You need to have your air ducts cleaned. All this pollen, dust, allergens, mold, pet hair are blowing and circulating in the air. Where do you think all this will settle? Well, I’ll tell you a secret. They just love your air conditioning system. They are attached to the flexible vents, to the insulated tunnels, to the return air, to the furnace blower, to the coils, and they stay there. And then, slowly they become loose and start to blow in your house, making a mess of your indoor air quality and then being sucked back in to your system again and again.
There are two main methods. One is negative air pressure, and the second is a surface cleaning. negative air pressure is done by a big strong vacuum that could be connected from a truck mount vacuum outside your house or a portable powerful vacuum inside your house. Both are connected to the HVAC system and by sealing all the vent supplys in every room, forcing a negative air pressure to the vacuum that is collecting dust and debris that is agitated by a rotary or a manual brush in one of the vents. Surface cleaning is made with a powerful vacuum that goes from vent to vent, brushing and vacuuming each duct at the same time.
You work hard to acquire a nice home and of course you do everything you can to keep it clean and looking nice what if we tell you that a few feet away right in your own home there could be easily dirt, dust, contamination, mold ,mildew and even dead rodents.
Over time, bacteria mold and mildew may grow in your air ducts, especially in humid climates. In order to prevent these contaminates and air born spores from spreading through your house and making your entire family ill, you will want to ensure that your air ducts are inspected and cleaned.
According to EPA (United State Environmental Protection Agency) the air inside your home or office may be up to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. Allergic asthma rates have increased 74% since 1980 at least 50-60 millions U.S residents suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or asthma. One out of six persons who suffer from allergies has a direct relationship to fungi and bacteria in the air duct systems.
Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other contaminants are pulled and vacuumed in to your air duct system every time that your air condition runs. In time this contaminants build up inside your air vents system to become a perfect breading ground for bacteria and fungi. So…when the air condition turned on this contaminants are pushed out and circulate inside your house polluting the indoor air quality.
It’s proven that removal of contaminants from the entire air vent system is most effective way to eliminate air duct pollution. Air duct cleaning will also help you maintain a dust free home it will help restore the air duct system capacity which will ensure a better airflow in less time for saving energy and heavy electricity bills.
You probably already aware of the many health problems that dirty furnace or air condition air ducts can affect like allergies, asthma, flew like symptoms, cuffing, sneezing, itchy eyes, running nose and more. They are caused by dirty air blowing around your home and all coming from your air vent system.
