The Most Common Threat from Severe Weather: Power Outages

Hurricane Matthew may have weakened and drifted far out into the Atlantic Ocean, but many homeowners and businesses in South Florida are still dealing with the aftermath of the storm, including power outages that stretch all along the east COAST OF THE STATE. In fact, since Hurricane Matthew impacted the area, Florida Power and Light reported roughly 1.2 million customers across Florida experienced power interruptions and extended outages. As homeowners and businesses regain power, HVAC UNIT REPAIR and air duct cleaning may be in order as life begins to resume as normal.
South Florida relies heavily on central air conditioning to keep cool not only in the summer, but in the fall months as well when hurricane season is at its peak. Stanley Steemer offers insight for those who are wondering how power outages in their home or office affect their air duct cleaning schedule they may have had in place.

Air Duct Cleaning After Power Outages

Power outages from storms of this severity are often due to high winds and extensive flooding. They can cause damage to you air conditioning unit, and not only to the outside components but interior mechanisms as well. Heavy rain can seep into the crawl spaces and attics of homes, spawning bacteria and mold growth within your ductwork. With heavy rain comes flooding, which can cause sewage overflow that produces additional bacteria that may be circulated in your air ducts. The more bacteria and mold your air ducts are subject to, the more contaminated your indoor air quality becomes. Air duct cleaning eliminates the mold and bacteria that flooding produces if your ducts become infiltrated with water.

They were efficient and cleaned up after they were done. They also let me know about a UV light I can use on my a/c to help rid of mold and mildew from getting on my unit which was my problem before I got my new unit.


    Q: Why do i need to have my air ducts cleaned?

    A: Air duct cleaning is crucial to your health and your budget. The ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY estimates that an average six-room home collects 40 pounds of dust, dirt and other allergens throughout the year. If left uncleaned, the allergens are then circulated into the air inside your home, being especially harmful to those with asthma and allergies. The buildup of dust and debris also weakens the performance of your HVAC unit, causing it to work harder which results in higher energy bills. If left alone, this could cause you to have to replace your entire HVAC unit.

    Q: How often should air ducts be cleaned?

    A: It is recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned at least every three to five years. You should also have your air ducts cleaned if you’ve recently had furnace or ductwork completed, if you’ve recently remodeled or constructed your home and if there has been recent flooding or water damage, as all of these scenarios can cause excessive build-up of sediment, dust and bacteria.

    Q: How long will it take my office furniture to dry?

    A: The signs you should look for when determining if you need your air ducts cleaned are: dirty vent covers, dark lines on walls or ceilings, excessive dust on tables and objects, difference in temperature from room to room and a spike in your energy bill.

    Q: How does stanley steemer clean air ducts?

    A: After technicians complete a thorough inspection, they use a HEPA-filtered vacuum system to clean the furnace, evaporator coil, blower and vent covers. Then the vacuum is attached to the main trunk line in combination with agitation tools that loosen and pull out debris that has settled deep within the duct system. After all of that is completed, compressed air is blown through each duct to ensure the vacuum effectively removes all debris.

    Q: Why is being asthma and allergy-friendly important to air duct cleaning?

    A: Stanley Steemer technicians are asthma and allergy-friendly certified, meaning we provide cleaning methods that have been rigorously tested and proven to effectively remove the majority of allergens in the air, which is one of the main reasons to get an air duct cleaning. We also offer asthma and allergy-friendly certified HVAC filters designed specifically to trap pollutants and allergens while prohibiting the spread and growth of bacteria on the filter.
