Even a little bit of mold, hair, dirt and other debris in your home can accumulate in the air and irritate your breathing. However, chances are, you don’t give much thought to cleaning the air ducts in your home.
Air ducts are the pathways for cooling or heating your residence. In other words, they serve as lungs for your home by delivering and removing air. Naturally, these ducts can collect dust and debris that may pose a threat to the health of you and your family.
Dust mites, mold and other allergens often found in air ducts can trigger allergies or asthma. Such a warning is of particular concern to the nearly 25 million American adults and children with asthma, and the approximately 50 million who have allergic rhinitis or hay fever.
It’s Time to Think about the Amount of Dust in Your Home
Each year, the average six-room home is said to collect 40 pounds of dust and hundreds of thousands of microscopic organisms that feed off the grime found inside air ducts. Although regularly cleaning your home’s air ducts cannot guarantee improved breathing, common sense says that removing any particles that you may be sensitive to is a pretty good idea.
However, these galvanized-steel ducts cannot be cleaned without specialized tools. The good news is that Stanley Steemer has both the equipment and expertise to optimize the air that you breathe and the performance of your heating, ventilation and cooling system.
Certified professionals at Stanley Steemer use a high-power blower to agitate and dislodge debris in your air ducts and a heap vacuum that draws the dirt and allergens back into the truck and out of your home. Every area of your ventilation system is examined, from the blower motor and evaporator coil to the vent covers. Stanley Steemer will also inspect and clean your dryer vents, which are a leading cause of fires when clogged.
