What are air ducts?

Air conditioning ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and remove air. These air flows include vents (supply air) and returns (return air - this is where you change the filter). Your air conditioning ducts are often referred to as ductwork.

What is duct cleaning?

Cleaning vents eliminates contaminants such as home dust, mold, fungi, and bacteria in your home or office air conditioning ducts, and should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality and help reduce allergies from dust.

Here are a few signs and indicators that you might be in need of duct cleaning:

  • When cleaning, you need to sweep and dust your furniture more than usual.
  • After cleaning, there's still left over home dust floating around the house that you can see.
  • Rooms in your house have little or no air flow coming from the air conditioning ducts.
  • You're constantly getting sick or are experience more allergies from dust than usual.
  • When you turn on the furnace or air conditioner there's musty or stale odor.
  • You're experiencing signs of sickness: fatigue, headache, sneezing, stuffy or running nose, irritability, or dry or burning sensation in eyes, nose and throat.
  • After or during sleep you experience headaches, nasal congestion, or other sinus problems.
