DIRTY DUCTS CAN HIDE PET DANDER, MOLD SPORES, AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH HAZARDS. DUCT CLEANING IS AN INEXPENSIVE WAY TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY IN YOUR PERSONAL HOME, TO PROTECT YOUR RENTERS IN A VACATION PROPERTY, OR TO PROTECT YOUR EMPLOYEES AT YOUR PLACE OF BUSINESS.
Duct cleaning is not a cure for allergies or any other medical condition. Duct cleaning is not a singular solution to a severe mold issues inside your home or business either. The benefits of duct cleaning are currently being evaluated by the EPA. However due to growing concerns about indoor air quality, many home and business owners are deciding to have their ducts cleaned. Ducts that are really dirty, really need to be cleaned. The EPA recommends cleaning only if the ducts and HVAC unit are contaminated by the following:
Renovation: If your home has been remodeled – especially if there was asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, or significant dust – your ductwork may need to be cleaned.
Animals: If there’s evidence of animal infestation or nesting in your ducts or HVSC system, have the animals removed then clean the ductwork and HVAC system should be cleaned.
Contaminants: If noticeable debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed; then the ducts may need to be cleaned.
Illness: If someone is your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy – related illness you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system is the culprit.
Blue Sky Services and Restoration also recommends duct cleaning if you have had smoke damage related to a fire, wood burning stove, fireplace, or if you have an oil burning furnace. Again, this must be assessed first to ensure that cleaning alone will be sufficient.
Duct cleaning is also recommended at times as one in a series of steps to eliminate odor issues in a home or business.
