Montreal Air Duct Cleaning
Air duct cleaning is an effective procedure of removing dust, debris, vermin and other contamination from the air ducts in the HVAC system. It should be performed only by a professional air duct cleaning company under the regulations of The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).
Air ducts are an essential part of a home’s microclimate. Although HVAC air filters are the final frontier, the way the air travels to them is just as important. Over time, air ducts may accumulate household dust, construction debris and/or results of animal/insect infestation. This might happen due to improper installation, sealing, damage or bad maintenance which compromised the integrity of the ductwork.
Although research claims that even if dust from the ducts gets into the airflow, it does not significantly influence the indoor air quality, at the same time, dust is a perfect environment for the development of microbes, mold growth and a source of multiple allergens. All these microscopic particles can easily travel with the airflow and invade your living space causing various health conditions, including allergies and respiratory problems. Some mold spores can also release toxins that might be dangerous for people with low immune systems and people prone to allergies.
Proper air duct cleaning helps get rid of these potential risks and gives homeowners a peace of mind. Air duct cleaning specialists differ in views on how often the air duct cleaning procedures should be performed. Although there is no certain recommended regularity, there are three main conditions that require air duct cleaning in the majority of cases:
- Mold growth. If moisture impacts the ductwork and gets in contact with organic dust, mold growth is almost inevitable. Even though the air is constantly moving in the ducts, dust gets strongly attached to the ducts, and mold colonies can grow in the inner layers of dirt and debris. Mold spores can then be moved by the airflow into the living areas and may pose health threats to their inhabitants.
- Vermin (rodent, insects, etc.) infestation. The results of vermin infestation can also be particularly toxic, cause odour and health issues. When noticed, they need to be removed as soon as possible by a professional air duct cleaning company.
- Construction/renovations. Accumulation of construction dust and debris is a definite reason for air duct cleaning. Debris can significantly block the airflow in the ducts, which might impact the efficiency of the HVAC system and noticeably increase energy spending.
The process of air duct cleaning requires full attention and accuracy; failure to clean one of the system’s components may compromise the entire procedure. That’s why Canada’s Restoration Services uses up-to-date equipment to physically remove dirt, debris and other contaminants, and high-performance HEPA-filtered vacuums to prevent even the smallest particles from entering the living space.
