Air Duct Cleaning


Enhance Your Home’s Air Quality and Respiratory Health

From The EPA: 

“Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

If not properly installed, maintained and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home’s living space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them (epa.gov).”

If none of your family members has allergies or respiratory issues, and a visual inspection reveals no significant accumulation of dust or mold, air duct cleaning might be unnecessary. Dust buildup on return registers is normal as air circulates through the grate. However, this doesn’t necessarily indicate contamination within the ducts; registers can be easily vacuumed or removed for cleaning.

Harker recommends air duct cleaning if visible mold growth is present inside rigid (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or other components of your heating and cooling system.

Here are several crucial points concerning mold detection in HVAC systems:

  • Many sections of your air ducts may not be accessible for a visible inspection, but the HVAC technicians at Harker have the specialized tools needed to inspect. Ask your Harker professional to show you any problematic areas.
  • It’s easy to assume any substance seen in your vents is mold when in reality, it’s a different, harmless substance. Your Harker technician can inspect in detail and recommend whether testing is needed.
  • If mold is present, it needs to be remediated as quickly as possible to prevent greater contamination and health risks.
  • If you simply had your air ducts cleaned but the source of moisture was not resolved, the mold growth could recur.
  • Harker’s experts will help identify and resolve any moisture issues causing mold growth before safely cleaning your ducts. This proactive prevention stops mold growth in the future before it begins.

Even if no mold is present, duct cleaning may be advisable to remove accumulated dust, debris and other particulates circulating through your system, improving indoor air quality.
