You spend most of your time indoors, either at your home or at work. Do you know what you’re breathing?
Depending on how often you clean your ventilation and air duct systems, you’re inhaling a variety of dirt, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, bacteria, mold, and more. By maintaining your filters and getting professional air duct cleaning, you can breathe easy knowing that your air is clean.
Do You Know What You’re Breathing?
We tend to blame our allergies on Austin’s pollen problem, but that same pollen may be circulating through the ducts in your own home– not to mention the mold and bacteria that trigger 1 in 4 people’s allergies.
In fact, indoor air can actually be 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Air quality testing is the easiest way to determine exactly what's in the air you're breathing. But if you’re not sure, consider the last time you had to replace your vent filters. Unless those filters were pristine and clean, you already have a good idea of what’s in your air.
While the filters themselves can help block larger particles, the ducts are still carrying tiny bacteria, pollen, and other potentially harmful, allergenic particles.
The air circulating in your home or business is full of:
MOLD & MILDEW
Indoor Air Quality Evaluation
Scheduling an indoor air quality evaluation is the simplest way to identify what you’re breathing in and in what quantities, which then allows you to find the best solution to clean your air. While regularly changing your air filters is a great start, the majority of contaminants often reside in the ducts themselves.
To assess your indoor air quality, we run a camera through your ducts to get a visual assessment of your HVAC system, checking for:
- Mold growth
Once our certified tech has generated a custom air report of your home or business, we can work with you to find & solve any issues identified. Most likely, the contaminants in your air are a build-up of particles in your building’s air ducts, which is an easy solution with air duct cleaning.
Thorough duct cleaning clears out anything that has built up in your home’s ducts, and can even reduce lingering odors from food, pets, smoking, and anything else you don’t want to be smelling every day.
Long story short, duct cleaning is an essential part of maintaining any home or business.
When You Need Ducts & Ventilation Cleaned
Air quality testing is the easiest way to determine what's in the air you're breathing. Daniel's Austin offers fast, affordable air testing to determine the quality of air in your home or business.
Depending on the size of the building, we recommend professional duct cleaning every three to five years. However, since the air you breathe is pretty important, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for signs that you may need cleaning sooner.
Give us a call if you start to notice:
- Mold. Any mold in your home, especially near your AC, means there is mold in your air. Even if you manage to clear out visible mold or mildew in your home, there’s a good chance there’s more growing in ducts. If left alone, it’ll continue to grow and make it impossible to fully clean it out of your home.
- Visible Dust. Every building will have a little bit of dust, but if you’re cleaning and cleaning and still finding dust, there could be a problem. This is especially an issue in new buildings or homes with recent renovations, as all kinds of dust and dirt get sucked into your vent system.
- Inconsistent Airflow. Every vent should provide about the same airflow. If you’re noticing one room in particular that never seems to cool off or warm-up, it could be a blocked vent or some obstruction in the ducts themselves.
- Noises. If you’ve lived or worked in the building for a while, you’re probably familiar with most of the normal sounds various things make. If your vents begin making odd or new sounds, it could be due to something in your vents.
- Unpleasant Smells. There are many potential sources for foul odors or odd smells, and none of them are great. If your air regularly smells dank or feels too humid, it could be caused by something in the vents. Sewage smells may be a sign of a burst pipe or other plumbing problem, but if you smell sulphur or gas, call for gas leak detection immediately.
How Duct Cleaning Works
Duct cleaning, to put it as simply as possible, is basically just vacuuming your duct and vent system.
Of course, it’s no ordinary vacuum. Our Rotobrush Brushbeast is the best air duct cleaner on the market, with 4 different vacuum motors, HEPA filtered suction, and double-lined hoses. All of this power helps us to clean up even the heaviest build-up, leaving your vents– and air– cleaner than ever.
Despite being the best tool available, the Brushbeast is only as effective as its handler. That’s why our duct cleaning technicians have plenty of training and years of experience in cleaning out a variety of air ducts in all shapes and sizes. If you’re curious about the process, feel free to ask any questions you may have during the cleaning process.
We aim to not only solve your plumbing and duct problems but to help educate our clients to the best of our ability.
