Sanitizing and Disinfecting Air Ducts

Sanitizing, Deodorizing, and Disinfecting Air Ducts

Over time, the ductwork in your home becomes dirty, which in turn has a negative impact on the indoor air quality for you and your family members. The quality of indoor air in your home can have a substantial effect on the health of you, your family, and even your pets. Contaminated air ducts are a breeding ground for a number of things that can be hazardous to your health, such as mold, mildew, and other unhealthy debris that settle into the ductwork over a period of time.

Before and After of Air Duct Cleaning services in NJ

At DRX Duct Cleaning, not only do we offer air duct cleaning services by NADCA certified professionals, but we also offer Sanitizing and Disinfecting Air Ducts, as well as Deodorizing too. After your duct work is thoroughly cleaned using our unique process of negative pressure source removal, the next step is to sanitize the ductwork. DRX Duct Cleaning only uses EPA approved products that are both safe and effective. This allows us to provide the most thorough clean possible, while keeping the safety of you and your loved ones a top priority.

The process of sanitizing your ductwork works in a very similar fashion to applying a hand sanitizer to your hands—only this type of sanitizer is formulated for ductwork. The goal of the sanitizer is to eliminate any basic bacteria that we cannot see once we have eliminated everything that we can see (dust, debris etc). DRX Duct Cleaning uses an alcohol based sanitizer by a company called Simple Green. This sanitizer will help to deodorize, and kill bacteria, giving you and your loved ones a fresh start following your NJ air duct cleaning. If you have had recent water damage, mold, or an unusually large amount of contaminants are found in the ductwork of your newly purchased home for example, you may want to upgrade to a chlorine based disinfectant instead of the basic sanitizer.

DRX Duct Cleaning applies our sanitizer using a fogging device and negative air pressure that’s sourced from our vacuum trucks. For more information about sanitizing, deodorizing, or disinfecting the ductwork in your home, contact DRX Duct Cleaning today at (908) 755-2950.

Can My Insulated Ductwork Be Cleaned?

Over the past several years, there has been an increase in the number of duct cleaning companies out there. It is very important that company you choose is NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association) certified. This will insure that you are receiving a thorough cleaning that is done both safely and properly with the right equipment, and to the highest standards.

Insulated ductwork Cleaning in NJThere are occasions where we come across ductwork that is internally insulated. While fiber board and duct board materials are designed to hold up to a cleaning, only an experienced duct cleaner should be trusted to carry this out. Because they are comprised of fiberglass, small particles become airborne during the cleaning process. Equipment with 12,000 to 16,000 CFM’s of power must be used to ensure the particles are removed.

Extra care must be taken to be sure that the insulation is not damaged during the cleaning. Proper equipment must be used to dislodge any debris adhered to the surface. Once dislodged, the debris also become airborne and must be removed using the proper vacuuming equipment. DRX has state of the art equipment and individually NADCA certified techs with ample experience in this type of duct cleaning.

It is also recommended to have insulated duct work sanitized, as it is known to harbor bacteria.
