Does the air smell musty whenever you turn on the air-conditioner? Or do your allergies play up whenever you get home? Unclean ducts can cause high amounts of contaminants, debris, dirt, and even mould.

The specialised equipment needed to clean air ducts (i.e. heavy-duty vacuum) can often be expensive. Plus, the skills needed to take apart and reassemble parts, along with the correct tools mean that it usually makes better sense to hire a professional for the job.
Duct cleaners work to ensure that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems in your home or commercial space are clean and operating efficiently. Regular duct cleaning services include:
Air conditioning duct cleaning and heater duct cleaning services both involve the same steps. Your cleaner will start by turning off the power connected to your air conditioning or central heating system. Next, they’ll unscrew the air duct covers and grilles from your walls and ceilings, before using a brush to clean them thoroughly. Your cleaner may also use a cleaning agent if the grilles are especially filthy. Then they’ll use a powerful, heavy-duty vacuum with a long hose to reach into the crevices of the air duct and remove any mildew, mould, dirt, and debris. Alternatively, some duct cleaners may blow pressurised air directly into the system to remove any remaining dirt. Finally, your duct cleaner will sanitise and deodorise your air conditioning or heating system before switching the power back on.
Filter changes are an important part of duct cleaning because the air filter captures debris, pollen, mould, and bacteria from the air, ideally stopping most of it from travelling into the duct. Sometimes cleaning the filter will be sufficient, but most duct systems need filter changes at least once a year. Depending on whether your air-conditioning system uses furnace or forced air, the filter will be attached to the air conditioning unit or grille respectively. Kitchen duct filters trap the grease and oil from cooking and should be replaced regularly, as well. This filter is usually found in the hood or ventilation grille. To change the filter, your cleaner will first turn off the power and clean the area surrounding the filter. Next, they’ll access the filter and remove it. If the filter is washable, they’ll use soap and water (hot water for kitchen duct filters) to wash out debris. If it’s not washable or the filter is due for a change, they’ll replace with a new one.
