Ever since our founding in 1992, Pro Steamer Cleaning and Restoration has made it our goal to help families in the Roswell, New Mexico area understand the importance of a clean air duct system. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have an air circulating system that utilizes a standard fiberglass filter?
- Do you own any pets?
- Are there smokers in your house?
- Do you or any housemates suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems?
- Do you experience headaches or burning sensations in the nose, throat, or eyes when inside your home?
- Do you have ‘dust trails’ or discoloration coming out of your air duct registers?
If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, your home may suffer from indoor air pollution and could use a professional cleaning to reach optimal health and safety. Call us at (575) 623-0993 to help improve the quality of your indoor environment.
You probably don’t think much about your air ducts. In truth, air ducts are typically great at trapping some air pollutants, keeping them out of your home’s air. But there are always times when your air quality could be in danger.
Dirt, dust, mold, pollen, and animal dander get re-circulated through air ducts whenever the heat or air conditioner is turned on. Usually, they’ll get trapped, stuck to the sides of the duct where they can’t be blown back out into your home. However, over time these pollutants build up until they either block the airflow to your home or become dislodged, spreading throughout the air in your home.
If combined with moisture, such as condensation from the AC unit, these built-up beds of dirt and dust can be the ideal breeding ground for fungi, germs, and household molds. Certain diseases such as salmonella, strep, and Legionnaires disease can be spread through contaminated air ducts. It’s important to keep air ducts regularly cleaned to help prevent such dangers from affecting your indoor air quality.
Our technicians have been trained and certified in the latest air duct cleaning equipment and methods. We can remove mold, bacteria, fungus, construction debris, and dust from your air ducts and furnace. When you hire Pro Steamer Cleaning and Restoration, you can rest assured that you’ll be breathing in the cleanest air possible.
Before beginning any cleaning process, our technicians must inspect the area to ensure it is safe to work with and to determine exactly what kind of cleaning it will need. We’ll inspect your HVAC system to learn its performance levels and the degree of contamination contained within.
Before we start the cleaning process, we’ll take measures to ensure the rest of your home stays clean and healthy. We’ll move furniture out of the way and protect your floors and walls from any escaping debris. We guarantee to leave the rest of your home as clean as we found it or to clean it up if it does become dirty.
After securing the area, we’ll connect a powerful vacuum to our main truck line and seal off the outlets in each room. This creates a vacuum effect within the air duct system. We’ll then uncover one register at a time as we work.
In order to properly remove all the dirt, dust, and debris, it must first be loosened from the siding of your ducts. We use specially designed air tools to help loosen the debris and lift it into the vacuum stream we’ve created. With our tools, we can clean from the register through the entire duct, all the way back to the furnace. We guarantee all contaminants will be removed from each register.
Once everything is loosened up, we install an access door in the plenum (the separate space provided for air circulation for your HVAC, located between the structural ceiling and a drop-down ceiling or under a raised floor) to give us access to the return side of the air duct system. Using a powerful vacuum system that many air duct companies don’t have access to, we can clean the cold air return and plenum. Most often, this is where the majority of the contamination in your system builds up.
Once the registers and returns are cleaned, we’ll turn our attention to the furnace. We vacuum out the inside of the furnace chambers, remove all dust and debris from the blower and blades, and do a final inspection to ensure everything is working properly.
If you, your family, or your guests experience allergic reactions when inside your home, it could be a sign that your air duct system is clogged with dirt, dust, pollen, dander, and other pollutants. Only a professional cleaning can ensure your home has the highest indoor air quality possible. If you want to keep your home and your family safe and healthy, call us at (575) 623-0993. We’ve helped homes in the Roswell, New Mexico area improve their indoor air quality for over 30 years, and we can’t wait to help improve yours as well.
