Why You Need Professionals to Clean Your Air Ducts

Regular air duct cleaning is an important household task that you should have done every other year, or whenever you notice heavy congestion in the vents around your house. (High heating and cooling bills are also another warning sign to look out for.) But this isn’t a task that you can arrange to do as just another part of spring cleaning: air duct cleaning is a job for professionals only, as we’ll explain.

Fortunately, it is simple to locate quality services for air duct cleaning in Jacksonville, FL and the surrounding communities. You only have to call up J & W Heating and Air and speak to one of our indoor air quality specialists. We handle many services to help maintain the ventilation system of homes. Along with air duct cleaning, we also perform duct testing and sealing. You can reach us 24 hours a day whenever you need emergency service.

The Importance of Professional Air Duct Cleaning

Try this: open up an air vent in your home, one that you can easily reach. Now try to put your hand into it. It may not fit. If it does, it won’t go far down into the air shaft. Even with a long broom or the flexible hose of a vacuum cleaner, you can’t access much of the extensive interior of the ventilation system on your own. You could only clean off the area around the vents. (We do advise cleaning the vent covers on a regular basis, however, as it helps with airflow.)

Furthermore, you can’t apply the level of cleaning necessary on your own. A broom or a commercial vacuum will only pick up superficial layers of dust and dirt. The contamination that gets into ductwork becomes deeply embedded in the walls, and it takes professional equipment to remove it so the ductwork contains as little air resistance as possible. There are some types of pollutants that require special remediation techniques.

What professionals do to clean air ducts is attach a large power vacuum onto the ventilation system and seal off all the other access points. The enormous vacuum alters the pressure throughout the ventilation system, which agitates contaminants from the walls of the air ducts. The vacuum can then easily draw in most of the dirt, dust, dander, pollen, and other particles to provide thoroughly cleaned ducts. Technicians will also use agitation equipment that can reach far down into the vents to help clean tougher areas.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company again.read more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two men.read more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
