Online PR News – 12-July-2010 – – Mikes' Vent Cleaning is Long Island's ecological one-stop solution for cleaning air con ducts. Their patented rotobrush air duct cleaning has been featured in prominent magazines and newspapers. They are renowned in the tri-state area for prompt, efficient and quality service.

Keeping air ducts and vents clean and free from pollen, mold, mildew, dust mites and animal dander is a major concern for home and business owners today as indoor air quality can exacerbate allergies. Mike's Vent Cleaning uses advanced cleaning methods that remove bacteria, mold and fungi using vacuums and brushes at the point of contact without using harsh chemicals and sealers anytime during the cleaning process.

Technicians start by conducting a thorough inspection of the entire HVAC system including the filters, the fans, coils and the ducts. Cleaning these and testing the air quality within the system will determine if there is indeed a problem that needs further attention. If further attention is warranted, Mike's Vent Cleaning technicians get behind the walls and under the boards to inspect the integrity of the ducts to ascertain if there is a breach that needs to be fixed. Cleaning the ducts without fixing the underlying cause will only be an absolute waste of time and money.

Problems in the air con ducts arise when a breach in the insulating material or in the ducts themselves allow unfiltered air to enter or worse if there is a significant build-up of moisture, the infestation of mold within the circuit. Since most, or all, of the ducts are behind walls, under floorboards or in the ceiling it won't be readily evident when such a breach occurs. However, the air quality will deteriorate, evidenced by musty order or sudden increase in allergies within the home.

Air quality in the duct is tested for indications that mold colonies are starting to bloom. Two things to consider if this test is positive. First, there is an underlying problem that is causing this and it needs to be addressed. Once it is addressed, the ducts need to be cleaned. If the ducts are cleaned without the underlying problem rectified, the mold will return.

Once it is determined that cleaning is required and the underlying cause has been rectified, Mikes Vent Cleaning crew use the patented technology of rotobrush air duct cleaning to clean and decontaminate every inch of air con duct. The use of this patented rotobrush technology is a safe method of cleaning the ducts as it does not use any abrasive chemicals or sealers within the ducts. Use of sealers and chemicals within the ducts can be extremely hazardous to the occupants as chemical residue remain after the cleaning and is mixed with the air flowing through the ducts causing it to be very easily inhaled by the occupants. Inhaling these abrasive chemicals is toxic and a sever health hazard.
