The air you are breathing in your house could be making you sick. Your duck system functions as the respiratory system of your home. When it becomes contaminated and congested, it should be cleaned so it can 'breathe' normally and efficiently.
If you answer yes to any of the below questions, it may be time to have your air duct system professionally cleaned:
- Does anyone in the house have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems?
- Is there anyone in the home that smokes inside the house?
- Does anyone in your home suffer from headaches, nasal congestion, or other sinus problems?
- Are there pets with dander such as dogs or cats that live in your home?
- Does your house smell musty or stale when your heating or air conditioning unit is running?
- Have you held your hand near the air conditioning vent and it doesn't seem like there is enough flow or air coming out?
Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander as well as other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time the air conditioner runs. These contaminants build up inside the ductwork over time and can make your duct system an ideal breeding ground for mold spores, bacteria, fungus, and other microbes.
Family members that suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory ailments, as well as children and the elderly, are vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollutants.
