Breathe Easier and Enjoy Better Home Air Quality with Professional Duct Cleaning

As anyone with asthma, allergies, and other breathing issues knows, air quality is everything. Good, clean, fresh air is a joy to breathe. But air that’s full of dust, pollen, and other contaminants? It’s a recipe for watery eyes, an itchy nose, sneezing fits, and other misery. 

One way to protect yourself from flare-ups is by making sure the air in your home is the best it can be. And for that, you’ll have to go beyond routine dusting and mopping to the inner workings of your HVAC system.

How your home HVAC system works

Before we jump into how to clean it, it helps to know what HVAC is. The name itself explains a lot: it stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. 

More specifically, an HVAC system is a network of vents and ducts that heats, cools, and moves air throughout your home. Whether you live in a 500-square-foot condo or a sprawling five-bedroom home, the system works in the same way and requires regular maintenance to function at its best. 

How duct cleaning improves your home’s indoor air

Dust, pollen, dirt, fumes, pet dander, and mold accumulate in your home over time, no matter how often you clean. If you have pets who shed constantly or kids who track dirt in the house, it adds up even quicker. 

Tiny particles stay suspended in the air, where the vacuum, mop, and broom can’t get them. From there, they get sucked into your HVAC system’s vents and ducts, where they can sit and accumulate for years, circulating and recirculating in your home’s air. 

Dirty, dusty air has a huge impact on health. When you breathe in these particles, they can trigger allergic reactions and asthma flare-ups as well as coughing, sneezing, headaches, and more. 

So, just how much of an impact can professional duct cleaning have? Consider that the average duct cleaning job removes about five to six pounds of debris from a home’s HVAC system. You’ll breathe a lot easier without all of that stuff floating around. 

How often you should have professional duct cleaning done

In general, it’s a good idea to have a professional duct cleaning about every three years. There are reasons, however, why you might want to do it more frequently.

If you notice any of the following, we recommend getting your ducts cleaned ASAP:

  • If visible mold is growing on any area of your HVAC system. 
  • If you can see or hear pests, like rodents or insects, living in your ductwork. 
  • If people in your household are experiencing headaches, coughing, or sneezing that doesn’t have a known cause. 
  • If the air in your home feels hot, humid, sticky, or stagnant.
