Air Duct Cleaning In Colorado Springs
How can the air duct cleaning of your home help? Every day a multitude of harmful air irritants can collect within your air ducts like dust, pollen, pet dander, and mildew. All these things typically collect in the air ducts, which significantly reduces the quality of the air in your Colorado Springs home. It is recommended to have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years to help reduce the contaminants and keep your HVAC system running effectively.
The Residential Air Duct Cleaning Process
- Vacuum Attachment – We attach our high powered vacuum debris collection system to the HVAC system to put a negative air pressure on the duct system. For the vacuum, we need an access point (a hole) for the supply line and return trunk line. If your home has had it’s air ducts cleaned before, then we can access that previous hole, but many times we will have to cut a new hole in the duct for vacuum access. In the end, the holes will be plugged and sealed for an air tight system. This is not unusual. For proper duct cleaning, this is required.
- Agitate / Remove The Debris – To remove all the built-up debris in the duct system, we use the compressed air line with either whips or forward air ball. There are two main processes of debris removal typically used by the top professionals in the air duct cleaning industry. The first method is using a highly accepted industry standard by using an air whip, which is more effective in the vent returns and the main trunk lines for the HVAC system. The forward air ball is used in the supply vents. With the high air pressure, it pushes all the debris into the trunk lines. Then the whips clear the trunk lines, to the vacuum point. Mountain Air Duct uses both of these debris removal processes! We push the contaminants toward the furnace where the HEPA Vacuum is collecting all the debris. The 5000 – 7000 CFM vacuum is the best in the industry by pulling all the debris out without anything getting back into your home.
- Seal Up Once we have cleaned out all the vents and trunk lines all the way to bottom of the furnace, we vacuum the coils and blower. Finally, we seal off the vacuum access holes.
FREQUENCY – RESIDENTIAL CLEANING
We highly recommend having your home air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years, especially in Colorado Springs with all the wind and dust. If any work has been done in your house like drywall work, flooring, or interior sawing, then that is a perfect time to get your air ducts cleaned also.
If you are selling or purchasing a home, it is also recommended to get the ducts cleaned. This ensures that any built-up contaminants are removed and the house is fresh and distributing clean air.
For those of you that have issues with seasonal allergies or pets should get them cleaned on a regular basis.

Air duct cleaning companies come in two types. One that offers duct cleaning services as an add-on to their business, like a carpet cleaner or HVAC company. The other is a true Air Duct Cleaning Service, which has the proper equipment and will thoroughly clean your ventilation system. When companies advertise that they can do a complete house air duct cleaning for under $250, you should run away fast. They will either try to upsell you or only do a light vacuum of the main ducts. They do not have the best or proper equipment to do the job right.
