Ductwork Cleaning Houston, Texas

HVAC ductwork is a second thought for most homeowners, as long as your heating and cooling system functions properly. Normal use of your HVAC system will produce a considerable amount of dust and debris that will accumulate in your ductwork. No matter how much you clean your home, if your ductwork has an excessive buildup of pollutants, you will always see and feel the effects.

What is HVAC Duct Cleaning?

HVAC duct cleaning is the process of removing dust, debris, allergens, and other pollutants from entering your home’s HVAC system’s circulated air. During an HVAC duct cleaning, All Star A/C & Heating Services technicians will use tools to agitate, clean, and vacuum dislodged debris from your home’s ductwork. This process will remove airborne pollutants from your home. Regularly cleaning your ductwork will provide improved indoor air quality. All Star A/C & Heating Services recommends that your ductwork is cleaned every two years.

How Frequent Should My Ducts Be Cleaned

The frequency of HVAC duct cleaning is dependent on several factors. We recommend that you get your ducts cleaned every two years. However, if you have family members with compromised immune systems or sensitive allergies, it may be beneficial to have them cleaned more frequently. Multiple pets or pets that shed heavily are additional reasons why you might clean your ductwork more frequently. For HVAC systems that have had water damage or flooding, we strongly recommend replacing them or cleaning them at the bare minimum. If you are unsure about the status of your HVAC ductwork, you can schedule a ductwork inspection so that we can learn more about your home’s ductwork and HVAC system and recommend a schedule for your air duct cleaning.

4 Reasons You Should Regularly Clean Your HVAC Ductwork

Remove harmful pollutants: HVAC duct cleaning will remove harmful pollutants such as dust, pet dander, skin dander, pollen, bacteria, mold, mildew, and other harmful contaminants.

Reduce Allergic Reactions: If you have family members who suffer from allergies, it is imperative that you regularly clean your HVAC ductwork to reduce the potential of an allergic reaction.

Improved Indoor Air Quality: The air inside our home is said to be eight to ten times more polluted than the air outside. Cleaning your HVAC ductwork will remove harmful contaminants so that you can breathe easier.

Improve Energy Efficiency: Cleaning your HVAC ductwork will reduce the wear and tear on your HVAC components.

Most Common HVAC Ductwork Contaminants

Pet Dander:  Your pets are a part of the family. But, no matter how much you treat them like a family member, they are still pets. They shed. That hair and sloughed-off skin ends up in the air of your home and will eventually end up in your HVAC system’s ductwork.

Rodents and Insects: Rodents and insects can make their way into your HVAC ductwork. Many times, they enter through loose connections or compromised ductwork. Hair and skin dander can become an issue, as well as scat can pose huge health issues if left to circulate through your home.

Mold and Mildew: Moisture in your home can produce mold and mildew. Spores from mold and mildew can then circulate through your HVAC system and accumulate in your ductwork. These contaminants will flourish if not addressed and can lead to hazardous and even deadly results. Having a UV air purifier, air duct fogging services, and professional air duct cleaning are steps you can consider to keep your home mold and mildew free.

Remodeling:  Renovating your home is an exciting time. However, renovations can produce a great deal of dust and other contaminants in your home. Such things as drywall, tile, paint, insulation, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can end up in your home’s ductwork. If you are in the middle of or considering a remodel project in your home, All Star A/C & Heating Services suggests that you budget for an HVAC ductwork cleaning at the end of your project.
