Fort Lauderdale Duct Cleaning Technician Reveals Secrets Duct Cleaners Don’t Want People to Know

Is regular duct cleaning service really a matter of life and death?
April 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Fort Lauderdale, FL – Duct cleaning contractors that advertise their services often use scare tactics to convince residents to hire them.  They say things like “What’s hiding in your ducts?”  or “Do you know what your children are breathing?”

According to Fort Lauderdale duct cleaning experts with DUCTZ, this type of advertising seems to imply that the duct work is infested with insects or contains harmful contaminates which certainly is not always the case.

Discount air duct cleaning services who charge $60 to $100 and take only an hour or two to clean air ducts may also be doing more harm than good.  A reputable duct cleaning service will charge between $450 and $1,000 and the job will take four to eight hours to complete.

Dave Pisan is a technician with DUCTZ indoor air specialists and Fort Lauderdale duct cleaning service.  When asked if annual duct cleaning service is necessary for homeowners, Pizan answered, “The frequency of cleaning depends upon a number of variables.  However the NADCA ACR 2006 does recommend that at a minimum, residential homes have a qualified HVAC specialist inspect their air handling unit every year and the ductwork every 2 years.

When asked why people have duct cleaning performed, Pizan answered: “There are a number of reasons why homeowners might have a need for duct cleaning services.”  For instance, the EPA suggests that you should consider having your ductwork cleaned if the ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.  However, in addition to the benefits of improved indoor air quality, many people decide to have their system cleaned because of the potential cost savings which result from restoring the system and making it more energy efficient.

Sadly, another reason a homeowner has this service performed is because a slick, fast-talking sales person came to the door and pressured them into having an inspection done.  Of course, the inspection turned up “dangerous microbial matter” that must be attended to right away!

According to the EPA, having duct cleaning performed by an unlicensed and uncertified contractor can cause more harm than good.  Duct cleaning must be done using specialized equipment involving HEPA filtration.  When a contractor uses inadequate collection systems, vacuums and short-cut cleaning procedures, extremely high levels of contaminants can be released into the occupied space.  Therefore, the discounted price of $60 to $100 is money wasted if the work is not being done properly.  

Fort Lauderdale duct cleaning technicians encourage consumers to have a “no pressure,” free photographic inspection to learn the condition of their duct work.  Duct cleaning service can improve indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency.  Visit to learn more.
