Keeping Commercial Air Ducts Clean Austin Texas

Every so often throughout the year, it’s important to check your air ducts in Austin, Texas. After all, the air you breathe throughout the day is critical to your health -- imagine if you’re breathing in dust, dirt, grime, and other particles? According to the EPA, we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors and, for many people, much of that time is spent in the office. Sometimes, the air inside can be more polluted than the air outside, especially when you don’t take time to check those ducts!

 

What Contamination Looks Like

 

The biggest part of looking for any signs of contamination is going to be knowing what you’re looking for. If you see excessive debris; such as dirt, dust, or any other grime, it’s likely time to give your air ducts a good clean. However, in some cases you may notice mold growth or mold spores beginning to spread around the base of the duct-- this could be from gathered moisture or even high humidity and can be exceptionally dangerous if left to continue growing.

Air Duct Cleaning: Effective and Efficient

Duct Cleaning 

Duct Cleaning 

With the change of seasons, comes the changing of allergens in the air. And, when allergens are stirred up and affecting you more than normal, it’s easy to want to coop up inside and “rest.” While indoor air shields us from exposure to the elements, we are still exposed to indoor air pollutants -- especially if you haven’t cleaned your air ducts in a while!

 

If you have a major problem with your ductwork, such as a leak, you'll need to contact a professional as soon as possible. Leaky ducts can suck in dust, dirt, allergens, and other nasty materials from areas like basements, crawlspaces, or attics. In these situations, we urge you to simply call in the professionals! This is a job that requires very specific equipment (high powered vacuums, video equipment, etc) and a precise, well-trained method of breaking up the dirt and dust inside your ductwork.

 

Regular Maintenance

Leaky ducts or other problems aside, air ducts function most efficiently and effectively when they’re regularly maintained. However, it can be an extremely difficult job because of many hard-to-reach places and lack of equipment. Dusting off the air vents is part of the job, but if you’re having to dust them frequently -- it’s probably time to get inside the ducts for a thorough clean.

 

No matter what shape your ducts are in, calling in the professionals will ensure that your ducts aren’t circulating air full of allergen particles and other dust or dirt. Regular maintenance will also prevent further damage from occurring -- saving you time, energy, and money!

We were voted best cleaning company in Austin by the Austin Monthly and here is why. So you’ve recently arrived home from your hardware or home-decor store, and you’ve installed your brand new, stunning venetian blinds. They’re much better than the cheaper, flimsy blinds that once plagued your living and dining room, right? Your home is bright, beautiful, and you’ve found the privacy you’ve been searching for. So how do you maintain them? After all, blinds of any type are notorious for collecting dirt and dust.

 

Here at The Steam Team, we’d like to offer our assistance for maintaining your new venetian blinds! Of course there are quite a few methods of keeping them clean- but don’t worry, we’ll keep it nice and simple for you.

 

  1. Dry Dusting

 

Sure, it’s messy and frustrating, but this may be where you want to start, especially if your new blinds haven’t collected too much grime yet. To make things easier on yourself, use an adequate dusting cloth. This means, find a cloth that collects the dust and doesn’t let it wander into the air, or back onto the blinds! These cloths can be found just about anywhere (grocery stores, walmarts, etc). Slide the cloth back and forth in a controlled motion.

 

2. Steam Cleaning

 

Come on, you had to know that we’d suggest steam cleaning at some point in this blog! But truly- this is the best, most thorough method of cleaning we can offer. And yes- we’re experts! If your blinds have been splashed with grease, or are just too dirty for a dust cloth to handle, you’ll know that this is the way to go. If you’re using your own personal steam cleaning device, then great! If you don’t own one and would prefer not to rent, then contact The Steam Team to tackle this project for you.

 

Also, don’t forget! The Steam Team can take care of your draperies while we’re helping out with your blinds. We’ll either use a dry cleaning process, or a low-moisture hot water extraction method of cleaning- and we can often clean them without removing them. Even better, right? So don’t hesitate; give us a call today!
