What you can expect when from our Silver Spring air duct cleaning service.
Inspection: The Silver Spring air duct cleaning technician will inspect your air ducts for cracks along the seams of the metal and any holes that will need to be repaired. If the cracks or holes cannot be repaired, the duct may need to be replaced. During the inspection, the Silver Spring air duct cleaning service technician will also check to see if there are fiberglass components to the HVAC system and make sure those components are in good repair. If not, those components will need to be replaced. Loose fiberglass particles getting into the air duct system could pose a very serious health risk as the particles can travel through the air and be breathed in very easily. Our Silver Spring air duct cleaning professionals will check for any moisture accumulation in or around the ducts. If it is present, it is possible that mold spores could be growing in or around the ducts.
Cleaning: There are several steps to the process that our Silver Spring air duct cleaning professional will take to insure the ducts are correctly cleaned. It is more than just vacuuming out the ducts or wiping the accumulated dust off of the HVAC components. Our Silver Spring air duct cleaning technicians will:
Remove surface dirt and debris from the air ducts by using a specialized tool to agitate the dirt and debris from the sides, bottom and top of the metal structures. Then they will use a high powered vacuum to remove it from the system.
Once the dirt and debris is removed from the air ducts, the other components of the HVAC system will be cleaned as well by our Silver Spring air duct cleaning service. All dust and dirt will be removed from coils, motors, and all other pieces of the equipment. Drain pans will be emptied and cleaned, as well as the registers and vents inside of your home or office.
The equipment and air ducts will then be sanitized by our Silver Spring air ducting cleaning service with a non-toxic, EPA approved sanitizer to help reduce or eliminate bacteria and germs from the system. Mold spores, bacteria from rodent droppings or other contaminants are often found in air ducts and need to be eliminated.
Our Silver Spring air duct cleaning service will discuss the possibility of spraying your system with a biocide to keep bacteria and fungus at bay. All such products are EPA approved and safe for you and your family.
Lastly, all of the filters should be changed and a final inspection done to make sure the system has been thoroughly cleaned by our Silver Spring air duct cleaning service. If one small detail has been overlooked, it can easily re-contaminate the cleaned air ducts and be dispersed through the air you and your family breath.
Cost: An inspection and Silver Spring air duct cleaning of your air duct system can cost anywhere from around $400 to $1000. Many companies will claim they can do it for far less, but you should read the fine print before agreeing to hire those services. Often times the low prices are only referring to cleaning vents or registers and not the entire air duct and HVAC system. Unfortunately, there are less than scrupulous companies out there that will promise one price and when the job is done charge much more. By hiring our Silver Spring air duct cleaning service, you can be assured that will never happen.
