You have your carpets professionally cleaned every year, have an expert power wash your home's exterior, and even take your car to a car wash to have it cleaned. These chores, though not needed often, are still necessary to help you live a more fulfilled and organized life.
If you have a heating and cooling system that operates via blowing temperature-controlled air through vents in your floors, walls, or ceiling, then you need to have these areas professionally cleaned periodically as well.
Discover the benefits in having this often-ignored home maintenance task professionally done. You will also learn how many times a year you should have your ducts and vents cleaned and signs they need to be inspected between regular cleanings.
As debris gets trapped in your HVAC system, dust, hair and other allergens can get transferred into the air every time you turn the heat or cool air on. If you live with small children or elderly people who suffer from asthma or allergies, have your ducts cleaned to ensure their health, especially if you have pets.
Have your dryer and other vents cleaned at the same time you have your air ducts attended to. While your dryer will be less likely to accumulate hair and dander than your air ducts, performing a cleaning service on all air passageways in your home can help keep allergies at bay. If you keep your dryer vent clean, you’ll help it operate more efficiently by allowing heat to escape the unit.
Almost all malfunctions in an HVAC system can be traced back to dirt or other debris in the air ducts. Protect the mechanisms of your HVAC system so it lasts longer and performs more efficiently by hiring a professional to clean your system.
If you notice dust billowing from your air ducts when the air is running or smell a musty, wet dirt smell coming from your vents, call your HVAC specialist right away. This task is not time-consuming and can save you on costly repairs in the future. Clean your dryer vent at the same time to help the equipment last longer by letting the heating coils work as they are intended to.
