Should Duct Cleaning Be Part Of Your Spring Cleaning Process?
Winter is slowly fading into spring. The nights are getting shorter. The temperatures are starting to rise. That means we’re getting closer to turning off our furnaces and opening up the windows to let the fresh breezes flow in.
Have you ever considered what is in the air you’re breathing inside your home? After everything has been sealed up tight for months, with nothing but your furnace pumping in heat, how fresh is the air? Allergens and other contaminants have been building up and cycling throughout your house, courtesy of your furnace and your ductwork. And many things could be lurking inside, including:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Dead skin cells
- Biological growth
- Building materials, including sheetrock and dust
- Concrete or wood dust
That’s a lot of stuff!
You’d never leave that much debris lying around on your floors, or allow it to build up in the corners of your rooms. Why is it building up in your ducts?
Duct cleaning is a simple procedure. In fact, there’s very little you need to do other than pick up the phone and give us a call. As a trusted professional, we’ll do the rest. That includes moving small furniture for better access to your registers, covering your furniture to prevent it and keep it clean, wiping down your registers after we’re through, cleaning up any debris, and returning your home to its original position.
For the average home, we’ll be done in just a few hours.
In addition to having cleaner indoor air, cleaning your ducts can also improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment. Clean ducts can prevent contaminants from getting into your furnace or air conditioner. It can also prevent potential clogs that will make the equipment work harder.
If you’ve never had your ducts cleaned, now may be the time. It can improve your air quality, and possibly save you money on your energy bills over time.
