Why Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned

Why Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned

Cough, sniffle, sneeze – it might might not be a cold virus that’s giving you trouble. It could be your air ducts. The air ducts within your home are responsible for the delivery of the warmed or conditioned air produced by the heating and cooling system. Your home could contain several hundred linear feet of air ducts, and within those ducts, dust, pollen, dander, and other contaminants lurk, waiting to contaminate the air that you breathe. Professional air duct cleaning can eliminate these contaminants so that you can enjoy a better quality of life.

What’s Lurking Inside Air Ducts

All sorts of contaminants make their way into the air ducts of your home. Some of the most common particulates in the air ducts include:

  • Dander from household pets.
  • Pollen from indoor and outdoor plants.
  • Dust and dust mites.
  • Mold spores.
  • Bacteria and viruses.
  • The waste from insects and past or current rodent infestations.

How Air Duct Cleaning Affects Indoor Air Quality

Each time the air conditioner or heating system turns on, air is blown through the ducts. With each cycle of the system, some of the contaminants from the air ducts are picked up by the stream of moving air and blown into the living areas of your home. Professional duct cleaning services make use of powerful vacuums to extract the contaminants from the air ducts. After the ducts are professionally cleaned and sanitized, the indoor air quality of the home improves.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning

Even though you don’t see the inside of your home’s air ducts, there are many benefits to having them professionally cleaned. After your ducts are cleaned, you may notice:

  • Increased energy efficiency of the heating and cooling system. The increased surface area and volume of the air ducts makes it easier for the heated or conditioned air to pass through the ducts and into the living spaces of the home.
  • Greater level of indoor comfort. Clean, wide open ducts allows the home to be warmed or cooled more evenly.
  • Lower incidence of allergies, respiratory illnesses, and asthma flare-ups.

To enjoy a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment, your Hilton Head, SC, home’s air ducts should be professionally cleaned every 3 to 5 years. If there are several furry pets in your home, or if there’s a smoker or someone with allergies, you might consider cleaning the air ducts every 2 to 3 years to remove the built up contaminants.
