What Are the Health Benefits of Duct Cleaning?

Last week, we wrote about the importance of scheduling regular air duct cleaning with our team. It’s a wise idea to have this done every 3 to 5 years, or whenever you notice a drop in the efficiency of your HVAC system. Along with improving the performance of home cooling and heating, air duct cleaning can also have health benefits. We’ll take a closer look at some of the ways clean air ducts can boost health conditions in your house.

Eliminating Harmful Contaminants in Your Ventilation System

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), air ducts are a collection point in a home for a high number of airborne contaminants that will negatively affect people’s health. This includes mold, various types of fungus, and dust mites. Any plan to improve the overall air quality of a house should include air duct cleaning, which wipes out one of the biggest reservoirs for these unhealthy contaminants.

If you need to take special action against molds and other organic pollutants in your home, let us install a UV air purifier!

Protect the Special Health Needs of People in Your House

The contaminants in air ducts will have a stronger effect on children in a household since they inhale more air per unit of body weight. (In fact, among the top 5 reasons for emergency room visits are asthma and colds in children under 10 years old.) The elderly are the group second most likely to suffer due to airborne pollutants coming from the ductwork.

There is also the concern for people in a home who suffer from asthma and allergies. The fungi and bacteria that lodge inside air ducts are a major contributor to allergy problems. In fact, if there are people living in your home who have series allergies or respiratory problems, it’s probably wise to call us for duct cleaning more often than every 3 to 5 years. We can help see that you’re receiving the indoor air quality services necessary for the best health throughout your house!
