It is easy to forget about the ductwork in your home, out of sight, out of mind right? However neglecting your ductwork can cause you and your family memebers to have a wide range of heath problems. While your ductwork’s main job is to carry heated or cooled air into your home or business, it also carries many other things along with the air including:

  • Mold
  • Dust
  • Mites
  • Allergens
  • Pollen
  • Bacteria
  • Dirt
  • Debris

About Our Air Duct Cleaning Service

Air duct cleaning is an excellent way of helping to keep your family healthy. During the air duct cleaning appointment, we will visually inspect your air ducts with cameras to determine the level of buildup. After the inspection, we will use our specialized tools to brush away the debris and vacuum them into a contained system. We work in your ducts from the back forward to avoid leaving any debris behind. After the cleaning, we will re-inspect your ductwork to make sure they are completely clean. We will also apply a safe cleaning solution to prevent the buildup of mold in between cleanings.


How Do My Ducts Get So Dirty?

Your ducts are likely dirty from the first moment you use your forced air system. During installation, debris can be left behind, indoor and outdoor air can deposit bacteria and debris in the ducts through normal use and if your ductwork has holes, gaps or leaks, dust, dirt and bacteria can enter your ductwork from the attic space. If you do have leaks in your duct system, a thorough cleaning is especially vital due to rodents and other critters that can live in and die within your attic space. Because air holds moisture, as it passes through your ductwork it can allow mold to grow and thrive. The spores that mold produce will then be passed into your home, posing a great health risk for your family.


Duct Cleaning Benefits:

  • Improved Air Quality: Air ducts are the perfect place for debris, dust, pet dander and other harmful elements such as mold and mildew. Over time your air ducts collect these particles and they are released into your living space. Essig will clean your home’s air duct system and prevent these particles from harming you and your family.
  • Reduce Allergies: As mentioned above air ducts collect dust, debris and other harmful elements. A cleaner and healthier air duct system will reduce contaminants that trigger allergies.
  • Improve Efficiency: Cleaning buildup from air ducts will help your heating and cooling systems run more efficiently – saving money on your utility bills and extending the life of your systems. A clean and well maintained duct system is less likely to cause your heating and cooling systems to break down or require expensive repairs.
