Ducts: The Unseen Dirt Collectors

Stop if you’ve heard this saying before: out of sight, out of mind.

While it‘s a familiar saying, it‘s really not a wise way to look at your ducts. Your ducts can be littered with all sorts of debris. Even as you‘re reading this, there could be years of buildup from debris, dust, dirt, pollen, hair, dander and other things, all of which together can interfere with other cleaning efforts. Dirty ducts can also compromise the health of some of the occupants in your property, particularly those with allergies and other respiratory problems.

By having your ducts cleaned regularly, you can help improve the indoor air quality of your residential or commercial property, enhance the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems and add to the overall cleanliness of your property. Utah Duct Cleaning uses specialized equipment and state-of-the-art systems to effectively clean and remove dirt and other contaminants.

Utah Duct Cleaning is Able to Clean All Parts of the HVAC System, Including the Following Components:

  • Air Ducts
  • Coils
  • Drain Pans
  • Registers
  • Grills
  • Air Plenum
  • Blower Motor and Assembly
  • Air filter
  • Air cleaner

It is recommended that all these components be cleaned when cleaning the HVAC system.

How Should Ducts Be Cleaned?

There are two key components to proper air duct cleaning: breaking contaminants loose and collection of contaminants.

Properly cleaned air ducts or HVAC systems requires removing the source of contamination. Source removal begins with use of one or more agitation devices designed to loosen contaminants from the surfaces within the heating and air-conditioning system. Examples of agitation devices include brushes, air whips and compressed air nozzles or “skipper balls”. Agitation can also be achieved through hand-brushing or contact vacuuming.

During air duct cleaning, the entire HVAC system is placed under continuous negative pressure (vacuum) to prevent the spread of contaminants. Continuous negative pressure allows particles to be removed from the system as they become airborne, ensuring that these particles are not released into the living space when the system is turned on after cleaning. This negative pressure also serves to extract the loosened contaminants, which are collected and removed from your property.

How Often Should Ducts Be Cleaned?

If you have not had the ducts in your residential or commercial property cleaned in the last five years, now is a very good time to schedule an appointment. Contained in the hundreds of square feet of surface in your ducts are years of accumulation of dust, dirt, pollen, hair, spider webs, dead insects, dust mites and other allergens and impurities. The impurities and bacteria in your ducts may contribute to the adverse effects of allergies, sinus problems and other health issues. Mold spores and moisture can breed mold growth in contaminated duct systems.

A homeowner CANNOT effectively clean their own ducts. Special equipment and professional training is required. Specially formulated and environmentally friendly solutions can be sprayed into your ducts to kill mold and bacteria and eliminate odors. Duct cleaning can help to keep dust particles out of your property‘s air and off of your furniture and counters.

The entire system needs to be cleaned. Failure to clean all components of the system can result in re-contamination of the system, thus minimizing the benefits of cleaning. Just as you wouldn’t only clean half of your living room floor, you also would not want to clean only part of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

Cleaning Your Ducts Can Also Save Money on Energy

According to the NADCA, recent research has demonstrated that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently by removing debris from sensitive mechanical components. Clean, efficient systems are less likely to break down, have a longer life span, and generally operate more effectively than dirty systems. Given the costs of repair, it would make more sense to have someone perform this “preventive maintenance”.

Clean Your Dryer Vent

Why the Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning as Well

You wouldn’t expect your clothes dryer to be a major factor in the duct cleaning process, but it is, and for good reason. A recent study shows that the clothes dryer was actually the number one cause of house fires in the state of Utah for 2007, and nationally is the cause of over 15,000 house fires a year. The reason the clothes dryer was often the culprit? Many firefighters will say this is caused by a clogged dryer vent.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Helps Prevent House Fires

How can you prevent this from happening to your home? Here are some warning signs that you may need to get your dryer vent cleaned:

  • Clothing will still be damp yet very hot when dryer finishes (especially towels)
  • The dryer itself will feel hot to the touch
  • No lint on the lint collector (this is especially a sign that the exhaust system is clogged)

While it is a very good idea to keep the lint collector and surrounding area clean as much as possible, it is pretty much inevitable that you will need your dryer vent cleaned at some point. Luckily, Utah Duct Cleaning is specialized in cleaning not only ducts and HVAC systems, but dryer vents as well. So why not give Utah Duct Cleaning a call or use our contact form? The sooner you act, the sooner you can prevent your home from becoming another victim of dryer vent fire.
