Keeping your home clean can be a struggle sometimes. Whether it’s keeping it clean for your own sanity or cleaning up before guests arrive, cleanliness is important for many health reasons. The same can be said for having duct cleaning completed. After all, duct systems come in contact with all of the air that gets sent through our homes, possibly providing less than clean air if they aren’t appropriately, and routinely, cleaned.
The beneficial thing about duct cleaning is that it’s a simple task to take on and is almost a no-brainer to add on to your next heating and cooling check up.
Here’s the down and dirty about duct systems to help make it a little simpler to understand:
- Close to all of the air in your home comes through the ducts as part of your heating and cooling system. Based on the sheer volume of air those ducts deal with, they can get filthy with microbes, mildew and bacteria, as well as dust and dirt.
- Duct cleaning includes the cleaning of a variety of system components, from the air supply and return air ducts, to the registers, grilles and diffusers. It takes care of the entire duct system.
- As time passes, it might become necessary to also have duct sealing done, as ductwork can separate and cause air leaks. Those air leaks could lead to a great deal of money wasted because your system is having to work hard only to heat and cool attics and interior walls. Plus, those leaks can also lead to impurities being sent throughout your home.
