Do you know what’s hiding in your ducts?
In today’s air-tight homes, indoor air quality is a growing concern, as it should be. Most household dust contains dust mites, mildew, mold, pollen, food partials and animal dander. Many of these nasty contaminants are circulated through the HVAC systems in your home and can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and allergies as well as restricting proper airflow throughout the home.
What is duct cleaning?
Duct cleaning refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans, fan motor and fan housing and the air handling unit housing.
If not properly installed, maintained and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth is increased and spores from such growth may be released into your home’s living space. Some of the contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in sensitive people if they are exposed to them. It is important that all components of the system are cleaned. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system can result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits.
Is anyone in the home experiencing allergies? Has anyone had unexplained illnesses? Are there any holes or gaps in the ducts? Have a bad smell when the air is on? Visible debris in your air ducts? Then YES! You probably need your ducts cleaned by a professional!
