Important Air Duct Facts
Almost every home or business has air ducts. But few realize just how important they are to the air that you breathe. Air ducts are simply the conduits through which the HVAC air conditioning unit transmits hot or cold air. If left uncleaned, they can also be sources of allergens, irritants, mold, and fungi which then begin to circulate throughout your home or office. Constant exposure to these pollutants can lead to chronic health issues, such as asthma, heart disease, and even brain damage. According to the CDC mold can cause many health effects. Dirty air ducts can also cause bad odors in the home.
Additionally, dirty air ducts cause the AC unit to work extra hard. This, in turn, ramps up your energy costs. Cleaning your air duct, therefore, has additional benefits of lowering your overall energy bill.
Air Duct Cleaning Services in Pasadena
Pasadena is a large suburb located large in the Southeastern position of Houston, TX. According to the most recent census, the city had close to 150,000. It is considered one of the most highly sought-after neighborhoods in South Texas. Air Quality Express has been servicing Pasadena customers.
It is generally accepted that AC filters should be replaced regularly. While this in itself is commendable, it is only the beginning. In order to experience pristine indoor air quality, the actual air ducts should be cleaned. Why is this important? Read on. If you can’t remember when you last cleaned your air ducts, then it’s time to call Air Quality Express.
Some companies provide a simple, surface level cleaning that looks aesthetically pleasing, but has little tangible benefits. Air Quality Express has a thorough air duct cleaning and maintenance process that can improve your overall air quality in various ways, including allergen removal, improved airflow, and better home hygiene
Why is it important to clean your air ducts?
Why does your home require a professional air duct cleaning? Here’s some ways you will benefit from our services, and why you should not attempt to clean your air duct yourself.
Removal of contaminants in air duct
Like the rest of Houston, Pasadena suffers from high humidity. This type of environment is perfect for dust, dirt, bacteria, mold and other contaminants to thrive in your air ducts. These are then disseminated throughout the home by the HVAC unit. If inhaled, these particles can cause health complications including respiratory issues. Air Quality Express uses the best technology and leverages our vast experience to totally eradicate all the contaminants in your air duct.
Lower energy cost and boost air quality
Because most homes’ air ducts are improperly installed, this can cause your AC unit to work extra hard to compensate. This can cause high energy bills in addition to poor air quality. Cleaning your air ducts will result in better air flow and lower energy
Improved Office/Home Hygiene
We all want healthy environments especially in this age of COVID-19. You can start by cleaning your air ducts. This will ensure better indoor air quality, which in turn translates to better home or office hygiene.
Licensed professional air duct cleaner
Sometimes, you may be tempted to clean your own air ducts. While there is nothing wrong with this, it is not recommended. For starters, you could easily damage your air ducts resulting in costlier repairs. Secondly, the air duct harbors all types of germs, bacteria, mold, and other allergens and contaminants. Without proper protective gear and equipment, this can be hazardous to your health. In fact, you may end up introducing even more dirt into the home.
Air Duct Cleaning Process
How exactly do we perform air duct cleaning? We believe in complete transparency. We strive to include before and after pictures with every invoice.
Step # 1 – Full Ventilation Inspection
Our technicians begin by accessing the attic and performing a thorough inspection of all the components of your ventilation unit. This includes the air distributor, the plenum, the ducts, coils, the blower, and the register covers. Depending on the size of the system, this phase may take approx. 15-30 minutes.
Step One – Ventilation System Inspection
All service calls begin with an inspection, and our certified technicians start their inspection from the main ventilation unit in the attic. This starts with the plenum, the air distributor that feeds the rest of the ventilation system, and includes inspection of the ducts, coils, the return air box, the drainline drip pans underneath the coils, the blower, and the register covers. This should take 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of your ventilation system.
Step # 2 – Providing an Estimate and Scheduling
Depending on what the inspection unveils, the technician then provides an estimate for all the necessary services. If the customer accepts, the work can either be performed on the spot or scheduled for a later time.
Step Two – Estimation and Scheduling
Depending on the findings of the inspection, the technician will provide an estimate for necessary services, and can perform the air duct cleaning either on the spot or at a later scheduled time.
Step # 3 – Cleanup of the Ventilation System
Before beginning the work, the techs have to take apart the ventilation system and its components (plenum, coil, et al). Then a special solution is applied including pressure washing to rid the parts of microbes.
Step Three – Initial Ventilation System Cleaning
To begin the cleaning process, our technicians will disassemble each of the aforementioned parts of the ventilation system (plenum, coil, et al) and use special solutions and pressure washing to rid the parts of microbes.
Step # 4 – Utilizing a High-Suction HEPA Vacuum
Once the tech is satisfied that the surface parts are clean, the next step involves using a truck-mounted HEPA vacuum. This is an industry-class vacuum with a high-suction force for removing excess moisture and any lingering particles. Afterwards a rotor brush is attached to the vacuum to remove particles from the plenum and the register boxes.
Step Four – HEPA Vacuum Cleaning
Once the surface parts are cleaned, the technician will use a truck-mounted HEPA vacuum to remove any excess water and particles from the main attic unit; a rotor brush is then attached to the vacuum to dislodge particles from the plenum and the register boxes.
Step # 5 – Final process
The final process involves sanitizing the register covers and sealing any leaks present in the ventilation system. The can typically take 2-3 hours (it can take longer for larger and more complex systems). Once completed, our system will remind you of maintenance cleaning at regular intervals.
Step Five – Finishing Touches
Once microbes and mold have been removed from your home, our technicians will sanitize the register covers and seal any leaks in your ventilation system. The process usually takes 2-3 hours, with more complex systems requiring more time. Once completed, our system will remind you of maintenance cleaning at regular intervals.
