You need clean air inside your home and since you are using HVAC as an alternate source of air inside your household, it is very important that you always keep it clean and free germs and viruses to avoid airborne diseases.
Two of the things that you need to clean from your air ducts are the dirt and the dust. Though at the back of your mind, you are thinking that these two are easy to remove but then again, you are dealing with air ducts so it very important that follow simple guidelines on how to clean the ducts and maintain it.
Using handheld vacuum is useful to remove dirt from the duct. It should be equipped by a HEPA or the High-Efficiency Particulate Air. This vacuum is attached to the brush but it is not a 100% guarantee that all the dirt will be removed.
Another way of cleaning is by using a mechanical brush. The truck-mounted vacuum will suck the debris and dirt while the brush is inside the ductwork. The advantage of this type is that it might damage some parts of the system especially if it’s installed poorly.
An air sweep is also another option for cleaning wherein a hose is fed into the duct and a truck-mounted vacuum carries away the dirt. Compared to mechanical brush and handheld vacuum, air sweep is the most efficient to use.
Lastly, in order to maintain your air duct, you should be able to hire a duct cleaning company that can give full satisfaction in terms of cost and output. Though there are a lot of cleaning duct companies in your place, you should choose the one that has a lot of positive feedback as your standard of choosing the best cleaning services.
