It’s a question that homeowners in Hillsborough, and all over, seem to find themselves thinking about: what exactly is duct cleaning, what does it do, and why is it important for me and my home?
We’re here to help answer those questions to make the decision-making process a bit easier next time you’re considering ways to boost your home’s air quality.
What is duct cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the extermination of dirt, articles and debris inside your home’s air distribution system (the ductwork). Duct cleaning typically involves special tools, vacuums and a process to free dirt and debris clinging to the interior walls of the ducts before being eliminated with a powerful vacuum system. This varies from your routine air conditioner or furnace maintenance service that focuses mostly on your heating and air conditioning equipment.
What does ducting cleaning do?
Duct cleaning can help your home and indoor air quality in a variety of ways, like:
- Removing dirt and dust from your home and the air you breathe
- Eliminating germs and bacteria produced by excess dirt
- Increasing your heating and air conditioning system’s energy efficiency
- Potentially easing the symptoms of seasonal allergies inside the home
