Air Duct Cleaning
Can you remember the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? Air Duct Cleaning Seattle WA specializes in quality air duct cleaning services and our number one concern is maintaining the good condition of your air ducts because we know that it directly affects you! One of the most significant problems people face in daily life is not having clean air to breath in their homes. Having good indoor air quality in your home is paramount to being healthy, especially since most people spend more time inside than outside.
Why is it important to clean your air ducts?
The primary components of your home ventilation system are air ducts, therefore it is very important to clean them routinely. It is recommended that you get your air ducts cleaned about once every two years. Keeping your air ducts clean ensures clean indoor breathing air and an overall healthier environment. If air ducts are not maintained properly, dust, debris, spores, and bacteria can accumulate inside the ducts and can cause the air inside your home to become soiled. Since the air in your home ventilation system is constantly being recycled, it can be dangerous if your air ducts are dirty. This is because the contaminants in the air ducts can be blown back in to your home on the air that blows through the vents. Additionally, dirty air ducts can accumulate mold, which can then expand into your home. Dirty air ducts can be attributed to several health issues like respiratory problems, sinus and nasal problems, and allergy-related problems. This is especially dangerous for people with asthma because the dust and debris in the air is hazardous to lungs. By keeping your air ducts clean, you can reduce allergies and prevent mold from growing.
It is also important to clean you air duct system because it reduces energy costs. When there are a lot of contaminants inside the air ducts, it reduces air flow through the ducts, so you are forced to run your air conditioning or heater for longer periods of time. Additionally, cleaning your air ducts regularly extends the lifetime of your air duct system.
What is air duct cleaning?
Air Duct Cleaning Seattle WA uses state of the art equipment to clean the air ducts thoroughly and efficiently. Our experienced technicians will first inspect your air duct system to understand what kind of maintenance is needed. In well maintained systems, the cleaning process involves the negative pressure method. This method requires a machine that creates a vacuum which causes all the impurities in the air ducts to be sucked out. However, in non-maintained systems, brushing is first required before the negative pressure method can be used. This is because the dust, dirt, mold, and other contaminants become stuck to the walls of the air ducts and will not come off without brushing. Additionally, we will sanitize your air ducts and shine a UV light on the surfaces of the air ducts to kill the bacteria present. Additionally, we sell filters that can replace your current filters in your furnace, which is part of the air duct system. Plus, these filters will never have to be changed again because they have life time warranties.
How do you know when your air duct system needs cleaning?
There are many simple ways to tell if your air duct system is dirty. If you have dirty ducts, sometimes people in the home will show allergy-like symptoms, like sneezing or coughing. Additionally, dirty air ducts will blow dust back into your home, so signs of dirty ducts are dust on the furniture and dust on exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens. Sometimes, dirty air duct systems will even be noisy or smelly.
