What is air duct cleaning?

Indoor air pollution should be an important issue for any family or business owner. Regular cleaning of heating and air conditioning systems should always be a part of any standard maintenance.

Air duct cleaning requires many parts to be cleaned and sanitized. The supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing and even the air handling unit housing itself.

These parts must be cleaned regularly, because over time they will become contaminated with dust, pollen and other particles. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased exponentially. Mold spores can be released into the home or office, causing allergic reactions or other serious health risks.

Failure to clean even a single component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system. There are standards that have been established by industry associations concerning air duct cleaning. HVAC NYC uses specialised tools to dislodge dirt and other debris, then vacuumed thoroughly.

We also offer chemical biocide application, designed to kill microbiological contaminants. Chemical treatments (sealants or other encapsulants) applied to the inside surfaces of the air ducts and equipment housings is another option as well. Such treatment may control mold growth or prevent the release of dirt particles or fibers from ducts.
