With the holidays behind us, now is the perfect time to make good on your New Year’s resolution to knock down your to-do list. Why not start with something that will improve the air quality in your home or business?
Indoor Air Quality
Contaminants, including pollen, pet dander, dust, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can build up within your ducts, continually being circulated back into the air you breathe. The air in your home or business may seem musty – no matter how often you clean or vacuum – or how much air freshener you use. Having your ducts cleaned will remove these contaminants and immediately improve the air quality.
Mold and Mildew
Just because it’s winter, don’t make the mistake of thinking mold and mildew no longer lurk in your indoor spaces. They only need moisture, warmth, and food to survive.
Food is anything from stale bread to the wood inside your walls. Warmth is available as we turn our thermostats up, and moisture, though scarce in the winter, is available in areas where condensation forms (i.e. outside walls, windowsills).
Running a dehumidifier can help, however, mold spores can be anywhere in your home, including your ductwork, waiting to proliferate. Mold is a serious problem, causing allergy and asthma symptoms as well as subtly destroying your home’s structure.
Having your ducts cleaned on a regular basis (every 3-5 years is recommended) will reduce airborne mold spores as well as dust, viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants. This will allow everyone to breathe easier.
Efficiency and Saving Money
You may have a top-of-the-line HVAC system, but if your ductwork leaks or is coated with a layer of contaminants, you are not getting your money’s worth. Having your ducts cleaned and inspected by an experienced air duct cleaner in Naperville may uncover issues that can be easily remedied.
Additionally, you can save up to $30 a year by cleaning your vents on an annual basis. Clean ducts and vents also increase airflow, reducing malfunctions and overheating which can lead to expensive repairs.
