When it comes to being smart with HVAC, air duct cleaning is one of the best investments you can make. As time goes on, the walls of your AC or furnace system become covered in layers of dust and allergens. These not only lead to discomfort for people breathing the air but can also put an undue burden on your HVAC systems.
Fortunately, if you live in Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, Washington DC and surrounding Metro Areas, you have a duct cleaning expert in your backyard. Read on for more information about the services we provide and the benefits of taking a brush to your ventilation.
Indoor air quality is a big problem in the 21st century, both here and abroad. As homes become better sealed against the elements, the importance of having clean air inside your home increases. Without even knowing it, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful to you and your family.
Each time the HVAC system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and bacteria throughout the air inside your home. Below are a few statistics that help drive home the IAQ crisis that people in Alexandria and other parts of the world face:
Before getting started, our technician will take a moment to introduce him or herself. They will then take a quick tour of your home. This will allow them to pinpoint the registers. Once that's done, he or she will get to work.
We scrub away the built-up dirt and debris with a rotary brush. An attached vacuum sucks up what is shed. To get to your air ducts, the tech removes each register to allow him or her to insert the vacuum hose. After cleaning each branch, the registers are reattached.
Getting access to your main air duct trunk lines can involve removing an end cap or making an 'access opening' which is repaired and sealed after the cleaning is done. If we find any issues with your ductwork, we will also make recommendations on repairing them.
Frosty's Heating and Cooling, Inc.'s team of duct cleaners has been serving the Alexandria area since 1989.

It typically takes between four and six hours to clean ducts from start to finish. This number is about the average we see for a home with around 15 registers. Depending on the number of technicians present and the state of your HVAC systems, this time can vary widely. If time is of concern, let our technician know when he or she arrives.
Follow your instincts. If a price seems 'too good to be true', it probably is. Duct cleaning is hard, time-consuming work and, as with anything in life, you get what you pay for. This kind of price is either a 'come-on' that gets them in the door where they will up-sell you or a sign that the job won't be done very well. It's always better to deal with a company that you know and that will stand by their work. With Frosty's Heating and Cooling, Inc.'s Satisfaction Guarantee, we're not happy until you are!
