Regular cleaning of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems brings health benefits to all occupants. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems build up mould, mildew, bacteria, and various pollutants that affect the quality of the air inhaled by residents and visitors.
Dirty air ducts contribute to poor indoor air quality and affect the health of people in the home. The purpose of residential air duct cleaning in Marshall is to remove these contaminants from the home HVAC system to maintain the best indoor air quality.

The most effective way to clean the air duct and/or ventilation system is to use a special high powered vacuum that creates negative pressure in the air duct/ventilation system. As the vacuum draws air through the system, a device is inserted into the duct to remove contaminants and debris from the internal surfaces, thereby transferring the contaminant/debris from the air duct and housing ventilation system into the vacuum.
Vacuum collection alone does not clean the HVAC system. Brushes, air whips, skipper balls, and other tools that stir up contaminants and dirt, clean the inner surfaces of the air duct system, and remove contaminants and debris into the vacuum collector.
An antimicrobial chemical disinfectant is applied to the inner surface of the air duct to control microbial contamination…but…before using a disinfectant, the system must be thoroughly cleaned. All antimicrobial chemicals used must be registered with the EPA for use in an HVAC system.
