When it comes to being smart with HVAC, air duct cleaning is one of the best investments you can make. As time goes on, the walls of your AC or furnace system become covered in layers of dust and allergens. These not only lead to discomfort for people breathing the air but can also put an undue burden on your HVAC systems. This can lead to early system failure and a lot of headaches.
Fortunately - if you live in the Greater Blue Water area - you have a duct cleaning expert in your backyard. Read on for more information about the services we provide and the benefits of taking a brush to your ventilation.
Indoor air quality is a big problem in the 21st century both here and abroad. As homes become better sealed against the elements, the importance of having clean air inside your home increases. Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful to you and your family. Each time the HVAC system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and bacteria throughout the air inside your home. Below are a few statistics that help drive home the IAQ crisis that people in Port Huron and other parts of the world face:
We clean your air ducts with equipment that scrubs the built up dirt, dust, and debris with a rotary brush attached to the end of a powerful vacuum which immediately sucks it all up. To get to your air ducts, the tech removes each register to allow him to insert the brush/vacuum hose. After each branch is cleaned, the registers are reattached. Getting access to your main air duct trunk lines can involve removing an end cap or making an 'access opening' which is repaired and sealed after the cleaning is done.

How Long Will It Take For VHP to Clean My Ducts? It typically takes between three and five hours to clean ducts from start to finish. This number is about the average we see for a home with around 15 registers. Depending on the number of technicians present and the state of your HVAC systems, this time can vary widely. If time is of concern, let our technician know when he or she arrives.
Is There Anything I Should Avoid When Picking a Duct Cleaning Company? Yes - follow your instincts. If a price seems 'too good to be true' it probably is. Duct cleaning is hard, time-consuming work, and as with anything in life, you get what you pay for. This kind of price is either a 'come-on' that gets them in the door and they will 'up-sell' you with needed add-ons, or the job won't be done very well - many times leaving you worse off than before. It's always better to deal with a company that you know and that will stand by their work. With Vincent's Heating & Plumbing's Satisfaction Guarantee, we're not happy until you are, and if you aren't satisfied, we'll re-do the work to make certain that you are!
This is a hidden room that no matter how neat and clean you keep the rest of your house, this room never gets vacuumed. And it’s scary to think that the air from every breath you take passes through this hidden room.
