You may already be thinking; ‘of course my HVAC affects my home, it controls the temperature!’ Well, yes, this is obviously true - but, we’re not talking about the temperature of your home - we’re referring to its cleanliness. Many (or most) homeowners don’t know that the HVAC system can affect the allergen level around the house - and very easily, too. From mold growth to rodent droppings, dust collection and pet dander - without proper cleaning and maintenance, all of these things can be taken care of. Let’s take a closer look…
No matter where you live, allergies are all around outdoors. Even though you may change your air filters indoors often, allergens and other pollutants can be distributed throughout your home from the air ducts themselves. As we previously mentioned, all kinds of particles collect in and around those ducts - that’s why it’s extremely important to keep them exceptionally clean. Especially if you’ve been abnormally suffering from allergies lately!
One of the biggest mistakes made with air ducts is improper cleaning. In some cases, homeowners may try to clean the air ducts (even just as a “temporary fix”) and you can hardly tell the difference. That’s because the entire ductwork needs to be inspected and cleaned, too!
