About Metro-Portland Duct Cleaning

Portland's rainy climate means that indoor air quality is a hot topic. The mold and mildew that flourish in humidity can easily find their way inside your home, and mold in your duct system can cause health issues.

Aside from fungal growth, duct systems can trap other contaminants that can affect your health, such as dust, insects, and debris. It's a great idea to have your HVAC and duct system cleaned every seven to ten years.

If you notice any of the following signs of less-than-ideal indoor air quality, contact a duct cleaning company to inspect your system:

  • Visible mold inside your ducts or other parts of the HVAC system
  • Pests inside your ducts
  • Supply registers releasing dust or debris

If you suspect that mold is present in your ductwork, the contractor will test the substance to confirm it is in fact mold. Once mold is confirmed, your ducts will need to be cleaned along with all other components of your HVAC system. If the mold is extensive enough, sections of the ductwork may need to be replaced. Whatever caused the mold growth must also be corrected or removed immediately.

When you contact a duct cleaning contractor, make sure they will clean all of the components of the HVAC system (and that they're qualified to complete this type of work). Failure to clean all of the components of your HVAC system will cause all of the contaminants to be reintroduced into the duct system.

The parts of your HVAC system that should be cleaned along with the ducts are:

  • Supply and return air ducts and registers
  • Heat exchanger and cooling coils
  • Drip pan
  • Fan motor housing
  • Air handling unit housing

A thorough cleaning of the entire system will remove bacteria, dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, lint, and other debris. This can help alleviate the symptoms of asthma and allergies and improve indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency.
