Duct Cleaning

Des Moines Duct Cleaning Services

Imagine what your carpet would look like in a few years if it were never vacuumed or cleaned. That’s what your air ducts look like without any upkeep. That’s why we offer Des Moines duct cleaning services that feature some of the strongest duct cleaning machines in all of Iowa.

Why should you get a duct cleaning?

Give my Home Comfort Heroes four hours to give your HVAC ducts a thorough cleaning and you can:

  • Avoid headaches, sleep problems, allergies and more
  • Unclog sinuses that cause pain, drowsiness and mental confusion
  • Avoid spending money on over-the-counter drugs that are expensive and addictive
  • Be more comfortable, refreshed and alert
  • Lower your energy bills by eliminating the blockage of airflow that robs your furnace and air conditioner of efficiency

Over time, dust, smoke, pollen, mold and fungus build up in your ductwork. This creates a “chemical and biological” soup that you are breathing in that can cause these health problems. Unfortunately, a well-insulated home can intensify the problem since the air inside the home becomes trapped. Each time your furnace comes on it “force feeds” this unhealthy mixture of contaminated air into every room in your home. In fact, the EPA has found this air in your home to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Here’s more information on why a duct cleaning is worth the investment.

The best way to clean HVAC ducts is with a machine powerful enough to create a strong vacuum throughout the entire ductwork system, while supplying very high pressure combined with agitation. That’s why we have invested in the most powerful source removal duct cleaning machines in the state of Iowa.

4 Hidden Health Hazards of Dirty Air Ducts

If the thought of dust and pollen circulating freely through your home via your air ducts isn’t enough to convince you that duct cleaning is a must-have service, more creepy-crawly details certainly will. In the dark corners of your air ducts lay contaminants, a really nice name for the composite of individual microscopic particles that can cause a variety of health problems. Some of these particles include:

  • Insect remains and rodent droppings
  • Pet dander and hair
  • Mold and mildew
  • Fungal spores
  • Bacterial microbes
  • Chemical pollutants

Breathing in fungus and insect remains is not only icky, but it can wreak havoc on your health. The Environmental Protection Agency has found exposure to air pollutants is five times higher than outdoor levels and is a large concern because we spend 90% of our time indoors. Recognizing the signs and impact of poor indoor air quality can help you make scheduled duct cleaning, fast!

Frequent Sinus Infections

Dirty air ducts bring a constant barrage of contaminated air into your nasal passageways and can cause sinus cavities to become inflamed. If you have recurring sinus infections or a chronic one that’s hard to kick, your air ducts may be the culprit.

Dry, Itchy Skin

Circulating mold, mildew, and fungus can inflame pre-existing skin conditions like eczema, and the mixture of dust and pollen can cause rashes or hives.

Worsening Allergies or Asthma

Life is difficult enough with allergies and asthma but can be made even more so when pollen and other respiratory-illness triggers are being circulated into your living space.


From sensitivity to lingering smells trapped in your air duct to pain brought on by constant sneezing and coughing, headaches can be another sign you’re ready for a duct cleaning service.

What to Expect During an Air Duct Cleaning

Our cleaning service begins when one of our trained Home Comfort Heroes visits your home and evaluates your air duct system. After your no-surprises quote is set, our technician will inspect, clean, and test every part of your home’s air system, including supply and return air ducts, registers, blower motor, grilles, evaporator coils, and more. Our Home Comfort Heroes will remove contaminants using state-of-the-art cleaning tools that “wash” the ductwork system with high pressure and agitation.
