**Why Air Duct Sanitizing Matters**


Much like air duct cleaning, the process of duct sanitizing is essential for enhancing your indoor air quality. However, air duct sanitizing takes an extra step beyond cleaning, employing additional measures to reduce the presence of mold, bacteria, germs, and other microorganisms, in addition to removing dust and dirt from your home’s ductwork.


At Genie Air Duct Cleaning, we utilize the fogging method for our sanitizing process. Our fogging technique effectively eliminates any living microbiological growth in your AC unit and ductwork. We employ a natural disinfectant that poses no harm to occupants.


This disinfectant is transformed into tiny aerosolized droplets, ensuring comprehensive coverage on every surface of your ductwork. To sanitize and disinfect your air ducts, our technicians use an all-natural EPA-approved disinfectant formula. It’s a fragrance-free, low-toxic treatment currently employed in hospitals, medical offices, other healthcare facilities, and homes.

**What Is Air Duct Sanitizing?**


Air duct sanitizing is an additional service provided by our certified air duct technicians at Genie Air Duct Cleaning while cleaning your home. Following the ductwork cleaning process, while your HVAC system is still connected to the air duct truck and under negative air pressure, we apply the sanitizer. Our technicians use a fogger to apply the sanitizer, and due to the negative air pressure, it coats the entire interior of the duct system. This product leaves no lingering scent and is safe enough for use in hospitals.

**How Does It Differ from Air Duct Cleaning?**


You might wonder about the difference between a standard air duct cleaning and sanitizing the ducts. A standard air duct cleaning removes debris such as dirt or drywall dust from your ductwork. Sanitizing goes a step further by adding disinfection and deodorization to your home’s ductwork while also eliminating hidden mold or mildew. Additionally, it prevents bacterial, viral, and fungal growth for approximately six months after application.

**Why Should You Sanitize Your Air Ducts?**


There are numerous situations in which you and your family can benefit from air duct sanitization. If you’re moving into a new home, sanitization ensures that any unknown contaminants from the previous homeowner are addressed. It can also be especially beneficial during the winter months by reducing the germs your HVAC system circulates in your indoor air. Sanitization further aids in eliminating triggers for individuals with allergies or asthma. Additionally, it is particularly helpful for those with weakened immune systems, such as newborns or individuals returning home from the hospital, by eliminating mold or mildew.

**How Often Should You Sanitize?**


While there is no strict guideline for how frequently you should sanitize your ductwork, if you suffer from asthma or allergies, you may want to consider having it done every few years. If your home experiences a flood and moisture enters the duct system, sanitization is a prudent step. Keep in mind that the frequency of sanitization depends on the specific needs of each household.
