The Importance of Duct Cleaning for Your Indoor Air Quality

Cooler weather means more time inside with family and friends. But it also means prime time for germs and allergies.Aside from washing your hands and eating healthy, there is another unexpected way to keep your family safe from getting sick — duct cleaning. Fall and winter is prime-time for allergies, colds, and sinus infections. One way to get ahead of the germ game is to keep your indoor air clean.

Duct cleaning can create a cleaner living area, reduce allergens, and even help your heating equipment run smoother in the colder months. Want to learn more about the benefits of duct cleaning? Let’s first start with the quality of your air.

The EPA reports indoor air pollutants may be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. This can worsen during the colder months when the windows are kept closed. But that brings us to the first reason you need duct cleaning:

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Professional duct cleaning reduces the amount of dust, pollen, dirt, and other particles circulating through your home. You see as the dust on your furniture, bedding, or when your cleaning. Dusting can only help alleviate  the symptoms, why not treat the source with duct cleaning?

By removing the excess dust in your home, duct cleaning also helps remove allergens and irritants. These include pet dander, bacteria, and pollen to name a few. If anyone in your family suffers from asthma, allergies, or other upper respiratory problems, they could be extra sensitive to these pollutants. Regular duct cleaning can improve your family’s quality of life and overall indoor air quality.

Improves Your HVAC Efficiency

Getting duct cleaning done not only helps your family breathe easier, but can help your heating and cooling equipment run better.

Dirty vents and registers can make your furnace and air conditioner work harder because of the restricted air flow. The harder your system works, the sooner wear and tear will happen. Good airflow is important to keep everything flowing smoothly.

 

Duct cleaning can help your HVAC equipment lifespan and overall efficiency.
