Sanitizing the Air Ducts in Your Home

The air ducts around your home serve a dual purpose. They funnel either warm or cool air into each room, depending on the current season. These conduits are busy pathways, and most residents don’t think too much about their maintenance. Sanitizing your ducts is a service that may or may not be suitable for your situation. A qualified Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) can inspect your ventilation system and recommend if sanitation is a good idea for your home. Discover the facts surrounding this service so that you can make an educated decision.

How it Works

Every HVAC company offers a slightly different service when it comes to sanitizing air ducts. Technicians typically use one of three strategies, including chemical applications, plant-based liquids or ultraviolet-light services.

The technician applies a sanitizing option to the lengths of your ducts. There might be a drying process added afterward. You’re left with ducts that are completely clean of any particles.

Sanitizing is different than a standard cleaning. The sanitizing option actually kills off microbes and other growths. You might consider this option if you have allergy sufferers at home or run a business.

  • Regular duct cleaning does not kill mold and bacteria

  • You may not need to sanitize your ducts

  • There are options to sanitize your ducts without harmful chemicals

  • Sanitation can remove unpleasant odors

Removing Harmful Mold and Bacteria

The main reason why you’d want sanitizing performed on your home’s ducts is mold and bacteria control. Your ducts cannot be cleaned in conventional ways. Many of their lengths aren’t easy to reach. It’s difficult for the professionals to reach the areas too. If there’s a good habitat for microbes to grow, air ducts are a perfect hiding space.

There might be some water trapped in the duct from condensation or a nearby leak. The duct is often insulated, which makes it a warm space where the water remains trapped. Mold spores and bacteria can easily reach these areas and replicate with astonishing speed. The growths create their own spores, which might sicken the household over time. Your air ducts simply move the spores across the entire property.

Extinguishing Those Unusual Scents

The average household will cook nearly every day. You might have a kitchen exhaust to pull those cooking fumes away from the main living areas, but grease and other particles will find their way into the HVAC system. You’re left with some unusual scents emanating from the furnace or air conditioner on subsequent days.

Sanitizing the ducts will extinguish those lingering scents. The cleaning process removes any grease or buildup along the surfaces. When you turn on the system next time, the air will be as clean as possible.

Looking at the Possible Health Concerns

There’s been some concern over health issues that might arise with sanitizing your air ducts. As the cleaning process progresses, chemicals might emerge from the conduits. These molecules can irritate the residents’ respiratory systems.

Think about the health of your family before opting for a sanitizing process. A simple cleaning may be all that’s necessary. Every household can make an educated decision as a result.

Work with reputable professionals who understand the sanitizing process. Research your choices and understand how to select a duct cleaning company before hiring anyone. The best technicians will evaluate each home for its candidacy. Clean air ducts will improve the home’s comfort and allergen level any time of year.

We recently moved into a newly built home and heard that we should have our air ducts cleaned due to the construction dust. Air Busters was very professional, walked us through the whole process, completed the job on time, and was reasonably priced. We were amazed to see what came out of our air ducts! We would definitely recommend Air Busters to our friends and family.

They did great work at my house I’ve had them by twice now. Once I when bought our home. And the second time was on the arrival of my child.

John - Windsor, ON

I have lived in my home for 32 years and never had the duct work cleaned!! They showed me pictures before and after service and could not believe how bad they were. Looked like new after cleaning. They also noticed my dryer venting duct work was in poor condition and a fire hazard and recommended it be replaced. The drier occasionally blew fuses and hasn’t blown a fuse since serviced. In all, they were very honest, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

As an owner of multiple rental homes I need to ensure when I have work done it is done properly the first time so I do not disrupt my tenants any more than I have to, and Air Busters did just that. From the beginning, setting up multiple appointments was so stress free and they worked around mine and my tenant’s schedules which was extremely helpful. The staff on site was nothing short of professional and extremely knowledgeable when I had questions about my ducts and their condition. They were courteous enough to take before and after photos to show me their work and took the time to explain the benefits of maintaining my systems. My experience was Air Busters was pleasant from start to finish and I would recommend them to all of my family, friends and business associates.
