Keeping your home clean can be difficult sometimes. Whether it’s keeping it clean for your own sanity or cleaning up before guests show up, cleanliness is important for many health reasons. The same can be said for having duct cleaning done. After all, duct systems handle all of the air that gets sent through our homes, potentially leaving you with less than clean air if they aren’t properly, and routinely, cleaned.
The great thing about duct cleaning is that it’s a basic task to take on and is almost a no-brainer to add on to your next heating and cooling tune-up.
Here’s the down and dirty about duct systems to help make it a little more friendly to understand:
- Nearly all of the air in your home comes through the ducts as part of your heating and cooling system. Due to the sheer volume of air those ducts deal with, they can get inundated with microbes, mildew and bacteria, as well as dust and dirt.
- Duct cleaning includes the cleaning of a host of system components, from the air supply and return air ducts, to the registers, grilles and diffusers. It handles the whole duct system.
- As time goes by, it might become necessary to also have duct sealing performed, 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 gaps can also lead to dust being sent through your home.
