What is air duct cleaning? There are many ways to perform air duct cleaning in Michigan and Metro Detroit but it all comes down to one thing, total removal of the debris on the inside of the ductwork. Air duct cleaning in Michigan can be done in many ways. Some companies use portable equipment to collect all of the debris from the inside of a duct system. This type of company will take the piece of equipment inside of your home and hook it up to your air duct system. Others may use a trailer mounted vacuum system and run a suction hose from the trailer mounted vacuum into your home. The last type of vacuum equipment used to clean air ducts in Michigan is a vacuum truck. This type of equipment is what Amistee Air Duct Cleaning uses to clean air ducts in Michigan. A vacuum truck is a truck that is made specifically for air duct cleaning and can not be used for anything else. The vacuum runs off of the engine of the truck. The power of vacuum equipment from air duct cleaning starts with portable equipment and ends with the vacuum truck. Air duct cleaning vacuum trucks move anywhere between 15,000-17,000 CFM (depending on the truck) while trailers and portable equipment may move anywhere between 3,500-6,000 CFM. CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute. This is the amount of air moved every minute. The higher the number the more powerful the equipment is.
While the type of equipment used to clean air ducts is important in air duct cleaning, it is not the end all. You must have a company perform a thorough cleaning in order to loosen up and remove all of the unwanted debris. We recommend that if you are going to choose an air duct cleaner in Michigan to choose an air duct cleaning company that is a member of NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association). We also recommend that you check to make sure that they are state licensed and insured. It is also a good idea to check with past customers to make sure they are satisfied with the work.
Air ducts can accumulate debris over many years of your heating and cooling system running. Without proper cleaning by a professional air duct cleaning company, debris can be filtered into your home for your and your family to breath. It is important to know what air duct cleaning is and how it can benefit you and your family if done correctly.
