Air Duct EPA Recommendations

Duct-CleaningsmIf not properly installed, maintained, and operated, HVAC components may, over time, become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbial growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home’s living space. These contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Make sure your service provider team (duct cleaning professional and HVAC contractor) will be cleaning all system components and that they are qualified to do so (HVAC contractors require special licensing to work on the mechanical components of your system). Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.

140px-Environmental_Protection_Agency_logo.svgIn addition to cleaning, your service provider (duct cleaning professional) can apply chemical biocides designed to kill microbiological contaminants to the inside of the duct work and to other system components.

The EPA neither establishes duct cleaning standards nor certifies, endorses, or approves duct cleaning companies.

For Your Health

Experts say: “Clean your HVAC System ductwork!”

Let the ductwork cleaning professionals at Dan, Dan the Carpet Man improve your indoor air quality and protect your family’s health and safety. Our comprehensive air duct cleaning system removes dust and debris with state-of-the-art equipment. Our fogging technique used after duct cleaning, kills molds, bacteria, viruses and dust mites.

“Air Duct Cleaning Helps Keep Your Family Safe From Harmful Mold and Bacteria!”

Remember what your A/C filter looked like the last time you changed it? Your air ducts are even worse if you’ve never cleaned them. Our trained technicians will “clean” your Air Ducts using state-of-the-art equipment (see below) then “fog” your HVAC System with an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered, hospital-level disinfectant and deodorizer.

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process will optimize and purify your air entire HVAC system and lower your electric costs. Then you can breathe easier as you enjoy your home more all year long!

Our Air Duct Cleaning Process

We systematically clean from each vent all the way to the next vent so that we get 100% coverage from vent-to-vent. We use well-controlled brushing of duct surfaces in conjunction with vacuum cleaning to dislodge and trap dust and other particles via HEPA filters. We use only soft-bristled brushes for fiberglass duct board, sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass, and flex duct. We take care to protect the ductwork, including sealing and re-insulating any access holes we may have made or used so they are airtight.

airductcleaningWe use a 9-step process to thoroughly clean your air ducts:

  1. Pre-inspection. We inspect the system before cleaning to be sure that there are no asbestos-containing materials (e.g., insulation, register boots, etc.) in the HVAC system.
  2. Site Protection. We protect your carpet and household furnishings during the cleaning process and we clean-up after our work is completed (before we leave your home).
  3. Rotary Brush Cleaning. We remove each and every register (air vent cover) one at a time and then insert our special rotating brushes (engineered safe for all your duct work no matter how old or new) that mechanically clean your duct work.
  4. Integrated Vacuum Cleaning. Our machine’s high-powered vacuum system (located directly behind rotating brushes) instantly traps all of the contaminants dislodged from the interior surfaces of your duct-work in a HEPA Filter (EPA recommended).
  5. Register Replacement. After the ductwork is clean, we wipe clean and carefully re-install the registers (air vent covers).
  6. Intake System. We clean the air returns, the fresh air intake, and other exterior surfaces of the HVAC equipment (we do not open or clean inside mechanical equipment).
  7. Disinfection. We “fog” the entire system with an “EPA” registered, hospital level disinfectant to kill microbial activity including mold, mildew, bacteria, and viruses. This reaches 100% of the air handling system.
  8. Post-cleaning Checklist. We will review our work with you to verify the satisfactorily completion of the cleaning process including the proper replacement of access points.
  9. Video Scanning (optional). We offer video scanning technology to give our technicians and you visual confirmation that your job has been done right!

Verification

How do you know that we cleaned your HVAC System right?

A thorough visual inspection is the best way to verify the cleanliness of your heating and cooling system. All portions of the system should be visibly clean; you should not be able to detect any debris with the naked eye. But to be sure that the job was thorough, we recommend the use remote photography to document conditions inside your ducts (optional 9th step). After completing the job, we show you each component of your system to verify that the job was performed satisfactorily using the EPA-recommended “Post-Cleaning Consumer Checklist” as our guideline.

Our Results

Professional cleaning of your ductwork by Dan, Dan the Carpet Man should be a part of the “routine maintenance program” for your home. Our Air Duct Cleaning Process will optimize and purify your air entire HVAC system and lower your electric costs. Then you can breathe easier as you enjoy your home more all year long!

According to National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the most recognized body for the HVAC Inspection, Maintenance, and Restoration Industry, cleaning your HVAC system’s ductwork improves indoor air quality and results in energy savings.

  • Indoor Air Quality. Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out. Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
  • Energy Savings. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.

Service Fact: Did you know that keeping your HVAC System clean also helps keep your carpet cleaner? You can help prevent “Filtration Soiling” (those ugly black lines around the base-boards and under doorways) by keeping your HVAC system properly maintained (ductwork cleaned and airflow “balanced”).

Our Equipment

rotobrush-4State-of-the-Art Rotobrush® machine cleaning

The Standard Rotobrush® system is complete with a hose and brush that work simultaneously together leaving clean ducts behind. The process begins when the rotating brush works at a pace of 450 rpm to scrub the inside walls of the air ducts. As the debris is loosened, it is then vacuumed up in the nozzle located behind the head of the brush.

Because Rotobrush® is designed to protect the operator as well as the ductwork, the rotating cable is safely tucked away in the hose, so every type of duct application can be cleaned using the system — even flex duct.

Our Approach

We use the cleaning method most recommended in the industry!

Particulates (dust and other small particles) stick or statically cling or to the interior of ductwork. Bacteria, mold, and other harmful biological growth can hide, grow, and thrive in this medium, particularly in the presence of high moisture.

The recommended method for Dryer Vent and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) ductwork cleaning is “Source Removal”, the mechanical cleaning of system components to remove obstructions, debris, dirt and dust.

Mechanical Cleaning involves two key steps:

  • Rotary brushing to loosen the debris inside ductwork and HVAC air handling components.
  • Vacuuming using a high-velocity HEPA filtration system to safely remove debris from the HVAC system. The goal is to reduce contaminants to acceptable levels (industry standard) without re-introducing these contaminants into household air.

Currently the safest and most effective air duct cleaning method utilizes a portable HEPA filtered vacuum coupled with a rotary brush (agitation device). Brush diameter (interchangeable brush heads) is selected by the operator to fit various sizes and shapes of ductwork and vents. Rotary action of the brush head effectively “scours” the interior of ductwork and air handling components as the device is guided through the HVAC system. This technology utilizes a high-velocity vacuum behind the brush to create “lift” for debris removal with HEPA filtration to prevent potential of cross contamination.
