Before Turning on the Heat, Have Your Air Ducts Professionally Cleaned

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , .

A home’s ductwork is a catch-all for dirt, dust and pet dander.  This debris collects on the air ducts, recirculating through the house when the heat is turned on.  These tiny particles in the air contribute to poor indoor air quality, causing symptoms that range from itchy eyes and a runny nose to more severe respiratory infections.  Professional cleaning of the home’s ductwork can make a big difference, eliminating the majority of this dirt and dust from circulating through the air of the home.

Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

As the weather cools, we will begin to spend more and more time indoors with the home shut-up to keep the heat in.  This makes those living in the home vulnerable to the indoor air quality, particularly if there is a large amount of dust and allergens circulating through the air.  Indoor air quality (IAQ) is affected by the levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air.  These VOCs can originate from many sources, from chemical in cleaners to dust and shedding skin cells.  The higher the indoor air quality rating, the poorer the quality of air.

Poor indoor air quality can cause health problems for everyone living in the home.  This can range from mild allergy symptoms such as a chronic runny nose to more serious respiratory infections.  Poor indoor air quality can be especially problematic for those that already have allergies, respiratory illnesses or a compromised immune system.

Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken to improve the indoor air quality, keeping those living in the home healthier.

Professional Ductwork Cleaning Removes Contaminants, Improving Air Quality in the Home

One big contributor to poor air quality is dirt and other allergens circulating throughout the home.  These particles settle into the home’s ductwork.  When the system is turned on, particularly after a long period of time without use, these tiny particles are circulated throughout the air of the home.  Dirt and dust in the air are then breathed in by those living at the home, which can have a negative impact on your family’s health.

After having the heat shut off during the late spring and summer months, many homeowners find that turning on the heat for the first time can greatly affect their home’s air quality.  During these months of non-use dirt and dust have been collecting on the home’s ductwork.  When the heat is turned on, the hot air blows these contaminants throughout the home, continuing to recirculate over time as the heating system is used.

Having the home’s ductwork cleaned prior to switching on the heat for the season can make a big difference.  A professional can remove these contaminants from the air ducts, eliminating this debris from circulating through the air.

The team at Soil-Away offers professional ductwork cleaning to keep your home’s air free of contaminants and your family healthy.  Contact the Soil-Away team at 603-641-6555 to schedule a professional cleaning of your home’s ductwork.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
