What’s in Your Air Ducts?

Monday, March 29th, 2021

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.
