Get the Picture in your air ducting system

8/13/2015 (Permalink)

Dust and debris accumulate in the duct system over time.

Wouldn’t it be handy if you could take an incredible journey through your ductwork to see if cleaning is needed? Using a pocket digital camera equipped with a flash, you can come close. Simply remove a floor register, reach as far as you can into the duct (don’t drop your camera!), and take a couple of shots.

If there’s gunk within a few feet of the register, take heart. It’s easy to snake a vacuum cleaner hose into the duct and remove the stuff. However, if you see a long trail of junk and a thick coat of dust beyond what your vacuum can reach, your house may be a candidate for professional cleaning. 

Look for These Symptoms

Clogs of dust, cobwebs, and debris, or noticeable particles blowing out of supply registers

Visible mold on the inside surfaces of ducts

Rodent droppings and dead insects inside ducts

In addition, recent construction inevitably creates dust you don’t want in circulation.

SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge uses a system of whips and brushes to clean the duct lines while they are under negative air pressure. We take before and after pictures to assure cleanliness. Call us for a free estimate. (570) 235-1646.
