Air ducts are the air highways of your home. All of the air in your home circulates through these vents multiple times a day. You make sure your HVAC system is up to date and clean by having maintenance done and changing filters, but then the air from that system travels through these ducts. Are the ducts clean or are they dirtying the air you and your family breathe all day? Getting your air ducts inspected and cleaned if necessary is a great way to achieve peace of mind about the air quality in your home.
Have a Cleaner Living Environment
Since your air ducts circulate all the air in your home, if they are dirty, they also circulate the dust, dirt, and grime in your ducts. A professional cleaning of your air ducts reduces the dust and dirt that would otherwise circulate. As a bonus, there will be less dust to land on your furniture and need to be cleaned.
Reduce Allergens and Breathe Easier
In addition to dust and dirt, there can also be allergens in your ducts that circulate when air moves through them. Pet dander, mold spores, pollen, and bacteria can hide in your ducts and circulate out once you turn on your systems for the season, causing allergy misery. Making sure the ducts and the system are clean will help anyone in your family with seasonal allergies breath easier all year long.
Get Rid of Bad Odors
There are lots of potential odors that can linger in your home. Pet smells, paint fumes, the remnants of cleaning products are all stale odors that can persist in the ducts. The smells then circulate through the house again when the system kicks on when the summer starts. The accumulation of dirt and dust can also lead to a musty odor that blows through the house when the system is on. Cleaning the ducts can help rid you of these unpleasant smells and freshen your house.
Improve Air Flow
The heavy build up of dust and dirt can also impede airflow through the vents. The grime builds up and stresses the system, reducing efficiency. Getting your system cleaned will keep it operating at peak efficiency and save you money on energy costs and maintenance.
