It is easy to forget about the ductwork in your home — out of sight, out of mind, right?
However, neglecting your ductwork can cause you and the residents of your home to experience a wide range of heath problems. While your ductwork’s main job is to carry heated or cooled air into your home or business, it can also carry many other things along with the air, including:
If you ignore your ductwork, all of these pollutants will be forced into your home, not only making it look dirty with dust and dirt but also exacerbating allergies and, in severe cases, make your family ill. To prevent this from happening, you need to have your ducts professionally cleaned.
Air duct cleaning is an excellent way of helping to keep your family healthy. During the air duct cleaning appointment, we will visually inspect your air ducts with cameras to determine the level of buildup. After the inspection, we will use our specialized tools to brush away the debris and vacuum them into a contained system. We work in your ducts from the back forward to avoid leaving any debris behind. After the cleaning, we will re-inspect your ductwork to make sure they are completely clean. We can also apply a solution to prevent the buildup of mold in between cleanings.
Your ducts are likely dirty from the first moment you use your forced air system.
During installation, debris can be left behind, indoor and outdoor air can deposit bacteria and debris in the ducts through normal use and if your ductwork has holes, gaps or leaks, dust, dirt and bacteria can enter your ductwork from the attic space.
If you do have leaks in your duct system, a thorough cleaning is especially vital due to rodents and other critters that can live in and die within your attic space. Because air holds moisture, as it passes through your ductwork it can allow mold to grow and thrive. The spores that mold produce will then be passed into your home, posing a great health risk for your family.
