Duct Cleaning: How to prevent contamination?

One of the most common questions in regards to our HVAC system is, how do I prevent contamination? Here are some tips below:

  1. Change filters regularly:
    Each filter has a life cycle/rating. Be sure to follow it.
  2. Use the right filter:
    Use the highest efficiency air filter recommended by the manufacturer of your HVAC system.
  3. Install it right:
    Ensure that you install all the filters and that there are no gaps in the filter holder. If you have any questions ask your duct cleaning
  4. Seal it off:
    When doing renovation is sure to close all your vents. This will reduce the need to have duct cleaning after every time you want to renovate your home.
  5. Regular maintenance:
    Be sure to dust and vacuum regularly. If you have pets, be sure to vacuum even more frequently.
  6. Regular duct cleaning:
    Duct cleaning should be done every 3 years. Every time your duct cleaning specialist comes to your home be sure to ask for more maintenance tips.
  7. Employ a humidifier:
    Use a humidifier to avoid moisture. Moisture can turn into mould which should be avoided. Moisture also increases the contamination of mould onto the other vents. By using a good humidifier you reduce the risk of contamination.
