Why can’t I do Air Duct Cleaning Portland Or on my own home myself?

We’ve been asked: Can’t I save a few bucks and do the Air Duct Cleaning Portland Or on my home by myself with a Shopvac? We always stay 100% honest at J&M, so the answer is Yes & No. A Shopvac is a great tool to clean air duct’s right near grills and keep up on maintainance. Shopvacing air vents should be done if debris or garbage falls into your air ducts. Much better to suck out any garbage from your air ducts before it has a chance to circulate thru the heating system!

Can you actually clean air ducts with a Shopvac? No. Here’s a few reasons:

-The air duct cleaning vacuums we use have 2 powerful motors in them, each of the motors more powerful then a single motor on a top of the line Shopvac

-The air duct cleaning motors are protected by dual HEPA filters. Deep inside your ducts, bacteria will grow on the accumalated dust & debris. Using a regualr Shop vac to clean air ducts with out proper filtration will release these bacteria’s into the air your family breathes

-Flexible air duct has a spiral core to improve air flow. This spiral core can also trap dirt. With out the brush bristles knocking the debris loose during air duct cleaning, the vacuum alone is ineffective
