Allergies and Duct Cleaning

Are there people in your household who suffer from allergies to airborne pollutants, such as animal dander and pollen? If so, you need to pay special attention to the quality of the air in your home. As the air circulates through the HVAC system, it will start to pick up pollutants that can trigger potentially dangerous allergy attacks. There are many steps you can take to help decrease the allergens in your house: one of them is to schedule regular cleaning for the ductwork.

At Mid-State Air Conditioning and Heating, we recommend that most homes in Ashland, TN have duct cleaning done every 2–3 years. However, if there are allergy and asthma sufferers in your household, you may wish to increase that frequency. Call our indoor air quality professionals today to find out more, as well as to learn about other IAQ solutions such as air filters.

How you can help control indoor allergens

Allergens common inside homes include pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and insect debris. Some of these allergens are heavy and will settle from the air, gathering inside the ductwork of the ventilation system. Airflow will eventually blow them back out into the air of the house, from where they will eventually re-enter the ductwork and continue to accumulate.

You can help to eliminate some of these allergens by keeping up with regular vacuuming in your home. Vacuuming once or twice during a week will remove many of the larger particles that fall from the air. However, this vacuuming does not affect the largest reservoir of allergens: the ones inside the ductwork.

This is why professional duct cleaning is so important. You cannot reach the inside of your ventilation system on your own and remove the accumulation of particles. It takes technicians with training and special power vacuuming equipment to effectively clean out the build-up of debris.

Along with routine duct cleaning, you should also consider installation of an air filtration system. Many allergens are large enough that mechanical filters will do an effective job of stopping them. However, you must consult with a professional to find a filter that will do the job without interfering with airflow from the air conditioner and/or heater that will raise your energy bills.

Mid-State Air Conditioning and Heating provides excellent indoor air quality services such as installing air filtration systems and performing duct cleaning in Ashland, TN. If you have noticed an increase in allergy symptoms in your home, or if you wish to prevent issues in the future for the allergy sufferers in your home, give us a call.
