Return Vent Cleaning Melbourne
Ventilation systems may contribute to the creation of indoor air pollutants and these vents can get clogged with dust or become blocked by household debris such as leaves and twigs, coating the interior components of the unit and ultimately reducing their efficiency.
An efficient ventilation system is essential for the proper movement of conditioned air throughout your home, providing cost-effective energy year-round. It also ensures that no pollutants or bacteria are lurking within your heating or cooling system.
We recommend that you have your return vents cleaned annually to ensure they are free from any obstructions and do not absorb dust which can reduce performance.
You can book your annual return vent cleaning with Metro Duct Cleaning by calling us today.
We are one of the most trusted return vent cleaners in Melbourne because we use safe and non-toxic chemicals to remove dust, dirt, mould, bacteria or other contaminants from the air conditioning vents.
Why is it essential to clean your return vents?
Return vent cleaning ensures that the air you are breathing is clean. This is also important because dirty vents can cause damage to your heating or cooling system, waste energy, and may even create safety hazards inside the home.
You might be surprised at how much debris accumulates in your return vents over time. The air in your home is recirculated through the return vents, meaning that particles from your carpeting, flooring and walls are sucked into the ventilation system to be filtered or re-circulated.
Complications can arise when these contaminants become trapped inside the components of your heating or cooling unit. This may result in several issues including:
- Reduced performance of the system, resulting in increased energy costs and less effective climate control.
- Damage to your unit's fans due to overheating, overloading or degradation of the motor. This may contribute to additional noise from your vent system and ultimately lead to an expensive replacement.
- Contamination of the heating or cooling coils with dirt, grime and bacteria. This may result in reduced heating or cooling efficiency or an increase of bacteria throughout your home.
- Growth of mould or fungi inside the unit, leading to potential health issues for yourself, your family members and pets.
Our return vent cleaning procedure
Our experts follow a moisture-free cleaning process that can minimise damage to your ducting systems and other components. We start by vacuuming the return vents to get rid of all debris, dirt, and other contaminants.
Once the areas have been vacuumed, we apply a germicidal solution to help kill any bacteria, viruses or mould spores that may be present. This helps reduce allergy symptoms and irritations, as well as reducing the chance of respiratory illnesses.
After the return vents have been treated, we will vacuum them once again to remove any excess residue and ensure that no disinfectant is left behind.
Finally, we use high-powered air movers to help dry your system as quickly as possible. This minimises the risk of damage to components due to moisture or dampness.
What are the signs of a dirty return vent?
There are a few signs that you know your return vent is dirty. When air or debris gets stuck inside the ducts, it will cause breathing issues and make the system work harder to circulate air around your home.
A dirty return vent can also lead to higher energy bills. This is because the system uses more energy to heat or cool the property than it would if the return vents were clean.
You will also notice an unpleasant smell coming from the vents and other parts of your HVAC system. This is caused by mould spores and other bacteria growing inside the ducts and restricting airflow.
If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended that you call us immediately to help resolve the issue before it becomes worse.
Benefits of having your return vent cleaned
