Frequently Asked Questions About Our Air Duct Cleaning Services

Do I need to have my air ducts cleaned if my house is new?

Surprisingly enough, yes. Construction debris is one of the most common types of contamination that we find in air duct systems. Fine particulates, such as drywall dust or sawdust, as well as other materials, can make their way into your system when the construction crews are cleaning up. The only way to thoroughly remove all of these pollutants from your system is through professional cleaning.

Why should I have my air ducts cleaned?

Some of the reasons are: Dirt and debris may collect in your ventilation system blocking ductwork and key components of the furnace, including the evaporator coil and blower. Build-up of these contaminants in the system can restrict airflow causing it to work harder and longer, thus expending more energy. By cleaning the entire HVAC system, you may see an increase in the energy efficiency of your system, which in some cases translates to lower utility bills. These cleanings may also extend the life of your furnace or air conditioning system by reducing wear and tear. For more information click “Why Clean Air Ducts?”

Why should I have my entire system cleaned at the same time?

Unlike many cleaners, Steamatic cleans your entire system, including all supply and return vents, air ducts, as well as furnace coils, blower, drain pan and air filter. By cleaning the whole system, you avoid dirt and debris from areas that weren’t cleaned blowing back into areas that were cleaned as soon as you turn on your furnace or air conditioner. Many other air duct companies will only clean a few vents at a time, or won’t clean the furnace, and the vents end up getting recontaminated because the whole system was not cleaned at one time.

What certifications does Steamatic have for air duct cleaning?

Steamatic is certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA). You can take a look at the standards we follow on their web site at: http://www.nadca.com.
