Air Duct Cleaning Benefits

Bring a Breath of Fresh Air for Your Vancouver Home with Professional Duct Cleaning

Super Standard, February 13, 2024

Your home’s air ducts are like a hidden ecosystem, laden with debris, dust, dirt, and even mould you may not know. For most homeowners, air ducts are out of mind and sight. This is even so when the EPA recommends cleaning the ducts regularly. Think about this: the average homeowner replaces their HVAC air filter once a year, but your air ducts have probably not been cleaned for over a decade!

Dirty Air Ducts Compromise Your Health

The accumulation of dust and debris in air ducts over time creates a favourable breeding ground for mould. Recent studies show that 90% of houses have mould growing in their ducts. The presence of mould spores in the atmosphere of your home can trigger allergic and asthmatic symptoms. Some types of moulds also produce toxins, which can cause diseases. Dust accumulation also provides an ideal environment for dust mites whose body parts and feces can cause allergies and asthma. Rodents and insects can also be attracted to the warmth of air ducts, and they will leave behind fur, droppings and even nests. Each time your HVAC system is on, these pollutants get blown into the air you inhale.

The Process and Benefits of a Thorough Duct Cleaning

Moreover, ignoring air duct cleaning decreases indoor air quality, and clogged ducts force your HVAC system to work harder to push air through the blocked vents. This makes your system work harder, which results in higher energy costs, lower efficiency, and expensive repairs later. Airflow is improved by professional duct cleaning, and thus, the system doesn’t have to work that hard. You will be better off, and so will your energy bill. A mighty vacuum hose goes into every duct in a typical duct cleaning. It draws out old buildup like dust, dirt, pet hair, and pollen particles. Spinning brushes scrape off stuck particles from the duct walls. Sometimes, pressurized air is also used to shift hard-to-move buildup. After the ducts are clean, a germ-blocking protectant is commonly applied to stop microbes from growing. The frequency of duct cleaning varies depending on different factors, such as pet ownership, number of occupants, and allergies or asthma. For homes with low traffic and no pets, a cleaning every 5-7 years should suffice. However, homes with pets or more people may require more frequent cleaning, around every 2-3 years.

Leave Duct Cleaning to the Experts

While it may be tempting to attempt DIY duct cleaning, it’s important to note that professional services yield much better results. Technicians use industrial-grade vacuums with greater suction power than ordinary models. Additionally, they have specialized tools that can thoroughly clean the entire ductwork system. Furthermore, licensed professionals are trained to perform the task safely and efficiently.
