Your ductwork is responsible for taking the hot or cold air and circulating it throughout your home. Oftentimes, many individuals never think twice about their ductwork. They just think of it as being there. However, you need to take the time to have your ductwork cleaned on a regular basis to get rid of all the contaminants lurking beneath of the surface. To help you better prepare for your upcoming appointment, here are three questions to ask the duct cleaning professionals.
How long does the process take?
If you are like many people today, you probably lead a busy life. Because of this, you need to know how long it is going to take them to come in and get the job done for you. This will help you better plan your schedule and make sure someone is there to show them where the ducts are in the event you have to leave. Duct cleaning can be a time-consuming process, especially when you have a larger house with a lot of ducts to clean.
Do you charge a flat-rate or is it by the duct?
While some companies charge a flat-rate based on the size of your home and number of bedrooms, others charge per duct. If the company you are going to use does charge by the duct, you will need to go around and count them all to give them an idea of what it is that they are dealing with. The company will often need to know this ahead of time to make sure they schedule enough time to do the job thoroughly.
How do you decontaminate the ducts?
If you dealt with rodents in your ducts, you are probably wanting to know how they are going to get rid of the mice droppings and decontaminate them to prevent spreading the mice droppings throughout your home. They can explain the process to you to make sure you feel comfortable with how they do things.
When it comes to decontamination, they have a special formula that they use to spray through your ducts and eliminate any allergens or contaminants that were in there. You simply crank your thermostat up and let your system run at full speed for a few minutes to let the solution do its job and you are good to go.
By asking the above questions, you can make sure you are comfortable with the way the company is going to do the job. To learn more, contact a company like J&J Air.Share

Hi there, my name is Shelley. Welcome to my site about electric heating systems. Electric heat has recently fallen out of favor due to the efficiency of natural gas systems. Electric heat is still suitable for small buildings that do not need the high temps provided by upgraded systems. I will use this site to explore all of the building types that can benefit from electric heating systems. I will also share information about system components, installations and repairs. I welcome you to come by often to learn more about this exciting topic. Thanks for coming by. See you soon.
