With the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimating that most people spend between 60 and 90 percent of their time indoors, the need for fresh, clean air is very clear. Understanding the need and meeting it, however, can be two very different things. Fortunately, there are many things people can do to enjoy fresher and healthier air inside their homes: from developing a good cleaning routine to using air purifiers, from ventilating a house to replacing vacuum filters. One very important task not to be overlooked is the air conditioning and heating system cleaning.
Concealed behind your walls and mostly ignored, your air ducts serve as vital pathways that deliver warm and cool air throughout your home during the year. While they may be unseen, your air ducts are working nearly year round, whenever you have your air conditioner or heater running. Attached to your HVAC system, air ducts transfer the air from these systems throughout your home. What many homeowners don’t realize, though, is that your air ducts, in nearly constant use, continually accumulate dust, grime, debris, pet dander and allergens throughout the year. In fact, according to National Air Duct Cleaners Association the average American home produces 40 pounds of dust per year!
While vacuuming and dusting may be a part of your weekly cleaning routine, these basic methods invariably leave dust and dirt behind, and no amount of regular cleaning can capture every dust mite your home produces. As such, much of that dust and dirt ends up in your air ducts. What’s worse is that this same dust continues to recirculate over and over again, with the dust continuing to accumulate inside your ducts even while it’s redistributed throughout your home.
This constant cycle of dust accumulation and redistribution can have serious effects on your home’s cleanliness and your family’s health. Constantly re-circulated allergens will irritate allergy sufferers throughout the year, even when their allergies are not in season. Additionally, people with compromised respiratory systems may experience difficulty breathing in homes with high dust quantities. With Air Duct Cleaning, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your air ducts, which can lead to a better indoor air quality throughout your home.
Air duct cleaning involves a rather meticulous process to clean out dust, dirt and debris from a central heating and cooling system. Armed with powerful, modern equipment and advanced technical knowledge, our professionals ensure that the job is well done every time.
