Top Tips To Choose The Right Air Duct Cleaning Company

4/21/2022 (Permalink)

Routinely, both homes and commercial buildings need air duct cleaning. One air duct cleaning company may accomplish this differently than another company, however. The better you comprehend the differences, the more likely you are to hire the company that's appropriate for your needs. Rather than simply picking a company at random, it pays to do a little research and know the right answers to certain questions.

So, here are the questions to ask when hiring an air duct cleaning company.

How Much Will it Cost?

If price is a consideration, ask for an estimate before the job is booked. Once you are satisfied with the expected costs, ask the following questions if you want to know the true value of a company.

What Results Can I Expect From Cleaning HVAC Vents?

You should see less dust once your home’s HVAC vents have been cleaned. With better airflow, you may even see a dip in your utility bills. Odors could lessen after vent cleaning, as well.

In some cases, if respiratory issues were occurring before the cleaning, the sufferer may notice improvement afterward.

Does the Company Have Certifications and Qualifications?

If the company you're considering has NADA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) certification, all the better. Find out if they also have certification for mold remediation, should you run across a mold issue. Certification generally means that a company has invested money and time into professionalism and training.

How Does the Air Duct Cleaning Company Carry Out its Job?

Find out precisely what it is the company plans on doing and how it will accomplish the task. Example: Ask if the evaporator coil will be cleaned? If you get a blank stare or several seconds of silence, be forewarned! The results of the service can be greatly impacted by this very critical component.

Entering crawl spaces is likely going to be necessary for this service. If the company you’re talking to doesn't do crawl spaces, there could be a problem. Another question to ask is whether they will pull the blower to appropriately execute the cleaning project. Again, if they can't answer you right away, move on to another company.

What Type of Equipment is Used?

The shop vac that you use in your home doesn't provide half the power that is required by equipment used in professional vent cleaning. A minimum of 5000 CFM capacity should be used for residential duct systems. Find out about the vacuum equipment the company uses and its cubic feet of air per minute.
