Have you thought about having the air ducts in your home professionally cleaned, but aren’t sure exactly what that means or whether it’s even necessary? At Duct Cleaning, we often get certain questions from potential clients throughout Maryland and Northern Virginia, and perhaps you have the same ones running through your mind. Let us discuss some of these most common questions related to air duct cleaning to help set the record straight, and provide you with the facts you need to make your decision.
What Is Air Duct Cleaning?
Professional air duct cleaning is a process used to remove buildup within your ductwork. These pathways can collect dust, carcinogens, and other allergens over time, and need to be cleaned out to improve the quality of the air you breathe. Our thorough cleanings will clear the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home with our specialized air whips and HEPA filtered vacuums.
How Often Should Your Air Ducts Be Cleaned?
At Atlantic Duct Cleaning, we typically suggest cleaning your home’s air ducts every five to seven years. However, homeowners with children, pets, respiratory issues, or a compromised immune system may want to have their HVAC duct system cleaned more frequently. A system with better filtration will need to be cleaned less frequently.
Why Should You Invest in Residential or Commercial Air Duct Cleaning?
According to The American Lung Association, most people spend almost 90% of their time indoors. Air duct cleaning improves the quality of the air inside your home or business by removing accumulated dust, cobwebs, rodent droppings, and other debris to ease the airflow and increase the efficiency of your system. A proper air duct cleaning will leave you with cleaner air and less dust in your home or commercial property, providing relief from symptoms related to poor air quality.
