The Benefits of Duct Cleaning

Before you’re convinced that duct cleaning is a necessary service, we need to talk about some of the major benefits that come from it. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Let’s talk about a few reasons why you should invest in duct cleaning today.

  • It keeps things fresh and clean. This is the first and most important benefit of duct cleaning. It removes all sorts of contaminants from your ducts, like dust, debris, pet dander, hair, and more!
  • It removes odors. Sometimes, depending on the humidity of your home, mold can grow in your air ducts which produces a foul odor. Duct cleaning can help eliminate that odor and keep your ducts sparkly clean.
  • It keeps your ducts in good shape. Your air ducts expand and contract a lot when they’re being used to transport conditioned or heated air. This allows for tiny, microscopic contaminants as well as water droplets to get into small gaps and crevices in your air ducts. As the ducts expand and contract, they will break apart and start to leak. Clean ducts can help mitigate this problem.
  • It improves HVAC efficiency. Your air conditioner is going to have to send air through layers and layers of dust for it to reach your home without proper duct cleaning services. When things are cleaner, your air filter clogs up less and your system will run more efficiently!

What’s in My Ducts?

That’s a good question! Depending on the state of your home or where you live, there can be different contaminants in your air ducts. Everyone usually has dust, dander, or hair in their ducts. Sometimes, you can even find bacteria, viruses, and mold growing in there as well.
