Duct Cleaning

Duct Cleaning

Does your family suffer from:

  • Allergies?
  • Asthma?
  • Nighttime or morning sinus problems?
  • Headaches or nasal congestion?

Perhaps your home’s “respiratory” system has become dirty.

Your furnace and air conditioners share “vents” and “air returns.” Vents provide us with warm and cool air while air returns draw stale air back into the duct work where it is filtered and then brought back to your furnace or air conditioner. Due to its “dirty” job, air returns are often considerably dusty and contain build up.

Microbes, Dust Mites, and Fungus

Over time, the inside of your ductwork can become quite dirty. This dirt can breed microbes, dust mites and fungus. Dust and pollen is also sucked into your ductwork. When the blower for your furnace or A/C turns on, these tiny allergens are blown through the vents throughout your home, where you then breathe them in and they enter your lungs.

Advanced air filters help prevent these allergens from circulating through your home, but filthy ductwork can prematurely clog filters. If your system uses the simple fiberglass air filters, these contaminants are circulating right back into your living areas – creating unhealthy breathing conditions and reapplying a fine particle deposit on your furniture.

The best way to rid your home of these pollutants is to have them removed from your ductwork.

How We Restore and Clear Contaminates with Duct Cleaning

Merts Heating & Air Conditioning uses top-of-the-line technology to clean your ducts and eliminate contaminants at the source. Our system’s patented power vacuum and compressor clean your ducts while minimizing noise. High velocity nozzles run throughout your ductwork and dislodge debris from the surfaces of your ducts. The powerful vacuum then captures and filters particles as small as 1/300th of a human hair while returning air to your home that’s considered “hospital grade.”

Don’t Forget Your Dryer Vents

Dirty dryer vents are a serious fire hazard. A clogged dryer exhaust will block water and hot air from being expelled. The trapped air will lead to a rise in the temperature of the dryer. High temperatures combined with the highly-combustible lint that accumulates over time in the vent surfaces, creates an ideal recipe for a house fire. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, overheated dryers, due to dirty dryer vents, are the cause of roughly 15,500 fires each year.
