Improve Indoor Air Quality with Duct Cleaning
Do you know that the best way to improve indoor air quality is to clean or service your ventilation system regularly? Many people fail to clean or service their HVAC system after installation. The only time they remember is when it develops a fault.
Allergens such as pollen, dust, dander, mites, and pet hair can find their way to the ductwork. Bacterias, viruses, and other microbes can also be sheltered in ducts.
Cleaning air ducts helps reduce the number of airborne pollutants circulating in your home and improves your indoor air quality. Pollens and molds can settle in your ductwork and get circulated inside your rooms when your air conditioner or heater is turned on. When inhaled, air pollutants can cause breathing disorders such as asthma and allergies.
There are some basic things you can do yourself in keeping your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC) clean frequently. Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean not only extends the life-span of the equipment but also enables it to operate at peak condition.
HVAC systems should be serviced every 6 months and build up specks of dirt removed for proper circulation. A dirty duct will circulate contaminated air such as mold and dust throughout your home.
As duct cleaning helps get rid of contaminants in your HVAC system, you can further improve your indoor air quality by using air purifiers, air cleaners, and ventilators to treat the air.
