Why You Should Have Duct Cleaning Done in Your Home
Keeping your home clean can be tough sometimes. Whether it’s keeping it clean for your own sake or cleaning up before guests show up, cleanliness is important for a variety of health reasons. The same can be said for having duct cleaning performed. After all, duct systems touch all of the air that gets sent in to our homes, potentially offering you less than clean air if they aren’t correctly, and routinely, cleaned.
The great thing about duct cleaning is that it’s a basic task to take on and is almost a no-brainer to add on to your scheduled heating and cooling tune-up.
Here’s the down and dirty about duct systems to help make it a little easier to understand:
- Almost all of the air in your home comes through the ducts as part of your heating and cooling system. Due to the sheer volume of air those ducts deal with, they can get dirty with microbes, mildew and bacteria, as well as dust and dirt.
- Duct cleaning includes the cleaning of a number of system components, from the air supply and return air ducts, to the registers, grilles and diffusers. It handles the entire duct system.
- As time goes by, it could become necessary to also have duct sealing completed, as ductwork can separate and cause air leaks. Those air leaks could lead to a great deal of money wasted because your system is having to work more to heat and cool attics and interior walls. Plus, those leaks can also lead to contaminants being sent through your home.
