RotoBrush Duct Cleaning
Dust bunnies … in the air ducts?
What is your family breathing? The Environmental Protection Agency has ranked poor indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks for public health multiple years in a row. Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful for you and your family to breathe. Each time your heating and cooling system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen and bacteria throughout the air inside your home.
Indoor Air Quality facts:
- The EPA has ranked indoor air quality as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health.
- More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. According to Total Health and Better Health magazine, 1 out of 4 people who suffer from allergies, do so, due to the fungi and bacteria in the air duct system.
- Indoor air is 2-5 times worse than outdoor air.
We inspect your duct work to show you what you’re breathing
Our technicians use a video inspection system to evaluate your home’s duct work. We look for dirt, debris, animal droppings, mold, moisture, and more to determine whether cleaning is necessary to improve the quality of your home’s air. We also inspect the joints and junctions of your duct system. Any connections that are not sealed or improperly joined can cause your heated or cooled air to leak into your attic and/or crawl space. This also means your utility bill is higher than it should be.
How your ducts are cleaned makes a difference
There are two ways to effectively clean your duct work: the negative air method and the brush and vac method. The negative air method involves blocking off all your air returns and vents, then cutting a hole in your duct work. A large hose is attached to the hole and a truck-mounted vacuum sucks out the debris. This method works, but can leave caked-on material behind.
We use the system that homeowners prefer 3 to 1
The Rotobrush brush and vacuum method scrubs your duct work with an anti-microbial brush while it vacuums up debris.
Here’s what we do: We start the process by removing all of your register covers and cleaning them thoroughly to remove dirt, grime and other contaminants. Next, our technician will feed a hose with a rotating brush head into your duct work and the real cleaning begins.
After the ducts are scrubbed clean, we fog them with an EPA-recommended antimicrobial mist that leaves a pleasant mint smell behind.
