Duct and furnace cleaning services are provided by most of the major air conditioning appliance companies. They clean out the main trunk and equipment, which collects dirt, dust, and pollen that can cause allergies or illness among those who have sensitive allergic systems. However, ducts also collect moisture from humidifiers or dryers and must be cleaned regularly to prevent mold, mildew or bacterial growth.
The ducts also need to be kept clean so they don’t leak dangerous gases like carbon monoxide into a home. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas that is very toxic to humans; even small amounts can kill if they are not detected quickly enough by a CO detector in your home.
Furnace cleaning is also recommended to remove the dust, dirt, and debris that accumulates in the furnace’s heat exchanger and motor area. The heat exchanger must be kept clear of buildup because it contains coils that pull in cool air from your home to meet the heater’s demand for warm air. When your furnace works hard to meet its heating needs, any build up in the heat exchanger reduces its ability to efficiently pull in clean air.
A thorough cleaning service should include:
- Deep cleaning of all vents including plenum and trunk line (the large round opening on top of the HVAC unit) plus return vents.
- Deep cleaning of air handler (the part that blows the air) and outside unit.
- Cleaning all filters including the main filter on the furnace.
- Cleaning all registers, grilles, diffusers, and fans in the home.
- Disinfection of heating system components and disinfectant treatment of air ducts and vents.
How Duct and Furnace Cleaning Works
Duct and furnace cleaning services help to ensure that your heating system is working efficiently, which in turn provides more even and comfortable temperatures throughout the house. It also ensures that your HVAC equipment is more sustainable, in turn saving you money because it will need less repair and maintenance.
The professionals use high-powered vacuums to remove debris from the air ducts. These air ducts are an important part of your heating and cooling system because they provide a direct route for waste air from furnaces to be removed from homes or commercial buildings. The filters on these systems can collect dirt particles that would otherwise circulate through the building causing unhealthy indoor air quality. It’s important that these filters are checked regularly because if too much dirt builds up in these systems, the fans may not be able to circulate air effectively. This can cause poor indoor air quality and may even prevent furnaces from heating or cooling properly.
Duct and furnace cleaning services also emphasize the importance of duct sealing on your heating system. Duct sealing prevents cold air from escaping from the basement or crawl space through semi-permeable ducts. If too much heat is lost through the ducts, then your furnace won’t be able to keep up with demand when a lot of warm air is needed, such as on an extremely cold day.
Another benefit of duct and furnace cleaning services is that they can provide better air quality for your home. If your system is not working efficiently, then it could be circulating unhealthy air through the house. Air ducts are an important part of the filtering process so if they are clogged, it prevents them from doing their job effectively. Ducts may also become contaminated with mold or bacteria over time which may be circulated through the building by the air system. The professionals will ensure that your air ducts are clean and free of contaminants before beginning any work on your heating system.
A lot of homeowners don’t realize how much dust builds up in their ductwork until they have it professionally cleaned.

I always say that you can tell a lot about the cleanliness of an individual’s home just by looking at their floor. But what does that have to do with duct and furnace cleaning services? Simple: the cleaner your air, the better your air quality. Airborne pollutants in our homes and buildings can be passed around through diffusion, so it is important to not only keep humidity levels low in a building but also remove those pollutants from the air we are breathing. We explore below how duct and fan systems work as well as how these systems need cleaning on occasion.
Air in our homes is often stale or polluted. Air quality problems can be caused by dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander and other pollutants that may be tracked in the shoes of visitors or brought in with the morning’s newspaper. The air we breathe can also contain many potentially dangerous pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and radioactive particles from building materials or furniture made from certain woods. Even though we are breathing most of the time it is likely that we don’t even know many of these pollutants are there.
Duct and furnace cleaning services help to ensure that our air is clean and free from pollutants associated with heating and cooling systems.
