Duct Cleaning Ensures Clean Air, Steady Airflow

A clean, efficient HVAC system is vital for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. But as time passes, indoor ductwork can become clogged with dust, dirt and other contaminants capable of worsening indoor air quality.

A great way to keep everything clean is to schedule professional duct cleaning services.

What Should Professional Duct Cleaning Include?

A detailed cleaning should involve every aspect of your ventilation to secure maximum benefits. This includes the ventilation itself, the vent openings and grilles, and even your HVAC system’s air handler. Almost all of the air inside flows through the ductwork at one point, which means airborne particles and contaminants may eventually spread everywhere if ignored. Furthermore, it isn’t always easy to reach some of the air ducts, so certified cleaning routinely makes use of specialty tools and equipment able to remove dirt, debris and other pollutants from the most difficult-to-reach sections of your ventilation. Let’s walk through what you should expect from duct cleaning in Bethel Park.

  • Perform an in-depth inspection: Before we begin to clean, it’s worthwhile to have a complete understanding of what’s inside your ventilation system. The process starts with a step-by-step inspection so we have a chance to find any problem areas, leaks or other specific concerns. We’ll take a look inside all the air ducts as well as the return and supply vents. If debris is too far back to reach by hand, cameras can be used to wrap up the inspection.
  • Lower the ductwork’s air pressure: While we depend on strong suction to draw out dust and pollutants lodged in the air ducts, it helps to make the environment of the ductwork more favorable to the cleaning process. We seal the vents and hook up the vacuum to your air handler, establishing negative air pressure and helping us to clear out as much debris as we can.
  • Scrub vents and registers to dislodge buildup: Things like humidity and microbes can make some buildup more difficult to remove. All vent openings are unsealed and agitated with tools like brushes and compressed air. This helps dislodge old debris, making it easier for the vacuum.
  • Clean any other ventilation accessories: Certain parts of your HVAC system aren’t technically part of the ventilation, but might still affect airflow and your indoor air quality. We’ll clean or replace the air filter and clean the outdoor unit’s condensate drainage system.

Benefits of Expert Duct Cleaning


Improves indoor air quality

A duct cleaning from trained pros can help to get rid of debris including dust, pollen and pet dander from your HVAC system. This can offer relief from allergy and asthma symptoms and might even help keep you from getting sick.


Encourages energy efficiency

Duct cleaning improves airflow in your HVAC system, reducing the load on your heating and cooling equipment. You will often see lower energy bills immediately following a professional cleaning. If you are still dealing with weak airflow, consider a dedicated ventilation system.


Helps with HVAC repair costs

As time goes by, dirt and debris collects on delicate or key components of your HVAC system. Trying to avoid cleaning entirely may lead to more severe wear and tear, which could even ruin the component prematurely. Duct cleaning stops debris from negatively impacting your equipment, which also helps minimize breakdowns and prolong the life span of your HVAC system.


Purges unpleasant odors:

Struggling with musty or stale smells coming from your HVAC system lately? Warm, humid conditions inside ductwork can encourage mold and mildew spores to take root. A comprehensive cleaning can extract different types of microorganisms, finally taking care of that moldy smell. If you’re still having trouble with microbes, think about installing a Germicidal UV light in the ductwork.
