Houston’s Trusted Indoor Air Quality and HVAC Experts

Does your family suffer from frequent allergy attacks or unexplained symptoms and afflictions? Do you smell a moldy or musty odor in the air?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Americans, on average, spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.”

Most of these pollutants, including pet dander, dust mites, fungal spores, and cigarette smoke, originate from inside your home. Those with respiratory problems are particularly affected by these contaminants and also spend the most time indoors.

Do I Need My Ducts Cleaned?

A good way to tell if you need your ducts cleaned is to take a flash camera and take pictures of the inside of your ducts. Simply remove an easy-to-reach register and snap a couple of pictures. If you cannot see the siding of your air ducts, it is probably time for a cleaning.

We recommend getting a professional air duct cleaning every 8 years or so, but perhaps more frequently if you have moisture issues, something Houston is known to experience.

You don’t know what’s growing on the inside of your air ducts. If you want to know if you need duct cleaning, our trusted technicians can give you a full report and recommend ways to improve your indoor air quality, which may include a professional duct cleaning.

How to Tell If You Need Duct Cleaning:

  • You can see mold growth in your ducts or on other parts of your heating and cooling system.
  • You suspect or smell dead vermin in your ducts.
  • When your heating or air conditioning is on, you can see dust and airborne particles get released from the supply registers.
  • You take a picture of the inside of your air ducts and cannot see the inner walls because of the thickness due to dirt and debris.
  • You haven’t cleaned your air ducts in 10 years or more.
  • You often get sick or have prolonged sickness. You or your household members suffer from asthma, allergies, or another respiratory ailment.
  • Dizziness, headaches, nausea, trouble sleeping, sinuses, and fatigue.

We will clean your entire heating and cooling system to ensure there is no chance of recontamination. In approximately 3 to 8 hours, our expert technicians will clean all components of your system, including:

  • Supply and Return Ducts
  • Registers and Vents
  • Grilles and Diffusers
  • Heating and Cooling Coils
  • Condensate Drain Pans
  • Fan Motor and Fan Housing
  • Unit’s Housing

It is extremely important that you hire a licensed, qualified professional to do the job. Otherwise, you risk recontamination and damaged HVAC components. Careless duct cleaning jobs will actually make your air quality worse, blowing all of the dirt and dust from inside your ducts into your home. You may also notice your utility bills increase.

We also do home duct sealing!

In addition to improving indoor air quality, your system will run more efficiently and you will see the savings on your utility bills. Although you can seal your exposed air ducts yourself with aluminum foil tape or mastic sealant, it takes a professional to seal your entire air duct system.
