Air Duct Cleaning Versus Air Duct Scrubbing

Atlantic Bay Contracting has helped many customers in our 25 years, and one of the biggest improvements we have helped make was to their air quality. Though your house might be new or cleaned top to bottom, there is a lot to be said about proper air duct scrubbing and the impact it has on your air quality indoors. Yes- we said scrubbing and not just cleaning.

Standard, professional air duct cleaning often involves special blowers and vacuums that clean the supply, intake, and return ducts in your home. Though this can be helpful to rid some of the dust and other dander that exists, the only way to ensure a proper cleaning is through scrubbing that will not impact the integrity of your ducting.

This process involves a brush and vacuum method that physically scrubs the inside of your ducts. We first start by cleaning the register covers to remove cooking oil and nicotine film, and other dust-collecting substances. Then, we deep clean the source of your air supply (blower, squirrel cage, coils condensation pain, and return air supply). Lastly, we use the Rotobrush AiR ® system before sanitizing your ducts and vents with environmentally-friendly sanitizer that leave behind a fresh scent.

Air duct scrubbing is often suggested if you have recently renovated, if you have animals in your home, if there is visible mold growth, there is noticeable contaminants coming out of your duct work, or if someone in your family has recently suffered from unexplained allergy illnesses. Atlantic Bay suggests making your duct cleaning and scrubbing apart of your maintenance routine, as every home is different and your indoor and outdoor conditions might lend itself to more or less frequent cleaning.

Give us a call at Atlantic Bay Contracting. We would love to explain to you all of the benefits duct scrubbing will offer your home and air quality. You’ll feel the difference- we promise.
