Our air ducts are often out of sight, out of mind, until we notice a difference in the quality of the air we are breathing in. Air filters help block contaminants and pollutants, yet our heating and cooling systems still build up dirt and grime through normal use. An HVAC system works hard to move air through its ductwork and circulate that air in your home. Many chemicals and contaminants enter a building through everyday use, such as dander and dust, and are released into the air through the ducts. Over time, these leftover contaminants and pollutants build up in your HVAC ductwork.
Dirty ducts can be unhealthy for people with respiratory issues, seasonal allergies and other health disorders, as well as cause your HVAC system to work harder, increasing your energy bills.
It is important to maintain clean air ducts by having them professionally cleaned on a regular basis. When air ducts are cleaned, the solid matter that has built up over time is manually removed, clearing the ducts of the dirt, clogs, mold and allergens that they contained.
After cleaning your air ducts, you may choose to take the next step and undergo duct sanitizing. While duct cleaning removes the contaminants and pollutants from your ductwork, sanitizing your air ducts kills any mold or mildew that still may be lurking inside and decreases lingering bacterial odors and moldy smells.
Consider sanitizing your air ducts if:
- Someone in the family has breathing related health concerns
- You have pets in the house
- You have had water leaks/water damage in your air duct system
- You have an unpleasant odor in your ductwork
- You suspect there is mold, bacteria, viruses, or fungi in your air ducts
The sanitization process involves spraying sanitizer with a fogger to coat the interior of the air ducts, eliminating any remaining bacteria, pollutants, and viruses left behind. You can breathe easier knowing your home or building is free of harmful pollutants and germs.
