You might need professional air duct cleaning and not even realize it. HVAC systems typically are out-of-sight and out-of-mind. As long as the heat is working in the winter and air conditioner in the summer, everyone is happy. Just set your desired temperature on the thermostat and enjoy the comfort of your home or office. But is that all there is? What about the system of ductwork circulating the air? This mechanical system runs below floors, through walls, and above ceilings. It is a hidden network of ducting that carries the air we breathe. So does this system require any maintenance or cleaning? Here are four reasons why you should consider professional air duct cleaning.
– Visible mold growth in or around your HVAC air duct system should be a red flag. It is time to take action to avoid a potentially hazardous situation. To verify what you suspect is mold, the substances should be professionally tested. Mold issues with your air ducts are a real possibility especially if your HVAC system is located in the basement or attic. These areas are prone to high humidity and dampness; an environment in which mold can thrive. The combined effort of professional air duct cleaning along with removing the moisture source will drastically reduce the threat and potential hazards of mold.
– You likely don’t want to think about it, but there is a good chance that rodents or insects have been traveling through your air ducts. These dark, secluded and sheltered areas make a perfect safe haven for certain critters. Many vermin carry unwanted bacteria that you just do not want spreading in your home or office. Periodic cleaning of the air duct system removes unwelcomed guests and the mess they leave behind.
– Over time dust and debris can build up in your HVAC system. These contaminants can clog areas of your system or even be released into the home through supply registers. Dust and debris can accumulate faster if you have pets or have gone through a home renovation. Routine cleaning will help with reducing accumulated dust and potentially improve the indoor air quality of the property.
– Everyone is very conscience about home efficiency, especially when it comes to their utilities. Cleaning your air ducts on a routine basis plays a part in maintaining a HVAC system’s efficiency. A smooth running HVAC system is all about having strong air flow. Air flow can be hindered if ducts, coils, fans and motors are inhibited by dirt and debris. Eliminate this issue with professional air duct cleaning.
