Breathe Fresh Air: 3 Reasons to Clean Your Air Ducts This Spring
Spring is upon us in Manassas, and allergy sufferers are probably starting to feel the effects of new life blooming outside our doors. If you haven’t already done it, now is the time to hire professionals to clean your air ducts. Here are Crystal Clean Duct Service LLC‘s top three reasons to clean your air ducts this spring.
1. Remove Allergens
It’s a fact of life that with normal everyday use air ducts can get clogged with dust, pet dander, pollen, and other allergens. Did you know that every year the average home accumulates up to 40 lbs of dirt and dust? Yikes! Hire a professional to do air duct cleaning and remove all that has built up over the years. This will improve air quality for everyone, especially those with allergies.
2. Prevent Mold and Germs
A lot of people don’t realize that with constant use, your ducts can retain moisture. Unfortunately, this is the perfect environment for the growth of mold and germs. The EPA says it can be helpful to clean your air ducts to prevent the spread of mold in your home. We’re here to help.
We’re members of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. This means we are dedicated to following tried and true methods of cleaning. There are two ways we accomplish this. For most homes, we use a portable vacuum with HEPA filtration, mechanical agitation tools, and air compressors. For large homes and commercial buildings, we have a specialized American Caddy Vac Truck that has stronger suction. These tools help take care of the mold so your air ducts are ready to do their job.
3. Increase the Efficiency of your HVAC System
Did you know that dirty air ducts can restrict air flow, forcing your HVAC system to do more work? Cleaning your air ducts can lessen the load and help your HVAC system last longer (possibly saving you a bit of money in the long run).
