When it comes to keeping a home clean, a bunch of areas probably come to mind. You’ve often cleaned your bedroom, disinfected your bathroom, scrubbed your kitchen, vacuumed your floors, and so on. However, have you thought about the air in your house? Air duct cleaning often goes overlooked. Plus, how are air ducts cleaned anyway? There are various ways to conduct vent and air duct cleaning, plus many reasons to care about doing so.
Negative Air Cleaning Systems
What is a negative air machine? Through various filters, this machine aims to remove harmful or potentially dangerous air particles. When you use a negative air machine for air ventilation cleaning, you are working in a controlled space, like cleaning your air ducts. Similar to a vacuum, the machine pulls the dirty air out of the area. Then, after going through filters, the air is exhausted out.
With this machine, the pollutants go through a series of filters. This consists of the pre-filters, optional medium filters, optional carbon filters, primary or HEPA filters, and a blower. By using clean air duct services like this, you aim to prevent the air from spreading to other areas of the building. Though many professional duct cleaning services use this method, there are way more effective methods out there.
The Rotobrush BrushBeast Cleaner
At Aftertime-Bio, we use a Rotobrush BrushBeast for our professional air duct cleaning. As professionals with years of experience in the field, we believe this is the best way to ensure clean air from your air ducts. With a 90% increase in vacuum power from other models, the tool can remove even the heaviest build up within duct systems. This is due to four heavy-duty vacuum motors. Its portability ensures that it can be maneuvered in any space—commercial or residential air vent cleaning. Additionally, it works with any type of air duct, even flex ducts.
Unlike a negative air cleaning machine, this Rotobrush does more than get rid of compromised and dirty air. It comes with vacuum accessories, a drill, and a fogger to ensure the surface of the air duct gets completely cleaned as well. During the air duct cleaning and sanitizing process, the dirt, residue, and potentially dangerous air is sucked into an advanced filter bag design. This comprehensive clean air duct treatment is the way to go when it comes to protecting your air quality.
Cleaning in the Aftermath of a Disaster
While it’s imperative to have clean air ducts all of the time, it is the most important to get yours checked after disasters and heavy storms. During a storm it’s possible that your system itself can get damaged. If floodwaters reach your HVAC system, your coils, fans, and chambers all need to be thoroughly cleaned. Beyond that, mold can begin to grow in ducts within 48 hours within your vents.
When returning to your home or cleaning up after a natural disaster, the last thing you want is to become sick due to poor air quality. There are health benefits to clean air ducts. These consist of
- easier breathing, especially for those with respiratory issues,
- improved body oxygenation,
- reduced eye, skin, and sinus irritants,
- prevention of longterm exposure to chronic diseases causing particles,
- and more consistent body temperature levels.
