Spring is almost here and it’s the perfect time to think about having your air ducts cleaned as part of your spring cleaning projects. If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in years, or maybe ever, it’s time you think about having this procedure done because it will provide your home with a healthier environment.

Particle Accumulation

Did you know that the average home collects up to 40 pounds of dust, dirt, and allergens each year? More alarming is the fact that 40,000 dust mites can live in just one ounce of dirt.

Getting rid of the dirt is only one of the reasons why you need an air duct cleaning. A thorough air duct cleaning can, not only get rid of those pests, but it also improves the air quality of your home. Cleaning your ducts and air vents make a great deal of sense for any homeowner because it makes your environment safer, cleaner, and healthier for your family.

Whether it’s dust, animal dander, pollen, or any combination of these, air-conditioning ducts can be a breeding ground for unhealthy contaminants. These contaminants can have a direct impact on human health. There are all sorts of allergens and a variety of other particles that lurk within the inner depths of almost any air-conditioning or heating system. Over time, a buildup occurs making the system less efficient and detrimental to your health.

Allergens such as smoke, mold, plant pollen, small oil particles from cooking food, and dust particles move around with the air and the dirt collected in the duct might trigger a blockage. A clean duct will increase heating as well as cooling efficiency, improving the system’s overall performance; thereby significantly cutting heating as well as cleaning costs.

Health Concerns

The allergens and particles that accumulate in your duct system are harmful to your health. After a considerable amount of use, this breeding ground increases the chance that you and your family are living in an unhealthy environment that can make you sick with some mystifying symptoms. These symptoms may include such problems as asthma, bronchitis, rashes, feelings of malaise, headaches, aches and pains, etc.

The Process

So, what should you look for in a professional duct cleaning company? Because sometimes the processes used to actually clean duct systems are overlooked.

One of the best ways to get the most out of your annual air duct cleaning service is to go with a company that specializes in green technologies designed to remove dirt, dust, debris, and mold from air-conditioning and heating systems.

A typical green air duct cleaning process involves an initial site inspection that requires checking the system pressure and inspecting various components of your HVAC system. Eco-friendly companies have their technicians use professional equipment to effectively and safely remove contaminants from your air duct system in a logical and efficient way.

While many companies use harsh, corrosive, and even toxic chemicals, other companies use more environmentally friendly methods and products. Their process includes high powered truck mounted vacuum systems that pull the dust and allergens from your home and into their trucks; thus completely removing everything. They use the latest tools to agitate and dislodge the dirt and debris that’s filling your ducts and suck it out of your house, leaving it clean, disinfected, and fresh.
