Vent Duct Cleaning

Most people do not realize that mold, dust, bacteria and mites are lurking in their home's air ducts and vents. This filth is not only a nuisance, it can also be dangerous for small children and people with severe allergies so every homeowner should look into vent duct cleaning.

Usually vent duct cleaning is left to professionals because the job is quite involved. Vent duct cleaning must be thorough to be effective.

Some vent duct cleaning companies that charge low rates will skimp and cut corners though, so it's important to know which factors comprise a proper vent duct cleaning so that you do not become the victim of lazy vent duct scam artists.

Proper Vent Duct Cleaning
Proper vent duct cleaning includes the following:

  • Cleaning of all registers
  • Furnace fan cleaning
  • Cleaning of the inside of all ducts
  • Cleaning of the inside of the ventilation and heating system
  • Cleaning of air conditioning and heat pump coils
  • Disinfectant should be run through the duct vent system to kill any mold, mites and bacteria that is lingering

There are two different methods used for vent duct cleaning, the first involves cleaning with a large vacuum brushing system that works its way through the ducting system and the other involves a high-pressure air hose being forced through the ducting system to remove debris and particles.

Usually a proper vent duct cleaning will last 4 to 5 hours and will cost anywhere from $80.00 - $150.00 an hour. This may seem like a substantial amount of money but it is little to pay to improve the quality of air in your home.

Poor air quality in your home can lead to asthma, emphysema and various respiratory allergies, so the price of cleaning is a small price to pay for the good health of your family.
