Can a carpet cleaning company, clean my air ducts with their vacuum?
"If a carpet cleaning company fails to follow proper duct cleaning procedures, their cleaning can actually cause more indoor air quality problems. Inadequate vacuum collection systems can release more dust, dirt and other contaminants into the indoor air than if they had left the ducts alone"
Reprinted from an EPA study released in October 1997.
I have one question for you... Would you hire an Air Duct Cleaning company to clean your carpets?
Be very skeptical of carpet cleaners that claim to be able to clean your air ducts with their extraction units, those units are simply not designed for anything other than carpets or other various forms of floor coverings.
Just as our duct cleaning equipment is not capable of cleaning your carpets, neither is carpet cleaning equipment capable of cleaning your air ducts.
We have recently noticed that many carpet cleaning businesses have begun offering Duct Cleaning as part of their services, We are left to wonder why anybody would even consider hiring a carpet cleaning specialist versus hiring a Duct Cleaning specialist to clean their air ducts.
Do you bring your Car into a Motorcycle shop when it needs repairs? of course not! - so why hire anybody other than a specialist to clean your Air Ducts?
Now, I'm sure I am going to get all kinds of nasty emails from all those carpet cleaners out there, telling me to mind my own business...Sorry Guys, I'm just trying to keep this industry honest!
So on a final note, If you insist on hiring a carpet cleaner to clean your air ducts because they had such a good "sale" on, why not hire us to clean your carpets...We'll give you a good deal too! ( just kidding )
