Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?

By | Tagged with: Tags: , , | Comments Off on Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?

We often hear about concern over the amount of pollution in the air that reduces the quality of the air outside, but have you ever wondered about the indoor air quality in your own home? Several times a day, breathing irritants such as dust, pollen, animal dander, and even mold spores are circulated throughout your home via the air ducts of your HVAC system. In some cases, indoor air quality can be worse than the air outside your home. To keep you and your family breathing easily and safely, Magic Sweep is proud to offer professional air duct cleaning services. We use a specialized vacuum pressure duct cleaning system that will remove all of those irritants and contaminants from your home. We recommend having this service done annually to keep your indoor air quality at its best. While this service will benefit everyone, there are a few situations where air duct cleaning is essential. To help you decide whether or not you need this service, we would like to tell you more about when you should have your air duct system professionally cleaned.

You are having renovation work done in your home.

Remodeling your home can create a lot of dust and dirt, which enter your air ducts to get recirculated throughout every time your HVAC system is running. Not only does dirt and dust get into the system, but so do other irritants that can be very dangerous. If your home improvement project involves asbestos abatement or lead paint removal, Today’s Homeowner strongly recommends having your air ducts professionally cleaned. Even though your ducts should be sealed off during the renovation, your air ducts can still get very dirty.

You have seen signs of animals in your air duct system.

In the winter, wild animals are searching for a warm and safe place to nest, and your air ducts could be a potential new home. Whenever you see any signs of animal infestation in your air duct system, contact Magic Sweep. We can assist you with getting the animals safely removed and then clean your air ducts to get rid of any debris and germs left behind.

You have mold in your air ducts.

If you notice the tell-tale scent of mold whenever your HVAC system is running, you need to contact Magic Sweep immediately. This situation can be very hazardous to your health, especially if you have allergies or other respiratory issues. Breathing in mold spores can be deadly, so do not hesitate to have your air ducts professionally cleaned if you suspect mold is growing in the system.

You or another member of your household is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related sickness.

Not being able to breathe properly due to allergies can be not only frustrating but also hazardous to your health. If you have done everything you can in your home to eliminate the source of the allergy-related sickness and see no improvements, it is time for a professional air duct cleaning.
