Indoor air quality is one vital component of your family’s health. Great indoor air quality starts and ends with your HVAC system, and how much the ductwork carries dust and contaminants. Today’s blog from Superior Air Duct Cleaning highlights five reasons why you should use a residential duct cleaning service.
1. Excessive Dust
Is your home dustier than normal? When you look into a vent in your home, do you notice a lot of dust buildup even though you just cleaned them a few weeks ago? Excessive dust is the most obvious sign you need residential duct cleaning.
2. Better Breathing
Your ducts may have contaminants inside of them, such as mold, fungi, or even bugs or mice. Residential duct cleaning removes these contaminants. After we remove the visible contaminants, we sanitize the inside surfaces to make sure we remove any traces of mold, fungi, or bacteria that can harm your family’s health.
3. No More Smells or Odors
You may notice stale odors that build up in your air ducts. That’s because smells from your home, such as tobacco smoke, pets, household cleaners, paint fumes, and food preparation smells all cling to the dust inside your ducts. Residential duct cleaning gets rid of these odors because our team vacuums out all of the dust.
4. Fewer Allergens
Air ducts don’t just collect dust. They collect pet dander, pollen, dust mites, mold, fungi, mildew, and mold spores. These common allergens can cause sneezing, coughing, congestion, or even asthma and other severe respiratory conditions. If you or someone in your family suffers from an unknown allergy, and you’ve taken every step to decontaminate your home, consider residential duct cleaning.
5. Energy Savings
Your HVAC system is the home appliance that consumes the most energy in your house. Your air conditioning and furnace must perform optimally to save the most on your energy bills. Clogged air ducts force your HVAC system to work harder, which increases your utility bills. Residential duct cleaning can pay for itself over time thanks to reduced energy bills.
