You may be a homeowner who diligently has your air conditioner and furnace checked annually by a professional, but what about the air ducts in your home? What kind of condition are those in? Have you been thinking of having a professional clean your duct work? You may want to consider having them checked and cleaned by a professional to reduce the allergens circulating in your home and to ensure that your ducts are delivering the proper amount of air to areas of your home.
If anyone in your home suffers from seasonal allergies, hay fever, or you have pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander you may be especially concerned with the air quality in your home. These people may benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in your home’s system, thanks to a cleaning by a certified technician. You may also want to call on a professional for a duct cleaning after you’ve had home renovations or remodeling done and perhaps even before you move into a new home.
A study done by Allergy Consumer Review found that duct cleaning reduced airborne particulates by around 75%. According to the EPA, you may want to consider having your ducts professionally cleaned if:
- The ducts may be infested with rodents, insects or other vermin
- Ducts are clogged and have excessive amounts of debris and dust that are released into your home from the supply registers
- There is mold growth visible and present in hard surface ducts or on other parts of your heating and cooling system
