The Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

The frequency of cleaning depends on preference of the home owner. However, you shouldn’t be the one who does the job. You need to call a professional duct cleaning company with the right equipment to handle it. The Duct Cleaning professionals at Black Hills, Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning has the necessary skills to give you a superior cleaning.

Reasons to have professional duct cleaning


Ducts clogged with dust, dust mites, dirt, pollen, dander, and even mold will lower a home’s air quality and contribute to numerous health problems, especially for people with allergies. Keeping ducts clean is an important part of maintaining higher indoor air quality.

Greater HVAC system efficiency: Even a thin layer of dust along the interior of ductwork creates friction against the airflow from a heater or an air conditioner. This puts strain on the system, and it requires more energy to run. You will soon see a difference on your energy bills—and not a pleasant difference. Regular duct cleaning will make sure your heater and air conditioner run at their best, and without increased danger of debris clogging up the interior of the cabinets and causing repair needs.

A cleaner home: Consider this: a six-room home can circulate 40 lbs. of dust through it in only a year. A large amount of that will rest inside the ventilation shafts. If you have this contamination cleaned out from the ductwork, you’ll have a huge portion of the dust in your house removed at once, resulting in a cleaner home with fewer dust bunnies and dusty surfaces.

Professional duct cleaning uses powerful vacuums that change the pressure inside the ventilation system to make it easier to remove the various particles. Special brushes mounted on long flexible lines assist with agitating pollutants from the walls of ducts so the vacuums can suction them up easier.

"My husband, Terry, and I would like to personally thank you for the excellent service we received from our first phone call to Black Hills, reminder calls, services, and follow-up! Your staff was very professional and informative. Following with a hand-written thank you for joining the Black Hills family was brilliant and so appreciated. Sadly, so many companies have lost this personal touch. From a marketing background, treating customers as if they are your first customers is time consuming, and often tiring, but it is what develops loyalty. Thank you and your team"
