These resources are easy to access, it’s usually quite simple to schedule a visit. However, after you set down the phone and look around your home, you oftentimes can feel that you lack some information. “What do I do now?” you ask, “How do I know I’m prepared?” These questions can sometimes be ridden with anxiety, but we’re here to put your heart at ease. In this article, we’re going to discuss how to prepare for your duct cleaning appointment in a way that ensures a smooth and happy process for everyone involved.

Why Prepare for a Duct Cleaning?

Preparing for duct cleaning is an essential step in ensuring a smooth and efficient cleaning process. By taking the time to prepare your home, you’re not only making the job easier for our duct cleaners, but you’re also enhancing the quality of the air you breathe. A well-prepared home allows for a thorough cleaning of your duct system, removing dust and debris that can negatively impact the air you breathe.


Preparing Your Home for Duct Cleaning


Clearing the Workspace

Our duct cleaning specialists need clear access to your ducts to provide a thorough cleaning. This means moving any furniture or items that might obstruct the work space. 

If your appointment includes a dryer vent cleaning, or crawl space cleaning and waterproofing, it’s important to provide clear access to these areas as well. This might involve moving items. A clear workspace allows for a more thorough and efficient cleaning process.


Cleaning Up Outdoor Units

Outdoor units can often be overlooked, but they’re an important part of your HVAC system. Before your appointment, take a few minutes to check your outdoor units. Clear away any leaves or debris that might obstruct the cleaning process.


Preparing Your Pets for the Cleaning Process

We understand that your pets are part of your family, and their safety is a priority during the cleaning process. Consider securing your pets in a safe area during the cleaning appointment. This not only keeps them safe but also allows our technicians to work without distractions.


Securing Your Pets

During the cleaning process, doors may need to be left open, which could be a risk for curious pets. Consider securing your pets in a safe area or even scheduling a pet playdate away from home during the cleaning process.


Informing the Technicians

If you have pets, it’s important to let our technicians know. This helps us ensure their safety and avoid any potential distractions during the cleaning process.


Deciding Your Presence During the Cleaning Process


Staying or Leaving

Whether you decide to stay or leave during the cleaning process is entirely up to you. Some homeowners prefer to be present, while others prefer to return to a freshly cleaned home. Whatever your preference, you can rest assured that our team will respect your decision and work diligently to clean your ducts.


Communicate with the Technicians

If you decide to leave during the cleaning process, please let our technicians know. We’ll need to know how to secure your home once the cleaning is complete.
