Air Duct Cleaning in the Twin Cities Area

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revealed that the average U.S. resident spends 93 percent of their life indoors. Breathing quality indoor air, therefore, is vital for maintaining optimal health. Clean air helps prevent many environmental health hazards, such as asthma.

On top of that, it promotes better sleep. Airborne allergens can affect sleep quality, resulting in sleep-disorder breathing issues, such as sleep apnea. When you have quality indoor air, you won’t have to worry about respiratory problems.

If your goal is to maintain good indoor air at your home or business, you’ll need to keep your air ducts clean.

What is Air duct cleaning?

This process involves the clearing of debris from various cooling and heating components of forced air systems, including:

  • Supply and return registers and air ducts
  • Diffusers and grilles
  • Condensate drain pans or drip pans
  • Heating and cooling coils
  • Fan housing
  • Fan motor
  • Air handling unit housing

Experts recommend cleaning the air ducts every few years to dislodge the dust and other stubborn debris in your HVAC system. Frequent duct cleaning (every few months or so) is encouraged if you:

  • Have indoor pets
  • Are sensitive to indoor air quality
  • Have occupants (family members, office workers, etc.) who have respiratory issues
  • Have recently renovated your home or business

Benefits of Cleaning Your Air Ducts

Here are the benefits you’ll get when you make duct cleaning part of your maintenance routine
  • Improves air quality – You breathe the air passing through the ducts, which can harbor allergens such as pet dander and pollen. These can invade your living space via the supply registers and pose problems for people with allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems. Having your air ducts cleaned will help keep your space free of unwanted pollutants and enhance air quality.
  • Protects HVAC equipment – A dirty ventilation system contaminates blower wheels, clogs air conditioner coils, and causes other problems that can result in expensive repairs. Duct cleaning extends the life of your heating, cooling and ventilation system.
  • Boosts energy efficiency – Dirt impedes the flow of air to and from the components of your HVAC system. Clogged ducts force your AC unit or furnace to expend more energy to do its job. Clearing the debris from the air ducts allows your equipment to perform at peak efficiency.

If you live in the Twin Cities area, you know that a good air conditioner is a necessity in the summer. If you notice your home or business is hot inside despite your air conditioner running at full blast, you might think you need air conditioner repair or service. But many people are surprised to find that a thorough air duct cleaning solves the problem.

Central A/C systems typically move 400 to 450 cubic feet of air per minute through your ducts. Imagine how much harder they have to work—and how much less air they end up moving—if your ducts are clogged. Like cholesterol in an artery, dirt, dust, and debris can build up and reduce the amount of air that flows through your ducts. This means you’re wasting energy and money cooling that junk in your ducts rather than cooling your home or business.


Twin Cities Clean Air uses the latest technology and technicians with 64 combined years of experience in air duct cleaning to ensure the air in your home or business is as pure and clean as the air outside.

We start with a thorough inspection of your ducts. We use fiber optic cameras to look for buildups of dust, dirt, and debris, as well as breaches or gaps in the seams that could allow particulates in. We then use brushes and sweepers to knock loose the gunk that has built up on the walls of your ducts. Once that is complete, we close off your vent and use powerful vacuum suction to remove the loosened dirt and debris. Finally, we perform a second camera inspection of your ducts to ensure that we successfully removed all of the dirt and allergens from your duct system.
