EPA Recommendations on Air Duct Cleaning

It is a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists several minimal reasons for having air ducts cleaned for health reasons:

checkmark
There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system. There are several important points to understand concerning mold detection in heating and cooling systems:

  • Many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be accessible for a visible inspection, so ask the service provider to show you any mold they say exists.
  • You should be aware that although a substance may look like mold, a positive determination of whether it is mold or not can be made only by an expert and may require laboratory analysis for final confirmation. For about $50, some microbiology laboratories can tell you whether a sample sent to them on a clear strip of sticky household tape is mold or simply a substance that resembles it.
  • If you have insulated air ducts and the insulation gets wet or moldy it cannot be effectively cleaned and should be removed and replaced.
  • If the conditions causing the mold growth in the first place are not corrected, mold growth will recur.

Ducts are infested with vermin, e.g. (rodents or insects); or

Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.

However, besides these “at risk” reasons sited by the E.P.A, there are others reasons, such as health, fire safety, and energy efficiency to have ducts cleaned.

If these ducts are air escape routes from air conditioning systems, dryers, or condensate drain pans, then it would be a good idea to have a regular cleaning for mildew and mold that might develop in the ducts.

We offer a professional service, with knowledgeable men and women who will customize the service to whatever the situation might call for. For most ducts, it shouldn’t take more than about 45 minutes to an hour to clean a duct. If more complicated, it may take longer. They can also inspect your air conditioner, furnace, chimney, and dryer while they are there. They also have service to clean appliances and stoves.
