Q: Why is air duct cleaning important?

A:

Pollutants such as dust, dirt, pet dander and other debris from around the house accumulate in your air ducts over time, leading to possible allergic responses. In more extreme cases, air vents congested from home renovation or years of neglect can exacerbate or contribute to the risk of home fires. Regular cleanings prevent this build-up and ensure your home’s air supply is clean and healthy.

Q: How are my ducts cleaned?

A:

Our NADCA-certified technicians use high-powered, truck-mounted vacuums to agitate and suck up the contaminants from your air ducts. The vacuum extracts dirt, dust and other particles without allowing them to escape into your living spaces. We then use rotary brushes to remove any stubborn particles that were not knocked free by the whipping process.

Q: Who is qualified to clean my home’s air ducts?

A:

NADCA-certified Modernistic technicians have been extensively trained on the latest and most effective procedures for cleaning your air ducts. The National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) certification demonstrates to our customers that we follow the proper duct cleaning procedures and are knowledgeable about and up-to-date with HVAC system cleaning standards.

Q: Will my furnace or air conditioner be damaged during the air duct cleaning process?

A:

No. A proper cleaning of your HVAC system leaves the entire system, including the furnace and air conditioner, in better condition than before. Our specialized tools are designed to prevent any damage to your home.

Q: If I recently moved into a newly-built home, do I need to have my air ducts cleaned?

A:

Even brand new homes are great candidates for Modernistic’s air duct cleaning services. During construction, duct work is sometimes left in the open and becomes a perfect place for dust and dirt to collect over time. The construction process generates a lot of dust from the materials used in home-building, such as drywall, particle board and insulation. Schedule your air duct cleaning appointment online and rest assured your new home will be completely clean and comfortable.

Q: Will clean ducts mean less dust throughout the home?

A:

Yes. Your HVAC system circulates the same air for a long time, meaning that if there is no dust in the system, there will be little to no dust throughout your house.

Q: Can duct cleaning help minimize my allergies?

A:

Yes. Pet dander and other common contaminants are known to trigger allergies, but a regular air duct cleaning helps reduce harmful allergens, thus minimizing the trouble and annoyance of allergic reactions.

Q: How much does Residential Air Duct Cleaning cost?

A:

When you schedule your home air duct cleaning appointment online, you can take advantage of Modernistic’s money-saving online coupons. With our online real-time quoting system you will get a free estimate and see your savings instantly when you schedule for your air duct cleaning service. There are no hidden fees at any point in the process, so for a great price you can enjoy all of the benefits that a complete air duct cleaning by Modernistic brings. Our professional air duct cleaning technicians have been providing excellent service for homeowners since 1973.

Q: Why should I clean my air ducts?

A:

Without having an air duct cleaning specialist service your home regularly, your ducts become the breeding ground for dirt, debris, mold, mildew and other harmful particles. If left unattended, these pollutants will multiply and pollute your home’s air supply, leading to an increased chance for allergies and disease. Regular air duct cleanings can help reduce those chances.

Q: Does having cleaner air ducts reduce allergy symptoms?

A:

If you have allergies or other respiratory problems you will definitely see the benefits of air duct cleaning services. Modernistic’s air duct cleaning service removes allergens such as pet hair and dander from your HVAC system so that these harmful elements cannot cause allergic reactions. Everyone can benefit from cleaner indoor air, especially children and the elderly. So if you have someone in your home who has chronic allergy or respiratory problems, schedule your air duct cleaning online today.

Q: Will having my air ducts cleaned reduce my energy bills?

A:

Yes! A clean HVAC system runs more efficiently, saving you money in the long run. Dust and other contaminants can clog up filters and vents, preventing the free flow of air throughout your house, but a Modernistic air duct cleaning will remove all of those particles, leaving your ducts clean and efficient.
