Clean air ducts are critical for maintaining healthy indoor air quality. In a typical home, contaminants such as pollen, dander, and dust are pulled into the HVAC system. These contaminants begin to accumulate in the ductwork, air handler and coils as the air is re-circulated – which takes place 5 to 7 times per day on average. Over time, without proper cleaning the same HVAC system that we rely on for comfort can instead begin producing an environment of toxic air, causing problems for people with respiratory health conditions or environmental allergies. This is why you should have your air duct system inspected and/or cleaned at least every 2-5 years. At Octagon Cleaning & Restoration, our experienced technicians can make this process easy and fast, and provide you with the cleanest air ducts possible.
What is the Objective of Home Air Duct Cleaning?
The objective of source-removal home air duct cleaning is the complete physical removal of dirt, debris and other contaminants from the ductwork. According to university studies, this is recognized as the most acceptable form of cleaning and decontamination of home air duct systems.
What is Source-Removal Air Duct Cleaning?
Source-removal duct cleaning uses a technically advanced, high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) filtrated vacuum system that places the duct system under vacuum or negative pressure. Our duct cleaning vacuums collect debris and contaminate from the duct and vents the air/debris outside to our trailer mounted vacuum system. We also use portable machines for the hard-to-reach areas that collect particulates and vent HEPA-filtered air back into the environment.
How Does Air Duct Cleaning Work in Maine?
Specifically, debris is loosened and dislodged by compressed air and specially designed tools that work within different types of duct systems. Source-removal duct cleaning agitates and loosens the dirt from the duct system. This creates a push/pull effect that thoroughly cleans the ductwork and safely removes the debris into our vacuum units. All registers are cleaned as well. Our experienced technicians can make the process fast and provide you with the cleanest air ducts possible.
