We write often about the importance of indoor air quality, and one way to improve the quality of the air in your home is to have your air ducts cleaned. Some people like to tackle home improvement projects on their own, and we don’t blame them. It just feels good to get your hands dirty and not have to hire outside help.
However, air duct cleaning isn’t a DIY project. Let’s take a look at the reasons why:
A good air duct cleaning company will consistently invest in the most modern technology and air duct cleaning equipment. We at EnviroGreen Boston use brushes, air whips and compressed air nozzles to agitate, and we employ continuous negative pressure or HEPA-Filtered vacuumed to prevent the spread of contaminants. The same cannot be said for a residential vacuum cleaner.
Access to ductwork should be made through existing openings, like return grills and duct end caps. Unfortunately, you’re not always able to reach inside through these access points. A qualified technician will be able to create service openings and subsequent closures.
It’s often difficult to get something right the first time around. One reason why air duct cleaning isn’t a DIY project is simply because most of us don’t even know where to begin. EnviroGreen Boston’s staff has more than 50 years of experience, which should provide you peace of mind!
In our honest and professional opinion, air duct cleaning just isn’t a DIY project. We implore you to think twice before taking on this task on your own!
