Air Duct Cleaning
Air Duct Cleaning
How Your Home Could Be Hazardous To Your Health
Cleaning your heating and air ducts revives the air your family breathes.
The hidden contents of your home’s heating and air ducts becomes part of what your family is breathing. In our region, chances are that mold has taken up residence in the air ducts, and it can affect your family’s health in ways that go undiagnosed, because their impact is disguised.
We find also that, even in the best-kept homes, many air ducts still contain construction dust from day-one, because air duct cleaning has not yet become a home-and-family care routine. We think it should.
Who should have their air ducts cleaned?
People who are living the life our beautiful climate provides.
Experts agree, air duct cleaning is especially recommended if any of these apply to your home:
Construction and Renovation
If your home is new, fairly new, or if you’ve done some renovations, your ductwork may need to be cleaned. Ducts should be sealed off during home renovations; but often they are not, so dangerous dust and debris becomes lodged inside your ductwork.
If You Have Pets
Our precious pets can be bearers of infestations that end up in your ducts or HVAC system. If noticeable debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed, the ducts may need to be cleaned.
Our glorious subtropical climate comes with a kind of persistent heat and humidity that temperate zones don’t see. Mold is almost certain to develop here at some point, even in the tidiest homes. Mold growth inside the ductwork, and in the HVAC system, should be cleaned.
If anyone in your family has allergies the discomfort is obvious. They may be suffering too from an unexplained allergy-related illness. Still another reason to have your ducts cleaned.
EPA Indoor Air Quality studies say that your HVAC components should be cleaned at the same time, because dirty heating and cooling coils, motors, and air handlers are just as likely to gather contaminants, even during normal use. Don’t let just anyone take on the job of cleaning your home’s ductwork and air supply to keep your family healthy.
