    Attic Projects Provides A Comprehensive Thermal Imaging Evaluation of Your Ducting System to Reveal Issues Such As

    • Air Leaks into the Attic
    • Potential Energy Loss From Inadequate Ducting
    • Pollutants and Other Factors Affecting the Cleanliness of Your Home

    How to Tell if Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning ?

    We’ll be transparent; other air duct cleaning companies tell you you need duct cleaning when you don’t. Here’s the truth. While it’s not a part of routine HVAC maintenance, duct cleaning is recommended every 3-5 years. Working with top-notch air duct contractors can significantly extend that time frame.

    Regular inspections are recommended to ensure you aren’t experiencing any of the following issues:

    • Ducts infested with rodents or insects
    • Visible mold growth inside the ducts or on other HVAC components
    • Ducts clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris

    According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you most likely need your air ducts cleaned if you have any of these issues. You may also need an inspection if you recently had home renovations done, a pest infestation in your attic, or are unsure when someone last checked your air ducts.

    How Air Duct Cleaning Works

    An Attic Projects technician will come out to your home and inspect your air ducts. We’ll provide an honest and upfront air duct inspection and let you know if cleaning is necessary. Having a certified technician check your system beforehand is crucial to a safe cleaning process.

    Professional duct cleaning is not something to be done on a whim. It requires specialized blowers, vacuums with a HEPA filtration system, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts. We also recommend a thorough cleaning of the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils of the HVAC system for greater benefits.

    Cleaning will remove dust and dirt, mold and other debris built up in the ductwork, vents, and HVAC system. We’ll also call in our rodent removal specialists if necessary.

     Is Air Duct Cleaning Worth It ?

    Under the right conditions, getting your system cleaned is entirely worth it. Here’s why.

    Improves HVAC Performance

    When your ductwork is dirty, damaged, or improperly installed, it can mean your HVAC has to work harder to push air through your air ducts. This additional wear and tear on your HVAC can be made worse by:

    • Rodent nests and other pest damage
    • Avoiding routine maintenance
    • Home renovations and remodels that render existing ductwork ineffective
    • Incorrectly sealed ductwork and floor supply registers
    • Breakdown of sealants and tapes adhesive

    Your HVAC will stay in optimal condition by taking proper maintenance steps.

    Removes Harmful Contaminants and Intruders

    Pests and mold are two things that no one wants to live in their home. When your ducts haven’t been cleaned, there’s a chance you’ll find visible mold growth, vermin infestation, or clogging. Our air duct cleaning process removes these invasive problems to give you peace of mind.

    Eliminates the Source of Unpleasant Odors

    Certain odors can get stuck in your air duct system and disperse throughout your home. These odors can result from excessive mold growth, rodent activity, and debris. If the source of the smell is in your air ducts, then your dirty ducts can contaminate the air with an unpleasant odor. 

    By removing the source, the smell should dissipate. However, if you have ongoing problems with rodents or mold, you may need a professional inspection in other areas of your home.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Can air duct cleaning damage my ductwork?

    When done by a professional, the risk of damaging your ductwork is significantly reduced. That’s because certain kinds of ductwork are more susceptible to damage than others. Before we clean your ducts, we’ll determine if you have the following:

    • Flexible Ductwork (most vulnerable to damage)
    • Semi-Rigid Ductwork (average vulnerability)
    • Rigid Ducting (least vulnerable to damage)

    It’s important to note that flexible ductwork is the most vulnerable to damage because of its thinner material, structure, and aging process. If we think your ducting is at risk for damage, we’ll let you know and find a proper solution.

    Can I clean air ducts myself?

    Without professional tools like a high-powered vacuum cleaner and rotary brushes, cleaning your air ducts can cause more harm than good. You should always hire a certified technician to work on your air duct cleaning to avoid causing damage.
