Duct Cleaning Ensures Clean Air, Steady Airflow

A clean, well-kept HVAC system is vital for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.

This in turn can result in many different health problems including aggravating respiratory problems including asthma and allergies. An easy way to avoid excess dust and contamination is to schedule certified duct cleaning services. By seeking professional duct cleaning in Birmingham, you will help make sure your home comfort system is clear of obstructions and contaminants.

What Does Professional Duct Cleaning Entail?

A detailed cleaning should involve every aspect of your ventilation to provide maximum benefits. Your technician should clean the air ducts, the vent openings and grilles, and even your HVAC system’s air handler. Most of the air indoors circulates throughout the ductwork at some point, which means particulate matter and contaminants can spread everywhere if ignored. Furthermore, it isn’t always easy to access hidden air ducts, so professional-grade cleaning often uses dedicated tools and equipment able to remove dirt, debris and other pollutants from the furthest segments of your ventilation. Let’s walk through what you should expect from duct cleaning in Birmingham.

  • Carry out an in-depth inspection: Before we get to work, it’s beneficial to have a better understanding of how much debris is inside your ventilation system. The process starts with a detailed inspection so we have time to recognize any clogs, leaks or other specific concerns. We’ll explore inside every air duct as well as the return and supply vents. If something is too deep for us to reach manually, cameras can be used to finish the inspection.
  • Reduce the ductwork’s air pressure: While we utilize strong suction to draw out dust and pollutants trapped inside the ventilation, it helps to make the environment of the ductwork more conducive to the cleaning process. We seal up the vents and attach the vacuum to your air handler, generating negative air pressure and allowing us to clear out as much debris as we can.
  • Scrub vents and registers to unlodge dirt and debris: Things like humidity and microbes can make some buildup more challenging to get rid of. All vent openings are unsealed and scrubbed with tools like brushes and compressed air. This helps break down and remove old debris, making it easier for the vacuum.
  • Clean any other ventilation accessories: Some parts of your HVAC system aren’t officially a part of the ventilation, but might still have an impact on airflow and your indoor air quality. We’ll clean or replace the air filter and clean the outdoor unit’s condensate drainage system.

Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning


Enhances indoor air quality

A duct cleaning from trained pros can help to eliminate pollutants like dust, pollen and pet dander from the HVAC system. This helps alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms and might even help you stay healthy.


Increases energy efficiency

Cleaning the ductwork improves the flow of air in your HVAC system, lowering the strain on your heating and cooling equipment. You could see lower energy bills immediately following a professional cleaning. If you are still dealing with weak airflow, consider a dedicated ventilation system.


Reduces HVAC repair costs

As time goes by, dirt and debris gathers on delicate or key components of your HVAC system. Trying to avoid cleaning entirely may lead to more severe wear and tear, which could even ruin the component prematurely. Cleaning the ducts keeps debris from negatively impacting your equipment, which in turn can help prevent breakdowns and lengthen the life span of your HVAC system.


Resolves unpleasant odors:

Struggling with musty or stale smells coming from your HVAC system recently? Warm, humid conditions inside ductwork encourages mold and mildew spores to take root. Professional duct cleaning can extract many microorganisms, ridding you of that moldy smell. If you need other options for dealing with microbes, try installing a Germicidal UV light in the ventilation.
