Clean Your Air Ducts When You Spring Clean Your Home
March 27, 2015
Spring.. even though we haven't had any warm spring days yet, it won't be long until you want to open the windows and air-out the house. There's a wonderful feeling of renewal and energy in the spring, and if you are ready to take on spring cleaning you might want to consider having your air vent ducts cleaned as part of the annual routine.
Here are some questions to ask yourself.
Do you suffer from allergies?
Do you often sneeze when you are at home?
Do you have a lot of dust in your home?
Is your home new or has it had recent renovations?
Are you concerned about build-ups of dirt and debris in your ducts?
Would you feel better knowing your ducts are clean when you hear the furnace fan come on?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, you could benefit from air duct cleaning in your home.
Your air ducts are home to dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, construction garbage, pet hair... These contaminants are released into the atmosphere of your home, reducing the freshness of indoor air quality and increasing environmental sensitivity. Your home's air ducts require periodic cleaning to reduce these airbourne contaminants and to create a cleaner safer home for you and your family.
Residential air ducts should be cleaned when the house is new, following renovations and then approximately every two or three years after that. Modern construction may leave a large amount of drywall dust, insulation, shavings and various food debris, often left by construction workers.
The Technical Safety Standards Association (TSSA) now requires that air ducts be cleaned following construction, especially if the furnace was used during construction. In a new home the building debris leaves a film of dust on hardwood floors and all furniture. This can leave your skin feeling dry and itchy and can cause your furnace to malfunction. This dry dust, draws moisture from the air providing a perfect breeding ground and nutrient source for bacteria and microbial contamination.
In older homes, the dust accumulates to significant, measurable levels, often several inches deep. The dust forms on all surfaces significantly reducing airflow through the system. This causes the furnace and air conditioner to work harder and longer to bring the house to the desired temperature. You may also notice that the furnace has become noisy… This may be caused by dust accumulating on the fan blades, throwing the fan out of balance.

The uniformed cleaning technicians, attach an eight-inch hose to your air ducts. All vents are sealed and then compressed air powered agitation tools are fed through the ducts.
