How to Clean Air Ducts

For homeowners, air duct cleaning is a vital cleaning service. All ducts, including the intake, return, and supply vents, must be cleaned with professional air duct cleaning equipment. If you have an HVAC unit, cleaning your furnace or registers may be part of the air duct clean.

Columbus Airduct Cleaning offers a variety of professional duct cleaning tools to clean your ducts. This will make your home cleaner and more healthy. Cleaning your air ducts is recommended every three-five years. However, in certain cases, you may need to clean them every two to three years.

What equipment does an air-duct cleaner use?

Air Duct cleaning equipment can be used with small, hand-held tools as well as heavy-duty machinery. Additionally, an air duct cleaning crew will likely have at least one inspection tool. This can be anything from a simple magnifying mirror to a periscope and even a CCTV camera system with flexible cables that allows them to get into the toughest parts of the air system. The inspection equipment will only be used in situations where the air vents are blocked or have other problems (e.g. bad odors).

The most common cleaning tools are vacuums, brushes, and other agitation device. Although you can clean your air vents with a simple brush or vacuum, it is not recommended. It is better to hire professionals to remove the dust and pollutants from your home than to do it wrong.

How can professionals clean ducts?

The entire cleaning process is broken down into 3 steps: pre-inspection, duct cleaning, and a final walk-through inspection.

Step 1. Pre-inspection.

After arriving at the location, an air duct technician will inspect your air duct system. After checking all access points to the system, the technician will inspect the inside of the home and determine which cleaning method would work best. Cleaning can begin once you have checked all the access points to the ductwork.

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

The technician will then arrange the vacuum collection units. After setting it up, the technician begins to clean the ductwork walls. This will remove any pollutant or bacteria that has clung to the walls.

Step 3. Step 3.

To ensure nothing was missed, an additional inspection of the air-ducts after cleaning is performed to ensure the ducts are completely clean. Now you are familiar with how air-duct cleaning works.
