Tips For Cleaning Your Air Ducts

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

When spring rolls around, cleaning your air ducts is a must. But deciding whether not you should do it yourself or hire a professional is the big question at hand. Depending on the circumstances, you could benefit from calling in a pro. For example, if you have rodents or mold. If not, here is how you can clean your air ducts, even if you’re not an expert:

Cleaning Air Ducts
If you’re prepared to clean air ducts yourself, you will need the following tools:

  • Vacuum. Vacuuming is a popular method that many use to brush away dust. For best results, use a large portable vacuum with a HEPA filter.
  • Mechanical brush. This tool can suck up all the debris stuck in your ductwork.
  • Air sweep. The air sweep method is perhaps the most effective for getting the job done.

Professional Services
With pollution becoming a growing concern for our environment and our homes, it might be a more effective solution to hire a professional. Duct cleaning is essentially an inspection and cleaning of various components of your forced air heating and cooling system. It includes the following:

  • Supply and return air ducts
  • Supply and return registers
  • Heat exchangers
  •  Condensate drains
  • Fan motors and housings
