SERVPRO Can Clean and Sanitize Your Home's Ductwork

You may ask, why is duct cleaning important?  There are several factors that lead to dirty air ducts and the results of restrictive air circulation. We all require water, food, and air to sustain our way of living. It makes sense to control these factors to protect your property along with the health and well-being of your family.

Homeowners in Florida usually do not pay much attention, or may not be aware, of the contaminants that accumulate in their HVAC systems. Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning systems can make life more comfortable for occasional heating, and most definitely for cooling our homes in the summer months. The main collection space for these contaminants is your air ducts. A typical home may produce from 20 to 40 pounds of airborne dust and dirt per year. The interior air of your home goes through a complete recirculation cycle 5 to 7 times per day. Duct cleaning in Defuniak Springs offers several advantageous results because of these factors. The indoor air quality, IAQ, will be enhanced by limiting the recirculation of dust, dirt, dander, dust mites and other bugs, pollen, mold spores, odors, and other potential allergens. Yes, a lot of stuff lurks in air ducts, registers, and the mechanical housings of these systems. Since your unit now flows more freely because the restrictive foreign matter has been cleaned out, your system works more efficiently and will last longer. Your energy bills will be reduced as the result of less work time and effort of your HVAC system.

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, NADCA, and our SERVPRO certified IICRC technicians follow safe and responsible procedures for cleaning duct work and the related components. Our SERVPRO technicians will wear the proper safety equipment, including an N-95 NIOSH, approved respirator, in cases of significant contamination from flooding or fires.

Typical duct cleaning entails agitating debris within the ductwork. The right tools, depending on the material of the conduits, flexible, duct board, or sheet metal, will be used to maximize the cleaning. HEPA filtered vacuums, using negative air pressure, will suction out most of the unwanted debris, and directed for capture to prevent recirculation into to the ambient air of the home. By using this roto-scraping and filtration system, the conduits are ready for a deodorizing spray and a disinfectant fogging if necessary. This will restore a safe and sanitary environment to the interior of the ducts, providing better indoor air quality throughout your home or business. We will also wipe down and clean any dirt or grime on the registers, and provide you with a checklist for maintaining your system. Our initial step is to inspect and assess if this work is beneficial. We always focus on the needs of our customers.
