Why Does My System Need Cleaning?
How Do I Know My System Needs to Be Cleaned?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, then it may be time to consider having your air duct system professionally cleaned! Air ducts are the lungs of a building, and over time, dirt, dust, debris, tobacco smoke, animal hair/dander, and other contaminants can accumulate inside the ductwork. Dirty ducts can also become an ideal breeding ground for pollen, mold spores, mildew, bacteria, and other potentially harmful bio-pollutants, which can pass easily through the furnace filter and into the air you and your family or coworkers breathe.
When Should Duct Work Be Cleaned?
- When anyone in the house has a breathing problem such as asthma, allergies, or emphysema
- If there are indoor pets
- Before moving into a new home
- When installing a new furnace
- After any renovation work has been completed
- Whenever dust appears on walls, floors, ceiling fixtures, carpets, or drapes or around registers.
