Have you ever looked around your A/C vents in your home and seen dust sticking to the walls around them? If so, it’s probably time to have your HVAC air ducts cleaned by Air Supply LV. If dust is present around the vents you can be sure there is 10x that amount built-up in the duct system. Here in Vegas, we are no strangers to dust, it is everywhere! When you live in a desert it is a way of life. The average home should have their air ducts cleaned about every 5-10 years, granted that the air filters are changed regularly, your system is maintained annually, and you have no pets. Every home is different and requires different time lines for when their ducts should be cleaned. For instance, if you are in a home with multiple pets, or if you are in an older home where the windows aren’t properly sealed letting excess amounts of dust in, you should probably consider having them cleaned every 3 years or so.
Black Dust from Vents? What’s in Dirty Air Ducts?
Dirty air ducts are the number one source of indoor air pollution in our homes. Recent studies have shown that indoor air quality is up to 70% more polluted than outdoor air. We’re in an enclosed space, and we track in everything we come in contact with outside ultimately giving it no way to escape and instead of blowing away it stays trapped in our living areas. This includes but is not limited to various allergens, dust, mold, mildew, viruses, chemicals from cleaning solutions, pesticides, pet hair and dander, human skin and hair etc. Then every time we turn on our HVAC heating or cooling systems, these airborne contaminants are pulled into our ducts and essentially build up and become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, fungus, dust mites and other microbes. When there is heavy build-up, these toxins can cause various health ailments including aggravating asthma, allergies, headaches, coughing, sneezing, sinus congestion, respiratory infections and flu-like symptoms.

There are two key parts of this process, one is breaking the contaminants loose and the other is collecting and removing the contaminants without reintroducing them back into your home after you turn your system back on. The first part of this process starts with a licensed technician removing the source of contamination by loosening the debris that has collected on the sides of the duct system with special brushes. We will feed a snake like hose through the system so we can get in every nook and cranny. During this process the entire system will be put under negative pressure (like a vacuum) to minimize any further contamination in your home. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning can also install UV lights throughout your duct system to effectively kill and prevent any future mold or bacteria growth. It is recommended that you only trust a licensed, experienced and reputable company to perform this work on your duct system to ensure that the work gets done the right way the first time around.
