Signs you need to clean your air ducts and vents
If you have lived in your home for 3 years or more and you have never cleaned your air ducts, then it is time. Depending on the number of people in your home, and whether you have children and/or pets, your air ducts need to be cleaned every 1 – 3 years.
Reasons to have your air ducts cleaned:
Improves Indoor Air Quality – Indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air. By having your air ducts cleaned, you are removing many of the contaminants that cause pollution in your home.
Reduces Irritants and Allergens in the air – Air ducts often contain harmful contaminants and microorganisms (like pet dander, dead skin, bacteria, pollen, mold, etc.) Those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory complications can be particularly sensitive to these airborne particles. Regular duct cleaning stops the spread of irritating contaminants in your home.
Improves Heating and Cooling Efficiency – Your home’s ductwork and vents tend to accumulate a buildup of dust and grime over time. This can restrict the airflow from your heating and cooling system. The system is forced to work harder to heat and cool your home. This lowers the efficiency of your furnace, swamp cooler, or air conditioner.
Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors – The smells that come from animals, household cleaning products, mold, tobacco use, and even food are getting spread through your house by your duct system. Dust and mold can also add to a musty smell in the home. Cleaning your vents helps remove these odors so that your home smells fresher.
Creates a cleaner living environment –New Mexico is a dusty place, and this dust gets spread through your house by your air duct system. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned reduces the dust circulating through your home. This means less interior cleaning and dusting.
Helps Everyone Breathe Easier – Even if no one in your home suffers from allergies or respiratory problems, everyone prefers to breathe clean air. Giving your air ducts a little TLC helps everyone to breathe easier.
The TLC Duct Cleaning Process
1) Schedule your duct cleaning appointment
At TLC, we don’t just clean your air ducts. We restore your heating and cooling system to pristine cleanliness. Our technicians are trained to provide the finest service. We use Hypervac equipment to ensure your vents and ducts are flawless.
You can schedule an appointment by calling (505) 761-9644 or scheduling online. You can expect your duct cleaning appointment to take 3 – 4 hours, depending on the size of your home and the number of vents in your house.
2) Your TLC technician will turn on your HVAC system
The technician begins by turning on your heating and cooling system. This pulls any airborne contaminants to the vents as they are being cleaned.
3) Your TLC technician will clean every vent individually
Each vent is removed, inspected, and cleaned separately. While this is happening, the other vents are covered so that dust and debris doesn’t blow into the house. Once the other vents are properly sealed, we use a ball crawler (like a power washer, but with air instead of water) to push all the dirt and debris out of the air ducts and into a special vacuum. The contaminants are sucked into our duct truck by this vacuum.
4) We clean the area around each vent afterwards
We make sure to clean the area around each vent we service, but fine dust can still settle in other places in your home. We suggest doing a thorough house cleaning after having your air ducts serviced.
5) Please be aware that the duct cleaning process is noisy
The air duct cleaning process is noisy because of our high-powered vacuum. If the noise will be troublesome to anyone in the household (children, pets, etc.), we suggest scheduling it at a time when the noise will not be a problem for them.
6) Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed
TLC operates on a 100% Make It Right Guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your duct cleaning service, give us a call and we will be happy to make it right.
