Duct Cleaning Service for Indianapolis, Indiana
Hidden behind your walls, and generally ignored, your air ducts are the vital pathways that move warm or cool air throughout your home. Your air ducts are working behind the scenes nearly year-round, whenever your air conditioner or furnace is running. Like any other part of your home, dust and debris can collect in the air ducts of your HVAC system. However, the process of duct cleaning is much more complicated than dusting your furniture. Duct cleaning removes harmful contaminants to provide a cleaner, more comfortable environment for your home.
The Importance of Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning improves the quality of the air in your home. Have you ever seen all the stuff floating in the air in the sunbeams of a window? That stuff is 80% dead skin cells and hundreds of allergy and illness-causing particles and contaminants that are being circulated through your HVAC system. A furnace filter will help to catch some of the pollutants, some of it will still settle in your air ducts, while the rest of it floats through your home until it gets pulled back into the airflow, making your air ducts dirtier still. With much of our time spent indoors, we’re breathing a lot of impurities from our home’s conditioned air.
Duct cleaning includes cleaning the supply and return air ducts, registers, grills and diffusers, heat exchangers, and cooling coils. A William’s Comfort Air duct cleaning technician works with specialized tools to remove dirt and debris in your airflow systems. The air is also sanitized.
What’s really in that “ breath of fresh air” coming from your air ducts?
- Dead skin cells… meal of choice for dust mites
- Dust… A 1500 square foot space generates about 40 pounds of dust every year.
- Dust mites… On a single speck of dust, there can be as many as 40,000 dust mites and many other bacteria and viruses. 50% of the weight of an average pillow is just dust mites. EW!
- Mildew, mold, fungi, germs, bacteria, and viruses… Air ducts are an ideal habitat for these
- Smoke from tobacco products like cigarettes and cigars, which contains over 3600 cancer-causing toxins. The toxins can cling to clothing and other fabrics and then release themselves when we enter other buildings.
- Chemical gases (formaldehyde, benzene, etc.) from new carpets, furniture, dry cleaning, and construction… That “new” smell from your new carpet, freshly painted walls, remodeled room, etc. is really the out-gassing of the chemicals used to treat these products.
- Insects and other bugs… Insect and bug feces is a powerful allergen. In an extensive study by the New England Journal of Medicine, more than 50% of the home had cockroach infestations. Children living in these homes were more than three times as likely to be hospitalized for asthma.
- Areosols, Household cleaners, insecticides, pesticides… We poison our own air with the use of these products.
- Pet dander (skin flakes, saliva and urine ) is a common trigger for allergies and asthma. Plus, pet hair or fur can collect pollen, mold spores and other outdoor allergens that further contaminates the air.
