Enhance Your Comfort & Health with Comprehensive Air Duct Cleaning
Air ducts work with your central heating and air conditioning system to move warmed or cooled air throughout your home. Over time, these air ducts can become dirty and clogged with dust, debris, and other contaminants. This not only reduces the efficiency of your HVAC system but also leads to poor indoor air quality, which can be bad for your health and the safety of your family.
The best way to ensure the optimal performance of your heating and cooling equipment, as well as an ideal indoor air quality level, is to schedule regular professional air duct cleaning with Robison. Our highly trained and experienced technicians provide comprehensive air duct inspections and cleaning services in Westchester and Putnam Counties. We work quickly and efficiently to minimize disruption, all while taking care to protect your home and provide the highest level of customer service.
What Is Air Duct Cleaning?
In simple terms, air duct cleaning refers to the professional cleaning of the various components of a forced-air heating and cooling system, specifically the air ducts that are responsible for moving heated and cooled air throughout a home or commercial space.
This includes but is not limited to:
- Supply and return ducts
- Heating and cooling coils
- Fan motors and housing
- Air handler housing
- Condensate drain pans
The actual process of air duct cleaning typically involves a visual inspection, followed by the complete removal of all dirt, debris, dust, and particles from the system. Your air duct technician will use a variety of specialized tools—including vacuum devices, air compressors, and rotating brushes—to agitate and remove dust and other particles from the network of air ducts and all related components.
The Importance of Regular Air Duct Cleaning
The same dust, hair, pet dander, and dirt you vacuum from your floors and upholstery builds up in the air ducts within your home. This debris filters into the ducts and gets recirculated throughout your home, leading to problems ranging from increased allergy symptoms to unnecessarily high energy bills.
Heating and cooling systems generally hold the most debris. If not properly maintained, this can lead to a wide range of problems. On top of this, moisture in the air can cause mold and bacteria growth, which will disperse into the home.
Our air duct experts at Robison are highly qualified to investigate your heating and cooling systems. We look at every component to ensure that you’ve received the best service possible.
Most professional HVAC technicians agree that you should have your air ducts professionally cleaned every three to five years. Various factors influence how frequently you should schedule air duct cleaning services, including how often you use your heating and air conditioning system, whether you have indoor pets, and whether anyone smokes inside the home.
Additionally, there are several signs that it may be time to schedule a professional air duct cleaning service. These include:
- Visible dust, dirt, and debris on HVAC grills
- New or worsened mold or mildew growth
- Poor indoor air quality
- Increased frequency of colds, flu, and respiratory illnesses
- Worsened allergy or asthma symptoms
- Rodent or insect infestation
- Reduced heating or cooling performance or efficiency
- Higher energy bills without extra usage
- New, unpleasant odors, particularly musty or mildew-like smells
- Excessive amounts of dirt or dust throughout the home
If you have noticed any of these or other signs that it’s time to schedule air duct cleaning, reach out to Robison to request a free health and safety assessment (HSA). During this initial assessment, we can inspect your home’s air ducts and determine whether they should be professionally cleaned.
At Robison, we will take all the proper steps to ensure the continued comfort, health, and safety of you and your family. During this process, we’ll open all doors and ports so we can thoroughly examine the entire system. Our staff will then check for asbestos, as this material must first be handled by specialized inspectors.
If there is no asbestos found by our team, we will then protect your carpet and furniture during our cleaning. Next, we will dislodge dust particles with our professional tools, such as soft-bristled brushes for fiberglass duct boards. We will remove these particles before finally sealing and re-insulating any holes so that they are airtight.
