Due to its delicate nature, flex duct should only be cleaned by a professional. The flexible ducts, or flexible duct, found in a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system consist of three components. The outer layer is a polyethylene protective liner. The layer beneath the liner is fiberglass insulation. The interior layer is polyethylene liner with embedded round metal wire to maintain the shape of the duct. There are several reasons why flex duct would be used. The first is that it is simple to assemble and manipulate so if you have to avoid obstacles flex duct would be the easier to work with. The second is that flex duct is cost-effective because it is inexpensive and insulated to help with rising energy costs. There are also some very important precautions to take when using flex duct in an HVAC system.
The length of the runs of flex duct should be kept short to avoid static from building up and reducing air flow. Also, the polyethylene liner can deteriorate over time or rodents can easily chew through the liner and the ductwork would need to be replaced. Another reason you may need the flexible duct replaced is if the cleaning crew that was hired to clean the flex duct hose did not do it properly and damaged or tore the inner liner. If the inner liner is torn or punctured, the fiberglass fibers will filter throughout your HVAC system and pollute your indoor air causing a health hazard. Amistee understands the importance of providing a professional and complete cleaning of the ductwork in your business or home and takes careful consideration to maintain the integrity of your flex duct.
When you choose Amistee, you are expecting the best in air duct cleaning and we take that expectation seriously. Before our technicians begin the cleaning of the flex duct, they will inspect the quality of the interior liner to make sure that it has not deteriorated to the point where it needs to be replaced. They will then strategically select the proper tools to perform a comprehensive cleaning of the flexible duct. Our team is equipped with air whips that use compressed air to loosen or agitate anything that has accumulated within the ductwork. Then, using specific methods that maintain the pressurization in the flex duct, the debris is pulled down through the ductwork using negative air pressure, out through our vacuum hose that is connected to the main line of your ductwork and properly disposed of in our PTO driven vacuum truck. It is a strategic flex duct cleaning process that the technicians at Amistee have perfected in order to give you the confidence that the flexible duct was cleaned properly.
