Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home influences your health? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it pertains to your health and comfort. The majority of homeowners often neglect this important aspect of indoor living, which can lead to negative health effects. Indoor air quality should be everyone’s concern. Studies have shown that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, ultimately proving the severity of the situation when indoor air quality is ignored.
Breathe fresh air – indoors and outdoors
If your home uses a forced-air system such as a central air conditioner or furnace, the ducts play a vital role by transporting conditioned air throughout the house. That means dirt and dust accumulating in the duct system will quickly be spread all over the place, affecting your breathing and overall quality of life. When you see visible dust coming from vents or notice a significant decrease in your system’s efficiency, it may be time for duct cleaning.
Our professional duct will use special brushes to dislodge debris without damaging the ducts themselves, then take a high-powered vacuum cleaner to collect the debris and dust. Finally, we use chemical sealants and biocides to ensure that your ducts will stay clean going forward.
You’ll know your ducts are clean when you notice a markedly better smell in the air, and you may see a small difference on your next utility bill. Asthma and allergy sufferers in your home should notice a difference almost immediately after we’ve finished cleaning the ducts.
Moreover, once your ducts have been professionally cleaned, they tend to stay that way. Depending on smoking, pets, general home cleanliness and a few other factors, most duct systems can go between three and 10 years between cleanings.
