• Are there any health benefits that come from HVAC system cleaning?

    Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.

  • How can we determine if the HVAC system cleaning was effective?

    The best way to determine if the HVAC system cleaning was effective is to perform a visual inspection of the system before and after cleaning. If any dust or debris can be seen during the visual inspection, the system should not be considered cleaned. Doodlebuggers can email you before and after pictures of your air duct cleaning project, upon request, to help ensure a top quality job.

  • How long should it take to clean a typical residential HVAC system?

    The amount of time it takes to clean a residential HVAC system depends on many variables such as the size of the home, the number of systems, the extent of the contamination and the number of HVAC cleaners performing the job. Doodlebuggers works in teams of 2 on residential duct cleaning projects with at least 1 of those technicians being a NADCA certified ASCS. Almost all jobs take at least 1/2 a day to properly complete. Some jobs may take 3/4 to 1 full day and large jobs may take 2 or more days.

  • How often should residential HVAC systems be cleaned?

    Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:

    • Smokers in the household.
    • Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander.
    • Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system.
    • Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home’s HVAC system.
    • After home renovations or remodeling.
    • Prior to occupancy of a new home.
