Duct Cleaning FAQs

Are there any health benefits that come from HVAC air duct system cleaning?

Over time, contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria and dust can collect in an HVAC air duct network. Cleaning the ducts will help keep these harmful particles from the air you breathe inside your home, which in turn can help the health of you and your family.

How should a residential HVAC air duct system be cleaned?

A residential HVAC air duct system should be cleaned by a professional certified company that utilizes the proper methods of air duct cleaning. The process should involve using a powerful vacuum to draw air through the network by placing the system under negative pressure. Debris is drawn to the vacuum without any harmful reentry into the living or working space.

What is the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA)?

NADCA Members have signed a Code of Ethics stating they will do everything possible to protect the consumer and follow NADCA Standards. Air duct cleaning companies must meet stringent requirements to become a NADCA Member. Among those requirements, all NADCA Members must have certified Air System Cleaning Specialists (ASCS) on staff, who have taken and passed the NADCA Certification Examination. Passing the exam demonstrates extensive knowledge in HVAC design and cleaning methodologies. ASCS staff are also required to further their industry education by attending seminars in order to maintain their NADCA certification status.

Benson's is proud to be a NADCA member. To learn more or to schedule an air duct cleaning service, contact us today!

How long should it take to clean a typical residential HVAC air duct system?

The amount of time it takes to clean a residential HVAC system depends on many variables such as the size of the home, the number of systems, the extent of the contamination and the number of HVAC cleaners performing the job. On average the service takes approximately 2 - 4 hours, though it could take longer with a complex or very neglected network.

How often should my air ducts be cleaned?

Air duct cleaning frequency depends on several considerations, including:

  1. Usage: High-use systems may require more frequent cleaning.
  2. Allergies: Allergy sufferers may benefit from more frequent cleaning.
  3. Pets: Pet hair and dander can accumulate quickly, necessitating more frequent cleaning.
  4. Environment: Dusty or humid environments may require more frequent cleaning.
    In general, air ducts should be inspected every 3-5 years and cleaned as needed based on these factors. Homes with specific concerns may benefit from more frequent cleaning.

What You Should Know About Air Duct Cleaning

There are many important things to remember about what your air duct cleaning service should encompass:

  • Includes Ducts & HVAC System - The service should include a thorough cleaning of not just the ductwork in your home, but your heating and cooling system as well. Cleaning the HVAC will ensure particles and dust that have accumulated inside do not immediately flow into the ducts when turned on after cleaning. This thoroughness also helps ensure your unit lasts longer and runs more efficiently, while your ducts are free and clean of debris as well.
  • Uses Negative Pressure - After brushing the ducts to loosen particles and debris, technicians will employ continuous negative pressure, or put the entire duct under a large vacuum system, to allow all of the particles to be captured. This ensures that even fine airborne particles are trapped.
  • Complicated Access - In some cases, access to clean the ducts may be very hard to reach. Service openings may need to be cut into and then closed properly. It’s important to hire a service that takes the time to accurately cut and repair ducts where necessary instead of skipping a section because it is too hard to reach.
  • NADCA Accredited - For the precise and thorough cleansing of your ductwork system, consider only using a company that is accredited by NADCA, or the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. In order to be a member of this organization, you have to follow their stringent guidelines that guarantee a higher level of service.
