The air ducts in our homes serve a really important function. They are responsible for circulating the air from your heating and air system into and out of every room in your home. Whether it’s warm air in winter or cool air in summer, your air ducts are what keep you comfortable regardless of the season. In fact, all of the air inside your home circulates through these ducts many times a day. This air is the air that you and your family are living in and breathing, therefore it is important that it be as clean as possible.
Air duct cleaning removes the dust, mold and other contaminants that build up in your ductwork so the air that is circulated throughout your home is cleaner and fresher. Powerful vacuums are used to suck away the dust and debris within the supply and return ducts and all of the registers and diffusers in each room resulting in a healthier living environment.
There are many benefits from having your air ducts professionally cleaned. Check out the top four:
Less Cleaning- Clean ducts reduce the dust within your home that lands on furniture and your flooring. A thorough duct cleaning will cut down on the amount of house cleaning and dusting needed to maintain a clean home.
Removes Allergens and Irritants- Our ductwork can harbor bacteria, mold spores, pollen, mildew, pet dander and much more. Even if no one in your home suffers from allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues, cleaner air makes it easier for everyone to breathe. Dust and pollutants entering the nose and lungs can trigger sneezing and coughing as well as sinus and bronchial congestion. Clean air is important for everyone but for people with respiratory issues or allergies it is crucial.
Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors- Does the air inside your home smell fresh? Pets, cooking odors, cleaners, tobacco, mold etc. all contribute to stale smells in our air ducts. Whenever the furnace or air conditioner is running, these odors are pushed throughout our home. A thorough cleaning of the air ducts will remove odor- trapping particles and give you a fresher smelling home.
Air Flow Efficiency- An accumulation of dust and grime in ductwork and on registers can restrict air flow from the furnace and air conditioner. When this happens, your system will have to work harder to heat and cool your home. This means less efficiency and higher energy bills. A clean system will perform at peak efficiency and cost effectively.
