How Professional Duct Cleaning Can Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality
We have all been spending a lot of time at home recently and making sure we are keeping ourselves healthy by cleaning our homes and our hands. But are you also making sure the air you breathe in your home is as pure and healthy as possible?
Cleaning your home’s air ductwork can improve your indoor air quality and reduce allergens and odors while improving the function and lifespan of your HVAC system.
Reasons you may need your ducts cleaned.
Your home’s air ducts should be cleaned up to every five years. Here are some reasons you may want to hire a professional to clean your ductwork.
- You have pets that shed. Animals can shed dander and fur that wind up in your ducts and distributed through your home. It can also impede your HVAC’s efficiency.
- You have someone in the home who has a compromised immune system or allergy-related illness. Thorough cleaning of your home is important to mitigate any possible health complications. Cleaning your ductwork can be part of that decontamination process.
- You recently had some home remodeling work. Home renovation can cause pollutants to get into your duct system even if your contractor sealed off your ducts during the work.
- You notice mold growth inside the ductwork or on other parts of your heating and cooling system. It could mean your insulated air ducts have gotten wet which would require a full replacement.
- You’re replacing your HVAC system. Make sure your ductwork complements your new HVAC system and its upgraded efficiency by being cleared and free of any debris.
Why Should I Hire a Professional?
It’s imperative your ductwork is cleaned by a professional. Without the proper training and necessary tools, cleaning your ductwork could release contaminants into your home or damage your HVAC system.
At APOLLO Home, our experts use a professional-grade negative air blower system to pull air in reverse through the duct system, while using compressed air and agitation tools to remove the dust, dirt and debris from your home’s duct system. All vents and return covers are removed during the process and wiped down for cleanliness. All air discharged by the machine runs through three stages of filtration including a final HEPA stage. During the HEPA or High-Efficiency Particulate Air stage, filters capture microscopic particulates for the cleanest filtration of dander, mites, pollen, mold spores and tiny dust particles.
Breathe easy knowing when you hire Apollo Home for Duct Cleaning, you are taking a great step to improve the health of your family, and efficiency of your home.
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
