We spend most of our time inside (either at home or at work), but we rarely think about the air we breathe indoors. Studies show that air inside a typical house can be 3 to 5 times dirtier than outside! Dust, household chemicals, pets’ hair and other particles create our everyday indoor air environment. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality has become one of the top five environmental concerns.
HVAC system is a great contributor to the indoor air quality in your house. On average, air around the house circulates 5-7 times a day – that’s why clean air ducts are very important for a safe, healthy living. If some components of the HVAC system were not properly installed, were damaged or improperly maintained, household dust and other airborne particles may start collecting in the ducts in big quantities, thus, clogging the ducts and decreasing the air flow. It not only decreases the efficiency of the cooling/heating system, but also creates health hazards to the household members. Various types of microbes and other contaminants may cause allergic reactions and multiple respiratory problems. If moisture gets involved, there is also a great chance of mold growth and further spread of mold spores into the living space. In such cases, the process of air duct cleaning offers not only physical removal of dust and debris, but also elimination of airborne mold spores.
Proper air duct cleaning should involve thorough cleaning of all components of the air delivery system: from return to supply registers, and everything in between. Failure to clean one of the elements could cause re-contamination and offset the efficiency of the entire air duct cleaning process.
