Spring is just around the corner! This also means that with it comes spring cleaning! You will work hard to tidy your house, dust, vacuum, and clean out the garage. One of the important items in your home that you may not have thought to clean is your air duct. You may or may not be aware that this is a service that is offered by professionals like TJ’s Chimney Service. Duct cleaning refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, heating and cooling coils, and the air handling unit. Professionals can clean any mold, bacteria, or debris buildup from the system to ensure that everything is working properly. These parts, if not properly maintained, can become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen, and other debris. If moisture is present mold spores can begin to grow and potentially released into the home. This can cause allergies or other health issues if people become exposed to them. The EPA states that it is impossible to generalize about whether or not air duct cleaning in your home would be beneficial. If someone in your household is experiencing unusual symptoms or illness you may want to have your air ducts checked by a professional to ensure that there is no mold or bacteria growing. You may just want to have your air ducts cleaned and checked because over time debris can restrict the system from working properly. TJ’s Chimney Service will clean and remove any dust mites, pet hair, and any household dust or dirt that has been left behind over time or during construction. We also clean all the registers, vents and cold air returns, plus sanitize and deodorize each vent. On average it will take between 2 to 3 hours for a home with 20 vents or less.
