Understanding Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting

Before we dive into the specifics of our services, it’s crucial to understand the subtle differences between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting your air ducts.

  • Air Duct Cleaning Services

Air duct cleaning involves the manual removal of solid matter from ducts. This includes allergens that can trigger allergies, especially since some air ducts can accumulate dirt, clogs, mold, and bacteria. The goal here is to ensure the smooth flow of air and remove physical contaminants.

  • Air Duct Cleaning and Sanitizing

Taking a step beyond cleaning, this approach combines cleaning with additional measures to reduce the amount of bacteria, germs, and other microorganisms. It’s a comprehensive strategy to enhance the overall air quality within your home.

  • Air Duct Cleaning and Disinfecting

The most comprehensive of the three, this treatment aims to kill germs and viruses on the surfaces of your air ducts. The primary objective is to prevent health problems such as allergies, asthma, and infections like COVID-19. For example, our recommended disinfectant, Sporicidin, is a well-known solution that has been proven to eliminate nearly 100% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi within just 10 minutes!

How do We Sanitize and Disinfect Air Ducts?

Our approach involves the highly effective sporicidal fogging method. This cutting-edge technique ensures a complete coating on every surface of your ductwork. Our technicians use an EPA-registered disinfectant solution called Sporicidin, which is fragrance-free and low-toxic. This solution is currently employed in hospitals, medical offices, and other healthcare facilities, making it effective against viruses like COVID-19.

Determining the Need for Professional Sanitizing and Disinfecting

Not everyone requires air duct sanitizing and disinfecting, but there are specific circumstances where these services become crucial:

  • Health Concerns: Individuals with asthma, allergies, tuberculosis, or other diseases transmitted by airborne droplets benefit from the added protection provided by sanitizing and disinfecting.
  • Pet Owners: If you share your home with pets, the additional measures help eliminate potential allergens and maintain a cleaner environment.
  • Odor Issues: Unpleasant odors emanating from your ductwork may be a sign of microbial growth, warranting sanitizing and disinfecting services.
  • Water Damage: If you’ve experienced water leaks or damage to your air duct system, the risk of mold and bacterial growth increases, necessitating professional treatment.
  • Suspected Contaminants: If you suspect the presence of mold, bacteria, viruses, or fungi in your air ducts, it’s prudent to opt for sanitizing and disinfecting services.

How Often to Air Duct Sanitize/Disinfect

After availing of our sanitizing and disinfecting services, you can expect the effects to last approximately six months. However, certain changes in your home environment might prompt the need for more frequent treatments. For instance, if there’s a contagious illness in your home or concerns about COVID-19, it’s advisable to consider additional treatments for continued safety.
