Duct Cleaning Oakville
Air ducts are the tubes within your home that connect the HVAC system to your air vents. The purpose of the HVAC system is to suck in air via an intake vent and then to either heat or cool it. Once air has been heated or cooled, it’s forced through the vents where it’s carried throughout your home. You can think of your ducts as your home’s arteries. Just like the arteries, air ducts should be completely clear and clean to allow air to pass through efficiently.
Unfortunately, keeping ducts in pristine condition is difficult for many. This applies to individuals who are always busy and those who are unaware of duct cleaning and its importance. This is where we at Entire Duct Cleaning can help! We offer quality duct cleaning services to all residents of Oakville. We also service all cities falling within a 50 km radius of Toronto. Read on to learn some of the benefits of our duct cleaning services.
Why Should You Opt For Professional Duct Cleaning Services?
Get Rid of Dust Mites
Dust mites are one of the leading causes of respiratory issues. Prolonged exposure to these insect-like pests not only triggers allergies, but can also cause severe problems such as persistent sneezing, coughing, asthma attacks, congestion and facial pressure.
The problem with dust mites is that they’re microscopic, meaning they’re not visible to the naked eye. So you might not even realize that you’re exposing yourself to dust mites until it’s too late.
Getting your ducts cleaned on a regular basis is the best way to eliminate dust mites from your home. However, be sure to rely on companies that offer thorough duct cleaning services. At Entire Duct Cleaning, we provide an array of services that are done alongside duct cleaning. These involve dryer vent cleaning, exhaust vent cleaning and furnace cleaning.
Reduce Air Pollution in Your Home
One mistake that people make is to assume that air pollution only happens in an outdoor environment. But this couldn’t be farther from the truth! Unlike the outside air, the air in our homes is not regulated. And with most Canadians spending up to 90% of their time indoors, there’s a higher risk of suffering health problems indoors than outdoors. So how does indoor air pollution happen? Well, a common cause is asbestos. This material is extensively found in coatings, paints, construction materials and in the tiles of floors and ceilings. Thankfully, the Canadian government enforced a ban on the use of asbestos, which means you’re only likely to find it older homes. So if you live in a building that was constructed several years ago, you should get your old ductwork checked out as it might be jeopardizing your health. When old ductwork is cut, sanded or disturbed in any way, asbestos-containing fibres get released through the vents.
Although there are many other causes of indoor air pollution, a majority of them can be solved by cleaning your ducts. Our team of cleaners have the expertise to inspect and determine whether your home has old ductwork. We’ll then clean these tubes and advise you on how to care for them to prevent build-up of indoor pollutants.
Increase the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
If for no other reason, you should get your ducts cleaned to save on your utility bills. Here’s the deal: your HVAC system heavily relies on your ducts to carry the heated or cooled air throughout your home. This cycle of moving air is what keeps your home cool during the summer and warm during winter. Now, if there’s too much dust and debris that has built up in the ducts, these contaminants will impede proper flow of air. This means your HVAC system will have to work harder, and in the process utilize more energy to maintain optimal temperatures in your home. Want to keep your HVAC system working effectively and your energy bills low? Hiring a professional duct cleaning company is your best bet!
Boost Your Home’s Value
Whether you’re buying or selling your current home, duct cleaning is an important part of the deal. If you’re moving into a new residence, there’s no way of telling whether the previous owners maintained their ducts. Thus, the perfect way to get started on your home ownership journey is to get your ducts cleaned by a professional. On the other hand, if you’re planning to sell your home, it’s a good idea to have the ducts cleaned. This way, you’ll be leaving the place in pristine condition while also helping to improve the lifespan of the HVAC systems.
Also, the process of buying or selling a property calls for a ton of renovations. With all the construction that goes on, there’s a high chance that a lot of dust and pollutants will end up in the air ducts. The only way to ensure that your home’s airways are completely free of such irritants is to have your ducts professionally cleaned.
Secure Your Home
A recent study shows that there were up to 91 fire-related deaths in all of Canada. What many homeowners don’t know is that unclean ductwork is a major fire hazard. If too much dust and debris accumulates in the HVAC system, it can cause this system to overheat, and ignite a fire that can quickly spread through the ventilation system. The good news is, there are several measures you can take to prevent a fire tragedy. These include inspecting your home for gas and electrical issues, installing fire dampers and smoke alarms. But one often-forgotten tip is keeping up with duct cleaning. Keep yourself and your family safe by enlisting the services of a reputable duct cleaning company.
Preparing your Home for Duct Cleaning
One of the questions that a lot of clients ask is how they can prepare their homes for a duct cleaning service. Should you cover up furniture and other house furnishings? Well, you don’t need to do this. During our cleaning, we close up all the vents so you don’t need to worry about polluted air sipping into your home. That being said, it’s good to keep your pets, children and other members of your family away. Here are the steps to take:
Before the duct cleaning team arrives, it’s advisable to remove any clutter that could prevent easy accessibility to your ductwork. Is there a couch right in front of an air vent? Move it a couple of inches away. By getting rid of obstacles, you help the duct cleaning process to run smoothly and swiftly.
Inspect your Furnace and AC Units
This point is tied to the first. Essentially, all you need to do is check where appliances like the hot water tank, AC unit and furnace are located. If you have any items stored nearby, you should consider moving them away. In addition to providing easy accessibility, clearing up your home minimizes the risk of dirt being transferred from the areas that are being cleaned to those items.
Check On Your Pets
During a duct cleaning service, the technicians might have to leave your doors and windows wide open. So if you have pets, keep them on a leash to prevent them from escaping. You can lock them in their crate or leave them in a separate room until the duct cleaning is complete.
Have a Walk Through with the Contractors
Once the cleaners arrive at your home, it’s good to give them a quick tour of your property. Pinpoint where all the different vents are located and show them the different components of your HVAC system. If you have to leave your home in the midst of the cleaning, you can give them your phone number so they’re able to reach you easily.
The duct cleaning process can generate too much noise. While adults can tolerate high noise levels, toddlers cannot and they shouldn’t have to. Whenever possible, schedule the duct cleaning to be done when your kids are away for school or the holidays. However, if your kids will be present, our technicians will discuss some safety procedures to keep your family safe. We understand that children have smaller ear canals that are susceptible to loud sounds. Thus, we’ll enforce practices to keep your kids safe from all the noise.
In the event of any emergency, ensure you notify the technician where safety equipment like fire extinguishers are.
