. With a thorough cleaning, a system should maintain efficiency from three to five years. We suggest to get it done right and inspect annually.
