Benefits of Professional Air Duct Cleaning

Your air ducts serve a very important function in your home. They’re responsible for circulating air from your heating & cooling system throughout each room, allowing for consistent comfort. 

This isn’t something done intermittently. All of the air in your home gets circulated throughout your air ducts multiple times a day! This is the air you and your family are constantly breathing in and out. You want it to be as clean as possible, especially if anyone in your household suffers from asthma or allergies. 

This is where professional air duct cleaning can help. Air duct cleaning removes the dust and contaminants within your ductwork, from the supply and return air ducts to the registers in each room. Professional duct cleaners use powerful vacuums that can rid all the dust, dirt, and grim from every nook and cranny of your duct work, preventing respiratory irritants from re-circulating throughout your home. 

Here are few other reasons why you should have your air ducts cleaned by a professional: 

Create a Cleaner Home

Professional air duct cleaning significantly reduces the dust that would otherwise be circulating and floating throughout your home. With a thorough professional cleaning, you can eliminate dust and maintain a more welcoming hygienic home that your household and guests can enjoy.

Reduce Allergens & Irritants

Air duct cleaning doesn’t just tackle dust, it can also help eliminate harmful contaminants and micro-organisms, including mold, mildew, pollen, bacteria, and pet dander. People in your household who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues are especially prone to be sensitive to these nasty particulates. Regular professional air duct cleaning can promote healthier living and make it so that your HVAC system isn’t just re-circulating the same dirty air throughout your home where it’s likely to settle on your furniture and bedding, causing problems for those with sensitivities to allergens and irritants.

Breathe Easier

Even if no one in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems, you can still benefit from cleaner air. Not only is it easier to breathe, it can also help protect your respiratory health. Even healthy lungs are susceptible to irritation from dust and pollutants. Air duct cleaning can create a more comfortable environment and improve your overall well-being. Plus, given the choice between clean or dirty air, which would you rather be breathing in? 

Remove Unpleasant Smells & Lingering Odors 

Whether you have pets, a household member who’s a frequent smoker, regularly use strong cleaning chemicals, or you occasionally burn dinner, you may have stale air stinking up your air ducts. Every time your HVAC system is running, all of these smells and odors get sucked through your air ducts and will repeatedly flow throughout your home. Even the accumulation of dirt and dust over the years can lead to a musty smell. A thorough professional cleaning of your air ducts will remove these particles, leading to a fresher smelling home. 

Improve Air Flow & HVAC Efficiency 

If your ductwork has a heavy buildup of dirt and grime, that can lead to the restriction of air flow from your furnace or A/C. Not only does this mean your HVAC system has to work harder to heat or cool your home, it also means you’re putting undue stress on your system and possibly racking up higher energy bills. A clean system operates more efficiently, maintaining your home comfort at a lower cost.
