SERVICING STOCKTON, MODESTO, EAST BAY AND SACRAMENTO AREAS
When I clean peoples ducts I am always asked if sanitizing is actually beneficial?
It's a great question. The answer is yes.
Spot Pros Carpet Cleaning
This service, when done properly, has great benefit. Your duct system is “The air you breath”. That system is dark, dusty, sometimes humid and, during some seasons, inactive. All these factors are prime for growth of mold and bacteria.
Factors for effective application of a sanitizing agent are:
1. Applied to a clean surface. (After proper cleaning)
2. Registered, effective sanitizing solution at appropriate dilutions and method.
3. Dwelling time according to solution used. (5 - 20 minutes)
Without these principles being applied, it is not worth paying for this service.
How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?
How do you know that you are getting a true Sanitizing of your ductwork system?
If a duct cleaner includes this in their cleaning package, they are, most likely, simply spraying a deodorizer or sanitizing agent in the vents. You are getting what you paid for, a false sense of clean.
The company should apply at least a 15 step process to ensure an effective application of a quality sanitizing agent. The sanitizing agent needs to be fogged into your entire system and allowed time to dwell.
As your mother taught you, “Anything worth doing, is worth doing right” otherwise, save your money.
Most Companies Charge $20 to $35/vent for this service. We only charge $15 per vent. This service is recommended you do to your system every 3 to 5 years to kill all the bacteria that has grown over the years in your ventilation system. Its also recommended to professionally clean and spray the Air-handler located inside your furnace. That is the engine to the air you breathe, if that's dirty.....well, so is the air you and your family are breathing in.
