Duct cleaning is the process of cleaning the inside of ducts and giving them a fresh start. We recommend that many people have their ducts cleaned because they have specific issues, such as respiratory problems or seasonal allergies. We also recommend cleaning under certain circumstances. Dirt, mold, fungus, animal dander and fecal matter, and construction debris can be present in your ductwork. Reach out to Mr Duct Cleaning in Gilbert, AZ today to learn more.
We provide cleaning for each of the vents and trunk lines in your system. We use negative pressure vacuum collection and other equipment, which will remove the debris from your home entirely, not just blow it out the ducts into your home. Some are handheld, and others are truck mounted. While the truck-mounted units are more powerful, the handheld ones are more portable. A variety of pneumatic equipment, mirrors, drones, and other items are used to help the process.
Each situation is different, and some types of jobs will lend themselves to one kind of equipment over another. We will use the equipment that is right for your circumstances.
Dust in ductwork can cause problems for you and your home, including health problems, dirty rooms and surfaces, and unpleasant smells.
Ductwork cleaning requires specialized tools and equipment to be performed correctly. Why suffer needlessly? If you've noticed any of these issues, let us provide the service that you need to correct it!
Here are some signs your ductwork might need professional attention:
- Sneezing, coughing, congestion
- A musty odor
- An obvious cockroach, bird, bat, or rodent presence in your home.
- A spike in energy costs
- Visible dirt blowing from the registers
- Increased dust in the home
After years of excellent service, the ductwork in your home or business may leak. Leakage can be caused by vibration, by extremes in temperature within the ducts, by rust, and other factors. Leaking ductwork reduces the efficiency of your HVAC system, raises energy costs, and lowers the comfort level.
Yet, if the basic ductwork system is still in good shape, it's possible to restore the ductwork's full function by sealing the ducts. Resealing ductwork is performed using several methods. One highly effective way that we offer is aerosol duct sealing.
Aerosol duct sealing can be performed in less than a day, by using sophisticated equipment to blow sealing material into the existing ductwork. It works without damaging the rest of the system or contaminating your home. The technician can show the customer the improvement in the HVAC performance as a result of aerosol duct sealing.
Sealing your ductwork can add years of safe, efficient performance to your existing ductwork. We are proud to be a part of this sustainable, cost-effective option in HVAC restoration.
Duct sealing is performed when the ductwork system has leaks or is no longer efficient, but still has a solid construction and no significant damage. A customer can watch as the technician monitors the leakage amount in a ductwork system and the improvement in the system performance following professional duct sealing. A customer can expect duct sealing to return his ductwork to full functionality. This performance will continue for years into the future, offering better comfort and a more efficient system.
The ductwork in your home should always be replaced if it is poorly designed. The design is a huge factor in determining the effectiveness of the whole system. This can cause the homeowner or business to put money into a new HVAC system, only to discover the added pressure makes the system even more inefficient because the added pressure causes leaks.
Ductwork should also be replaced if it is damaged, crushed, twisted, kinked, or otherwise restricted.
Moldy ductwork isn't safe and should be replaced. Moldy ductwork can occur as the result of heavy condensation, a roof or plumbing leak or other means water or moisture can breach the system.
Age and deterioration is also a reason to replace ductwork. This is particularly true if your Mr. Duct Cleaning technician tells you that resealing your ducts is not a viable option. We will never sell you a new system if the old one is still viable.
When a system that is operating properly doesn't heat or cool efficiently, a problem with the ductwork should be suspected. Do you have rooms in your home that are consistently uncomfortable? Ductwork that heats and cools properly offers even temperatures throughout the home or building, without hot or cold spots.
Air quality can be affected by ductwork that has been infested by insects or vermin, damaged by smoke or mold, or contaminated by particulates such as construction materials. Having pets can introduce fur and dander into the system, which can also lower air quality. Even using a poorly-fitting filter can make ductwork dirty and indoor air quality poor.
Ductwork that is contaminated by any means creates a high risk for asthmatics and those with allergies or other respiratory ailments. This is particularly true if ductwork is old or has been compromised by mold, pests, or even leaks that have allowed insulation or even asbestos from tapes and wraps into the air.
Ductwork provides clean, comfortable air to your home or place of business. Taking care of it is a way to keep your family and employees safe from airborne contaminants.
