Why should I clean my Air Ducts?
You may be asking yourself “why should I consider getting an air duct cleaning?”. Well a good answer would be for the benefit of your health. As of now, you could be breathing in pollutants from inside your own home! Pollutants such as mold, dust, insects, pollen, rodent feces, and much more. Since 1990, the EPA has consistently ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health. Those mostly affected by this are asthma and allergy sufferers, children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with a respiratory disease. Also, due to how dirty a HVAC system is, it needs to work harder in order to push air around. This eventually ends up costing you more money in your utility bill.
How are my Air Ducts cleaned?
Luckily, Hernandez is here to help! Through our "push-pull" cleaning process, Hernandez attaches a high powered vacuum to your furnace to "pull" dust, and a the same time using compressed air to "push" dust and debris back to the vacuum. Whiles this is happening, we are using compressed air tools that are very efficient at moving the debris inside the ducts down to the vacuum source and of course we use HEPA filters to keep the dust in the machine and only clean air is returned to your home.
What is cleaned with my Hernandez Air Duct Cleaning Service?
At Hernandez, we clean your Main Trunk Line, Furnace, Vents, Returns and Vent Covers/Registers.
BONUS: After the ducts are cleaned, we apply a sanitizer to kill any microbial items not seen by the naked eye.
How much does it cost?
At Hernandez, we offer FREE ESTIMATES in person or we may give you an estimated rate over the phone based on the square footage of the home. Once the Air Duct Technician arrives, he will confirm final cost and if you agree, he will proceed with the service
How long does it take?
The time it takes to perform an Air Duct Cleaning Service varies depending on how many Unit Systems the home has. The larger the home, the more likely you will have 2 or maybe 3 Unit Systems.
For example : A 1-Unit system home may take about 2-3 hours to clean, but as for 2-Unit System, that may take about 3-5 hours to clean.
When should I clean my Air Ducts?
Once every 3-5 years for maintenance.
If there is an odor coming from the ventilation system (not the floors or walls).
If there has been water damage that occurred in the duct work, which would cause sediment build up in the system.
After home renovations due to debris from construction.
If there are pets that shed, because pet hair may get into the ventilation system.
If there is smoking in the home.
If there is a burning smell in the home, after the furnace starts.
