Duct cleaning is the process of sweeping or vacuuming out debris, dust, and other particles from the ductwork, grilles, fan motors, and other areas of the HVAC system. Common pollutants in your home may include mold, smoke, carbon monoxide, household cleaning products, and allergens like dander.
Many people benefit from duct cleaning for several reasons:
- Duct cleaning removes the pollutants that blow around your home improves air quality and reduces the need to dust and clean.
- The HVAC system will be less likely to break down, as it won’t be working as hard once the ducts are cleaned.
- Your home’s energy efficiency increases by as much as 40% when very dirty ducts are cleaned. This saves homeowners money on utility bills.
- Removing allergens helps people suffering from allergies.
Duct cleaning should be left to the professionals; ducts can be made from various types of materials which may become damaged if the wrong tools or products are used when cleaning.
