Duct Cleaning For A Healthy Home

Posted on September 7, 2015 by
It’s easy to forget about the importance of air quality. You don’t see the tiny particles of dust that float around in your home until they collect on your windowsill and darken the floors. Yet air quality makes a huge difference for the comfort and health of you and your family.

Signs That Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning
If your ducts need cleaning, you may notice a lot of dust collecting in your home. You may also notice that the air feels stale and stagnant. Take a look at your air ducts and if there is any buildup of dust, debris, mold, funcus, or rodent/insect infestation, then it is time to get your ducts cleaned.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Most people don’t know that clean ducts are not only good for your health, but that they also lower your monthly energy bills. With a clear pathway for air, your furnace and air conditioner don’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature of your home. This also means that your furnace or air conditioner will have a longer lifespan and will need to be fixed or replaced less often. Whether or not you or anyone in your family has respiratory problems, such as asthma or allergies, cleaner air helps you feel better.

What Is Duct Cleaning?
Duct cleaning can be done on any HVAC system that moves air. This includes grilles, diffusers, drip pans, fan housing, air handling units and much more. Especially when HVAC systems are not maintained, HVAC components can be contaminated with dust and even microbiological growth, including mold. Mold releases spores, which can then create health problems in your home.

Proper duct cleaning follows industry established standards. Tools include machinery that dislodges dirt and machinery that vacuums the dirt out. Professionals are needed to ensure that all components of the HVAC system are properly cleaned.

What Should You Expect From Your Duct Cleaner?
As long as you stay informed, duct cleaning is a great idea to maintain the health of your home and the efficiency of your HVAC system. It’s important to know what to expect from your duct cleaner. These are the steps that a reputable duct cleaner will take:

1. Access entire HVAC system to ensure a thorough cleaning.
2. Take note of materials in the duct, prior to cleaning. Certain materials require specialized cleaning equipment.
3. Send loosened particles out of the home.
4. Carefully ensure protection of carpet and furniture.
5. Return system parts properly, including re-insulation when necessary.
