If you worry about the quality of the air in your home, duct cleaning may be a great choice for your family. With duct cleaning, professionals go after the most common contaminants in your ducts which may affect your family’s health. And in some cases, you can get duct sanitizing for further protection against bacteria and viruses. Talk with the experts at Cool Air Mechanical for more information and to schedule complete duct cleaning service in Alpharetta.
What is involved with duct sanitizing?
Duct sanitizing is the very last step in duct cleaning, and it is entirely optional. In some case duct cleaning is already sufficient. Technicians use agitators and high-pressure vacuums to knock debris loose from the lining of the ducts and suck it up. They’ll use professional inspection equipment to make sure the job was completed properly. And finally, some companies ask clients whether they would like duct sanitizing as well.
With duct sanitizing, our technicians use an EPA-approved cleaning agent to further eliminate microbes and other contaminants from the ducts. There are very few products out there approved for this by the Environmental Protection Agency and OSHA–the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which is why it’s important to choose the right company for this task.
Do I really need duct sanitizing?
The fact is that not every home will require duct sanitizing. We usually recommend this service only to our customers who suffer from asthma, allergies, or severe immune disorders. You may decide to add on duct cleaning at the end of your service for this reason, or you may choose to if the level of dust in your ducts was particularly high. The choice is yours, but keep in mind that this process is safe for your home and for the air you breathe. However, we can only sanitize sheet metal ducts at this point, as there is no approved process for fiber duct board.
When you decide it’s time to schedule duct cleaning in Alpharetta, choose a company who uses the right tools and methods and who gives you the option to add in duct sanitizing.
