Birmingham, AL Air Duct Cleaning Services
ou may not realize it, but the air in your home is actually full of millions upon millions of microscopic particles. Some of these particles are harmless. Others, like dust, dirt, pollen, viruses, bacteria and mold, are not. These are lung irritants, allergens and infectious agents, all of which lower your quality of life. The reason you’re not sick, sneezing or coughing all the time is that these contaminants are typically dispersed to the point where your body can easily defend against them. However, there is one time when this is not the case.
A lot of these contaminants tend to build up in your ducts, where they are protected from usual cleaning efforts. Then, when you turn on a forced air system, a large dose of contaminants is blown around the house. This is when you are likely to get sick or notice other symptoms. The best way to prevent this problem is to have your ducts cleaned at least once every two years. Air Conditioning Experts provides comprehensive air duct cleaning services. Call us today for more information, or to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians.

The Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Air duct cleaning helps remove contaminants from your home, improving your indoor air quality. As significant contaminant buildup can also insulate your ducts, air duct cleaning can also help improve the efficiency of your forced air systems. Conducting air duct cleaning even once every couple of years is enough to reap substantial benefits from the process. This is especially beneficial for people with compromised immune systems, allergies or even those who get sick more often during flu season. Everyone can benefit in a real, tangible way from air duct cleaning.
What Happens During Air Duct Cleaning
The actual process of air duct cleaning depends largely on the type of ducts you have in your home. If you have the traditional sheet metal ductwork, then the process is fairly easy. All of the duct vents are sealed, save for one. Then a blower door sucks all the contaminants out of the ducts and through that one vent for disposal. If you have a different kind of duct, like flex duct, roto brushes are used to manually clean out your ducts. Your duct cleaning technician will evaluate which solution is called for at the beginning of the process.
