There are many reasons why leaning how duct cleaning is done is important and one of them is because you can save some money if you choose to do the job by yourself. Secondly, knowing how the job is done can also help you know what you should expect from a service company if you choose to hire one. In this article, I will be talking about the expectations you should have about a professional Utah Air Duct Cleaning company that you hire to clean your ducts for you.

You should expect the company to do a thorough inspection

Any company that is serious about what they do will start by first inspecting the duct system thoroughly to ensure that it doesn’t have any asbestos or asbestos-containing material in it. Some of the materials that commonly contain asbestos include register boots and insulation. The reason for doing the inspection is so as to decide on the best and safest method of going about the cleaning process. If the duct system contains asbestos-containing material, it will require the use of specialized process and procedures. If asbestos remains undisturbed, it doesn’t pose any threat to the occupants of a house. However, if the asbestos is disturbed, say by the pressurized air during cleaning, so that the pores take off to the air, they can easily be inhaled by people and animals and cause a myriad of health problems.

Therefore, an inspection helps to prevent the health threats that asbestos and other materials pose to people. If the company you hired specializes in asbestos removal, they can proceed with the removal process, but if they do not specialize in asbestos removal, then you may need to hire a specialist.

Expect some dismantling

That is right. If you want your duct system to be cleaned thoroughly and completely, you should expect some dismantling to be done to it first before it can be put back together after cleaning. The cleaning crew will be armed with screwdrivers and other tools that can help them to unscrew the entire system apart so that they can get easy access while cleaning. They will need to open the vents so that they can visually inspect its interiors before cleaning it. Inspection is an important process like we have seen above.

Demand that your house and its contents are protected from dust and damage

The duct cleaning crew offers an essential service, but that doesn’t give them the right to cause damage to your house and its content. They should find a way to cover your furniture and other items in the rooms they are working so that they are not destroyed by dust from the ducts.
