Air ducts are an important element in any home or office. Not only do they stabilize the indoor temperature by distributing hot or cool air throughout every room, but they also ensure that fresh air is constantly circulating through the home providing clean air for its occupants.

But despite their usefulness, we also have to see air ducts as they are: potential access points for undesirable substances and contaminants that we absolutely do not want in our home. These can range from microscopic detritus that builds up over time such as dust and dirt, to pests and vermin like small birds, rodents, and insects. Any one of these potential contaminants can and will cause health issues for those who occupy the living space.

Therefore, to stop air ducts from becoming the source of inconvenience and poor health in your home or office, they need to undergo regular inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. To do this, you need a professional duct cleaning company, however, there are some steps you can take in between your duct cleaning maintenance visits.

  • Turn off all HVAC systems before working on your ducts. Not only will the continued air flow make it harder to work, but it may blow dust and other detritus in your direction and cause you to breathe them in.
  • Clean all the dust covers or air grille plates. By cleaning your dust covers before replacing them, you enable clean air to get into your air duct systems more easily.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner. Cleaning your air ducts by hand may prove to be a bit too difficult and time-consuming, so employ the use of a vacuum cleaner to make things easier. Just be careful not to damage the walls of your air ducts as they can be fragile. Make sure not to use your vacuum’s strongest setting either, as this could result in damage.

The Professional Duct Cleaning method: Hiring professionals, like Varney Clean Care, to handle your duct cleaning is highly recommended especially for air duct systems in large facilities or offices, or air duct systems that have clearly been neglected to the point that they have serious mold contamination or pest infestation.

We do not recommend that you try and handle this on your own as you may be putting yourself in harm’s way while doing so. Any attempt you make may also exacerbate the problem. It’s best to leave it to the professionals.

At Varney Clean Care, we are always ready to assist you with any air duct cleaning task you may need help with. We also offer a range of general cleaning services, from carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and area/oriental rug cleaning, as well as restoration services and mold removal.
