Signs You Need Air Duct Cleaning
According to the a href="https://nadca.com/">National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), air duct cleaning should be carried out around every 3 to 5 years. However, there are some circumstances where air duct cleaning in Redmond, OR should be carried out more frequently or “off schedule”. If you’ve recently changed your furnace, if you’ve had construction work done on your home, or if your home is also home to pets you may wish to clean your air ducts more frequently.
Calling a professional air duct cleaning service like Rainbow International Restoration is even more important if you suspect you have:
- Mold growth – If you smell that telltale odor of mold coming from your airways, it’s time to call in the professionals at Rainbow International Restoration. Only professional cleaning is able to safely and effectively eradicate mold growth.
- Pests – Rodents, insects, and other common pests may take up residents within your ductwork. If you’ve heard scurrying or seen visible signs of a pest infestation in your airways, it’s time to call the professionals straight away.
- Dust accumulation – Excessive dust accumulation inside of the home could be coming from an excessive dust presence in your airways. Your Redmond, OR Rainbow International Restoration professional can check the amount of dust in your airways, and clear the dust away to avoid its travelling through the air and onto your surfaces.
Other considerations may include:
- The number of pets in the home. The more and hairier the pets, the more frequent cleanings are required.
- The number of smokers who smoke in or immediately outside the home.
- The area you live in. If you live in a region that is very moist, dry and dusty or with frequent high pollen counts, you should schedule more frequent cleanings.
Our Home Air Duct Cleaning Process
When you hire Rainbow International Restoration to clean your home’s ductwork, our local technicians will:
- Inspect the system before cleaning; including checking to make sure no asbestos is present. (If this is the case, special equipment will be needed to remove the offending material.)
- Lay protective covers over household furnishings and carpet to protect soft materials during the cleaning process.
- Vacuum the interior of the ductwork and either exhaust the air outside the home or use equipment fitted with a HEPA filter.
- Brush interior duct surfaces with a soft-bristled brush to dislodge dust and debris.
- Remove animal nests and other evidence of pests.
- Remove any damp insulation that may have caused mold.
- Seal and insulate ductwork. Re-insulate any access doors that were necessary to open for cleaning to take place, and any damp insulation that was removed.
Common Indoor Air Contaminants
The EPA says that indoor air is often many times more polluted than outdoor air. Many of these contaminants get stuck or even grow in the ductwork, possibly getting re-circulated into the air you breathe. According to the EPA, “Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants through the home.”
The most common indoor air contaminants are:
- Bacteria & viruses
- Mold spores
- Pet dander
- Animal and insect droppings
- Dust mites
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from household cleaning products and construction supplies like paints, varnishes and glues
