Why do we need to clean our ducts

Duct Cleaning South Carolina - East Cooper Heating and AirYou may be asking your spouse, “Why do we need to clean our ducts”. If Air Ducts are not properly maintained and operated, many components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home’s living space.

According to the EPA, levels of air pollution inside the home can be 2 to 5 times high than outdoor levels and they rank poor indoor air quality among the top 5 environmental risks to the public. People that are the most susceptible to indoor air pollution are children, pregnant women, and the elderly.

Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Do you have Pets?

Dogs and cats are the most common culprits of dirty air ducts. They bring in dirt and bacteria into the house and it often finds its way into the air ducts. Furthermore, the amount of hair these animals shed often gets sucked into our vents. In Charleston, we must use our air conditioners throughout the summer and in turn, we find ourselves circulating massive amounts of air into the ducts.

Does anyone in your house suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems?

Air duct cleaning removes mold, pollen, dust, bug parts, pet dander, and anything else in there that should not be there. Specifically, in Charleston, we tend to have excessive amounts of pollen in the air that tends to flare up allergies in many people. It is important to remove pollen in your air ducts so it ceases to continue to circulate throughout your home or office.

Do you regularly clean excessive dust accumulations from your household furniture?

If you have excessive amounts of dust on your furniture, it is safe to assume that your ducts are dirty as well.

Do you have “dust trails” or discoloring coming out of your air duct registers?

If so, it is very likely that the problem stems from your ducts.

When you last changed your furnace filter, did you see dust and dirt inside the filter housing?

If your filter is dirty every month than you probably have some of that dirt in your ducts. Contact us for a complete inspection.
