Is your HVAC system due for professional duct cleaning? Then it’s important to choose a reputable company that guarantees to do the job properly. Keeping your air ducts clean and functioning properly is critical for your HVAC system’s overall efficiency. More importantly, who you hire to maintain that system can make or break your heating and air conditioning performance.

So what should you look for in a reputable duct cleaning service? The experts at Dust Doctors have the details below.

A Track Record of Satisfied Customers

There’s no better way to find out how satisfactorily a duct cleaning company operates than to read reviews from past customers. And in the digital age, any reputable duct cleaner should have a website and online reviews.

As you search for reviews, don’t forget to research how long the company has been in business, too. A long track record of excellent service speaks volumes about both the duct cleaners’ procedures and their track record of professional conduct inside previous customers’ homes.

A Thorough Employee Vetting Process

Since you’ll need to allow a team of duct cleaning technicians inside your home it’s critical that you find out how well the company vets their employees. As you conduct your research, don’t hesitate to call and inquire about employee background checks, drug testing, and other safety precautions. You don’t want anyone shady inside your home, do you?

Comprehensive HVAC Maintenance Services

Many duct cleaning companies only address limited portions of your air duct system — don’t settle for that. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends that all professional duct cleaners place the entire duct system under negative pressure for best results.

To achieve system-wide negative pressure, the company should use high-suction, truck-mounted vacuum equipment, along with multiple specialized cleaning tools. These components should attach to the main trunk lines of your duct system to successfully funnel debris and particulate matter out of your HVAC system.

In addition to duct cleaning, a reputable company should also offer furnace cleaning and a/c cleaning to ensure your HVAC system is completely free of debris. When the furnace or air conditioner is excluded from the cleaning process, your ducts are bound to accumulate new debris much more rapidly. This affects overall system efficiency and ultimately, diminishes your indoor air quality.
