Mirror Ducts Cleaning Procedure
- In most homes, originating from the furnace, you will notice a rectangular box known as the main trunk line running the length of your home or other areas. The metal tubes that branch off of the main trunk duct going places throughout your home known are known as supply ducts. When your furnace blower turns on, air passes through the main trunk duct to all the branches allowing warm or cold air to make its way throughout your home. The return side of the system is the process in which air returns back to your furnace from your home through the air filter. The return side of the system is designed differently as you may notice that a metal pan passes through the joist in the ceiling and utilizing the studs through the wall cavity that lead to the cold air return pan.
- Unlike some of our competitors, Mirror Ducts cleans both the supply and return side of the air duct system ensuring that the system is completely dust free. By placing the system under negative pressure and blocking off the registers throughout your home we can generate a lot of vacuum power to properly clean your system
- After we connect our vacuum hose to the main trunk line we make small access holes in the air ducts to feed agitation tools through the ducts to help loosen any debris.
- After the cleaning process has been completed, all access holes and openings will be completely sealed making the system air tight. We use only industry approved metal patches and duct plugs.
- It is recommended to do a duct cleaning in your home every 3-5 years. This will help expand the life of your furnace and maintain healthy indoor air quality throughout your home.
Importance of Proper Air Duct Cleaning
- It is important to keep in mind that all duct cleaners are not the same and that not every duct cleaner can give you the same results. Experience, understanding duct design, proper use of equipment and attention to detail are very important when it comes to air duct cleaning.
- Remember, anyone can show up to your house with a shop vac and vacuum your vents, but not everyone is licensed and certified to understand duct design, let alone show up at your home with proper equipment.
