To Clean or Not to Clean?
Knowing when to have air ducts cleaned is a crucial household responsibility. This simple yet fundamental effort will clean and clear out dust, mould, musty odor, and allergens. It will also increase heating and cooling system efficiency and improve air quality in the home. Don’t sit at home questioning whether or not air duct cleaning is needed. Simply follow these suggestions and know when you need to call the experts:
Anyone feeling sick?
Has anyone in the household suddenly felt ill? Has anyone experienced sudden allergies? These may be signs that a cleaning of the air ducts is needed. If illness or allergies are unexplained or uncommon, immediate attention to air ducts may prove to be beneficial for air quality in the home and help relieve some of the discomforts being experienced by those who live there.
A visual inspection can be done by the homeowner to determine if a cleaning of the air ducts is necessary. If there is visible mould growth on the ducts, call a professional to clean them. An experienced company can determine if the substance is mould or simply a substance that appears to be mould. If dust or debris is being circulated in the home through the vents, professional cleaning is absolutely necessary. Also, infestation of insects or rodents should be handled by a professional. It’s not a “DIY” job.
Trust a Professional
Proper duct cleaning is a must. If a fly-by-night company claims they did your job properly, you have no recourse when you discover that the air quality hasn’t improved. Untrained duct cleaners can also do damage to the duct work or the heating and cooling units, leaving you with a still-unclean home and costly repairs. Before seeking a quick fix, choose a reputable company that has a track record and strong customer reviews.
