With all of the dirt and dust that comes with having your home closed off for winter, it’s no wonder that we make a tradition of spring cleaning. To truly get your home clean, include air duct cleaning in your spring cleaning ritual! Cleaning your air ducts removes that dirt and dust from your home’s HVAC system, preventing it from being recirculated through your home once you turn on the air conditioning for the summer.Removing that dust and debris from your HVAC system can help cut down on the amount of dust that accumulates on your home’s surfaces, it can reduce symptoms of allergies and chronic lung ailments, and it can help prevent unpleasant smells from circulating through your home. In addition to dust, air duct cleaning removes less pleasant things from your air ducts, such as mold, animal droppings and trapped rodents. Cleaning your home’s air ducts also allows your HVAC system to operate more efficiently, lowering your heating and cooling bills and extending the life of your system!
After your air ducts are cleaned, there are ways to help keep them clean and prevent dust, dirt, dander and mold from circulating through your system. Of course, you want to regularly change your HVAC system’s filters. Also, filters can be installed over air supply registers to help prevent dust and dander from being drawn into the system. You should have your furnace and air conditioner cleaned and inspected regularly to keep it running optimally. Clean Air America also can install an ultraviolet light air purification system to your ductwork to make sure the air circulating through your home remains germ free!
