Milwaukee Residential Duct Cleaning Professionals Serving Southeastern Wisconsin
Top Reasons to Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned Regularly
Homeowners and families spend the majority their time indoors, which means most of your time is spent breathing in air that is confined within your HVAC system. Considering Wisconsin's climate, fresh air is seldom let in. We are usually forced to switch from heating our homes to cooling them. Although you may replace the air filter on a regular basis, this just isn't enough to ensure the healthiest, cleanest air possible inside your home.
Consider the following questions to help determine if your ducts need cleaning:
- Have your air ducts ever been cleaned and if so, when? Air ducts trap dust and debris, which contaminate the air you breathe.
- Has your home recently undertaken renovation or construction? Drilling, sawing and other construction work creates excessive dust, which ends up trapped in your ducts.
- Has your home recently experienced flooding in the basement? Flooding causes mildew and mold, which can easily spread to your air ducts.
- Did the previous owners have animals you are allergic to? Like dust and debris, animal hairs and dander also gets trapped in your air ducts, which can cause serious allergy problems. A recent residential duct cleaning service in Milwaukee significantly improved allergy problems for an entire family. These allergies were caused from previously owned animals.
- Do you have a very dusty house you’re constantly cleaning? This is a sure sign your air ducts have buildup which is getting circulated throughout your home. Having your air ducts cleaned will noticeably reduce the amount of dust in your home.
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, we highly recommend getting your air ducts cleaned. The first step is to have your air ducts inspected by a professional HVAC cleaning company like Air Quality Controllers, Inc. We employ only NADCA certified technicians to ensure all work is done to the highest standards. Our air vent cleaners remove all airborne dust and debris from your entire air duct system for improved air quality in your home. You will breathe easier when we're done.

How Often Should Air Ducts Be Cleaned ?
Air duct cleaning your home provides cleaner, safer air for the entire family. This is especially true if other family members are allergic to pollutants in the air. We recommend having the supply and return of your air ducts inspected on a yearly basis. Here are a few guidelines for determining how often your air ducts should be cleaned:
- Every 3-5 years, the NADCA recommends having your ducts cleaned.
- When moving into a new home, unless the previous homeowner already had ductwork completed within the past 3 years.
- After completion of an in-home construction project (due to sawdust and other materials spreading throughout your home).
- If you have pets in your home, or the previous owners had pets, a yearly duct cleaning is advisable (sometimes bi-annual if your pets cause allergy problems).

How Much Does Air Duct Cleaning Cost?
Air Quality Controller’s base price for air duct cleaning in Milwaukee is from 300-400 dollars. The price fluctuates based on the amount of square footage. If the square footage is over 3,000 feet, you can expect your air duct cleaning cost to be over 1,000 dollars.
Sub-contractors might offer you a price less than 100 dollars. Don’t be fooled by the low price. Sub-contractors get paid more for how many jobs they get done in one day. Therefore an air duct cleaning sub-contractor will not take the time to thoroughly clean your ducts. Air quality controllers only schedules two projects a day to ensure our work is thoroughly done.

Your air ducts are used year-round, regardless of weather. Air ducts that have not been frequently cleaned can put a strain on your heating and cooling system, resulting in higher energy costs. This is especially true for Wisconsin’s extreme winter cold and surprisingly hot summer days.
AC condenser and evaporator coils are designed to provide efficient cooling. Airborne contaminates build up and clog the coil fins, decreasing airflow and energy efficiency by up to 35%. Dirty AC coils mean your system is working harder and longer than necessary. On the heating end of the spectrum, furnace blowers with poor filtration accumulate dust and dirt. Buildup reduces efficiency by up to 50%. An overworked heat exchanger runs the risk of overheating and cracking, as well as complete motor failure. Air Quality Controllers’ HVAC cleaning technicians provide thorough furnace blower and AC coil cleaning services to maximize your system’s energy efficiency and longevity.

Q: How do I prevent air duct contamination in my home?
A: There are many simple methods to prevent dirty air ducts. The first is to use the manufacturer’s recommended air filter for your HVAC system. If you're not sure which filter to use, Air Quality Controllers will help you find the right one for your unit. Maintaining a clean home, avoiding moisture entering your ducts, and scheduling a professional cleaning on a regular basis will also help prevent contamination of your air ducts.
Q: What are some spring cleaning tips for air ducts?
A: Spring cleaning is a chance to remove harmful irritants from your home after a long winter trapped indoors. It is very easy to miss certain sports while cleaning, resulting in dirt, mold, pet dander, and airborne irritants remaining in your home and air ducts. Air Quality Controllers recommends arranging a duct cleaning early in spring, before the full force of allergy season. After your ducts and vents are cleaned, focus on the rest of the house. Otherwise, dirty ducts will just distribute dust throughout the rest of the house you’ve finished cleaning.
Q: Typically how long does a home air duct cleaning service take?
A: The time to clean a home’s air ducts depends on the size of the home, the number of HVAC systems and the number of air duct specialists on the job. Be sure to ask at the time of inspection how long the job will take. The inspection should provide a good indication of what to expect when you have the cleaning done.
Q: How can we determine if our HVAC system cleaning was effective?
A: The first way to determine if a cleaning was effective is to perform a visual inspection of your HVAC system before and after the cleaning. Any dust or debris noticed prior to the cleaning should have been removed. This inspection can be done with a flashlight and mirror. An air duct cleaning specialist from Air Quality Controllers will also photograph the interior of your ductwork before starting, and also after cleaning, so you can see the results for yourself.

A: YES. Clean air ducts help HVAC systems run more efficiently. The less debris in your ducts, the less work your HVAC system has to do to circulate the air. Schedule your air quality control service today and reduce your energy bills while improving your indoor air quality.
Q: How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned?
A: We recommend having your dryer vents cleaned every year.

Q: What does Air Quality Controllers do?
A: Simply put, we clean your air duct systems to provide cleaner air and a more comfortable living/work environment. Our air quality control experts use specially designed tools and advanced power vacuums which are specific to duct cleaning work.

We then provide an inspection after cleaning your duct system, checking for mold, bacteria and other airborne contaminants.
Q: Are there health benefits to getting my air ducts cleaned?
A: There are many benefits to having your air ducts cleaned. Allergy and asthma sufferers benefit the most from clean air ducts. Air ducts are accumulators of many particles including dust and pet dander, which then get circulated back into your home. Our air quality control technicians have the expertise and advanced technologies to ensure you receive a thorough air duct cleaning and all the benefits of cleaner air.
Q: Why should I get my air ducts cleaned?
A: Dirty ducts contribute to indoor air pollution by releasing dust and mold spores into the air.Air duct cleaning helps relieve symptoms of allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments. It removes dirt, animal hair and dander and pollen, reduces the cost of heating and cooling, and reduces household dust up to 85%.
Q: Should my air ducts be sanitized?
A: Yes. EnviroCon is the sanitizer Air Quality Controllers uses. EnviroCon may be used on all building HVAC systems - residential, commercial, industrial and health facilities. EnviroCon is EPA registered to retard fungal growth, including mold, mildew, yeasts and algae. It is easily applied with the use of a hand held fogger. The treatments may be applied to occupied spaces. It is unscented and applied after a thorough air duct cleaning.
Q: How often should my air ducts be cleaned?
A: If your ducts have had little to no attention in the last five years, a thorough cleaning is due. For people who suffer from allergies or asthma, every three years is recommended. The air ducts should also be cleaned right after new construction and remodeling due to drywall dust that can circulate through your home for up to 12 years.
