Potential Health Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Dirty air ducts can potentially pose a health risk to family, friends and loved ones while also increasing monthly energy bills due to obstructed air flow. Both of these issues can be solved by having residential duct cleaning performed at your home. Although professional duct cleaning can improve a home’s indoor air quality and lower energy bills, it’s important to note that duct cleaning does not prevent illness or health problems altogether. Instead, residential duct cleaning helps to reduce the presence of viruses, bacteria, mould or other pollutants that may contribute to some health issues.

Reduced Exposure to Mould
Possibly one of the biggest health hazards that dirty air ducts pose is the potential exposure to mould. This tends to occur when moisture finds its way into the ductwork due to air leaks in the ventilation system, damaged plumbing pipes, or an excess of humidity in the home. Residential duct cleaning can eliminate this problem by carefully cleaning the air ducts and in some cases using chemical biocides to kill mold spores, preventing the problem from reoccurring.
May Alleviate Allergy Problems
For those who are sensitive to allergens, residential duct cleaning may help in easing many symptoms. Poor indoor air quality caused by pollen, pet dander or other allergens can often be resolved with residential duct cleaning.
Helps Eliminate the Presence of Pests
Rodents, insects and other pests all too often find their way into the a home’s ductwork. Uninvited guests like rats for example carry dangerous diseases such as rabies or can introduce fleas to a household. Although residential duct cleaning is not a form of pest control, all the activity and noise taking place in the air ducts during cleaning will discourage pests from sticking around. Not only that, pests will be less likely to return following duct cleaning since any water sources in the ductwork will be gone. Chemical biocides, if used, will also deter many pests from calling your ventilation system home- especially insects.
