Why Is Visual Aid Equipment Used in Duct Cleaning?

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Most people think of duct cleaning as a quick vacuuming. But professional duct cleaning involves a whole lot more than simply cleaning your registers and removing the visible dust and dirt in your ducts. Your ductwork can run long and deep, and it is in these deeper areas where dust and dirt can really accumulate and cause problems for you, your family members and your home. However, when you hire the trained experts at Clean Air Act for professional duct cleaning in Gresham, OR, you can rest assured that your duct cleaning will have great results. Why? We’ll explore this more below.

Tools of the Trade

One of the reasons professional duct cleaning has excellent results is because of the kinds of tools that are utilized in the service. Not only are professional-grade and HEPA vacuums used, but so are pneumatic tools and visual aid devices. You may be asking yourself, why use visual aid equipment? The answer is because while there are access points in your ductwork, it isn’t possible to see everything all at once – unless you have video equipment. Video equipment allows the technician to see every nook and cranny of your ductwork so that no area is missed during the cleaning process. The video also gives the technician the ability to see problem areas and handle them accordingly.

Why Schedule Duct Cleaning?

Duct cleaning isn’t just about removing dirt, dust and contaminants in your ductwork, although this is a big part of the process. It is also about helping to improve your indoor air quality and take excess stress off your HVAC system.

When you have too much dirt and dust in your ductwork, it can restrict air flow; this creates an imbalance in your HVAC system and can lead to operational issues, malfunction and possible breakdown. Excess dirt and dust can also lead to the development of mold, mildew, dust mites and fungi, all of which will blow directly into your living spaces. Professional duct cleaning removes the dirt and dust layer that can lead to these problems.

It’s recommended that your ducts are cleaned every 3-5 years, so if it’s time to clean your ductwork in Gresham, OR, call us today!

Why Get Professional Duct Cleaning in Portland, OR

Most homeowners don’t give their ducts much thought throughout the year. However, as your AC or heating system operates, it will deposit many different kinds of contaminants in your ductwork. Things like pet dander, dust, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants can start o build up in your ductwork. Unless you get your ducts cleaned, those contaminants will just continue to circulate through your home’s air supply. Getting regular duct cleaning in Portland, OR is a great way to potentially make a positive impact in your home’s air quality.

Another reason that you should think about getting duct cleaning is that it could be able to increase the efficiency of your home’s air conditioning system as well. As air moves through your ducts, any contaminants or blockages will hinder the flow of the air. This means that your AC system has to work harder to push the air through which reduces its efficiency.  By keeping your ductwork clean with regular duct cleaning you might be able to reduce the amount of restrictions that your air has to move past inside of your ducts.

When you need any kind of duct cleaned, make sure that you call the Portland, OR duct cleaning technicians at The Clean Air Act. We are dedicated to your complete satisfaction and to the quality of work that we do.
