Over time your ducts can fill up with dust, mold, insects and other gunk. After a major remodel in your home your ducts can benefit from a cleaning so you’re breathing clean air.
Duct Cleaning In St. Louis County & St. Charles County
Most people are now aware that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased visibility. Many companies are marketing products and services intended to improve the quality of your indoor air. You have probably seen an advertisement, received a coupon in the mail, or been approached directly by a company offering to clean your air ducts as a means of improving your home’s indoor air quality.
Are Dirty Ducts Hazardous to Your Health?
Some people are more sensitive to airborne dust and pet dander than others. Also if you have mold growing in your ducts, cleaning them out so the mold doesn’t spread is beneficial. Also if you’re experiencing frequent nose bleeds and dry skin during the colder months you may need a whole-home humidifier.
Take A Look At Your Ductwork
If there’s gunk within a few feet of the register, take heart. It’s easy to snake a vacuum cleaner hose into the duct and remove the stuff. However, if you see a long trail of junk and a thick coat of dust beyond what your vacuum can reach, your house may be a candidate for professional cleaning.
Look for These Symptoms
Clogs of dust, cobwebs, and debris, or noticeable particles blowing out of supply registers
Visible mold on the inside surfaces of ducts
Rodent droppings and dead insects inside ducts
In addition, recent construction inevitably creates dust you don’t want in circulation. We recommend cleaning after a big remodel job.
