The Importance of Duct Cleaning for Indoor Air Quality

With everything in bloom, you may have noticed that your allergies are starting to irritate you. But did you know that the inside of your home—where you’re supposedly safe from pollen and allergens—could be making it worse? What many homeowners don’t realize is that a dirty HVAC system could be the culprit for repeatedly exposing you to dust, dirt, pollen, allergens, and other debris.

If you’ve never cleaned your air ducts or it’s been a long time, you may want to consider hiring a professional duct cleaning in order to improve your indoor air quality.

The Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning

We all want our homes to be the safest place in the world for our families. It’s why we lock the doors at night and check to make sure everything is in tiptop condition. The air quality inside your home is no different. Failing to clean your air ducts regularly can lead to a large buildup of dust, dirt, and allergens that can keep recycling their way through your HVAC system, making you and your family susceptible to illness, allergies, and a decreased air quality.

Besides improving the air quality inside your home, there are many benefits of duct cleaning, including the following:

  • Eliminate most allergens
  • Eliminate most odors from dust build up
  • Increase the efficiency of air conditioning units
  • Save money on future repairs by increasing the efficiency of your air duct system
  • Potentially lower your energy costs
  • Disinfect the air ducts with an EPA registered antimicrobial
