What every homeowner should know about air duct cleaning



By Cumberland Valley Heating and Air Conditioning 

It’s that time of year again when homeowners consider having the ductwork in their homes cleaned.

Homeowners often hear the phrase, “air duct cleaning,” but what exactly does that mean and why should homeowners call Cumberland Valley to learn more…. ?

What is air duct cleaning?

There are two ways to have your air ducts cleaned in your home:

1)   Rotary Vacuum Brushing – Utilizes a spinning brush to scrub dust and debris off the air vents and a vacuum to capture whatever is dislodged

2)   High Pressure Air Washing – Uses pressurized air blown through the air ducts.

 A truck-mounted industrial vacuum is attached to the furnace, and all of the air register vents in the home are covered. Once all the air ducts have been blown clear, another air wand is fed into the end of the hot and cold air supply lines. Dust and debris is then drawn backward into the vacuum.

 

The advantages of duct cleaning are many:

  • Improved health and hygiene
  • Helps stop sneezing and watery eyes
  • Removes allergens and dust

 

Two other facts to consider when deciding to get your ducts cleaned:

1)   Mold – Can lead to illness if left inside your ducts. Professional cleaning may be the only way to remove mold and mildew from your system

2)   Insects & Rodents – Having your air ducts professional cleaned will make your indoor air much safer
