Understanding the Source Removal Process for Air Duct Cleaning

Getting your home’s air ducts cleaned may seem like an overwhelming maintenance task, but it’s probably quicker and easier than you think. Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning will come in and completely clean your air ducts in about two to three hours, leaving your home just as we found it. You might wonder what that process looks like and whether it’s worth the trouble. We will walk you through our source removal cleaning process, and hopefully, answer your questions along the way.

Our Source Removal Process

Source removal simply means that during our duct cleaning services, we physically remove the contaminants from the air ducts, while other companies may choose an ineffective process of spraying or “gluing” dust, dirt, and other contaminants to the surface of the air ducts. We use a specialized, powerful vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter that puts your heating and cooling system under negative pressure. Our techs will insert cleaning tools into the ducts to dislodge debris while the vacuum draws air through the system. The debris then travels through the ducts to the vacuum, which removes it from the system and from your home.

Complimentary Sanitization Services

At your request, Lowe’s Air Duck Cleaning can provide complimentary sanitization of the ducts using the EPA-registered EnviroCON product by Safety King, Inc. Known for its low toxicity level and high safety rating, it is highly effective in eliminating odor-causing microorganisms as well as those associated with mold, mildew, and bacterial growth. Many companies charge for this, but at Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning, it is always free when you request it.

Why Air Duct Cleaning May Be Necessary

Your air ducts might be harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for someone with a respiratory health condition, autoimmune disorder, or even some environmental allergies. The problem could be exacerbated even further by the presence of furry pets or a recent home remodeling project. If you or a member of your household is prone to asthma or allergies or you have experienced any water contamination or damage to your home or HVAC system, you should consider a professional air duct cleaning.
