Indoor Air Quality
Duct Cleaning Services
When it comes to indoor air quality, there's one service you can't forget about: air duct cleaning. It's not surprising that your air ducts get dirty and clogged over time—especially when you consider the sheer volume of air that rushes through them year after year.
That's why it's smart to call in your local ARS®/Rescue Rooter® expert for periodic air duct cleaning services. After all, clean air ducts don't only improve your airflow; they improve the quality of the air in your home, which is especially important if you have family or regular visitors who have allergies or asthma.
Keep in mind, your local ARS branch may not perform duct cleaning. Call 866-399-2885 to confirm if your branch does duct cleaning services.
Why is duct cleaning necessary?
Over time, dust, dirt, pet dander, and all types of particulates pass through your HVAC system. Although your filters catch most of it, the remainder can build up on the interior of your ductwork. This could create a breeding ground for microbes and contribute to poor indoor air quality. Duct cleaning on a regular basis can help prevent these issues from becoming a bigger problem.
What does duct cleaning entail?
After a thorough inspection from our expert technicians to determine the scope of the issue, we get right to work. Our HVAC duct cleaning involves using a high-powered vacuum with a HEPA filter to pull as much dirt from your ductwork as we can. We also use this equipment to clean your furnace’s evaporator coil, vent covers, and the blower motor. Once that’s done, we use compressed air to dislodge any contaminants that remain, so they can be collected by the vacuum.
How often do I need my air ducts cleaned?
When you arrange air duct cleaning service with us, you'll find that a little professional attention goes a long way. In fact, you may only need cleaning every five to seven years on average. However, this frequency can vary depending on several factors, including:
- The number of people in the home
- The number and type of pets you own
- The type of filters being used in your HVAC system
- Whether or not you have carpeting
Do only older houses require this kind of service?
Even newer homes can experience a significant buildup of dust and debris in their ducts. In fact, a brand-new house may be filled with drywall dust and other remnants of construction. This is why it can be so important to arrange AC duct cleaning with ARS/Rescue Rooter, even if you’ve just moved into your home.
Is it possible to clean my ducts myself?
We don’t recommend anyone attempt to clean air ducts on their own, no matter how handy he or she may be. Trying to clean yourself could damage your HVAC system, not to mention put you at risk of serious injuries. It’s best to leave this type of work to experienced professionals.
