Underfloor Duct Cleaning Melbourne
The ducts in your home can quickly become a haven for dirt, dust and grime. It is essential to have them professionally cleaned at least once a year or more frequently depending on usage.
A professional company should be able to determine the proper treatment for your underfloor ducts based on a thorough inspection.
The inspection will require them to enter each room in your home and inspect the ducts in there.
Experts will then use a cleaning agent that is non-toxic or one that is biodegradable if possible after which they vacuum the whole area up again.
By hiring an experienced company, you can ensure that your ducts are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised without risking damage to them or exposing your household to toxic fumes.
The advantages of an underfloor duct cleaning service
Your underfloor ducts transport heated and cooled air throughout your home through a series of pipes and vents. As air travels through them, some of it gets diverted outside but not all of the air returns to where it came from. Most of this will accumulate inside your ductwork over time and create dust and debris that can be hazardous to the health of you and your family.
By hiring a professional duct cleaning company, you can ensure the safety of your home by having all contaminated air cleaned out. This will also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system because it will be able to produce more heating or cooling with less waste. Not only are you improving the air quality inside your home, but you will also be saving on your monthly utility bills.
What happens during an underfloor duct cleaning service?
Underfloor duct cleaning services will normally include cleaning the air handler, the furnace or heat exchanger, the evaporation coil, fans and vents. The entire system will be assessed to determine if any repair work or replacements are necessary.
The underfloor duct cleaning service should also include the removal of all debris found in your vents. A professional company will use special equipment, such as high-powered vacuums, brushes and blower hoses, to completely remove all dust and debris.
An underfloor air duct cleaning service normally takes between four to six hours for a full system or two hours for just one zone.
The exact time will depend on the size of your HVAC system and how much debris is present.
How much does it cost to have an underfloor duct cleaned?
Once you decide to hire a professional company, you can expect to pay between $100 and $400 for the full system. However, this is not an exact estimate. There are many variables that will influence how much your final bill will be, including the size of your HVAC system.
Our experts will also inspect all components to provide an accurate quote for your underfloor duct cleaning service. Your bill will include labour, equipment rental and any other charges related to the job. If you have any repairs or replacements made to your HVAC system, you can expect to pay more for this service.
When should you have your underfloor ducts cleaned?
There are specific times when you should have your underfloor ducts cleaned. If you are planning on selling your home within the next couple of years, having this done prior to listing it for sale will also help increase its value.
If you are not planning to move anytime soon or plan on having repairs made, it is still important to have an underfloor air duct cleaning service done every three years.
This will ensure the health of your family and help prevent any problems with your HVAC system.
For those who suffer from allergies, this service may need to be completed more often.
For example, you might want to have your system cleaned after any renovation work or when there are major changes in the air quality in your home.
