Is Duct Cleaning Really Necessary?
If it's in your ducts, it's in your lungs
It is no wonder that the Allergy and Asthma Association recommends duct cleaning as one of the actions you can take to ensure better indoor air quality when you see the contaminants that are trapped in ducts:
- Dust, dust mites, dust mite droppings
- Mold, mildew and fungi
- Rodent droppings and dead or live rodents
- Pet hair and pet dander
- Insect remains
- Decayed or dried food particles
- Drywall dust or particles
- Carpet fibers
- Construction or renovation particles
- Foreign objects like toys
When some people dismiss air duct cleaning as a necessary part of a home's hygiene and maintenance it just doesn't make sense. When you stop to think about it, it would be like saying that homeowners do not need to dust their homes, allowing for this dirt to build up year after year. If you could see the contaminants in your ducts, it wouldn't take much convincing. Let us show you, either with these pictures, or using an infrared camera in your home.
