Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Austin
It’s time to consider cleaning the air ducts in your Austin home or business. According to the EPA, we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors. The air inside some residences and places of business may be more polluted than the air outside. Make sure that’s not you!
Check for signs of contamination
You can easily check air-return grills and ceiling vents yourself. Look out for signs of mold growth or excessive dust and debris. Does anything come out of the vents when the system is running? If so, the air ducts are likely in need of a thorough cleaning. If anyone in your household or office is experiencing allergies or unexplained symptoms or illnesses, contaminated air could be the culprit.
Call a service provider for a more thorough examination
Many parts of your heating and cooling system are likely not easily accessible to you. Get the help of a duct-cleaning service provider to check your system for you. They will be able to notice anything more sinister, such as insect or vermin infestation, or mold growth you weren’t able to spot yourself.
They also have access to products that will help maintain clean air ducts. A biocide kills bacteria and mold, and prevents future mold growth. A sealant prevents dust in the air ducts from being released through the vents. If you are afraid of adverse reactions to either chemical, discuss your options with your service provider.
Lastly, they can clean heating and cooling components to help your system run more efficiently. Cleaning of heating and cooling coils and drain pans, regular filter changes, and inspections of heating equipment should be part of your annual home or office maintenance routine.
