DIY vent cleaning

Is it realistic to expect myself to clean my own air ducts?

In terms of specifics, cleaning air ducts is not a do-it-yourself project. It necessitates the use of gear such as a high-powered vacuum and rotary brushes, both of which you are unlikely to have in your garage.

Your home’s lungs are its heating and cooling ducts. Clean air enhances the performance of the ducts in the same way that it improves the function of your lungs. There is considerable debate, however, over how clean your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) ducts should be.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ductwork dust is less hazardous than chemicals emitted by cooking, cleaning, smoking, or even walking across the carpet. Unlike bookcases and furniture, HVAC ducts are part of a sealed system and do not collect dust. Filters in the furnace and air conditioner help to keep impurities out of the HVAC system. This is why regular cleaning of your HVAC filters is your first — and best — line of protection.

If mold is forming on the sheet metal of your ducting, you should take extra precautions. While you can’t see mold within the ducts, smells, wet filters, or wall insulation may suggest its existence. Mold may be discovered in your ductwork by an HVAC expert.

Rodents, insects, and other vermin can become polluted in ducts. This is a critical issue that needs prompt intervention by doctors. Vermin droppings and dander quickly create an unsanitary atmosphere in your house.

In terms of specifics, cleaning air ducts is not a do-it-yourself project. It necessitates the use of instruments such as a high-powered vacuum and rotary brushes, which you are unlikely to have in your garage. An ineffective cleaning method may potentially cause duct damage, causing costly repairs.

The Luxe Ducts Promise

What to expect when you hire us.

After initial contact, we will immediately enter your contact information into our state of the art customer database. Our customer database will send four notifications. The first confirms our appointment, the second is when we are on our way with our estimated arrival time, the third is when the process begins and the last is once we have completed the process. This is when an automatic invoice will be generated. After that, you will receive your immediate confirmation of payment received. 

We ask that any furniture or obstruction in front of the registers or vents are removed so that we may have access. We are a pet friendly company but will be leaving and re-entering your home, so we ask that you secure them. The entire process beginning to end is approximately 4 to 5 hours.

Two technicians wearing a Luxe Ducts uniform, who will be driving a company marked vehicle, will arrive at your home. Upon entering your home they will wear pink booties. We kindly ask that you show us where all the furnace and/or dryer vents are located.

Our team will then prepare your home for the process which means putting masking tape over vents and registers, laying down protective floor runners, as well as corner guards to protect the corners of your walls. 

Luxe Ducts goes to each individual vent, return and trunk lines. We use a high powered speed whip and use high powered gas vacuums to ensure your ducts are perfectly cleaned every time, guaranteed. 

(If this service is added) After the ventilation system is clean, we will fog anti-bacterial sanitizer throughout the entire system to eliminate any minor molding, bacteria and viruses in your ductwork. Once completed we will turn your newly sanitized home back to you.  

We appreciate the feedback! Please leave us a “luxe-urious” review on Better Business Bureau, Google or Yelp.
