Most people are uneducated when it comes time to picking a company to clean the ductwork in their house. Not all duct cleaning companies are the same. There are multiple different procedures companies use to clean ductwork, but there is only one procedure to ensure a proper, thorough job done.
Metro Heating & Cooling is proud to offer the best method of duct cleaning; source removal, supported by NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association). Source removal is a method of duct cleaning that cleans and removes particles from the ducts in a house without allowing them into the home owner’s breathing air.
Metro Heating & Cooling uses the highest quality equipment to clean your air ducts,
thoroughly removing a variety of contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and dust. Our technicians take the time to get the job done the right way. During a duct cleaning, a legitimate business like Metro Heating & Cooling uses devices to agitate the particles in your ducts while a large vacuum system pulls the particles to a collection device. If this process were not done correctly, it could lead to the release of dust, pollen, mold spores, and other airborne particles into the air of the house. This would drastically raise the levels of these particulates in your breathing air, and require immediate clearing in order to prevent any health problems.
Please be careful of who you hire to duct clean your house, as some methods could actually make the air quality in your home worse rather than better. Also, please remember to question the $100 advertisements. Do you think you will get a thorough duct cleaning for only $100?
Good things to ask before hiring a company to clean are:
- How long will the procedure take? (It should take a minimum of 3 hours for an average size home)
- Do you take the vacuum off of the truck? (this determines how strong of a pull you will have to take dust out-the further away the vacuum is, less suction.)
- What do you use to agitate and clean the ductwork?
- Is my technician certified in NADCA cleaning standards?
It is recommended that you have your system cleaned every 5-7 years or after a remodel. If you have pets in your home, more frequent cleaning is recommended. Please call Metro Heating & Cooling to have your ducts cleaned efficiently, safely, and at the best price possible!
