If you have noticed an increase in allergens in the air, or that your HVAC system is not running as efficiently in your Spring Hill, Florida, home, the culprit behind the issues could be dirty ductwork. The good news is that a simple duct cleaning can help improve your indoor air quality, help your HVAC run more efficiently, and help improve airflow. When considering whether to have a duct cleaning, you may be wondering what exactly goes on during a duct cleaning.

What Is Duct Cleaning?

Over time dirt, debris, dust, and pet dander can settle into the ductwork in your home. As this debris builds up, it can begin to circulate into the HVAC system as well as the air in your home. A duct cleaning will remove this buildup both inside your ducts and around your vents.

What Occurs During the Duct Cleaning Process?

The entire process involves much more than just cleaning the debris from your air ducts. Your HVAC specialist will inspect your vents and ductwork, determining if there are any leaks, cracks, or damaged vents or returns.

After inspecting the ducts, your technician will perform a thorough cleaning of the entire system, making sure to remove any debris or buildup properly. Parts you can expect to be cleaned include:

  • All the supply and return registers and air ducts
  • Diffusers and grills
  • The blower motor and its housing
  • The heat exchanger
  • The evaporator coil
  • The drain and drain pan.

The cleaning process uses specialized tools that are able to dislodge built-up dirt. Once the cleaning process is complete, the technician will subject each area to a sanitizing process to remove any bacteria and residue left from the initial cleaning.

After sanitization, your technician will replace your filter and run the system to make sure everything is functioning properly.
