How Duct Cleaning Can Help Your Family Stay Healthy

All of the air in your home circulates through your heating and cooling system. If this system is dirty, your indoor air will be, too. Here’s how duct cleaning can help to keep your family safe and healthy.

Dust, Allergens, and Pollutants

As air moves through your house, it collects dust, dirt, and pollutants. These particles can stick inside your air ducts and help bacteria and allergens to grow and prosper. This can make your family sick, especially anyone with allergies or asthma.

Insect Bodies and Vermin Droppings

Insects and vermin can get into your ductwork through holes, cracks, and misaligned sections. Breathing the by-products of dead insects and vermin droppings can make people sick. A thorough duct cleaning will clear these problems out.

Mold Infestation

Mold can grow in your air ducts due to moisture and dust combining in them. If you smell moldy or musty smells when you turn on your heating and cooling system, it’s likely you have a mold infestation growing in the air ducts. Mold is very unhealthy to breathe and needs to be taken care of as soon as possible.

How Professional Duct Cleaning Helps

A technician can clean your ductwork, which removes dust, dirt, allergens, and other particles. It also removes things like pet dander and cigarette smoke residue that can remain in the ducts from previous owners. This improves your home’s indoor air quality and makes breathing healthier and easier.

A heating and cooling company has all of the proper tools designed to resolve issues with your ductwork. They can thoroughly clean the ducts and dispose of what’s in them so that your family is no longer breathing it in.
