The Power Of Professional Duct Cleaning: Improving Health And Comfort
Dust, mold and bacteria grow in your home’s ducts, causing serious health problems. Professional duct cleaning can help improve air quality and remove allergens that cause respiratory issues.
Dust-Mite and Mold Protection
Dust mites are microscopic organisms that live in your home. They are present in upholstered furniture, carpeting and bedding. Dust mites feed on dead skin cells and can cause allergic reactions. They thrive in humid environments and can be found in higher concentrations during summer months when windows are kept closed for long periods of time or when the air conditioner is not running properly.
Dust mite allergy symptoms include runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes (allergic rhinitis), itchy throat or mouth (urticaria) as well as skin rash around the neck area (eczema). Symptoms may vary from person to person depending on their sensitivity level towards dust mites; however allergies caused by these tiny creatures can be unpleasant to deal with!
Air Quality Improvement
Air quality is an important aspect of health that can be impacted by the air ducts in your home. In fact, research has shown that indoor air pollution may be more harmful than outdoor pollution, especially for those who suffer from allergies or asthma. This is because indoor pollutants are often more concentrated than outdoors and there are no natural elements to help filter them out.
Air duct cleaning services will remove dust, dirt and other particles from the air ducts in your home which can lead to improved overall health and comfort levels among those living there.
Air filters should also be replaced regularly as part of routine maintenance on heating systems (such as furnaces) or cooling systems (like window units). These filters collect dust and debris over time making them less effective at filtering out pollutants before they enter into rooms throughout homes.
HVAC System Efficiency
Heat, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are designed to be efficient. However, dust, dirt and grime can restrict airflow in your ducts. This causes the system to work harder than it needs to and can lead to higher energy costs.
In addition to reducing the risk of mold growth by improving indoor air quality, professional duct cleaning will improve HVAC system efficiency by removing debris that has clogged up your vents over time.
Duct cleaning is a great investment in your home. In addition to improving health and comfort, it can help save you money on energy bills by improving the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
When ducts are clogged with dirt and debris, air flow is reduced, leading to higher utility costs for both heating and cooling systems. Leaks can also occur when ducts become worn down over time due to poor maintenance or damage caused by rodents or insects that have nested in them (eek!). The result? A leaky home that wastes energy–and lots of it!
Duct cleaning is an investment, but it’s one that will pay off in the long run. With all the benefits listed above, plus many others, it’s no wonder so many people are turning to professional duct cleaning services.
