The month of September is an interesting one when it comes to your home HVAC system. During the beginning of the month it can be hot enough for the cooling system to still be used, while at the end of the month, you’ll turn it and keep it off as the fall weather rolls in. This is the time when you should have your ductwork inspected so you can have clean ducts before the heating system is turned on. Before you call your local air duct cleaning company, ask yourself these questions:
How does your company perform the cleaning services?
The company that is hired should follow the guidelines of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). It’s important to clean every component thoroughly, including: supply ducts, return ducts, registers, grills, and the access panel. While any company can claim to be the best, some might not clean the system in its entirety. Missing a section of ductwork could result in excess dust and debris being blown out of the duct and into the house. Also, truck mounted equipment with the addition of portable vacuums will show that you have hired a quality air duct cleaning company.
Tell me about your company and your employees.
Hiring a younger company with a lack of experience and accreditations could be a risky move. Look for one that has been in business for a relatively decent length of time. Make sure each technician that is performing the service is properly trained to follow all guidelines and has sufficient experience. Besides the NADCA guidelines, a professional air duct cleaning company should also follow EPA guidelines. Any products used should be organic and should not include any harmful pollutants or toxins.
What kind of price range am I working with?
Any cleaning service that offers an amazingly low price can turn out to be a scam or a bad quality service that can do more harm than good. It is better to pay more and know your system is cleaned properly than to pay a lower price and need to have another service immediately thereafter.
