Indoor air pollution has become a growing concern in both homes and businesses – so much so that more companies are marketing solutions for improving air quality. By now, you’ve probably seen ads, flyers, direct mail or newspaper inserts for air duct cleaning.
Air duct cleaning is the cleaning of forced-air heating and cooling system components. That includes the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers; heating and cooling coils; drip pans; the fan motor and housing; and the air-handling unit and housing.
Without proper air duct cleaning, a forced-air system can become contaminated with debris such as dust and pollen particles, dust mites and pet dander. The presence of moisture can further lead to microbial growth such as mold and spores; these microbes may then be released into home or office spaces, where they are breathed.
How Are Air Ducts Cleaned?
A professional duct cleaning will include clearing the ducts with powerful high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) equipment with built-in filters. A separate cleaning using equipment with a HEPA filter will then follow to clear the air of any particulates introduced or loosened during the primary cleaning.
By having your ducts cleaned, you contribute to:
- helping to remove particles and airborne contaminants you may have been breathing
- decreasing dust that settles throughout your home
- reducing obstructions to airflow, which also helps lower the system’s energy draw
- ensuring a more comfortable indoor atmosphere
