How to Get Ready for a Scheduled Duct Cleaning

You are currently viewing How to Get Ready for a Scheduled Duct Cleaning

Once you’ve scheduled a duct cleaning for your home, your next step is to prepare for the service.

While it can seem like an inconvenience, taking steps to make the service easier for the technician will help the process go faster. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much to prepare for the service call.

Plan to Stay for the Service

You don’t necessarily have to be present throughout the procedure, but you should at least make yourself available at the start. Your technician may suggest tips to improve indoor air quality or point out problems with your ducts that you’ll want to know about.

Confine Your Pets

If you have four-legged friends at home, take steps to keep them out of the way. While an experienced technician probably won’t have allergies or a fear of animals, your pets could still be a distraction. They might interfere with the technician while the technician is working or accidentally injure themselves on the duct-cleaning equipment.

If possible, board your pet in a facility or ask a friend to look after them for a couple of hours. Alternatively, you can keep them outdoors if you have an enclosed yard.

Remove Obstructions Near Vents, Registers, and HVAC Equipment

Knowing when to clean your ducts is usually pretty simple since you can see when dust and debris have collected on registers and vents.

When you schedule service, prepare the areas for the technician by removing obstructions ahead of time. That includes moving furniture, stacks of papers, and anything else that might be blocking the registers and vents throughout your home. 

Make sure the technician can easily access your air conditioner and furnace as well. The cleaning will involve accessing these HVAC components, so you’ll need to keep these areas clear.
