You all know the importance of breathing clean, fresh air. Now think about those neglected air ducts of yours and the quality of air once it passes through there.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Whether you believe it or not, Environmental Protection Agency has indoor air pollution listed as the fourth environmental threat! In their opinion, the air in our homes is 70 times more polluted than the air outside because it has to pass through the air ducts. Some of the contaminants found in a ductwork are: dust mites, mold, bacteria, animal dander and carbon monoxide. People with allergies and asthma will certainly benefit from breathing in the air that’s not full of harmful substances.
You’ll Decrease the Amount of Dust
You’ve been cleaning your home, dusted everything thoroughly, but after a couple of hours it seems there’s dust everywhere around you. That’s because your HVAC system is actually blowing the dust from the air ducts into your home. So, not only will clean air ducts improve your family’s health, but will also save you from having to dust so often and with such a poor result to boot.
If you wish to keep your system from premature failing, you should make sure it’s regularly cleaned. The accumulation of dirt and debris on your air filters will soon have them completely clogged. Clean ductwork means that your system will not need frequent repairs or replacements. What’s more, you’ll save money on the electricity bill, because your HVAC won’t have to work as hard to reach the desired temperature.
Don’t Let Your Home Smell Bad
Air ducts, like any other enclosed space, tend to smell bad if not cleaned regularly. Some of the odors are just irritating (like the smell of mildew, stinky feet, rotting garbage or cigarette smoke), while others can be hazardous (burning, sewage, rotten eggs, gun powder and exhaust fumes). Unfortunately, only those irritating smells can go away after professional cleaning services; those from a dangerous group demand a system check and repair.
