Are you spending more time outdoors since the weather has finally warmed up? If you’re like many, you may be spending more time than you realize inside even during warm weather. While we may want to do more activities outside, things like pollen and insects still drive us indoors. Even inside our houses, we may still be exposed more allergens than we think. At Magic Sweep, we would like to inform you about the effects of a dirty air ducts system and how we can help.

Dirty Air Ducts

a beautiful simple houseAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your home air ducts hold contaminates that circulate throughout your entire home. These contaminants are caused by dirt, mold spores, and rodent feces, so having a professional come out and clean your air ducts  is very important this spring! Dirty air ducts can lead to moisture damage, a strained central air or heat system, and respiratory issues for those that live in your home.

Prevent Duct Contamination

You can prevent duct contamination by having a professional come perform an air ducts cleaning. You can also prevent contamination by keeping your home clean of rodents and insects. Replacing your air filter is another important way to have a clean and efficient air duct system. Change your filters more frequently if they get clogged often. You should never use your system without an air filter.

Ask your maintenance person to clean the cooling coils and drain pans next time maintenance is being done. Only use a dehumidifier if it is recommended by a professional or manufacturer. Keep moisture out of your air ducts and check for signs of mold regularly. In order to prevent water damage and mold growth, repair leaks and water damage as soon as possible. Make sure all ducts and vents are working properly and have no leaks. If trash, toys, and dirt fall into your vent outlet covers, make sure to clean it out immediately to prevent buildup and obstruction.
