With the change of seasons, comes the changing of allergens in the air. And, when allergens are stirred up and affecting you more than normal, it’s easy to want to coop up inside and “rest.” While indoor air shields us from exposure to the elements, we are still exposed to indoor air pollutants -- especially if you haven’t cleaned your air ducts in a while!
If you have a major problem with your ductwork, such as a leak, you'll need to contact a professional as soon as possible. Leaky ducts can suck in dust, dirt, allergens, and other nasty materials from areas like basements, crawlspaces, or attics. In these situations, we urge you to simply call in the professionals! This is a job that requires very specific equipment (high powered vacuums, video equipment, etc) and a precise, well-trained method of breaking up the dirt and dust inside your ductwork.
Leaky ducts or other problems aside, air ducts function most efficiently and effectively when they’re regularly maintained. However, it can be an extremely difficult job because of many hard-to-reach places and lack of equipment. Dusting off the air vents is part of the job, but if you’re having to dust them frequently -- it’s probably time to get inside the ducts for a thorough clean.
No matter what shape your ducts are in, calling in the professionals will ensure that your ducts aren’t circulating air full of allergen particles and other dust or dirt. Regular maintenance will also prevent further damage from occurring -- saving you time, energy, and money!
