Getting your air ducts professionally cleaned will remove contaminants and dirt residues, increase the system's ventilation capacity and reduce your energy spending. If you're looking for ways to improve your indoor air quality, then check out our helpful tips below.
Prevent dirt from contaminating your ductworks
There are certain steps you can take to minimize air duct contamination. Use the highest efficiency air filter recommended by your HVAC manufacturer. Make sure to change these filters regularly, especially if they get clogged often. Also, during any construction or renovation works, seal off supply and return registers, and don’t turn on your HVAC system until all the dust and debris have been removed.
Make sure there is no infestation inside your ducts
Although dirty air ducts aren’t the only source of pollutants in your home, they play a major role. Any signs of infestation such as visible mold growth, vermin, rodent, or insect population raise health concerns for you and your family. If any of these conditions exist, you need to address their causes before you choose to hire an air duct cleaning professional.
