Your house’s heating and air con systems circulate the air through a series of ducts in your house’s crawl spaces. In many systems the filters are created to trap any dirt before it enters this ductwork but overtime they become dirty. It is quite likely for you to clean the ducts and their covers and replace the filters themselves without hiring a professional cleaning service. All you wish is time and a few common household tools.
The first step is to find out when the air ducts need cleaning. Consider the grills if they look like covered with dirt or lint then they most certainly might want to be cleaned. In the event the grill’s exterior appears clean you need to still set aside the grill to inspect the wall around the area exactly where the duct contacts with the building material. Whether it is dirty then you will want to clean them even if the grills appear clean.
To make this happen task you will want:
• Replacement filters
• Soft brushes
• Vacuum cleaner with a brush head for your hose attachment
It is very important to dont forget shut down the air con or heating units in advance of your cleaning job and inspecting the filters. You’ll have to take the sieves out to take a look at them and also if dirty replace them. When buying filters there will be information in regard to whenever the manufacture suggests the intervals the fact that the filter must be changed. Usually this must be carried out approximately every six months.
The next task is to eliminate all of the return and air duct covers, being very careful not to lower the screws straight into the air ducts. The covers have to be cleaned because if they are dirty the ducts will not stay clean. Thoroughly brush all the grill surfaces in the soft brush and then wipe them first with a humid rag and then a dry one. You possibly can clean the ducts themselves by vacuuming the areas that can be reached by the comb attachment and hose. Watch out you don’t puncture them if they are soft sided. Soon after you are done vacuuming gently brush them and wipe when using the dry rag. Just be sure you don’t trap any moisture in the system. To make sure you have all the dust out vacuum them again.
Replace all of the return and duct vent grills so if you cleaned any inside just remember to vacuum the area around where you cleaned. While the power is off it is best to move the coil and fan covers and clean the cooling coils no matter what the aircon and heater fan blades in the vacuum brush attachment. If you do not feel safe cleaning them hire a professional to scrub the blades and coils.
