Air Duct Cleaning In Lafayette, West Lafayette, Kokomo, IN, And Surrounding Areas
What Is Air Duct Cleaning?
Air duct cleaning refers to the removal of contaminants within your home’s air duct system. This includes the supply and return registers in each room and the air ducts that connect them to your HVAC system. We use a powerful HEPA filtration vacuum system to remove debris from the air ducts. At the same time our system uses compressed air, whips and other attachments to loosen any debris that may be adhered to your duct walls. Contact us today!
Why Is It Important?
Air Duct cleaning is something that often gets overlooked when suffering from poor indoor air quality. The air ducts circulate the air from your heating and cooling system in and out of every room in your home multiple times each day. The same air that is circulating your home is the same air that you and your family breathe. When contaminants, allergens, and irritants are present in your duct system, it can have negative impacts on your health.
There are many benefits to having you air ducts professionally cleaned. The top reasons are listed below:
- A Cleaner Home: Having your air ducts cleaned greatly reduces the amount of dust and debris that would otherwise be circulating your home. These particles land on your furniture, your bedding, your flooring and just about everywhere you can imagine. Homeowners often find the need to dust greatly reduced after having their ducts cleaned.
- Reduces Allergens and Irritants: Dust is the first thing we think of when the topic of air duct cleaning comes up. What most people don’t think about are the harmful contaminants and microorganisms. These typically include pet dander, pollen, bacteria, mildew, mold spores, dust, and other contaminants. Homeowners with allergies, asthma, COPD, and other respiratory issues may be very sensitive to these airborne particles.
- Reduce Unpleasant Household Odors: There can be many contributing factors when you have a musty smell coming from your duct system. Pets, cleaning products, paint fumes, dust, dirt, mold and even tobacco smoke all contribute to an unpleasant odor. A thorough cleaning of your duct system will remove the contaminants from your ducts and eliminate the constant circulation throughout your home.
- Improved Airflow: It is uncommon for the air ducts to be clogged or dirty enough to reduce the airflow, but it can happen. Registers can have heavy build-up on them as well and can potentially reduce the airflow throughout your duct system. Having the air ducts and registers cleaned can increase the airflow and allow your HVAC system to operate at maximum efficiency.
How Often Should You Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned?
There is no one size fits all answer to this question. Every home has different contributing factors, and every homeowner is affected differently. Typically, we recommend having your air ducts cleaned every 10-15 years. If mold is visible, signs of pests or you’re experiencing excessive amounts of dust, it might be a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned. In addition, homeowners that have respiratory issues might want to consider having their air ducts cleaned more frequently to avoid any potential health risks.
