Duct Cleaning and Maintenance

close up duct cleaning maintenance

Ducts aren’t the biggest or flashiest part of your HVAC system, but they play an important role and should never be ignored. Ducts circulate the air through your home or building, replacing stale unconditioned air with fresh heat or cold. This process happens many times over each day, and as a result ducts can easily accumulate dirt, debris and other kind of contaminants. Moisture and mold can also be a concern in your ducts. HVAC Toledo 24/7 has years of experience cleaning ducts for satisfied clients, and we’re happy to offer this service to you.

When to Have Your Ducts Cleaned

There are some warning signs for when cleaning needs to happen in your duct system. Mold is the most alarming and should be taken seriously. If you see any mold or mold-like substance around your ducts, they should be cleaned as soon as possible to avoid breathing unhealthy materials. Any kind of insect infestation is also a red flag. Finally, any release of dust or dirt into your rooms from the ducts means they are dirty and need to be cleaned. When we clean, we don’t just brush dirt under the rug, so to speak – we investigate the underlying source of the problem to forestall future problems or maintenance needs.

Duct Cleaning Methods

There’s a few different methods for cleaning your ducts, and which should be used depends on the exact ducts in question. First always comes a thorough inspection to make sure we understand the duct layout and the necessary cleaning. Then we do the actual cleaning, which may include vacuum and brushing tools or even compressed air. We are capable of using a variety of techniques depending on the needs of the situation, but we promise you’ll be satisfied with the results. Leave the details to our skilled technicians and rest easy knowing that your ducts are in the right hands for the job.

Maintenance Checks

Even if your ducts aren’t visibly in need of cleaning, we can perform regular maintenance service on them in order to ensure smooth function and reliability. This includes a detailed series of inspections and tests of various aspects of your duct system. We check ducts for leaks and blockages first and foremost. We also look at the airflow to make sure it’s smooth and strong. We check the electrics, verifying that all connections and wires are intact and safe. If we find anything amiss, we’re ready and prepared to start maintenance right away so you don’t have to wait for problems to be repaired later.
