Why Clean Your Air Ducts?
Most home dust contains dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen, and/or animal dander. Many of these contaminants are circulated through the central air system and can aggravate asthma and allergies.
Air Duct Cleaning is useful for those who do not like dust on everything. The reason that dust accumulates on ceiling fans and other furniture is that the air ducts are dirty. Poor quality air filters unchanged over long periods of time are usually the culprit. Once dust gets into the system it spreads throughout the entire duct work and home.
What are some benefits of Cleaning your Air Ducts?
Energy Savings - Clean vents means your HV/AC equipment is not restricted, so it does not work harder to produce the same results in your home
IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) - Duct work is considered the lungs of your home, keeping the duct work clean means less dust circulates in your home, to help keep your lungs clean!
What is Air Duct Cleaning?
Duct Cleaning Consists of 3 Major Steps:
Our inspector will check your home to estimate the length of the job, access to vents, and price. The Inspector will also show you some of the current dust in your ducts, as well as before and after pictures from previous work.
Preparation and Cleaning
Our technicians will first adjust to your home's layout and use appropriate materials to avoid dirtying your home. They will then begin the cleaning process consisting of using tools to loosen the dust and dirt inside the duct work, then suction it all out!
Sanitize and Finishing Process
After our technicians have fully cleaned your duct work, they sanitize your duct work with eco-friendly (and breathing friendly!) spray. Any noticeable air gaps in your duct work are also patched. Afterwards, our technicians will go over a checklist with the customer to ensure satisfaction!
At Platinum Air Care We Take Safety Seriously
2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.
The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them (34%)
More home clothes dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months, peaking in January.
During the cleaning process, Platinum Air Care's technicians will also clean your dryer vent from front to back, if our technician determines that your current dryer filter is unsafe, we will replace it at no additional charge.
How often should your air ducts be cleaned?
On average we suggest duct cleaning every 3 to 4 years. If a home owner has pets, children, or a type of respiratory illness, without any type of filtration system, every 1 to 2 years is recommended.
Where does all the dirt go?
All the dirt and dust is vacuumed directly to our truck and is taken with us to properly dispose of.
How long does the average duct cleaning take?
The average single family home takes about 1-2 hours for up to 10 ducts. This can take longer with more ducts, and older homes.
Will you leave a mess in my home?
Absolutely not! Our technicians are trained to respect you and your home, taking extra time to ensure a clean inside, and outside of your duct work.
Can you clean my Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) or Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) vents?
Yes! However HRV/ERV vent cleaning is an additional cost (like dryer vent cleaning). These vents are usually more delicate and fragile, taking more time to safely clean. Our technicians can also switch out your vents for new, clean ones if preferred!
