Your air ducts work to ensure a continuous flow of quality air steadily flows from your heating and cooling equipment into your home. So, you have only one job to do to make sure this flow of air remains uncontaminated and free from obstacles: duct cleaning!
Proper air duct cleaning will provide these benefits to your home:
1. Improves Air Quality
How clean is your indoor air? Clean air translates to good health. Whether or not your family members suffer from respiratory conditions, you should always ensure that your indoor air is free from pathogens.
Every breath of unclean air triggers coughing and sneezing, which can further affect your sinuses or cause bronchial congestion. Regular cleaning of your air ducts will help prevent these health implications and make sure any accumulated dirt, debris, and other airborne particles are removed from your air supply. Clean ducts are a big part of maintaining indoor air quality!
2. Removes Allergens
The combination of dirt, dust, allergens, and microorganisms is harmful to you and your family. Contaminated air carries:
mildew, and other pathogens.
Properly cleaning your air ducts will help reduce such illnesses, especially for those with severe environmental allergies.
3. Eliminates Odors
Each house has a unique smell. From detergents and cologne to food and cleaning supplies—each space takes on its own homey aura. So, when something out of the ordinary jeopardizes your nice smelling home, you’ll know.
Different contaminants lingering around your house, from dirt to mold, will eventually blend with your indoor air. This combo then causes an unpleasant smell to spread throughout your house. If you notice a musty odor in your home, your ducts may be compromised.
Have your ducts professionally cleaned in order to remove any stale or unusual smells.
4. Improves Duct Performance
Heavy grime and dust buildup can clog your ducts, affecting the efficiency of your HVAC system. A blocked duct will make your system work harder to achieve its standard output. Proper cleaning will ensure it works efficiently, reducing your utility costs while increasing your system’s productivity.
