Keeping your home free from dirt, dust, allergens, and other contaminants is not only good for you health, but it can also help keep your home safer. When your air circulation system is full of dirt and other substances, it could pose a fire risk in some circumstances. Professional duct cleaning in Vancouver WA will ensure your home is safe and comfortable.

What is Air Duct Cleaning?

Air duct cleaning is the process of removing dirt, dust, and grime from heating and cooling system components including the air ducts, registers, diffusers, heating and cooling coils, air handling unit, and other parts that come into contact with circulating air. These parts can become contaminated with allergens and other household particles, and if there is moisture present, mold can also become a problem.

Duct Cleaning and Fire Safety

Accumulated dust and debris in any area is a risk for fire and poses a danger of spreading fire to other parts of a home via the ventilation system. In most homes, a significant buildup of dust is unlikely as the simple circulation of air through the ventilation system prevents much settling. However, if your central heating and cooling system is not used frequently, or you rely on other systems such as a wood-burning stove or fireplace for heat, then settlement can occur. Pest infestation can also lead to heavy accumulations in your ducts, especially from rodents, birds, and other small animals.

When to Clean Your Ducts

If anyone in your home is experiencing upper respiratory problems from allergies or illness, regular duct cleaning is essential. If you’ve just moved into a new home, getting a thorough cleaning is also a good idea, especially if the previous owners had pets. You should also schedule duct cleaning in Vancouver, WA, in these situations:

  • Mold is Discovered. Although not a risk for fire, if mold is detected anywhere in your heating and cooling system, a full cleaning is necessary.
  • Pest Infestation. Whether the infestation is in the air system or not, a full duct cleaning should follow after eliminating the infestation. Rodents and birds can also carry debris throughout your ventilation system and these accumulations will put your home at risk for fire.
  • Major Remodeling. Demolition and construction can cause a significant decrease in indoor air quality and the continual circulation of dirt, dust, and debris can lead to accumulations in your ducts. Always schedule a duct cleaning following any major home improvement project.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
