Air Duct Cleaning in the Rockford & Roscoe, IL Areas

The air we breathe day in and day out can have a profound effect on our level of comfort and overall well-being, especially for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or any other type of respiratory issue. Breathing in contaminants, such as dust, pollen, and mold, can worsen symptoms and cause a number of other problems as well. One cause of poor indoor air quality is dirty HVAC air ducts.

Why Is Air Duct Cleaning Important?

Many types of contaminants can compromise the quality of your indoor air — for example, dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, bacteria, mold, or fungi — or even a combination of these and other allergens. While some individuals are clearly more sensitive than others, there’s little question that airborne contaminants create a less-than-hospitable environment even for those with healthy respiratory systems. However, for allergy and asthma sufferers and those who battle other respiratory conditions, including those who may be fighting off a temporary respiratory illness such as a cold or flu, poorly controlled air quality can be a real problem.

If the quality of your indoor air seems poor, and it’s been several years or more since you’ve had your air ducts cleaned, it may be time to schedule a cleaning. If you can clearly see a significant amount of dust, debris, mold, or mildew inside your registers when you shine a flashlight into the interior of the space, you should schedule your duct cleaning services today.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Having your indoor air quality tested is another way to tell what level of contamination you’re dealing with and what the best course of action would be for correcting it. A professional HVAC contractor can handle this testing for you to provide concrete evidence of compromised air quality.

This testing may also be able to determine whether any issue you may be having with the quality of your indoor air is traceable to your air ducts or whether it is a smaller-scale problem that might benefit from the use of IAQ technology, such as an air humidifier or ventilator. Your HVAC pro can be a great resource in assessing the extent of the issue as well as determining the best way to address it.

Air Duct Cleaning FAQs

Is air duct cleaning worth it?

While air duct cleaning is not always required in yearly maintenance, air duct cleaning is worth it if you experience:

  • Substantial mold growth inside your ducts
  • Vermin- or insect-infested ducts
  • Clogged ducts (with dust/debris)

Can you clean air ducts yourself?

When it comes to cleaning air ducts, it is not a do-it-yourself job. It requires tools, such as a high-powered vacuum and rotary brushes, that you don’t have sitting around in the garage. Also, an improper duct cleaning job could damage the ducts, resulting in expensive repairs.

How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?

Here are some signs you need air duct cleaning:

  • You haven’t changed your filters in months
  • Your vent covers have visible dust
  • You detect mold in or around your ducts/HVAC system
  • Airflow is not consistent from room to room
  • You hear unusual noise in the ductwork

What are the benefits of air duct cleaning?

Here are some of the benefits of air duct cleaning:

  • It creates a cleaner living environment
  • It reduces allergens and irritants
  • It helps everyone breathe easier
  • It removes unpleasant smells/odors
  • It improves airflow efficiency

How often should you clean your ductwork?

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends a regular full system clean every three to five years. You can schedule duct cleaning more often if you suffer from severe allergies or live in a humid environment.

Is it important to clean your ductwork?

Your ductwork is a core part of your indoor air circulation, so when it’s infested with mold and debris, your entire home’s air quality plummets. If your family is coughing, wheezing, or suffering from frequent headaches, it might be time to arrange a clean. Just like the rest of your home, your ductwork needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly. It collects as much dirt as any other part of your household. Frequent cleaning will address mold, dust, and dander while simultaneously preventing pest infestations.

How much does it cost to clean your ducts?

Your bill will be determined by the size of your home and the model of your HVAC unit. An average home can cost between $450 and $1,000, but Axberg’s Crystal Club can lighten the load with reduced fees and discounts.

Indoor air is crucial for your family’s health, so we treat yours with the utmost care. Without routine maintenance, your HVAC unit will distribute unpurified air throughout your home, which could cause severe allergies. A professional cleaning will address indoor air pollution while simultaneously dialing up the efficacy of your unit. Our technicians will take care of all your heating and cooling components, including your fan and its housing. We’ll also let you know if your ductwork needs sealants or encapsulants. We’re trained to provide an indoor climate that suits those with respiratory illnesses such as asthma and allergic rhinitis. Our NATE-certified specialists will ensure that your home supports your health and budget. Call us to begin your ductwork journey on 815-873-6003.
