Don’t Ignore Your Dirty Ducts
Dirty ducts may not be something on your mind, but they can be the culprit of allergy attacks, breathing problems and increased dust and dirt build-up in your home.
Duct cleaning should be done at least once every five years to prevent the buildup of dust, skin cells, mites, pollen and other nasty things that interfere with a healthy living environment. Cleaning your ducts can help reduce allergens and also remove unwanted odors.
What to Expect From a SERVPRO of Ames Duct Cleaning
When you call for a duct cleaning, our staff at SERVPRO of Ames will come to your home and complete a thorough evaluation to determine the best cleaning solution for your needs. Before we do anything, we’ll walk you through a standard duct cleaning so you know what to expect.
When we’re ready to begin the cleaning, we first look at your HVAC system and inspect your furnace so we know where to hook up our high-powered HEPA vacuum. Then we clean and cover all the vent openings to create a closed suction system. After that, we hook the vacuum into the main line running from the furnace. We run air lines from an air compressor outside to push the dust and debris to the HEPA filtering system. Once we clean and inspect all the runs, we close the system, clean the furnace and replace the old filter.
After the cleaning we talk with you about checking the filter in 5-7 days to make sure it’s still clean. Then we walk through the entire home to double check that we’ve picked up all our equipment and left your home undisturbed.
If you live in Boone or Story County and it’s been quite a while since you’ve had your ducts cleaned, or if you’ve never had them cleaned, give SERVPRO of Ames a call. We’re certified technicians with the expertise to properly and thoroughly clean your ducts. You’ll notice the improvement clean ducts make on your indoor environment.
