Did you know the quality of the air in your home can be even worse than the polluted air outside? The list of potential allergens & pathogens living in your ductwork is long, but can include bacteria, kitchen grease, pet dander and more! In order to avoid dust & dander building up, we here at All Season’s recommend getting duct cleaning services every 4-7 years or after a home renovation. Your ducts are in use nearly year-round, so a lot can accumulate in them! Your ducts are in use nearly year-round, so a lot can accumulate in them!
When we go through the duct cleaning process, a rotating brush is inserted through the length of the air ductwork. This brush dislodges any dust, debris, and allergens. On the openings of the ductwork, a powerful vacuum is attached with a large hose that goes to an outside receptacle. This special air duct cleaning equipment can safely extract large quantities of allergens, and dust from your air ducts. During this cleaning process, the registers, vents, heating and cooling coils, and other components of your HVAC system are thoroughly cleaned. The end result is a completely clean air duct system that can circulate hot or cold air without spreading any allergens or bacteria!
If you’re wondering if you should get your ducts cleaned, think about the last time you even had this service. If you can’t remember, it might be a good idea to give us a call! You can also tell if you need it if a family member has allergies they can’t shake, you see or smell mold in the ductwork, or if dust, dander, or other allergens are coming out of the air duct registers when the air is flowing.
If you have any questions, be sure to give us a call! Our Comfort Specialists can walk you through anything you might need clarification on.
