Is HVAC cleaning beneficial for IAQ maintenance?

For the last 30 years of research, not enough evidence on HAVC cleaning extra benefits was found. Though, no one can deny three facts:

Fact 1: The air quality of our planet is getting less day by day in big industrial cities and drawn by the wind to the neighborhoods. Green Ductors are operating in NYC and NJ; both areas are in the zone of most risk compared to most European cities.

Fact 2: The Indoor pollutants’ concentration in the air is five times higher than outdoors. Knowing the statistically proven 90% of the daytime that the US citizens spend indoors – the final picture doesn’t seem pleasant.

Fact 3: Out of every four kids in the US these days, one has asthma. Which makes it 25% of the new populations coming to this planet. And if Air Ducts Cleaning wasn’t showing much of a benefit to human health in the 1990s, it did in 2020.

Also, with the previous Duct cleaning methods, the situation of higher contaminants post-cleaning indoor levels than the pre-cleaning levels as usual. With new methods and tools for cleaning, this doesn’t happen anymore.

Routine steps for HVAC cleaning at home?

Recommendations to avoid the need for costly air duct cleaning:

  1. Maintain good housekeeping.
  2. Change HVAC filters regularly, this can be easily done by yourself
  3. Book coils and clover professional cleaning once a year
  4. If you’re in the middle of the building renovation period, seal the ductwork to prevent dust and debris from entering the unit.
  5. Consider routine (once in 3 months together with filters change) inspections of ductwork

Steps to choose an HVAC cleaning company
Check listings references, make sure the company is NADCA Certified. This proves the professionalism of Air Systems Cleaning Specialists. NADCA Certified technicians provide the service according to the NADCA standards and continue education. Check if the company has a license and offers insurance. Request estimates from at least two HVAC cleaning companies to compare. The whole house $99 duct cleaning special – is a 100% fraud. If a deal seems too good to be true, most of the time, it is. So stick to your intuition. NADCA Certified technicians won’t do $99 cleaning for 12 ducts and bargain.
