If you are cleaning HVAC air ducts for compensation as a business, you need a license to operate in the state of Florida. As a homeowner, if you want to attempt to clean your own ducts a license is not required. To have the air ducts cleaned properly you may consider hiring a licensed air duct cleaning company.
Hiring a licensed air duct cleaning company is a no brainer. We recommend researching a couple companies in your area and their process in which they clean air ducts. There are a number of benefits that come along with choosing a professional air duct cleaning company:
Using the proper equipment can make all the difference when it comes to cleaning your ducts. A vacuum simply will not do the job, no matter how frequently you have cleaned your ducts. Not only does air duct cleaning require much more powerful negative air, you will want a negative air machine with HEPA filters to prevent the dust and debris that are sucked out of your vents to be redistributed back into your home.
How do you know, when you clean your own ducts, that you have actually thoroughly cleaned them? You might be able to clean what you see from your registers, but how do you know there is not a buildup dirt deeper in your ducts. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association holds the highest standards for air duct cleaning companies. In order to become a member of NADCA a member of the organization must first have the proper licensing in their state. Once the licensing has been verified the company must have a representative pass the Air Systems Cleaning Specialist certification test. This is a test that is proctored similar to the tests that are required to gain licensure in the state of Florida.
Just like you wouldn’t ask the dentist to maintain your pool, you shouldn’t ask a handyman to clean your air ducts. Duct cleaning is no different. If you have ducts that need to be cleaned, hiring a licensed air duct cleaning contractor that has years of experience is the best way to ensure that your ducts are cleaned properly. They will know the techniques and have the equipment required to actually provide you with clean ducts that stay clean longer.
