You have a question? Someone else might have had the exact same one. Let's find out!

Indoor air quality and energy savings are the two biggest concerns when it comes to air duct cleaning and maintenance. Serving as the lungs of your home, your HVAC system takes air out of the interior, but when the system starts getting clogged up with dirt, or its filters are in need of replacement, the air quality in your home will decrease as a result. After all, even during normal occupation of any home, between 20 and 40 pounds of dust are created each year. Additionally, other pollutants and allergens, such as animal dander, mold and other microorganisms also present a threat to your air quality, and a typical HVAC system has to recirculate the air upwards of five times per day.

In a region like Dubai, UAE, particles of dusts are constantly blown through the air and into your home or office AC system. Dust particles accumulate rapidly in your ducts and usually settles there due to the moist surface brought about by condensing air.

Your HVAC system should be cleaned if:

  • 1 Renovation : If your home has been remodeled – especially if there was asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or significant dust – your ductwork may need to be cleaned. Ducts should be sealed off during home renovations; but if they weren’t, dangerous dust and debris may become lodged inside the ductwork.
  • 2 Animals : If there’s evidence of animal infestation or nesting in your ducts or HVAC system, have the animals removed then clean the ductwork and HVAC unit.
  • 3 Mold : If there is visible mold growth inside the ductwork, the ducts and HVAC system should be cleaned.
  • 4 Contaminants : If noticeable debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed; then the ducts may need to be cleaned.
  • 5 Illness : If someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, and you’ve taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.

AC drainage trays located just beneath the evaporator unit is usually the most ignored part of the AC. Stagnant water collected in the tray can produce moulds within 48 hours and is usually the cause of bad smells from the AC system.

When evaporator coils are not properly cleaned and disinfected, it can cause resistance or blockage causing the poor performance of your AC system. If the air passages are blocked, the motor will have to work twice as hard to get the room filled with cooler air.

Listen to your AC. It'll tell you when it is in need of repair by making sounds such as clunking and whistling. Many people assume that an air conditioner naturally makes these, but that is not the case. This is a sign that you need repair work done on your system. Another telltale sign is that your air conditioning isn't cooling your home as effectively as it used to. Although it will take your system a bit longer to cool your house on an extremely hot day, the real question is if your air conditioning isn't cooling your home as consistently or as well as it once did.

Although your air conditioning system may continue to work even if it is making strange noises and even if it has diminished effectiveness, that is not a reason to put off getting it repaired or serviced. If you wait too long, it could overheat and burn out for good, thus forcing you to replace it.

Our certified technicians start by cleaning the vents and register covers before using a dust sweeping machine to reach the very back of the ductwork. This allows us to remove things like dust mites, animal dander and other dirt that would otherwise be impossible to reach. No part of the duct system is left untouched, and all debris is extracted and collected back into our equipment for disposal. Also, we can apply a disinfecting agent to treat for mold, fungi, mildew, bacteria and other organisms after cleaning the system's mechanical components.

Prior to the technician's arrival, locate all of your air ducts to ensure we clean them all. Pull furniture obstructing the access to any ducts away from the wall. The technician will cover furniture and valuables with a plastic sheet to ensure that no damage will be done to your belongings.

The air duct cleaning process involves several steps to ensure that the whole system is thoroughly cleaned

  • 1 A pre-inspection to review the systems level of contamination to design the most appropriate and thorough cleaning and disinfectant procedure.
  • 2 Cleaning of the interior surfaces of the A/C unit and coil using specialized equipment.
  • 3 Cleaning of the blower unit, the supply and return registers, ducts and grills.
  • 4 Installation of a new air filter to help kill odors and maintain a cleaner, higher quality of air inside your home.
