HVAC systems have shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants, such as mold, fungi, bacteria and dust, which have the potential to affect our health. The removal of these contaminants should be part of an overall plan to improve indoor air quality. Nothing can improve or degrade your health and the quality of your air more than the condition of your HVAC system. Even if you change the filter regularly, dust, pollen, insects and other debris will eventually collect in the system.
Historically, calling one of the many local "duct cleaners" was the answer, and in two hours or less, the ducts were swept out. The ducts, however, are only the most visible part of the system that includes coils, a condensate pump, drain pan, drain line and blower motor assembly. ServiceMaster by Lovejoy does a thorough cleaning of the entire system. When our technicians have completed the cleaning of your ducts, they are only half way complete. They will then open the coil cabinet, and clean the coils and drain pan. The blower compartment will be opened (if accessible) and cleaned out; including the "squirrel cage", that actually moves the air. Each vent cover is removed and cleaned before being replaced, and the vent opening is vacuumed out. We will also install a customer supplied filter with a recommend a MERV 10-12 airflow rating to notify you when your filter needs to be changed.
