Frequently Asked Air Duct Cleaning Questions
How frequently should the air ducts in a home or business be cleaned?
Several factors come into play when determining how often your HVAC system and air ducts should be cleaned. Some things that may lead a customer to choose more frequent cleanings or necessitate immediate cleaning include smokers in the structure, pets that shed dander and hair, water contamination, incidents of HVAC damage, residents or visitors with allergies or asthma, home renovations, and new home construction.
Does K&M use antimicrobial chemicals for air duct cleaning?
Antimicrobial chemicals are not included with our standard air duct cleaning service. However, in cases where the air ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects, mold, viruses, or bacteria, our duct cleaning teams can apply an antimicrobial agent to decontaminate your ductwork and HVAC system.
Will air duct cleaning reduce our energy bills?
Research by the EPA has shown that HVAC system cleaning may increase efficiency by removing debris and contaminants from essential components of the system. Clean HVAC systems are less likely to fail, will last longer, and operate more efficiently.
When is professional air duct sanitizing and disinfecting necessary?
It is not necessary to sanitize your air ducts in all circumstances. It is a good idea to consider sanitizing your air ducts if:
- Someone in your home has health concerns.
- You have pets in your home.
- Your ductwork has an unpleasant odor.
- There have been leaks or there is water damage in the air duct system.
- Mold, bacteria, viruses, and fungi are or have been in your duct system.
Are air duct sanitizing and disinfecting services safe?
Our experienced air duct cleaning techs follow a process to disinfect your home’s ductwork safely. Our disinfectants have the lowest possible EPA toxicity rating for antimicrobial products.
How can the effectiveness of an air duct cleaning service be ascertained?
The best way to make sure that the air duct cleaning service you purchased was effective in removing contaminants from your air ducts is to inspect them visually. If any debris, dander, hair, or dust is still visible in your ductwork or HVAC system, the cleaning service was not effective in accomplishing its objective, debris-free ductwork. Our customers are welcome to perform their own visual inspections of our work or watch as we complete the service to see the dirt being removed and their system’s components being thoroughly cleaned.
Does K&M hire employees or use contractors to perform air duct/HVAC cleaning services?
Every person representing K&M Steam Cleaning at your home is an employee of K&M. Our duct cleaning team will arrive at your home in a company vehicle, wearing a K&M Steam Cleaning uniform. K&M does not hire independent contractors.
