Common Air Duct Cleaning Questions

January 9, 2015 | Air Duct Cleaning

When it comes to air duct cleaning many people have questions about the process. Keeping air ducts clean is something every homeowner needs to be willing and able to do. There are certain questions about duct cleaning that are commonly asked.

One of those questions is what might one find in an air duct. The answer to this is that bacteria, mold, rodent droppings, insects, dust, sawdust, Sheetrock, pollen and even dead skin cells from humans can end up in one. Another commonly asked question is whether or not cleaning air ducts can make a difference for occupants of a house who suffer from asthma or allergies. The answering is that getting allergens out of one’s air ducts can make a difference. When air conditioners and heaters are used in a house any allergens in the air ducts end up in the air that those living in the home are breathing in.

Other people want to know whether or not keeping their air duct clean will help them save money. The answer is that it will help them because a house with a clean air duct will have air conditioners and heaters that don’t have to work as hard to get the job done. This saves energy which saves homeowners money. The more efficiently heaters and air conditioners operate the better it is for homeowners.

People also often ask how having their air duct cleaned will affect their housework. The answer is that it makes their housework easier because there won’t be as much dust on furniture and ceiling fans. Since dust can be made of mold, fibers, dirt and pollen it can easily slip into one’s air ducts and cause the dust to be blown back over their belongings.

Many homeowners ask why there is a need for them to keep their air ducts clean and the answer is that the air duct in a house is basically its respiratory system. Dirt can then congest a home’s respiratory system and make it harder to breath. Mold is much more likely to develop in homes where the air ducts are not kept clean than in homes where they are kept clean.

These are some of the most common questions homeowners have about maintaining their air ducts. Since their maintenance can be difficult it is best to hire a professional cleaner.
