3 Benefits of a Professional Duct Cleaning

3 Benefits of a Professional Duct Cleaning

Duct Cleaning: Should I Have Mine Done? Over time, it is natural for ducts, fans, and registers to accumulate dirt, dust, pollen, and particles. If moisture becomes present, there is potential for musty odors or mold to grow. Many people call asking questions about the process of duct cleaning; when to get ducts cleaned, allergies associated with air ducts, and associated costs.

Duct cleaning is done to remove dust, debris, and allergens from various heating and cooling system components of a forced-air system.  During our cleaning process, A Mountain Mechanical Tech, will scrub and vacuum out your ducts using a high-powered suctioning system. Supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, drip pans, fan motor, fan housing, and the air handling unit housing are all cleaned during this process.

It is highly advised to also have your dryer vents purged to remove lint build-up and dust from your drying system.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning

  • Preventative Maintenance – A clean system will run smoother and more efficiently making your furnace work less while extending the life of your system. In a case where furnace filters are not being changed regularly, a cleaning may be even more pertinent for preventative maintenance.
  • SafetyFire Risk: A clean system, including dryer duct cleaning, helps to minimize potential fire hazards and risks. Dust and lint catch fire easily and can increase the speed of which fire spreads through your house.
  • Health – Air Pollution: A clean system helps minimize air pollution, dust, and pollen, that is pushed into your home environment. Dirty ducts may be a cause of indoor allergies or have other effects on your health.

We suggest you consider getting a duct cleaning every 5 to 10 years.

The cost and time associated with a duct cleaning are hinged on the square footage of your home and the number of registers you have. The level of contamination, access to the heating system, and the request for dryer vent cleaning may also change the quote.

COVID Update – no After Hours Services

COVID Update – no After Hours Services

Due to current circumstances with the COVID-19 virus, and our continued effort to keep our employees and our customers safe, we will not be offering any after-hours services. We are still scheduling appointments during regular business hours, for customers who are able to pass some screening questions. The technicians are all practicing social distancing, limiting time inside customers’ homes, and disinfecting things regularly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our valued customers. This is unfamiliar territory for everyone, and we are all managing things the best we can.

Stay safe, and if you need us, you can still call 907-344-0700 anytime, and we’ll get back to you when the office opens for the next business day.

We value all of our customers and greatly appreciate all of your patience and understanding!

COVID-19 Updates

We appreciate your patience while we continue to operate the business, for as long as possible, with the smallest amount of inconvenience to our valued customers.

The health and safety of our employees is of the upmost importance, and we will continue to provide service, as long as it is safe. We understand that many have been given 2 weeks off work, and it may be appealing to schedule service during that time off, but if you are sick, have recently traveled, or have family in your home, that has recently returned from traveling, please refrain from scheduling any non-emergent appointments, anywhere, until you have completed the quarantine period, without symptoms.

In order to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to practice the social distancing standard, set by the CDC/WHO, our technicians may not shake your hand, may keep a safe distance, and/or request that you call in credit cards to the office. Please understand that we always strive to provide professional and polite service, but also need to practice safe measures when in your homes.

We have also instituted a mandatory quarantine for a few of our employees that have recently traveled, or have family members who have recently come home from travelling outside of Alaska. That being said, we are running short staffed on technicians and office staff.

We will keep you up-to-date with any changes as we follow the federal, state and local COVID-19 protocol. Thank you again for your patience and understanding!
