You put a lot of time into your Phoenix, AZ, home, ensuring it is spotless. You sweep, scrub, vacuum, and dust until you cannot find a speck of dirt.
Yet, the indoor air makes you sniffle, and you occasionally get a whiff of moldy and musty smells when the air conditioning kicks on. Look closer, and you may be surprised to find a hidden collection of dirt and debris behind the walls and ceilings in your home.
Dirty ductwork is the culprit affecting indoor air quality (IAQ) and restricting airflow to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
Arizona Professional Duct Cleaning
A professional cleaning is the remedy for debris-filled ductwork. Ductwork cleaning is not a do-it-yourself job, although you can safely vacuum air vent registers and grilles.
Our Phoenix duct cleaning professionals at Desert Diamond Air install, seal, and clean ductwork. Our technicians are trained in techniques and equipped with the tools to rid your HVAC system’s ductwork of the dust, pet dander, insects, and dirt that may accumulate over time.
Contaminants, such as mold and particulate matter, can coat the walls of your ductwork and may be blown into your living area when your HVAC equipment turns on.
The Importance of Duct Cleaning
Ductwork is easy to overlook but requires maintenance like your HVAC system. Clean air ducts will keep your heating and cooling system clean and maintain airflow, which is crucial for efficient operation.
It also reduces contaminants in the air you breathe. Indoor air pollution, including debris collected in your air ducts, can worsen respiratory and heart diseases, trigger asthma attacks, and irritate your eyes, nose, and throat.
At Desert Diamond Air, we are committed to improving your comfort and safeguarding your health. Duct cleaning is one of our most effective home performance and indoor air quality solutions for our customers in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, Glendale, Mesa, Sun City, Surprise, and neighboring communities.
When to Clean Air Ducts
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests cleaning ducts as needed. It says ducts that contain insects, rodents, mold, or excessive debris are good candidates for a thorough cleaning. Cleaning your ductwork is imperative if it clogs or releases dirt into your home.
The National Air Ducts Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests cleaning your ductwork every three years. We recommend more frequent cleanings if you own a pet, smoke indoors, often use your fireplace, or if you or other family members have allergies or a respiratory illness.
Keeping Ductwork Clean
Our Arizona duct cleaning technicians at Desert Diamond Air use special brushes and powerful suction devices to eliminate airborne particles and accumulated debris inside your air ducts. We whisk away every bit of dust and leave nothing behind to sully your home.
