3 Ways Fall Air Duct Cleaning Can Help You Stay Healthier this Winter
Sep 21, 2018
Fall is the perfect time for air duct cleaning. Why? Because, as we head toward the season of cold weather and fewer opportunities to open the window for natural air refreshing, we need clean air ducts to limit the impurities that flow through our homes.
Cleaner air means breathing easier, healthier lungs and a more comfortable environment, and all air circulates through your HVAC system while you seal your home against the elements.
Here are three ways cleaning air ducts this fall will help keep you healthier through the winter months.
Eliminate Accumulated Dust & Dirt
Dust and dirt enter your home through open windows and doors, and on your clothing and shoes. Daily life is messy. You wouldn’t leave those “natural” deposits on furniture, counters and appliances for an entire year. While you routinely clean the visible surfaces in your home, dirt and dust are silently accumulating in your duct work – day after day, week after week – triggering allergy and asthma attacks.
Remove Foul Odors
Odors emanating from the duct work typically originate from organic sources including:
- Family pets
- Pest and vermin
- Cooking prep
Sweeping and sanitizing the system ducts eliminates foul odors at the source, removing vermin tracks and nests along with dust and dirt saturated with mold, chemical fumes and food odors.
Reduce Common Illness Frequency
A thorough cleaning of the air ducts reduces or removes bacteria, viruses and fungi that cause respiratory ailments and trigger contagious respiratory sicknesses such as pneumonia, the flu or even a common cold. Fewer flair ups mean fewer missed school and work days for you and your family.
