Professional Air Duct Cleaning

Bradley Mechanical has provided air duct cleaning services for over five decades. Our top priority is ensuring the air you breathe is clean and safe. We offer commercial and residential duct cleaning to help remove obstructions, debris, dirt and potential contaminants like mold from your ductwork.

Thorough & Quality Air Duct Cleaning Services

We perform not only a thorough duct cleaning, but we will also address all other areas of your duct system. This involves the air handler, registers, fans, motors, grills, coils and even the housing of your HVAC unit. Our air duct cleaning services include cleaning your supply lines and intake and return ducts throughout your home or business.

During our cleaning process, we use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean the dirt and obstructions that exist in your ductwork. We then use a specialized blower to push the debris out and vacuum to remove the dirt, dust, and other obstructions from your ducts.

For duct systems that have been contaminated by microbial growth (mold), this will require another form of duct cleaning. In these cases, we use a chemical fog that eradicates any living mold spores growing in your ventilation ducts. This process will ensure your ducts are not only clean but the air you breathe as a result is safe.

Top 5 Benefits of AC Duct Cleaning

Over time, dust and debris naturally find their way into your HVAC system. Air filters are meant to stop the majority of particles from entering your ductwork, but they can’t keep everything out. This is why scheduling routine maintenance and cleaning services is so important. Our customers enjoy a range of benefits after this service, including:

  • Better indoor air quality. Clean air ducts mean clean air. It’s as simple as that. Regularly cleaning and removing debris from your ductwork makes the air you breathe every day better for you. It also reduces the chances of you or your family members experiencing potential health hazards and long-term respiratory problems.
  • Fewer allergens. Common allergens like pet hair, dander, dust, and mold can circulate through your ductwork. For those who suffer from indoor allergies or even asthma, air duct cleaning can significantly improve their quality of life.
  • Odor removal. Certain odors, like cigarette smoke, can be challenging to remove. This is often because the smoke and odors find their way into your ductwork and impact the air you breathe in every day. Our AC duct cleaning will remove these unpleasant odors once and for all.
  • Energy efficiency. If something is blocking your ductwork or impacting the flow of air, it will cost you. As your HVAC unit works harder and longer, it results in higher energy bills. Regular duct cleaning ensures there are no objects or obstacles keeping your system from running effectively and efficiently.
  • Enhancing the life of your system. Like all appliances, machinery benefits from regular maintenance and cleanings. Your air ducts greatly contribute to the comfort and health of your home. Investing in them is not only great for your health but also for your wallet and future investments.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does air duct cleaning work?

Bradley Mechanical’s air duct cleaning experts will thoroughly inspect your ducts to search for any leaks or kinks that may impact your cleaning. Then they will use blowers and vacuums to create negative pressure, agitate the dust and debris and ultimately remove it from the ducts. The final cleaning of other components of the HVAC system will finish off the process.

Why should I have my air ducts cleaned?

The state of your air ducts will determine the condition and quality of the air you breathe every day. Dusty ducts equal dusty air. More significant problems like moisture buildup and mold within your ducts can also cause harmful health conditions.

How often do air ducts need to be cleaned?

Based on EPA guidelines, we recommend having your air ducts cleaned as needed. If you suspect a mold problem, your air ducts should be cleaned right away. However, dust or debris within your air ducts is not a problem that can be solved simply through cleaning. If you’re unsure of the last time your air duct system was cleaned, or worry there may be an issue, give us a call and we’ll do a thorough inspection before undergoing a deep clean.

Will duct cleaning reduce my energy bills?

Clean air ducts mean your HVAC system can run as intended. This often results in lower energy bills as your system does not need to work harder or overtime to deliver clean, conditioned air and heat.
