Planning for winter and getting your ducts in a row

Duct cleaning removes any dirt and debris from your HVAC equipment such as the heating and cooling coils, motors, and air handling units. Duct cleaning helps improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, therefore extending the lifespan.

Having your ducts cleaned does not eliminate dust from your home, it is simply the process of cleaning the HVAC equipment. If you find your family suffers regularly from allergy symptoms, then duct cleaning may be an option for you. It is good practice to have your ducts cleaned every three to five years, especially if under the following circumstances listed below.

Rodents
Once outdoor temperatures begin to drop, rodents begin seeking a warm place to stay over the winter. If they find their way into your home, they have the opportunity to cause damage to your ductwork. Not to mention the harmful viruses and bacteria that mice and rats can transmit. If you suspect that you have a rodent infestation, the situation needs to be resolved immediately. When you have your ducts cleaned we will also check for any holes that are allowing rodents to travel through.

Mold
You will be able to tell if you have mold in your ductwork if you smell a musty odour or if you see discolouration on your air vents. Mold present can cause a variety of health related issues and should be addressed as soon as possible.

New Home Construction & Renovation
There is a good chance that the ductwork contains sawdust, debris, dust from drywall and other materials that have accumulated when your home was being built or during home renovation. Duct cleaning will eliminate these from circulating throughout in your home.

Pets
Pet dander can gather in your HVAC system allowing allergens to transfer throughout your home. Having your ducts cleaned can help improve the air quality in your home, particularly if you have pets.
