Why Duct Cleaning Makes a Huge Difference for Your Indoor Air Quality

The air you breathe is more important than just about anything in your home. Right now, there’s a lot of particulate matter floating around in your home, and we know that because the average US home has about 4-9x more pollutants in their home’s indoor air than the air right outside their homes.

It’s one of the reasons we offer duct cleaning in Pasco County, FL–because we know just how important it is to your overall indoor air quality. Let’s talk about just what’s coming out of those vents.

Reduces Dust Entering Your Air Supply

Dust builds up in your air ducts over time, but it’s not a fast enough progression that you need to worry about it on an annual basis. That’s one of the reasons why it’s not considered to be an annual maintenance type of task. You only need air duct cleaning once every 3-5 years before it’s bad enough that it’s a problem.

Your lungs have a natural system to remove debris and dust that you breathe in. It traps it within mucus, and then turns it into bodily waste. But it’s not 100% perfect, and it still takes energy for your body to filter out particles and dust in the air. Give your respiratory system a break and reduce the amount of dust in your air supply in the first place.

Removes Unpleasant Odors

Some odors are caused by dust. Dust can trap odors, or host mold spores that continue to grow, add more pollutants to your air space, and pose health problems that can spring up. Odors don’t just appear out of thin air; they’re sourced from something, and oftentimes that’s dust in your air ducts.

Think of cleaning your ductwork as providing less breeding grounds for odor-causing bacteria in the first place. While we just think of odors as being unpleasant, when you really think about everything that causes these odors in the first place, it only makes sense to remove the source.

Air Filters Clog Less Frequently

Right now, your air conditioner and furnace help pull debris and some particulate matter out of the air. Well, the air filters for these machines do, at least. When you switch yours out every 30 days, how dirty is it? Take a good hard look at it and think about the fact that everything trapped within that filter (and then a lot more) was floating around in your air over the last month.

With air duct cleaning, less dust and debris enter your air space in the first place. You’ll actually notice a change in how much your filters trap every 30 days, showing that less matter was in the air throughout the last month.
