Air Duct Cleaning: What is it? and How Do I do it?

Cleaning your air ducts is an essential cleaning service for homeowners. Cleaning your entire duct system with professional equipment using air duct cleaning equipment means that all the return, supply, and intake vents are cleaned. Cleaning your furnace and registers can be included in air duct cleaning.

Columbus Airduct Cleaning has a wide range of professional duct cleaning Columbus equipment that can clean your air ducts to make your home more comfortable. Your air ducts should be cleaned at least once every three to five years. In some cases, however, cleaning them more often than that would result in better results and longer-term maintenance.

What equipment is used by air duct cleaners?

Air Duct cleaners can use small tools or heavy-duty machinery. A minimum of one inspection tool will be carried by an air duct cleaner. These tools can range from a simple mirror to a magnifying glass to a periscope to a CCTV camera system that uses flexible cables to reach the most difficult parts of the air-duct system. Inspecting the air vents will only be done if there is a blockage or other reason (e.g. bad odors).

You will need a brush, a vacuum, and other agitation equipment to clean the air vents. It is possible to clean the air vents by yourself, with just a toothbrush and a vacuum. However, this is not recommended. If you do it wrong, the debris and pollutants will flow into your home through the air ducts. This is not the same as having it removed by professionals.

How can professionals clean air ducts?

The entire cleaning process can easily be broken down into 3 steps: preinspection, cleaning the ducts, and final inspection.

Step 1. Pre-inspection.

After arriving at your location, the air technician will inspect the air-duct system. You will need to inspect all ductwork and assess the condition. After that, you can decide what cleaning method is best for your home. Cleaning will begin after checking the ductwork.

Step 2. Air Duct Cleaning Process: Negative Pressure & Debris Removal.

After that, the technician will set up the vacuum collection device. This is to ensure dust, dirt, and other debris are not spread throughout the house, but collected into the vacuum collection machine. After setting up the vacuum collection unit, the technician will begin to move the duct walls, getting rid of any pollutants such as pollen, dirt, and bacteria.

Step 3. Step 3.

Once the cleaning is completed, it is important to inspect the air ducts again to ensure there was no damage and that they are clean. You now know the basics of air duct cleaning.
