What does air duct cleaning involve?

April 20, 2018

When something is out of sight it may be not be top of mind, but in the case of your air ducts—you might want to bring them back into the spotlight. If you aren’t familiar with ductwork, it’s the system of ducts that help to move the air from your heating and cooling system throughout the home. Which means that anything that is sitting in your ducts, such as dust or debris, has the ability to reenter into the air in your home.

It’s important to choose an experienced professional, because if you inadequately clean your air ducts it can end up allowing even more of those contaminants from the ducts into your house. The experts will have the appropriate equipment to execute the air duct cleaning.

First, they will inspect your HVAC system and the ductwork to identify any material that may need special attention or procedures. Once they start cleaning, they will use special tools such as vacuums and rotary brushes to get into the air ducts and begin the cleaning. Ilten's Incorporated also makes sure that all the dirt and debris is contained while leaving the home and keeps all your belongings and the other parts of the house protected during the process.

Having your air ducts cleaned not only gets rid of those contaminants resting in your ductwork, but it improves the efficiency of your HVAC system and gives your home’s indoor air quality an extra boost. Who doesn’t want that?
