Air ducts are essential to the functionality of our air conditioners and heating systems. Without them, we either have to rely on specific heating and cooling systems, like ductless mini splits, or figure out some other way to have treated air distributed throughout our homes. The longer your air ducts go without being cleaned, the more likely it is that your indoor air is suffering from a wide variety of contaminants. Let us explain.
Dust isn’t the only thing you should worry about existing in your air ducts. Bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other contaminants can live and breed inside your air duct system. Also, without proper air duct cleaning in Gainesville, FL, your HVAC system could see a serious decrease in efficiency with all of these contaminants gunking up the system.
We’re going to talk today specifically about what’s in your air ducts and how our cleaning services get rid of them.
What Can Stay in Your Air Ducts
It’s hard to say exactly what’s in your air ducts because we can’t see inside of them. They’re designed specifically to be out of sight and out of mind, so if you’re looking for a definitive answer of what’s in your ducts, you’re better off calling our team. However, we can get the ball rolling by telling you about what can be in your air ducts. All of these require the help of professional duct cleaners, so don’t try reading this list and going off to clean your ducts on your own.
- Dust. Dust is the major culprit when it comes to the decreasing efficiency of your HVAC system. You’ve seen the horror stories and pictures online of ducts that are so heavily caked in dust that it seems almost impossible that any air makes it through them at all. Don’t let your air ducts get to that point. Call our team for duct cleaning services before the dust begins to impact your HVAC machinery.
- Bacteria and Viruses. Bacteria and viruses can thrive pretty much anywhere, but our normal household cleaning supplies are good enough to keep them at bay. However, your air ducts are a place that is far away from you and hard to reach, which means household cleaning products just won’t cut it.
- Mold. Mold can thrive in your air ducts because it’s dark and sometimes damp, depending on the humidity situation. Our team can sanitize your air ducts so mold can’t grow.
- Pet Dander and Allergens. Allergens can get bunched up with dust and sit in your air ducts for years. Our cleaning services get at these contaminants and remove them.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning can do two major things for your home. The first is that it can simply make your home cleaner and your air feel healthier to breathe. The second important benefit of duct cleaning is that it removes these particles from the air so your HVAC system can run as efficiently as possible. The fewer contaminants there are floating in the air, the easier it is for your heater or air conditioner to keep the air comfortable.
