What is a Duct Cleaning and Why is it Important?

One of the most important factors in a home is the air quality. When a homeowner takes great care of their indoor air quality, they’ll reap the benefit of keeping their house clean, too. That’s because, as the air in your living space passes through the ducts, it is polluted by allergens and dust that create an unclean environment. These air ducts are important and need to be cleaned regularly.

Here are 5 reasons to have your air ducts professionally cleaned by our experts.

1. Clean Air

The most important thing to consider is that the air in your home goes into your lungs. If your air ducts have collected dust, pet dander or other allergens, these particles will be in the air you breathe and can worsen asthma or cause your family to suffer from respiratory infections. When your air ducts are thoroughly clean, you will not have to worry about breathing in dust or allergens from the air in your home.

2. Efficient Airflow

Air ducts that are free of dust, pet hair, or other debris allow air to flow smoothly and quickly through your home. Clean air ducts will keep your HVAC system working more efficiently, saving you money and using less energy. If your air ducts are dirty, your HVAC system will be working harder to get the air through the ducts.

3. Eliminate Allergens

Mold, microorganisms, and bacteria are in the air in our homes. Your air system pulls these small particles into the air ducts when your air is circulated through your home. Some of these particles will get stuck in the ducts while the circulating air will grab other particles and force them back out into your home. If you have your air ducts cleaned, these particles and micro-organisms will be removed. Then, clean air will flow through the ducts be released back into your home.

4. A Cleaner Home

You regularly dust and clean your home, but the same dust is building up in your air vents and ducts. If you see dust on your coffee table, you know it is time to clean the house. The dust in your ducts in unseen and so it goes unnoticed. Even though you can’t see the dust inside the ducts, it is there, and it is contributing to the dust on your furniture. Keeping your air free of dust will help your house stay cleaner.

5. Remove Odors

Pet hair gets carried in the airflow of your home. As the dust and pet dander accumulate, germs begin to grow which can make your house have an unpleasant odor. Even everyday things you use like cooking sprays can get caught in the air stream and are carried into your ductwork. These smells settle with dust and other particles into your air ducts. A professional must clean your air ducts to remove them from your home.
