With the winter fast approaching, your vents are due to get a workout like they haven’t seen for a number of months. The hot air that’s due to start pumping out of your heater any day now will be traveling through your ducts like they were your house’s arteries.
As any doctor will tell you, buildup in the arteries can lead to a lot of health complications. In much the same way, you need to make sure that your ventilation system is free from obstructions and pollutants that can seriously hamper the enjoyment of your own home. Not every homeowner has the time and ability to take care of this task themselves, however.
A professional duct cleaning service will have the training and equipment necessary to go into your home and quickly remove hair, dust, dirt, ash and other polluting materials. Keeping these substances out of your vents reduces the amount of sinus and allergy problems many people experience during the winter months.
Indoor air pollution is a major contributing factor to many of the respiratory disorders we suffer throughout the year. Ventilation systems should be professionally cleaned at least once every few years to ensure that everyone residing in the home is breathing fresh air. Getting the problem taken care of now before the winter sets in will nip the problem in the bud before it has a chance of making you or your family sick.
A thorough cleaning of a ventilation system requires vacuuming, scrubbing and disinfecting all surfaces to keep bacteria and mold from growing. A professional service can also help a homeowner spot a leak in the duct work, potentially saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars in heating bills.
