How Duct Cleaning Will Lead to a Healthier Indoors

Whether you know it or not, your indoor air quality is probably far below what it could be. The average home is full of all sorts of contaminants and pollutants. While most can’t do much more than cause the occasional cough or sneeze, there are some that can most certainly cause health issues in people who are exposed to them. Read on to find out where these contaminants come from, and how you can get rid of them.

Airborne Contaminants

Among the microscopic pollutants floating around in your air supply are dust, pollen, insect dander, pet dander, viruses, bacteria, and possibly even mold. Some of these contaminants are inescapable, like dust. No matter what you do, there will always be some level of dust present in your air. That’s no reason to let it build up until it becomes a problem, though. Other contaminants, like mold and insect dander, can absolutely be mitigated if you choose the right solution. That solution is duct cleaning.

Duct Cleaning

Your ductwork serves as your home’s lungs, allowing air to circulate to all corners of the house. Because of this, your ducts also provide a means of transportation for all those contaminants in your air supply. Every time you turn on your forced air system, whether it’s heating or air conditioning, all those contaminants get blown all over the house. This is especially problematic regarding viruses and bacteria, which can infect people throughout the home with ease.

Duct cleaning treats these contaminants by addressing their method of circulation. The ducts are either carefully vacuumed or brushed clean of any particulates that might be clinging to their walls. Chemical solutions may also be applied to disinfect the ducts. Any areas with excessive moisture are found and addressed, to prevent the growth of mold that might impact your air quality. Finally, any leaks that are found in the ducts can be sealed up to prevent heat loss.
