Duct work in homes is often over looked, even by some professionals. Ducts can often be the route to problems with A/C and heating systems. When was the last time you had your ducts checked by a professional? It’s ok if your answer is “I never have had them checked.” That is the most common response, after all they are most commonly found in a part of your home that nobody really wants to go into, either the attic, under the home or someplace else dark and hot. It is our responsibility to check all aspects of your cooling needs, including your ducts. Ducts should generally be replaced when your system is replaced, and cleaned every 5 to 10 years. After all, you are breathing in all of the dust and biological growth that has accumulated since the day they were originally put in.
Our company uses the Rotobrush Duct cleaning system. It is the best way to clean ducts because it uses Point OfContact Cleaning, which means that as the brush goes through your ducts pulling all the dirt and grime from your duct liner, it sucks it right out through an attached vacuum hose before it has a chance to settle or get away. If your ducts are in good shape and are not torn or ripped anywhere, then duct cleaning is the way to go.
