Air duct cleaning often gets overlooked due to the “out of sight out of mind” syndrome most people suffer from. Cleaning your air ducts significantly improves your air quality and helps reduce allergens and even dust in the home. You might be surprised to find what may be inside your air duct. Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning will share what can and often is inside air ducts and how cleaning your air ducts can improve your air quality and health.
Pests, Skin, Mold, Dust & More in Air Ducts
Most of the dust in our home is actually dried up human skin. Most of the dead skin gets sucked up into your air duct, where through the circulation process, it will redistribute throughout the home. However dead human skin isn’t the only thing found in air ducts. Often pests, such as cockroaches, spiders, and even rodents will make their way into the outer air duct vents. As these pests crawl around your air duct system, they leave feces, hair, and shed skin that cause allergies and other health problems. Another health concern that occurs is when constant water exposure to the air duct system leads to mold and mildew which will grow. Any one of these problems; molds and mildew, pest residue, dust and dead skin has their affects on our everyday living. Indoor allergies and even respiratory problems occur when people have constant exposure to them.
How Often Do My Air Ducts Need to Be Cleaned?
Most wonder how often a residential home should have its air ducts cleaned. It will depend on the home’s living conditions such as dirt exposure, kids and pets. These situations will create more dander, dirt and debris in your home’s air duct systems. In turn, this means you will need to have your air ducts cleaned more often. It is recommended to have the average homes air duct cleaned once a year. Cleaning your air duct system doesn’t just help with air quality but also with air flow efficiency. This will help reduce your power bill. By having the air duct and vents cleaned, the air can flow more freely which improves your HVAC unit’s efficiency.
