What is air duct cleaning?

Professional air duct cleaning is used to remove any build up within your ductwork. Over time, these pathways can collect dust, carcinogens, and even mold! Don’t let these issues go undetected. Book a professional duct cleaning service today to be sure you and your family are breathing quality indoor air. Did you know that the average person spends 90% of his or her life indoors? Improve the quality of the air inside your St. Louis, MO area home with 1st Global Cleaning and their air duct cleaning service. During our thorough cleanings, all ductwork passageways will be inspected and sanitized. To clean the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home, we use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes.

How often should your air ducts be cleaned?

Typically we suggest a home’s air ducts be cleaned every five to eight years. Homeowners with children, pets, respiratory issues, or a compromised immune system may want to get their HVAC duct system cleaned more often. The better filtration the system has cut down on cleaning frequency.

Will the duct cleaning process leave a mess in my home or commercial property?

No. Our technicians use the highest quality and most state of the art duct cleaning equipment. All vacuum devices used in our process utilize HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air). This filtration is rated at 99.97% at.3 microns– meaning there will be no mess left behind once the duct cleaning job is complete!

Why is my ductwork sweating?

The water you see dripping from your ducts is most likely from condensation and is not something to look past. If left untreated, this water build up may lead to leaky ceilings or mold growth. How did this condensation get here? It likely formed when warm, humid air came into contact with the much colder surface of your home’s ductwork. Once you notice this sweating, it is important for you to call in a team of professional air duct cleaners right away to fix your HVAC issue before your drywall begins to rot and mold starts to grow.
Is duct cleaning worth it?

Will a duct cleaning reduce my energy bills?

Research by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that HVAC system cleaning may allow systems to run more efficiently. Why is this the case? Air duct cleaning effectively removes debris from sensitive mechanical components. By investing in a professional air duct cleaning, your system may be less likely to break down and use less energy to produce the same results. Get the most out of your ductwork and cut back on your energy usage by scheduling ductwork cleaning service every three to five years.

Is air duct cleaning necessary?

If you want to breathe clean, filtered air, then yes, there is a need to have your ducts professionally cleaned every five to eight years. Ductwork cleaning removes any contaminants from these pipes including dust, pollen, bacteria, and mold. Without quality duct cleaning service, you and your family are at a higher risk of breathing polluted air. Keep your family and your co-workers healthy by remembering to schedule regular duct cleaning service with the team of professionals at 1st Global Cleaning.

How are dryer vents cleaned?

Both residential and commercial dryer vents are cleaned with a brush and a vacuum system that goes through the entire length of the vent. This snaking procedure ensures that all the lint is removed from the vent walls– reducing any build up!
How long does a dryer vent cleaning take?

For a residential property, a dryer vent cleaning will take about one hour. However, a commercial property could take longer depending on the size and amount of dryer vents that need to be cleaned.
