What is inside your air ducts? If they look anything like most, then they are probably coated with dust, pollen, mold, dander, mites, rodent droppings, and other bioaeorsols that can cause health problems – not to mention leave an unsightly layer of dust on everything no matter how often you dust and vacuum! To make your home healthier and cleaner, it is recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned at least once per year.

Does Air Duct Cleaning Really Make a Difference?
There is a lot of controversy as to whether professional air duct cleaning services are worth it. Some will recommend that you just put filters over your air duct registers to keep debris from blowing into your home. After what we’ve seen in air ducts, we know that those air filters aren’t going to cut it.
The point of your air ducts is to circulate air from within your home to the HVAC system so it can be heated or cooled, then blown back into the home. Not surprisingly, a lot of dirt gets sucked up with the air. For this reason, register filters are very important – but they aren’t 100% effective at keeping debris out of your air ducts.
The first problem with dirty air ducts is that they can clog up your system and restrict air flow. Your HVAC system won’t work as efficiently, which means you will pay more than necessary for heating and cooling. Cleaning will also extend the lifespan of your HVAC system, which will save you a significant amount of money on replacing your furnace or AC unit.
Debris like dust and pollen are a concern when they are in air ducts, as they can blow into the home and affect indoor air quality. However, the biggest concern is with mold in air ducts. Mold can get into air ducts at any point where there is a leak. Often, mold is found in the AC coils and between the AC unit and ducts. If you have insulation inside your ducts instead of outside, then you are also more likely to get mold. Mold thrives in the dark, humid environment of the air ducts. Each time you turn on the heating or AC, you get a blast of mold spores into your home – some of which can be incredibly toxic. If you have allergies or see mold on your air ducts, it is absolutely necessary to have the air ducts cleaned right away.
How Are Air Ducts Cleaned?
At Steamway Carpet Cleaning Highland Ranch, we believe in doing the job right – and doing it right the first time around. Please note that it is important that ALL components of your HVAC system are cleaned. Otherwise, recontamination will just occur!
The first step of the air duct cleaning process is inspection. We make sure there aren’t any issues, especially asbestos insulation, which could harm your health. We also must determine what material your air ducts are made from. Certain types of air ducts, such as fiber glass lined ducts, need to be cleaned with special NADCA-approved methods.
To clean your entire air duct system, we will need to open access ports. If we must remove insulation to access the ducts, we will always replace the insulation after we finish cleaning. We use equipment like HEPA vacuum cleaners and duct brushes to dislodged particles from the ducts and remove them. Throughout the entire process, your home is protected so contamination does not occur.
We clean everything! These are just some of the parts of your air duct system which we clean:
• Supply and return ducts
• Fan motors
• Fan housing
• Heat exchanger
• Drip pans
• Air handling unit
