When looking for an air duct cleaning company one helpful tip we would advise is to choose a company who is NADCA certified. When a company says they are NADCA certified, the entire team of technicians is NADCA certified. NADCA is the National Air Duct Cleaning Association. Many other companies may only meet the minimum requirements of one technician being certified. Sometimes that technician is the owner of the company or one person on staff. In this case, it is not best for one person to be certified because they may not even be performing the work on the field.
Hiring a company whose team of technicians are not certified by NADCA may make the air duct cleaning process difficult because they may not clean and remove particles from a duct work and make the air you breathe worse. A NADCA certified duct-cleaning company would adhere to all the guidelines. According to NADCA, “NADCA standards and certifications are referenced on a regular basis to ensure that HVAC systems are assessed, cleaned, and restored in a safe and efficient manner.” In addition, NADCA ACR is a performance standard and the standard provides companies with practical, reliable and industry information on several topics that help educate those who are certified.
Some topics that can help several technicians are topics on Inspections, Work Plans, Engineering Controls, Cleaning and Restoration Procedures, and Cleanliness Verification and Documentation. Overall, the company who is NADCA certified will reassure you a added value of security to the indoor air quality in your environment and to your health.
