Duct Cleaning Makes Dramatic Improvements to Your Indoor Air Quality

The smallest particles in the air are no small thing when your family members
have allergies or asthma. imagesGerms in the air can make you sick, and it might seem like there is nothing you can do to keep the common cold and other illnesses away.

The health and wellness of your family is your number one priority. And at Air On Demand, we make it our priority too. Have you scheduled duct cleaning with our friendly team members yet? You might be surprised at the difference this service can make for your home, and how much better you’ll feel when it’s done. 

How Your Ducts Can Make You Sick

Think of the last time you cleaned a hard-to-reach area of the house, like behind the refrigerator or the top of the ceiling fan. You may have been a bit shocked by the amount of dust and debris you wiped up—and how quickly it accumulated.

Now imagine a part of your home you have never cleaned before. When the blower fan in your HVAC system sucks in air, it also brings in all of the very small particulate floating around in the home (besides what gets trapped in the filter). Dust moves in through the air vents as well. And, eventually, your ducts are coated in a layer of dust you cannot reach. Within this dust, there may also be many contaminants, such as…

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Pollen
  • Dust Mites
  • Pet Dander
  • Mold Spores

These things can aggravate preexisting conditions, or even lead to illness in people who are otherwise completely healthy. And as air continues to move through the ducts, these contaminants can get pushed back into the space in your home.

But You Cannot Clean Them On Your Own

Think you can just grab a flashlight and a long broom and start cleaning? Think again.

Your air ducts are fragile and inaccessible without the right tools. Only certified air and heating experts have the tools and experience to get inside the ducts and provide the service necessary to clear them of dirt, allergens, and germs. If you attempt to do it yourself, you could not only kick up dust and make the situation a whole lot worse, but you can damage your ducts as well!

As an added bonus, clean ducts may help air to move to the home more efficiently. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard without all of that dust blocking the flow of air!
