When is the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? If the answer is never or several years ago, your air ducts are probably filthy. Over time, dirt, debris, dust and allergens from outside enter your home or business through the doors and windows. When your HVAC system activates, it pushes those particles through your ducts, where some of it collects. The rest of it becomes airborne where it can be inhaled and/or land on furniture and flat surfaces. This can result in the need to dust and clean your home or business more often, and it can lead to an increase in allergy symptoms and breathing difficulties in individuals with asthma or other chronic health problems. Here at AirDuct Clean in Michigan, we provide high-quality air duct cleaning services so that you can improve your indoor air quality.
How air duct cleaning works
Air duct cleaning removes all the filth and debris from your ducts, which helps improve your indoor air quality and increases the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system. We start the process by inspecting the insides of your air ducts to see how much, dirt, debris and filth is inside. Next, we use duct cleaning brushes to scrape and loosen all the caked on debris in your ducts. Then, we attach special vacuum lines to your ducts that suck all the filth, dirt, debris and allergens from your duct work. Lastly, we inspect your ducts to make sure they are completely clean. When we finish, you should notice an increase in your HVAC system's efficiency and a decrease in the amount of dust you find on your furniture and floors.
Why you need air duct cleaning
Every home and business acquires dust, dirt, pollen and other air pollutants as people enter and exit the buildings. In fact, it is estimated that a standard sized home creates up to 40 pounds of dust annually. If food or organic matter is accidentally dropped into the ducts, they can cause sections of your ducts to become moldy. The combination of dust, mold spores, pollen and other allergens can increase indoor allergy symptoms and breathing difficulties in individuals who are sensitive to dust and mold.
One of the best ways to remove the indoor pollutants from your home or business is to schedule regular duct cleaning services. By having your ducts cleaned annually, you are reducing the amount of dust and other particles that circulate through your home or business, which provides many benefits. The biggest benefit is the improvement in your indoor air quality.
Another benefit involves the operation of your HVAC unit. When your air is clean, your filter does not have to trap as many particles, which extends its useful life and prevents filter clogs that could potentially reduce the amount of air that flows into your HVAC system. When your HVAC system doesn't receive enough airflow, it has to work harder to heat or cool the building, which results in the need to make frequent repairs. Thankfully, you can reduce indoor allergy symptoms, improve your HVAC system's efficiency and reduce your energy bills by having your ducts regularly cleaned by our professional and experienced HVAC technicians.
