It would be easy to determine whether or not a maid did a good job cleaning your home. If there were stains on the carpet and residue on the countertops, the maid did not do well. It is harder to determine whether or not an HVAC technician did a good job cleaning the air ducts, since air ducts are not as visually accessible. The last thing you want is to feel like your air duct cleaning was not successful. Here are some fool-proof ways to make sure your HVAC technician did a great job.
Perform Visual Inspection
This is both the easiest and best way to determine whether or not the air duct cleaning was successful. Get a ladder and pop off a vent, stick a flash light and a camera up there and take a before picture. Your HVAC technician may have a more effective way of showing you what the air ducts look like. Ask for them to show you the before and after. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, though, the home-brew version of the process should do the trick. If the ducts are covered in dust and debris before and perfectly clean after, your HVAC technician likely did a good job. Check in a few different places to make sure that they cleaned the entirety of your air ducts.
Pay attention to how much dust accrues in your home before and after the cleaning. If you notice significantly less dust after the cleaning, you should consider it to be successful. HVAC system cleanings should seriously decrease the amount of dust in your home. If the dust-level in your house seems the same before and after the cleaning, it might be time to write a bad review or call your air duct cleaner to get the job done right.
If your allergy symptoms improve after the HVAC cleaning, the HVAC cleaner has done their job properly. Fewer allergens in the air mean fewer allergy symptoms. Cleaning the air ducts in your home will reduce the allergens in the air and thereby improve your allergy symptoms.
Clean, clear air ducts mean that your HVAC system will not have to work as hard to regulate the temperatures in your home. Your A/C or heater will not run as long and your home will stay a comfortable temperature without as much effort. If your HVAC system is running less after the cleaning, great! Having clean air ducts should make your system work more efficiently.
