Air Duct Cleaning
Do you know how clean the air in your home is? With indoor air quality becoming a growing concern, most homeowners are still not aware of the level of pollution inside of their home.
The Environmental Protection Agency has ranked poor indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks for public health multiple years in a row. Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful for you and your family to breathe. Each time your heating and cooling system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen and bacteria throughout the air inside your home.
Each time your HVAC system operates, particulates that are in your home’s air may be sucked into the ducts. These particulates include pet dander, dust, dirt, hair, bacteria and other materials. While particles that land on your floors and hard surfaces may be removed through regular cleaning efforts, the particles that enter the HVAC system will continue to circulate throughout the home. These particles increase in number over time. They may become caked onto the HVAC equipment, and they will also accumulate in the air ducts.
Some of the matter in your air ducts will remain stuck to the sides, so the passageway in your air ducts becomes increasingly narrow. Your HVAC system must work harder to circulate climate-controlled air throughout the home. This means your HVAC system is enduring unnecessary wear and tear, which could lead to expensive repair issues or the need to replace the equipment prematurely. Dirty air vents may also contribute to higher energy bills because the system must work harder than necessary.

After an Air Duct Cleaning
Other matter that sticks to the interior of your air ducts may become dislodged, and this matter recirculates throughout the home. As a result, indoor air quality declines over time. You may notice that respiratory symptoms, such as those related to indoor allergies, asthma and other conditions, worsen. The solution is to schedule air duct cleaning service with Williams Duct Cleaning.
If you have removed your air vent and have peeked inside your air ducts, you may be dismayed by the filth that you see. Some people are inclined to grab a vacuum and to remove the debris that they can reach. Keep in mind that your air ducts weave throughout your walls and ceiling. It is not possible to clean the entire length of your ducts on your own. In addition, the material that air ducts are made out of is easily damaged. Only a professional should clean your air ducts.
