Clean Air Ducts for Healthier Homes

This is something that could build up slowly in most homes or offices. There may be a number of worrying indications. There could be constant stale air. Coughs, cold and allergies may start increasing. This could all be pointing in the same direction. The air ventilation system really needs cleaning and kept clean. The answers could well be found. Portland air duct cleaning company have the expertise, equipment and experience of dealing with all these cleaning problems.

Climate

The North West of the United States has a warm mild damp climate along the Pacific coast. The winters could be cold, but these are ideal conditions for mold and mildew to develop.

Potential Health Problems

The dust and particles “housed” in air ducts can be blown back into the home. These can exasperate problems with the sinuses. Mold spores, pollen, and dust can trigger a lengthy allergic reaction. These could also cause an asthma attack. People that suffer from asthma will be highly susceptible to an attack if these conditions are not improved. There are allergens lurking in a dirty system, but there could also be bacteria, viruses, and fungi. These could give rise to respiratory infections.

Apart from all the dirt and debris that may have come from the house, there could well be the dead bodies of birds, rodents and other animals that have found their way into ducting systems. Also consider the huge number of dust mites that can be found in very small areas of dust. All of these can harbor harmful bacteria, fungi, and molds.

A Drain on the Finances.

A dirty system with blockages and restrictions will be an inefficient system. If the HVAC gets progressively encrusted as a whole, then more strain will be put on the system. This will cause an increase in the use of energy and eventually breaks down in the system. These could be costly to fix as well.

Cleaning Services

So what services do the Portland air duct cleaning company offer?

The cleaning starts with a hose running from a special truck into the ducting systems. This is a power vacuum system connected directly to a home or office. The whole HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system can be initially cleaned using this setup.

Then every vent and internal air register is thoroughly cleaned with a special cleaning device. This will be all of the vents and grills around the whole system. Special brushes are used to remove all the encrusted dirt and muck that has accumulated in the ducts over a period of time. Because a vacuum system is used, none of this will be blown back or enter the home or office. All of these contaminates are sucked back into the vacuum truck.

The whole system is cleaned. This includes all the HVAC ducting, the HVAC unit, evaporator coil, and blower. Vent covers are removed, cleaned thoroughly, and then replaced.

Willard Power Vac have been providing this service since 1975 in the Pacific North West. Dryer vent cleaning and chimney cleaning services are also provided.
