Our Duct Cleaning Technicians can clean, repair and seal your air ducts. Cleaning your ducts can help to reduce allergens and airborne pollutants. You'll breathe easier and enjoy more comfort after your air ducts have been professionally cleaned by Dalworth.
Over time, household dust, allergens and contaminants can accumulate on the inside lining of your air ducts. Here is a list of the most common contaminants found inside air duct systems:
Think household dust is just dust? Think again. Household dust is a mixture of a surprisingly large number of elements. For more information on what makes up household dust, click here.
Construction debris from new construction or past remodeling is commonly found inside air ducts.
Although not very common, it does happen. Animals like raccoons, rats, mice and even snakes have been found inside air ducts.
Minor problems with ducts can result in condensation inside the ducts. Insulation failure, a puncture in the duct wall, or a bad connection between components of the duct system can allow moisture to form. Moisture, combined with content in the dust, can result in mold growth.
Dalworth uses a "source removal" method for cleaning ducts. Our equipment connects directly to your duct system and a powerful vacuum creates a "reverse airflow" through the ducting. A separate cleaning tool that cleans the duct lining is then pushed through the ducting. Contaminants are picked-up into the air stream and removed from the ducts.
Some duct cleaners fog in a "sealing agent" into the duct system. The sealing agent uses adhesives to seal the dust and contaminants to the duct wall. Dalworth does not use this type of process.
The blower fan and evaporation coil are cleaned in place. Even a thin layer of dust here can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system. Also, the continual presence of moisture during the cooling season can lead to mold growth on the evaporation coils.
The presence of mold inside an HVAC system can be an allergy trigger for some. Our Standard and Premium Service Packages include the application of an EPA registered disinfectant to the coils and the ducts.
An optional Anti-Allergy Treatmentcan be applied to the system.
This treatment will denature proteins that are commonly found.
The air duct system in your home is used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, some portion of the air moving through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. This lowers efficiency, increases energy costs and makes it more difficult to keep the house comfortable.
Dalworth offers an optional video inspection service for duct systems. Using a specialized video camera system, we can inspect and record the interior condition of a duct system. It's a great to know, with absolute certainty, what the true condition of the inside of your duct system is.
Small amounts of mold growth inside an HVAC system is not unusual. Evaporation coils and around vents are the most common areas for mold growth. Ducts in need of repair, or a system not operating properly, are usually the cause. Dalworth offers an optional sanitizing treatment to address minor mold and bacterial issues. More serious mold contamination is a completely different issue. Mold contamination of the duct system requires the attention of an Industrial Hygienist prior to any attempt to clean or remove.
You'll breathe easier and enjoy a cleaner indoor environment after having your ventilation system professionally cleaned by Dalworth Clean. Regular replacement of your systems air filters will help to maintain an optimum level of indoor air quality.
