Duct Cleaning is important if your ducts are clogged with large amounts of dust and debris released into your home through supply registers. When indoor pollutants like plant pollen, smoke, construction debris and animal dandruff are carried throughout your home through the ductwork, some people could suffer from allergic reactions. Airborne fungi can settle on and damage furniture and fixtures, and dust can harm computers and other sensitive equipment.
HVAC Ductwork Preventative Maintenance
While regular scheduled service and maintenance of your home HVAC heating system, furnace or cooling system is very important, and is necessary to prevent HVAC breakdowns and repairs, regular maintenance to the HVAC ductwork is also very necessary, though often overlooked by homeowners. The importance of air duct cleaning lies in the fact that dust, pollutants and other toxins that can be circulating through your home air flow, tend to collect in bends and corners of the ductwork system. When these toxins become dislodged, they enter back into the air flowing around your home, and can cause a number of adverse health effects. A scheduled cleaning of your home ductwork can not only prevent certain health issues such as allergies and asthma, but can also lessen the restriction of air flow and give you a more efficiently running HVAC system.
