Why You Shouldn’t Try to Clean Your Own Air Ducts

why hire professional clean air ductsIndoor air quality is an important factor that influences people’s overall health. Airborne pathogens, dirt, and mold can get into heating and cooling ducts and be recirculated when air is pushed through the ducts and into your home. This can aggravate allergies and asthma. Mold spores in the air can also cause a host of other health problems.

One way to reduce environmental contamination inside your home is to have the HVAC ducts cleaned. A contractor can remove dirt, dust, and other pollutants from your air ducts, diffusers, grilles, cooling coils, heat exchangers, fan motors, and drip pans. This can significantly improve the quality of the air in your home and can reduce the symptoms of members of your family who suffer from allergies or asthma.

Cleaning the air ducts is especially important if there is mold inside the house. Mold in the air ducts can be recirculated continuously and can cause serious respiratory and other health problems.

You should not try to clean your air ducts yourself. The job requires specialized equipment, such as vacuums with tall attachments, cameras to see inside the ductwork, and other tools. It also requires knowledge and skills to remove all of the debris and contaminants without missing any or causing damage to the ductwork. You should always hire a professional contractor to clean the air ducts in your home. Be sure to hire someone who has specific experience cleaning air ducts in HVAC systems.
