Benefits of Cleaning Your Air Ducts

One major benefit that comes along with Duct cleaning is it will improve your air quality. Take a deep breath. What are you breathing in? Every time you breathe in dust and pollutants, they have the potential to trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as impact your sinuses or bronchial congestion. Cleaning your air ducts regularly ensures you’ll always have a clean air supply to breathe in.

Reducing irritants in the air

Let’s be real here, it isn’t just dust in your air ducts. Harmful contaminants and microorganisms live there too. Irritants such as pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew, and other pollutants can all impact the air you breathe. An annual air duct cleaning helps keep the family members in your home healthier instead of circulating potential problems…over and over again.

Removing smells and odors

Pets, cleaning agents, paint fumes, mildew, food, tobacco use, and more all contribute to stale smells that can settle in over time. A thorough cleaning of the air ducts can help remove odor that is trapped in dust particles, giving you a fresher smelling home.

Improving efficiency

When duct work and registers have a heavy buildup of dust and grime, they are likely not going operate as efficiently. When the air supply is cut off in any capacity, it means your system has to work harder to accomplish the same outcome. A cleaner system is designed to operate as efficiently as possible, giving you a system that operates at peak efficiency and provides cost-effective performance year round.

Spring Cleaning

One thing most of us do not think about often is air purity. It's not a popular topic but it is very important. No one wants their family, especially the elderly or children breathing in harmful spores or bacteria on a daily basis. It is recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 yrs to be safe.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends cleaning your ducts when the following conditions are present:

·  Infestation inside the home or if you see insects or rodents around the duct work.

·  Visible dust or dander being released from the supply registers when air is exiting the vents.

·  If visible mold is present, it would definitely need to be taken care of as soon as possible to avoid the spread of spores and possible health complications.

Take a gander and check the dander inside of your vent register. Black debris and dust build up is a sign your system is excessively soiled.

If your dealing with a dirty duct give SERVPRO a call and we'll clean it up... "Like it never even happened."

Get Your DUCTS In a Row

Recently, studies conducted by multiple health organizations have proven that the quality of air indoors is much lower and is more hazardous to us than the fresh air outside. Now is the time to get your DUCTS in a row! Here are a few benefits of a good duct cleaning:

1.  Heath and Wellness

Dust, mildew, allergens and even mold can collect in your home or office's duct work and can be easily overlooked, out of sight out of mind. However the cleanliness of the duct work and  registers can play a huge art in the occupants health. A thorough duct clean still may not remove ALL pollutants, but it can help prevent build-up form accumulating in the duct work, which then leads to an increase in the quality of air being circulated and over all increased heath.

2. Removes dust

When dust particles have collected in the air ducts and registers the particles will then move with the flow of air throughout your home or business. It is very important to keep up with the duct cleaning to eliminate the dust, which in turn makes cleaning your home and office more effective and efficient.

3. Limit Mechanical Issues

As pollutants collect in the duct work and registers the heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to do the job. However, if you keep up with regular maintenance, such as a duct cleaning every 1 to 5 years, that can help prevent unnecessary maintenance and unwanted expenses.

4. Saves energy

Accumulation of impurities in your the system requires the equipment to run longer when you need to cool/heat your home or office. The longer your system runs, the more likely you are to increase your energy cost.

Do yourself a favor and give SERVPRO a call for all of your duct cleaning needs!
