Duct Cleaning and Indoor Air Quality
How much do you think about the air quality in your home? If you’re like most homeowners—the answer is almost never, until, of course, someone gets sick or until the air quality gets so low that it’s noticeable. Your indoor air quality (IAQ) is of the utmost importance to the health and safety of your family, and scheduling regular duct cleaning is one such way to ensure that the air inside your home stays clean and safe.
Without proper and regular maintenance of your air ducts, the components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
So, what exactly does a duct cleaning look like and what does it entail?
The Air Duct Cleaning Process by KIWI Services
Here at KIWI Services, we know how important your family’s health and safety is, which is why we offer expert air duct cleaning services that are beneficial for your home’s indoor air quality. And not only is an air duct cleaning helpful for your air quality, but it can also improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. A dirty HVAC system requires more energy for it to run—and in fact, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling your home is, in fact, wasted. A professional HVAC cleaning, however, will help you reduce your energy costs and remove years of accumulated dirt, debris, and allergens.
During an air duct cleaning, your KIWI Services HVAC professional will remove the dust and debris in your system by completing the following:
• Cleaning out the unit, squirrel cage, fan, and all the accessible air handling components in the furnace
• Removing and hand washing of vent covers
• Vacuuming individual ducts to remove debris
• Applying an antimicrobial treatment throughout the system to disinfect
• Cleaning surrounding vent areas
• Reinstalling the vent covers
• Cleaning or replacing the filter or installation of a new filter
