The Dangers of Dirty Air Ducts..
If you’re experiencing allergies or asthma symptoms, it’s time to have your air ducts cleaned. In fact, according to the EPA, dirty air ducts are one of the top five sources of indoor air pollution. Dust, dirt, and other allergens can accumulate in your air ducts over time, and this can cause all types of health problems; including allergies, asthma, respiratory infections, sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes. If you or someone in your family has asthma, dirty air ducts can be a trigger for an asthma attack.
Not sure your ducts are dirty? There are a few things you can do to check. First, look for any visible dirt or dust buildup on the outside of your vents. This will be the easiest sign to notice. You should also be on the lookout for any unpleasant/ musty odors comin from your vents. As this is often a sign of mold or mildew growth in your air ducts.
If you suspect that your air ducts are dirty, the best thing to do is to have them professionally cleaned. This will ensure that all of the dirt, dust, and allergens are removed from your vents and that your home is once again safe and healthy to live in.

Spring Cleaning – How clean is your home’s HVAC system?

4/5/2016 (Permalink)

As a company specializing in cleaning services of all types and sizes, SERVPRO of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties finds that one of the most overlooked aspects of a clean home is the HVAC system and vents.  Have you ever thought to yourself…I wonder what is in my vents?  It’s a good question.  If you’ve never had your system cleaned before, then consider these benefits…

From the National Air Duct Cleaners Association:

Indoor Air Quality.  In a typical six room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is generated annually just through every day living!  That’s potentially 40 pounds of dust covering the inside of your system and being recirculated through your home every year.

Respiratory Issues and Allergies.  Think of all of the cleaning products, chemicals, dander, etc. present in your home each day.  Those particles are circulated on average 5-7 times per day.  These contaminants could build up in the duct work.  While this doesn’t necessarily mean your system is unhealthy, the buildup and recirculation of these contaminants could pose serious health problems to those with allergies or respiratory and/or autoimmune disorders.

Energy Savings.  According the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used to cool or heat a home is wasted.  Contaminant build up inside the system over time causes the unit to work harder and can ultimately shorten the life of your system.  With a clean system, the unit doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature which leads to less energy being used and greater cost effectiveness.

If you haven’t had your HVAC system cleaned for some time – or ever – consider using the professional services of SERVPRO of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties.  Our experienced team can provide you with an affordable quote to have your entire system cleaned and fogged with an EPA registered disinfectant.  Having a clean system is a great way to promote healthy air quality in your home and lower energy costs each month.  Sounds like a great way to kick off your spring cleaning!
