Air Duct Cleaning
Air Duct Cleaning done by 2nd Chance Water Restoration is done right due to many reasons!
We use HEPA negative air and the viper whip system, so nearly all debris is gone quickly. Dust and debris build up over time in air systems. The build up of this dust and debris in your air ducts can lead to a host of problems in your home.
Excess dust and debris cause extra wear and tear to your air system, so you’ll need repairs to your HVAC system. Keeping your air ducts fairly clean can save you a lot of money on your maintaining your air system.
A build up of dust and debris in your air ducts also affect your indoor air quality. When you have dust in an air system you can create an unwanted ecosystem in your air supply. Mold and bacteria give a food source to dust mites and other insects. These dust mite and other smaller insects bring bigger insects. The circle of life continues to grow in dirty air duct systems like the one in the picture below.
Clean Air To Breathe Is Sweet!
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the average six-room house collects 40 pounds of dirt, dust and allergens in its air ducts each year. That’s a big problem, considering that 40,000 dust mites can thrive in only one ounce of dust.
Those little dust “bunnies” contain a host of unhealthy bacteria, fungi and mold. The EPA estimates indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Even worse, the contaminated air circulates throughout your house every time the heating or cooling system kicks on. Blowing dirt and debris all over all your stuff, your home and in your indoor air.
Improved Energy Efficiency And Indoor Air Quality
When you have a dirty air system it will do more than harm you and your home but also your pocketbook. By having a dirty air system you are asking your furnace and air conditioner to work much harder than is necessary. Extra effort requires more gas and energy which means your utilities cost more. Problems compound the longer you allow dust and debris to build up in your air system.
The more dirt and debris that there is in your system then the more there is on all your stuff.

How Does 2nd Chance Water Restoration Do Air Duct Cleaning?
2nd Chance Water Restoration uses state of the art equipment and years of experience in cleaning air systems. We use HEPA filtered vacuum systems in conjunction with a viper air whip system. 2nd Chance then proceeds to go through every register and return with both negative and forced air which ensures quality work every time.
Air Duct Cleaning And Apply Anti-Microbial
We can do air duct cleaning and apply anti-microbial for those that want disinfectant. The anti-microbial we use is completely safe for your air system. We use Microban products in conjunction with an Ultra Low Volume fogger to properly apply a anti-microbial spray into your air system.
The anti-microbial spray will kill mold, mildew and fungus. It will also kill insects and deter rodents and other animals from going into the air system. The anti-microbial spray is also great for odor removal and making the home smell good.
Clean Every Vent & Return
We go through every opening and clean every vent & return correctly. Placing the air system under negative air pressure and brushing the dust is how clean.
Our techs will provide before, during and after pictures of your specific air system during the course of the project. 2nd Chance loves having the opportunity to educate and inform a customer whenever they occur and encourages customers to witness as much of the cleaning process as possible.
Dust removal is a big thing, when getting your air duct cleaning done. All dust is primarily caused by dead skin, so letting it build up is not good. Dust removal is also important to eliminate potential food sources for pests.
When the dust passes through your HVAC system it can get cooked and turn into carbon. That can cause carbon filtration to your carpets.
Black lines around the edges of your carpeting is from having a dirty air system. When you find that you are constantly dusting and it seems like it never stops then you also might want to have your air ducts cleaned.
If you notice moisture in your air system then that needs to be rectified right away. Drain lines and filters need to be maintained. Moisture in your unit or drain pans will lead to mold growth and could potentially affect the whole system. The home owner is the first line of defense and it is up to you to maintain your HVAC system.
Whenever you have a mold project you should first have the air system cleaned, sanitized and closed off from the affected area. That is how 2nd Chance Water Restoration got into air duct cleaning in the first place. We have been certified for years in mold remediation and thus cleaning air systems for mold removal projects. It seemed like a natural fit to at this point offer our excellent duct cleaning service to all that have need for that. If you have a dirty air system then we’ll give it a 2nd Chance at cleanliness.
