Air Duct Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How often should air ducts be cleaned?
A: Cleaning your air duct systems is not necessarily a routine job, but should be done on an as-needed basis. Call us today to find out if your air ducts are overdue for cleaning services. Kiwi offers a full-system air duct cleaning to clean and disinfect every part of your HVAC system, which includes humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air filters, air circulation blowers, and air ducts. It is also backed by our 2-year guarantee that assures no mold or mildew grows in your home.
Q: How do air ducts get dirty?
A: Your central heating and air conditioning system is the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth and dust. As these air contaminants collect on the motor and fan, they are redistributed throughout your home, which can directly affect the air you breathe, making duct cleaning that much more important.
Q: What health problems can dirty air ducts cause?
A: Air contaminants can aggravate allergies and hay fever, and potentially cause asthma attacks. On average, we spend about 90% of our time indoors, so it’s essential for our indoor air quality to be healthy, which is why it’s so important to hire professional air duct cleaning services as needed. Children, pregnant women and the elderly who spend most of their time at home are especially susceptible to such risks.
Q: When performing air duct cleaning services, do your technicians clean anything other than the ductwork? Is it necessary to clean any other parts of the system besides the ducts?
A:Kiwi is committed to cleaning all air handling components within your system, including ductwork, blowers, and filters. Here at Kiwi, we believe that it’s important to clean the entire system during the air duct cleaning process. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) says, “Failure to clean a component of a contaminated
[air duct] system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.”
Q: If I have my air ducts cleaned, will this solve my air quality problems?
A:Although it’s not guaranteed to solve all air quality problems, scheduling an air duct cleaning is a step in the right direction. Because you are eliminating the current build-up of dust and debris from within your system, you are keeping it from being circulated throughout your home. However, there are many other surfaces within your home that could be contributing to an overall air quality issue. Improve your indoor air quality by consistently vacuuming, dusting, and keeping the carpets and upholstery clean.
