Heating and cooling systems are a necessity, especially for homes located in a place with four distinct seasons and temperature extremes. While these systems are efficient in cooling and heating a home, they tend to collect a lot of dust and dirt despite having filters installed, inevitably bringing them around the house through their vents and ducts.
Along with dust and dirt, your HVAC’s forced air components could be bringing different things with it like dust mites, fungi, bacteria, viruses, mold, pollen, allergens, and more. If you find yourself sneezing uncontrollably and your allergies acting up a lot, then maybe it’s time to have professionals step in and clean up your ducts.
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, having your ducts cleaned helps improve indoor air quality as it removes most of the dust that gets circulated around your home. For example, the NADCA says that in a six-room home, a duct can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust in a year. This dust buildup would then be re-circulated 5 to 7 times in a day, tickling your noses, making you itchy, and triggering your allergies.
Through duct cleaning, dust accumulation could be prevented, and ducts and vents could be sanitized, eliminating any harmful elements that could harm your health.
