According to the EPA, levels of air pollution inside the home can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. Household dust can contain mites, mold, mildew, pollen, and animal dander—all of which is cycled through the central air system, which completely circulates the air in your home three to five times a day.
WE INSPECT YOUR DUCT WORK TO SHOW YOU WHAT YOUR BREATHING.
Our Certified Technicians use a video inspection system to evaluate your home’s ductwork.
We look for dirt, debris, animal droppings, mold, moisture and more to determine whether cleaning is necessary to improve the quality of your home’s air. We also inspect the joints and junctions of your duct system. Any connections that are not sealed or improperly joined can cause your heated or cooled air to leak into your attic and/or crawl space. This also means your utility bill is higher than it should be.
Denver Pros follow NADCA’s standards for air duct cleaning and NAIMA’s recommended practice and use the only method endorsed by the Cleaners Association: Negative Air Pressure & Push Pull with Agitation and Brushing tools.
Air duct cleaning is a misnomer. In actuality, the entire HVAC system should be cleaned. Failure to clean all components of the system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus minimizing the benefits of cleaning.
Vacuum Collection Devices
Vacuum collection device are used to create negative pressure within the HVAC system, in order to control the spread of contaminants during the cleaning process. There are two main types of vacuum collection devices: (1) Those mounted on trucks or trailers, and (2) portable units. Truck/trailer mounted equipment is generally more powerful than portable equipment. However, portable equipment can often be as powerful as a truck mounted equipment when brought directly into a facility, allowing the vacuum source to be located closer to the ductwork.
Compressed Air Sources
Many tools and devices used for HVAC system cleaning are pneumatically powered, which requires the use of large amounts of pressure supplied directly to the tools. The most common method of supplying this pressure is through the use of an air compressor.
Antimicrobial chemicals include sanitizers, disinfectants and deodorizers that can be applied to nonporous surfaces in HVAC systems to address microbial contamination and help control odors. Only chemicals registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be used. These products should only be considered after mechanical surface cleaning has been performed and if the need for such treatment has been deemed necessary. Review the NADCA White Paper on Chemical Applications in HVAC Systems for more information.
Don’t wait until you notice a strange smell in your home, your allergies act up or you see dirt on your registers; clean your air ducts now and enjoy a happy, healthy spring season.
