Here’s why indoor air quality matters
Your home’s previous owner may have been lax in duct cleaning
Depending on your home’s previous owner, she or he may not have done a great job of keeping it clean. That means there’s no telling what may be up there that you and your family are breathing in. Duct cleaning allows you to inhale and exhale with ease and confidence that the air isn’t just dust and other contaminants blowing around in an endless, trapped loop.
Pests can leave behind contaminants
If you’ve ever had cockroaches, mice, or other pests in your home, they may have moved through your ducts and left behind a little gift. Droppings and other contaminants can linger long after the pest has gone, leaving you with yet another infestation to deal with—and some nasty, foul-smelling indoor air to breathe in.
Mold and mildew may be lurking in your ducts
Homes that have moisture issues are likely to have mold and mildew issues, as well. Musty smells that seem to have no source could be coming from your vents due to mildew or mold growing inside. These contaminants can do more damage to your healthy than just simply making it hard to breathe, so take care of them as soon as possible.
Your air filters may be clogged
Over time, your HVAC system’s air filters can become clogged with trapped dirt and debris.
Dust, pollen, and the like can blow through your ducts and out your vents into the air you breathe. It’s best to have your filters cleaned at the same time as when you clean your ducts to truly take care of the issue.
Reduce unnecessary spending
If it turns out that it’s your ductwork that’s making it hard for you to breathe, you may visit your doctor or buy medicine to feel better. Your doctor and a prescription may make you feel better, but—in our book—your money is better spent on a final solution rather than temporary relief.
