You may be inclined to perform a DIY air duct cleaning to save some money. Fresh Air Duct Cleaning understands that money can be an issue for some households, so DIY projects are some of the best ways to save. While we do understand your reasoning, we highly advise against DIY air duct cleaning.

Fresh Air Duct Cleaning strives to make the entire service easy and affordable for customers. The price of our air duct cleaning is extremely affordable for all types of homeowners. For that reason, access to our services is as easy as picking up the phone. Plus, DIY air duct cleanings are unable to provide the same level of efficiency as professional cleanings.

Inadequate Tools

You can find plenty of guides online detailing how to clean your own air ducts. They’ll have a list of tools that you need for the job. Tools such as a vacuum, brush, and paper towels are usually on the list. These tools can clean your air ducts, but never to the extent of our state-of-the-art technology.

DIY air duct cleaning with brush

You can easily clean your own vents with a brush and paper towel. This process is easy, but when addressing the air pollutants further in your air duct, your tools become a problem. Your vacuum hose can only reach so far into the air duct. On the other hand, Fresh Air Duct Cleaning’s machines have hoses that reach more than 40 feet away.

Furthermore, the sucking power of your vacuum does not compare to the tools we use. Our technology has a rotating 450 RPM brush capable of collecting dirt, dust, dander, and other air pollutants. With such powerful tools for the job, no DIY project can be as efficient as a professional air duct cleaning. Our team can remove the air pollutants from your air ducts without flaw.

Importance of Clean Air

Fresh Air Duct Cleaning and the National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) recommend homeowners receive an air duct cleaning every three years. Those with pets and respiratory conditions will want to receive more frequent cleanings. When cleaning your own air ducts, you have inadequate tools to perform the job. As a result, your air ducts remain dirty and full of indoor air pollutants.

Indoor air pollutants are often more concentrated indoors than outdoor air pollutants. Common indoor air pollutants include dust, dander, pollen, mold spores, cigarette or chimney smoke, carbon monoxide, and radon. These pollutants significantly reduce the quality of indoor air, which can cause short and long-term symptoms. Short term symptoms of poor indoor air quality include:

  • shortness of breath
  • coughing
  • sneezing
  • chest pains
  • sore throat
  • irritated or dry eyes
  • fatigue

women with sore throat

All of these symptoms are found with other conditions, too, so you may not link them to poor indoor air quality right away. The long-term effects are the worst part of poor indoor air quality because they are severe diseases. Poor indoor air quality is linked to an increased chance of developing heart disease and respiratory conditions. With such serious diseases potentially developing from poor indoor air quality, it is essential you avoid DIY air duct cleaning.
