Duct Doctor of Southern New Jersey offers professional, award winning services for residential and commercial duct cleaning. We send uniformed technicians to your home or business. On arrival, you’ll immediately notice our patented vacuum truck in the driveway.
Our technicians will run a series of heavy duty hoses to connect the truck's vacuum to your ductwork. This avoids the need to bring large, cumbersome equipment into the building. Once the truck is operating, the ductwork is put under negative pressure or suction.
Next, the technicians will remove vent covers and begin prepping for air duct cleaning. They will insert a high-velocity air sweeper in the ductwork, which acts as an agitation device to dislodge any dirt and debris. A high pressure blasting tool directs the dislodged material into the truck’s hose. This positive pressure increases the effectiveness of our dust and debris removal procedure.
We perform this Source Removal process on both the return air and supply air of your ductwork to ensure all debris and contaminants are completely removed from the system.
There’s More Hiding in Your Ducts Than You Realize
Did you know that contaminants like dust, mites, pet dander, and mold could be circulating in your air heating and cooling systems right now?
Did you know that regular air duct cleaning removes contaminants and can result in a longer life and better performance from your HVAC system?
Did you know that 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living in a typical six-room home?
When Is It Time for a Professional Duct Cleaning?
The contents of your ductwork has direct effects on the “air envelope” of your home, and the human body also reacts to duct debris, which is a potent irritant. Look for the following list of signs that you could benefit from having your ducts cleaned:
Ducts in an otherwise clean home will generally benefit from cleaning every 3-5 years
When a new HVAC unit is installed
After renovations or remodeling has been done
After remediation of any level of mold anywhere in the home or office
When frequent dusting is needed to keep surfaces and blinds clean
After a tobacco smoker has lived in a home — we can get rid of tobacco odors!
When an occupant is suffering from a respiratory disorder (e.g. asthma, emphysema, or COPD) — frequently these symptoms are either being caused by or being made worse by debris in ductwork, especially in children and the elderly
When you move into a new home or office
Prior to the birth of a child
If your air smells musty, stale, or has other unpleasant odors
When the surface of vents or the surface visible just inside vents are dirty or develop small “dust bunnies,” which is a sure sign of heavy contamination inside the ductwork
Did You Know?
Did you know that ducts can act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants, such as vermin, rodents (and their droppings), as well as spiders, insects, small particles of dust, pollen, sawdust, and construction debris? The removal of this foreign matter should be considered a vital component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
Did you know that dirty ducts can aggravate allergies? They contribute to health issues that cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, and some environmental allergies.
Did you know that clean ducts save energy? Up to 30% of the energy used for heating or cooling a home can be wasted due to dirty ductwork, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your HVAC system. Even with the proper use of filters, heating and cooling systems will still become contaminated over time through normal use. Just ⅛” of debris on your fan motor blades can reduce airflow by 15% or more!
