As we naturally spend more time indoors during the winter months, it is imperative to have a healthy indoor environment. The duct system of your home can be seen as the lungs of a house. If they have not been professionally cleaned, the duct system can spread dust and allergens around the home.
It would surprise many homeowners how much debris can be held inside the duct system. Everything from pet hair, dust buildup and even small children’s toys can find their way into the vents. These items allow for blockages or buildups of moisture and debris which impact the air quality of a home.
A professional duct cleaning will systematically clean all the vents and trunk lines to remove any debris. This will create a healthier living space and allow the system to run more efficiently.
Along with a professional cleaning every three years, furnace filters should be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendation, normally every 90 days. Check for debris lodged in vent covers and clean them out before they fall into the ducting.
Carpets are another portion of the home which can negatively impact indoor air quality. Allergens and dirt will trap themselves inside the carpet fibers. Regular vacuuming will help, but can also spread allergens if the vacuum does not have a good filter.
A professional carpet cleaning will reduce the allergens and dirt trapped inside a carpet. The proper detergent and process will increase the visual appearance and the cleanliness of carpet and upholstery.
