As a homeowner, you know it’s important to keep your house clean and tidy. You sweep, mop, vacuum, clean the bathrooms, wash the windows and more. But when was the last time you cleaned your air ducts? Hopefully your answer isn’t “never.” The same contaminants that you regularly clean up in your house can also be found in the air ducts. Since you never know what might be growing in your air ducts, there are numerous reasons to regularly hire specialists for air duct cleaning in Village, VA. Here are five common contaminants that might be clogging your ductwork.
Pet dander and hair
If you have any type of furry friend living in your house, you know how much hair and dander they can inadvertently leave behind while running around. It’s not hard to clean up the hair you can see—running the vacuum or sweeping easily takes care of the problem on the floor. But that same hair can get trapped in your air ducts, and this is much harder to address. The hair and dander trapped in your air ducts is a hotbed for germs and eventually can build up and clog your ducts.
Mold loves growing in damp, cool, dark spaces. Do you know what’s damp, cool and dark? That’s right—your air ducts! If not treated regularly, mold can grow in and around your air ducts. Mold in your air ducts is especially dangerous to your and your family’s wellbeing. Mold spores are responsible for many allergies (see below), and in some cases, can even be deadly. Our air duct cleaning in Village, VA can include anti-microbe fogging, which will take care of any mold or mildew growth.
Dust and pollen
Just like pet hair and dander, dust and pollen are an unavoidable inconvenience in your home. Again, it’s easy to clean up what you can spot, but dust and pollen can quickly build up in your vents and wreak havoc on your HVAC system, and potentially your health if you suffer from allergies.
All of the above hazards that can accumulate and grow in air ducts can cause allergies for many people across the nation. Pet dander and pollen stuck in your air ducts can cause dry eyes, runny noses and sinus headaches. That’ll make life miserable for an allergy sufferer, and nobody should be uncomfortable in their own home. Our air duct cleaning in Village, VA will eliminate any allergens stuck in your ducts and ensure a happy and healthy life for everyone in your family.
An inefficienct system
Finally, proper air duct cleaning can and will improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. As contaminants build up around your vents, the harder your system has to work to force air out to get your home to a comfortable temperature. The harder your system works, the more electricity it will use, and thus the higher your energy bill will be.
