Does Air Duct Cleaning Eliminate Dust? – Duct Cleaning Metro Detroit

Does duct cleaning solve your dust problem?  Will you never have to dust your indoor living space after getting your ducts cleaned?  This seems like it would be a very simple answer but it is more complex than you may think.  There are local and national air duct cleaning companies “claiming” that if they use their service you will NEVER have to dust again.  Think again.  After having Amistee Air Duct Cleaning clean your duct system we can drastically reduce your indoor dust but we never like to say we can eliminate your dust.  This would be a false and uneducated statement if we said we could eliminate your dust problem.

We have found that the duct system can contribute to more than 70% of the indoor dust.   If you take a moment and think of indoor dust logically it makes more sense.  If your ductwork is loaded with debris (construction dust or a buildup over years) than this will probably be blowing into your home.  It is probably a good idea to get the ducts cleaned.  This is a great way to reduce the amount of dust.  We have some customers that say after we clean their home they instantly saw a reduction in the amount of household dust.

What is household dust?  Dust is made up of many things in a home.  Here is a list of possible sources of dust for you to consider.

  • Dirty Ductwork
  • Pet Dander or Hair
  • Old Carpet That Is Breaking Down
  • Skin Cells From Dry Skin (Think about adding a humidifier in your home)
  • Outdoor Air (Many people open windows and call it “fresh air” but is it really FRESH??)
  • Dirt Roads
  • Construction Sites
  • Disconnected Dryer Vent Pipe
  • Folding Clothes That Have Been Washed
  • Toilet Paper (When you rip it fibers become air born)
  • Any Indoor Remodeling Project
  • Clean Up Clutter

If you do choose to get your air ducts cleaned to help with a dust problem it MUST be done correctly in order to provide you with any results.  The entire duct system must be cleaned, not a portion, not half, not just the vent but ALL the ducts.

How Long Does Air Duct Cleaning Take? Michigan Duct Cleaning

Many people wonder how long air duct cleaning should take.  This depends on a number of factors such as the size of your home, accessibility of the ductwork, equipment of the company you hire and the experience of the technicians.  In Michigan the average sized home is roughly 1800 sq feet containing one furnace.  This size home (if cleaned by Amistee) should take roughly 2-3 hours to clean with two technicians.  It is important to know that if you hire Amistee to clean your ductwork, you will get the best equipment and highest trained employees.  We offer a real guarantee on all the work we do.  It is simple,  we care.

Duct cleaning is an industry where scams unfortunately are everywhere.  Companies may say they are using powerful equipment but are they using a vacuum truck?  Inferior equipment such as a shop vac or portable equipment mounted in a trailer or van may add to the cleaning time.  Training is key to the proper cleaning.  At Amistee we are serious about air duct cleaning and that is why training and experience are crucial.  If you hire a company that does not have the proper training this may also add to the cleaning time.

Choosing The Right Contractor for Air Duct Cleaning

When you are having anyone enter your home to perform a service you should be aware and take a few steps before allowing any work to be done.

  • Is the company licensed to perform the air duct cleaning or insulation install?
  • Are the workers coming into your home safe?  (have they had a background check) Duct cleaners see EVERY room of your house.  We do work for the Michigan State Police, County Jails etc.
  • Will the workers let you watch what they are doing and ask questions?  You are paying them and they work for YOU!  We invite our customers to watch.  We are excited about what we do and want to share that with you.
  • Is the company going to protect your home during the duct cleaning?  WE WILL!
  • Will the company show you pictures of what the ducts look like afterwards??  This is the MOST important step.  Ask to see proof of what they did.  Many companies can “talk” but do they really perform the service promised?  We will gladly show you what your air ducts look like.
  • Will the price stay the same as quoted?  We NEVER change our air duct cleaning or insulation price from the quoted price.  It just is not fair and we would not want to be treated that way.
