There are several variables that affect cost of services:
Type of ductwork
Level of contamination
Amplitude of areas
Early of the day the service may begin.
With the address of the property, we can quote sanitization service and to have an approximate idea of the cleaning cost. Ducts sealing, coating and recovering services require inspection to establish severity of deterioration.
Consider non serious ads offering special prices without home information, just imagine $99.00 whole house cleaning ducts, or $19.00 per outlet, you will not get a right service. This profession requires seriousness, clarity and honesty. Avoid sales gimmicks.
To treat microbial contamination such as viruses like covid, bacteria and fungi. We apply antimicrobial solution registered by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) specifically for use in HVAC systems.
After covid experience to kill virus spores that remain recirculating inside. home, and to prevent respiratory diseases at home you would do well keeping air conditioning system clean and disinfected.
Establishing an amount is difficult because it depends on the type and state of the air system as well as its use. A system that is kept clean will work better and less time, therefore consume less power energy.
With coating treatment the lined ducts will not deteriorate and therefore avoid the high cost of having to change them, here there is a cost benefit ratio of no less than 5 to 1.
The coating also saves money because it remedies leaks that lead to costly moisture damage repairs and higher energy consumption. It is also difficult to measure the degree of productivity of people by having the lungs of their home free of impure and toxins.
If you are moving, do the cleaning prior occupancy of the new home. If you have done any remodeling, you should clean the system as soon as the work is finished. If you or any family member have or had covid, do at least a sanitization.
For occupation without the previous cases, frequency of cleaning will depend on some factors like:
If you have pets especially those who shed lot of hair, If you live near high traffic roads, or recent constructions, if you have neglected to change the coil filters, if you or any other smoke in the house, in cases of asthma, allergies, respiratory illness, perform annual cleaning. Other conditions, every three years is ok. If the air ducts system shows signs of fiberglass shedding, the cleaning will not suffice, Never contract brush cleanings, these will do the problem worse.
Our inspection determines the state of the air conditioning system (equipment and ducts) in terms of dirt, contamination and fiberglass detachment and the possibility of remediation to avoid the high cost and trauma of ducts replacement. This Inspection includes:
Moisture – Fungus Examination
Fiberglass Detachment Examination
Bacteria – Viruses by Microbial Test if need.
Optimal – poor cooling condition
Air Flow Delivery Measurement
Thermal Load By Area
Estimate with pictures
Without the experience of having inhabited a house, especially homes of 10 or more years, our examination establish these very deep conditions that will be problem for new owners.
Moisture, fungus, Fiberglass detachment, bacteria, viruses test are essential for the common, hidden and harmful problems that into Air ducts are usually.
Air flow delivery measurement and Thermal Load by Area will show rooms with not enough air flow for a fresh living area caused by serious leaks, insufficient equipment or improper ducts distribution.
The most HVAC technicians are focused on the machine not in ducts, home inspectors can’t check items like these. Buyers need key information revealing hidden problems to negotiate with sellers; these problems will represent expensive repairs, uncomfortable and unhealthy environments for families.
The average cost of this Inspection is $250.00 to maximum $750.00. according to living area. This amount that buyer paid us, at last, will be paid for seller into the negotiation. If we carry out the solution work, we will reimburse the cost of the examination.
Even an excellent cleaning has been done with the system off, the dust of construction stays on places like walls and ceilings that air conditioner will suction, check filters to have idea. If filter is full of dust in few days, you will need duct cleaning in few months.
– May be you want to avoid future duct board erosion and deterioration, moisture fungi and bacteria growing, You will need a duct board coating service.
