Air Duct Cleaning
Professional Air Duct Cleaning
There is some controversy over the benefits of air duct cleaning. Some contractors who offer cleaning do not live up to the standards that are expected of them.
We have reviewed the air duct cleaning guidelines set by the EPA, and strive to meet or exceed them, as well as provide transparency to you, the consumer, so you feel confident knowing that your ducts have been cleaned thoroughly.
It is always best to be an informed consumer. There are benefits of a good cleaning, including improved air circulation, removal of unsightly debris and dust, and the knowledge that the ducts which carry your breathing supply of air are shiny, not crud-covered. Health benefits from air duct cleaning have yet to be established, but personal testimonials from clients indicate they do feel some health benefits.
What to Expect from Professional Air Duct Cleaning
We at Fine Fabric Care are dedicated to ensuring that your needs and wishes are met, providing the best, most thorough cleaning possible. We strive to meet or exceed expectations, as well as provide transparency to you, the consumer, so you feel confident knowing that your ducts have been cleaned thoroughly.
Remote camera inspection
A technician will inspect your air duct vents with a remote camera to review and show you so you can decide if an air duct cleaning is needed.
Rotobrush each register through main trunk
Our technicians begin by cleaning each register and run through the main trunk with a HEPA filtered ROTOBRUSH© machine. What this means for you is that each vent in your house will receive personal attention from the technician, and will be both brushed and vacuumed out thoroughly.
Thorough cleaning for remaining debris
Once each run is cleaned back to the main trunk, our technicians will acquire access to both the cold air and heat sides and use several methods to clean out any remaining debris.
Vacuum and Reseal
The furnace is then vacuumed out, and the system resealed.
How often should I schedule an air duct cleaning?
There are nearly as many different designs of ducting systems as there are houses with forced-air heating. Most systems in town require an air duct cleaning no more often than once every five to seven years unless there are out-of-the-ordinary circumstances. Some systems, particularly those in the country, require more frequent service to remain clean.
If you are installing a new furnace, that is the best time for us to clean your air ducts. We can more readily access the ductwork interior before a new unit is installed.
If you have questions as to the cleanliness of your ducts, give us a call at (406) 782-5339, or visit our contact page to find the most convenient way for you to get ahold of us. We will send a technician with a remote camera over so you can take a look and decide.
Fine Fabric Care’s Air Duct Cleaning FAQs
I have mice! What do I do?
Don’t panic. The first step is to get rid of the infestation. An exterminator, or a few well placed live traps can take care of your problem in a short while. Then call us, and inform us of your problem. We’ll send a technician to clean and sanitize your ducts, and we might even try to find how they got in too.
I get a lot of dust/soot out of my ducts. Will cleaning them help?
Likely. Especially in older houses that used to have (or still have) a wood or coal fireplace, lingering soot can continue its plague for years. We have had good response to this problem from a thorough cleaning of ducts in the past.
How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?
Every 5-7 years.
Can you help us with a bad odor?
Perhaps. The first step to eliminating odor is to remove the source, and cleaning your ducts is just that. We also have an encapsulant we can use to eliminate most – if not all – odors.
