How can mold grow in my air duct system?
When dirt and dust accumulate inside your air ducts, they become a breeding ground for mold. Visit our informative FAQ section below for further details and answers to many more commonly asked questions.
What exactly is air duct cleaning?
Over time, the ductwork in your home can collect dust, lint, and other airborne debris that travels through the air in your home. Professional air duct cleaning removes this buildup from inside your air ducts by using specialized blowers, brushes and vacuums to remove anything that shouldn’t be there. We also make sure any air handlers, including grills, registers, fans, motors, and coils in your HVAC system are also cleaned so that you and your family can enjoy clean, breathable air throughout your home.
Which are the most common issues with HVAC air ducts?
Dust and pollen may get accumulated inside, especially if the system uses poor-quality air filters and/or they aren’t changed regularly. Leaks and holes are also not uncommon, especially around the sections where the ducts are connected to registers and vents. They lead to greater accumulation of particles and cause the system to work less efficiently. The good news is that both problems can be solved with proper air duct cleaning and repair.
What are the key factors for keeping the home indoor air quality high?
Vacuuming all floors and cleaning all other surfaces weekly are among the key factors for achieving this. You should replace the HVAC air filter and have the air ducts cleaned following a carefully set schedule. Frequent measuring of the indoor air quality is also important.
