Have you ever sent your teenager or young child out on a household cleaning task or chore, like cleaning out the fridge, or mowing the lawn? Perhaps you can relate to a job “not so well done”, like opening the fridge only to find mild re-arranging, pasta leftovers from three weeks ago, and refrigerator shelves that still haven’t been wiped clean. Or maybe you arrived home after the lawn was supposed to be mowed, only to see the mower bag full, the gas tank empty, and one corner of the lawn missed entirely!
These may be teachable moments when it comes to around the house chores, but when it comes to the air duct cleaning tasks in your home that can affect your health, comfort, and safety, the team here at Bovio has developed a thorough process that goes above and beyond many other air duct cleaning services in NJ.
How Do Ducts Get Dirty?
The ductwork associated with your central heating and cooling system handles most, if not all, of the air you breathe in your home. Your ductwork also handles the dirt, dust, allergens, chemicals, and other harmful particles that can enter your home in a number of ways, from open doors and windows to the tiny invisible cracks throughout your home.
As your air carries these contaminants into your home, they are sucked into the intake of your heating and cooling system. Ideally, the air filter would remove all of these contaminants, but this is not always the reality. It is also common for leaks in your ductwork to allow more dust, dirt, and debris to settle in your ductwork. The buildup then re-enters your breathing air, affecting the health of those in your home, and is recirculated through the intake all over again. This can cause a number of issues, including:
- Increased allergy-like symptoms in your home
- Dust buildup
- Reduced efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment
- Increased risk of mold growth
The Bovio Process of Residential Air Duct Cleaning
Now that you know how ducts can get dirty, you also know why it is so important to clean them thoroughly! What makes this difficult is the fact that ductwork is largely hidden from view, and it’s too small of an area to clean without specialized equipment.
Here at Bovio, we utilize the best AC duct cleaning technology available, including:
What would you use to clean your ducts? A vacuum, a brush, maybe a duster? What about using all three combined into one piece of equipment? That’s the Rotobrush! This handy tool gets into all the nooks and crannies, and instead of simply stirring up the dust and grime (which many other types of cleaning equipment will do), it sucks it up into a HEPA filter for safe disposal.
Roto-Vision Video Inspection Cameras
We might not be able to get into your ducts ourselves, but we can send our small cameras in! This gives us a before and after visual, so that we can know how much work is needed before we start, as well as to verify that we did not miss anything before we finish your residential duct cleaning service.
