Air Duct Cleaning in Boca Raton
Why do I need my ducts cleaned?
Air Conditioning Boca Raton estimates that most people spend 60 – 90% of their time indoors. The top reasons for emergency room visits are asthma attacks and allergy attacks. We breathe in polluted air everyday. Whether its going outside where car emissions pervade our air or going to a doctor’s office where bacteria, colds and even the flu are present- polluted air is all around us. Did you know that children breathe double the amount of air an average adult breathes? Or that even one millimeter of dirt decreases the efficiency of your air conditioning unit by 21%. 90% of air conditioning and heating systems fail due to poor maintenance and poor cleanliness. The average 4 bedroom house collects 40 pounds of dust per year. These are just some of the reasons why duct cleaning is very important. Another reason is the health benefit. Most of all the contaminants that affect our health, such as bacteria, fungi, microbial growth and small dust gets trapped in the duct system.

How do you clean the duct?
Air Conditioning Boca Raton has two services for air duct cleaning. The first is basic. First we close all the vents in your home, then we use a high powered HEPA vacuum and connect it to the main duct of the home. It gives out positive and negative electron charges which loosen and free all the loose dirt, dust, and debris from all of the air ducts in your home. There is no need to hook the machine up to every duct because the vacuum has the power to suck up to 15 vents in a single use. This can take anywhere from 20 min to an hour and a half depending on the intensity of the cleaning.
The second procedure is an intensive cleaning. The intensive clean is very similar to the basic air duct cleaning. The difference is, the HEPA vacuum gets connected to every duct and we open every vent individually. In addition, we sanitize the duct system to ensure all bacteria and fungi are eliminated and or removed from your home’s air duct system.
How often should you have your air ducts cleaned?
Depends on these factors- you should get your air ducts cleaned every 6 months if these factors apply to you:
- Smoker resident or previous owners were smokers
- Renovation or repair inside the home
- Very high allergens
- You just moved in
- Never had it done before
If none of these factors apply to you, then you should have your ducts cleaned once every 1 to 3 years.
