Dirty air ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace. But they can be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants. This can cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, or types of allergies.
Our experts connect a powerful vacuum system to the air duct near the furnace. Commercial grade products and equipment are used to dislodge the contaminants and debris in the air duct. Contaminants are pulled out of the ducts and through the filtration system. Clean air is returned back into your home or facility.
After cleaning, all access holes are resealed, returning the duct system to a clean, like-new condition. Vent covers are cleaned and disinfected. Coils in the duct work are also cleaned thoroughly.
Indoor air quality is the major concern that home and business owners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In even a modest six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.
Clean, well maintained mechanical systems also operate more efficiently and last longer.

- Residents or visitors experiencing allergies or asthma symptoms when indoors
- Severity of allergies or asthma symptoms being experienced
- Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
- Any evidence of water damage, mold or airborne contamination to the home or HVAC system
- After home renovations or remodeling that create lots of dust & debris
- Trying to keep down cigarette odors to minimum
- Lingering unpleasant odors that regular household cleaning doesn’t address
- Compromised immune system or chronic respiratory issues
How are Air Ducts Cleaned?
Professional contractors use commercial equipment to create negative pressure with a high power vacuum and high-efficiency filter.
Specialized devices with compressed air and brushes are used to knock loose dirt, contaminants and foreign objects. These things are then filtered out by the vacuum system.
Are Chemicals Used in the Process?
Both odor treatments and anti-microbial disinfectants are available. These are typically not required or included in a regular maintenance cleaning.
Make sure to discuss these options prior to getting quotes if you suspect they are necessary due to the presence of fungi, molds, or viruses.
Also make sure when comparing quotes that the specific treatment proposed or requested is the same. Beware of contractors that propose to “sanitize” your vent lines with an inexpensive oder treatment.
If requested, ACR will only disinfect your air ducts with a high quality EPA-registered anti-microbial solution.
Will Cleaning My Air Ducts Save Electricity?
Clean HVAC systems (ducts, condensers, coils, drains) are less likely to have maintenance issues and operate more efficiently. Simply put, the system doesn’t have to work as hard and this prevents unnecessary wear and tear to extend component life. Regularly cleaning your HVAC system allows it to operate more efficiently and use less energy.
