We see it happen all the time, one of the most important parts of the home gets ignored. But, obviously, homeowners don’t know they’re one of the most important parts of the house or they wouldn’t be ignored. However, your air flow comes out of them - causing dirty particles to be blown all over your home when they’re not properly cleaned. Yes, you guessed it! We’re talking about your air ducts.
How do you clean them?
Know What’s Right and What’s Wrong
As with anything else, there is a right way and a wrong way to clean your air ducts. Unfortunately, if done the ‘wrong’ way, you may see all of that dust and pet dander come right back within minutes. But, if done the ‘right’ way, you and your house could benefit in a multitude of ways.
So, what’s right and what’s wrong?
Cleaning your air ducts doesn’t mean that you can simply wipe down the outside of the supply registers and all it a day. It’s actually much more involved than that. Cleaning the right way calls for a thorough inspection of the duct work, ensuring that there aren’t any other issues besides the allergens and dust circulating in your home. In some cases, you could be dealing with mold growth or even rodent droppings - so it’s important to have your ducts professionally inspected and cleaned the right way.
Not only does a thorough air duct cleaning help with dust, debris, and other allergens around the home, but it also tremendously helps to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. The less difficult it is for your HVAC system to work, the longer it can last!
With your freshly cleaned air ducts, you can enjoy a reduced amount of allergens around the home. But, let’s not forget there can be a right and wrong way to clean them - so it’s definitely a job better left to the professionals.
