Smoke Smell in Ductwork – Duct Cleaning MI

When you move into a new home you do not know exactly what you are getting into in all aspects.  You will most likely do a walk through and in most cases hire an inspector to point out areas of concern.  At Amistee Duct Cleaning it is common to get people calling with complaints of smoke smell coming from the ductwork.  They say that the carpet has been replaced and all the walls painted but there is still a pungent odor in the house.  What do they do?

It is common to overlook the HVAC system as a source of odor and in many cases this is the direct cause of the odor.  If someone has smoked inside of the home the heating and cooling ducts will pick up this odor and hold onto it until the system has been properly cleaned.

Above are the before and after pictures from duct cleaning in Ann Arbor MI where the previous home owner had smoked.  After the cleaning it dramatically increased the air quality and smell coming from the ductwork.  Call Amistee in Michigan today at 248-349-8877 to see what we can do for you.  CLICK HERE TO RECEIVE A FREE ONLINE QUOTE.

Go to the “contact us page” within our website for our customer service reps to kindly contact you within 1 hour of our business hours. Here are a few tips to ask before hiring a company.

1.) Is the duct cleaning contractor going to make access ports and doors to ensure the system is properly cleaned? Amistee does.
2.) Is the company going to inspect your ducts before they start cleaning to make sure you do not have any asbestos wrapped ductwork? (we typically only see this on homes built before the 70’s)

4.) Is the air duct cleaner going to protect your home from their equipment? Amistee uses clean tarps, corner guards and shoe covers ALWAYS
5.) Is the duct cleaner going to agitate your ductwork with a tool like an air whip or brush? The vacuum is not enough. There must be some sort of cleaning method that will dislodge the debris. Amistee will access every vent and piece of ductwork.
6.) Will the contractor seal everything up? This seems self like common sense but we see companies that CHARGE EXTRA! Amistee does not
