If you are thinking about having your air ducts cleaned and live in Columbus, Ohio, I encourage you to follow these five recommendations for clean, healthy indoor air

Recommendation #1: Make a commitment to yourself to get your air ducts cleaned. The longer you wait, the longer you expose yourself and your family or employees to possible contaminants. Further, the sooner you get the air ducts cleaned, the sooner you will have the confidence that your air quality is good and that your system is running efficiently.

Recommendation # 2: Decide whether you want to work with an honest, reputable company–or are you willing to risk working with the company that offers the lowest price, knowing that it may be your health at risk and that the company may not be in business tomorrow.

Recommendation # 3: Ask the right questions of a duct cleaner before you hire them.
Interview potential air duct cleaners by asking the following eight questions:

1) How do I know when my air ducts need cleaning?
2) How often should I get my air ducts cleaned?
3) How long have you been in business?
4) Are you properly insured?
5) What type of equipment do you use?
6) Is your equipment HEPA equipped?
7) What training have you had in air duct cleaning?
8) Will a trained technician be on site at all times?
9) What is your Guaranty?

Recommendation # 4: Once you are satisfied that you are working with an honest, competent professional, invite him into your home or office and ask for a specific quotation in writing. A written quotation gives you the assurance that you know exactly what your job will cost–no surprises.

Recommendation # 5: Use high efficiency air filters. I highly recommend using electrostatic air filters. They remove pollen, dust, and airborne pollutants with a peak air resistance of 94%. You will never need another filter, and they are quick and easy to clean. This one recommendation alone will help you obtain clean, healthy indoor air.

By following these five recommendations, you’ll gain all the information you need to make an informed, intelligent decision as it pertains to clean air for your home and how to hire a professional air duct cleaner.
