How duct cleaning improves indoor air quality

Clean air ducts equals better air quality

The function of your air ducts is to take heated or cooled air to the rooms in your home. Naturally, you will want this air to be as clean as possible. Duct cleaning involves removing the buildup of dust and grime that can adhere to the internal surfaces of your air ducts. These particles can end up in your indoor air. Below are some of the benefits that come with duct cleaning.

Removes allergens

Dust is not the only contaminant that can build up in your air ducts. Other potential irritants include pet dander, pollen and mold spores. People with allergies are sensitive to these particles, which can trigger symptoms ranging from sinus congestion to asthma attacks. Cleaning your ducts can help prevent ill health for those who suffer.

Removes bad smells

The combination of regular household odors from food, cleaning products and mold can all lead to bad smells in the air ducts. In addition, the accumulation of dust and other particles in the air ducts make a home smell musty over time. Duct cleaning can remove the odors and give a home a cleaner, fresher smell.

Improves the flow of air

Dust in your air ducts can result in restricted airflow, which means that your HVAC system may struggle to keep your home at the desired temperature. Along with reduced comfort, you will also have to deal with higher utility bills since your furnace and air conditioner will be doing more work. Duct cleaning is far cheaper in the long run.

Prevents equipment failure

Even if the dirt in your ducts never enters your air, it can still affect HVAC components. Nothing guarantees eventual failure like excessive dust and debris in your HVAC system. One of the best ways to keep your home comfortable is to keep your system clean. Cleaning your HVAC system includes getting rid of grime in the air ducts.

According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is one of the greatest health threats facing Americans. Duct cleaning removes dirt and contaminants from your duct system that may wind up in your air. It can help to keep your home safe and healthy. If you would like to know more about getting your ducts cleaned, contact us today.
