Air Duct Cleaning Removes Allergens & Indoor Pollutions

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.

All air duct cleaning services include the cleaning of the air ducts, returns, trunklines and supply ducts. The normal procedure usually takes 2-3 hours.

Another, and even more important reason to have your air ducts cleaned regularly, is the result that clean air ducts can have on the health of your family. According to the American Lung Association, "Indoor Air Pollution is wide spread. You are more likely to get sick from pollution in your home and office than from pollution in the air outside."

 

Allergens and pollutants can become trapped in your air ducts. As a result, these particles and debris can be distributed throughout your home when the HVAC system is turned on. Especially if one of your family members suffers from allergies to pet dander, pollen, dust mites and their feces or other common allergens, it is important to have your air ducts cleaned to prevent the HVAC system from triggering allergy attacks among your loved ones.

 

Similarly, if your ducts are not properly sealed, moisture can enter the ducts and result in creating a breeding ground for black mold, mildew and other types of microbiological growth. Inhaling mold can cause serious long and short-term health problems for both adults and children.

 

Therefore, if mold is found to be growing in your air ducts, we recommend that you have your air duct system cleaned to remove the mold as well as sealed and sanitized to prevent the regrowth of mold. For more information on this topic please see our section on Duct Sanitization.
