In order to ensure safety and expedite cleaning, we've included a checklist you can complete prior to your appointment:
Here are some easy things you can do to help keep your HVAC system at peak performance:
1. Replace your furnace filters often with a high-efficiency
2. Keep registers over duct openings to prevent larger
debris from falling into the ductwork. Clean Air Service, Inc. can also provide
filters to registers that are positioned flat to the ground. Ask a Clean Air
Service technician or call us for more information about register filters.
3. If you are remodeling, it might be a good idea to seal
off your register openings with tape or cardboard to decrease the risk of
debris falling into the exposed ductwork.
4. If your registers or diffusers are showing signs of dust
buildup, remove them and clean periodically. (If you are not sure how to do
this, ask one of our technicians or call us today for assistance.)
5. Inspect your duct work yearly to determine if a comprehensive
cleaning is necessary. (We can show you how to do this upon request.)
6. It is always a good idea to periodically check your dryer
vent(s) for buildup as well and remember to have them cleaned periodically by
the professionals at Clean Air Service, Inc. (Be sure to ask us about setting
up a periodic maintenance schedule.)
The US EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) has a comprehensive review on asbestos and it can be found here: http://www.epa.gov/asbestos/
For your safety, as well as ours, we are not able to clean ductwork wrapped in asbestos until it has been removed.
Please remove it before scheduling your appointment with us to avoid the inconvenience of your appointment being canceled or rescheduled.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!
Below are some examples of what asbestos tape or wrapping looks like on duct work:
