Your air ducts are the “lungs” of your home. The supply ducts provide you with hot or cold air, and the return ducts and blower bring the air back to the thermostat so it can be used again. In the process, your home’s air ducts collect a lot of dust, dirt, dander, hair, and other debris. If conditions are humid, mold can also grow in air ducts. All of this debris gets blown back into your home, potentially causing health problems. This is part of the reason the EPA says that indoor air is usually 3 to 5 times dirtier than outdoor air!
By having your air ducts professional cleaned, you can prevent dirt and mold from blowing into your home and affecting your health. With professional air duct cleaning services from Steamway Carpet Cleaning Boulder, getting clean, healthy indoor air is easy and affordable.
Should You Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned?
It is recommended that you have your air ducts cleaned every 3 to 5 years to keep your indoor air quality safe. If you aren’t sure whether you need to have your air ducts cleaned, look for any of these signs that you might benefit from air duct cleaning services:
• Visible mold growth inside the air ducts or on any of its components
• You notice dust or debris coming out of the air ducts
• Your air ducts are infested with rodents or insects
• You or someone in your family suffers from allergies
What to Expect
After calling us for our complete air duct cleaning services, we will dispatch a technician to your home at your convenience. The technician will first inspect the air ducts to diagnose the problem, such as seeing whether rodent droppings are evident or whether there is a clog in the system. Our technicians are true experts and they will be able to properly diagnose the problem, whether it is dust, mold, or infestation.
The air duct cleaning process can vary depending on the extent of the problem. In general though, you can expect our technicians to use high-powered vacuums, scrubbers, and cleaning solutions for killing mold. If a bug or rodent infestation is evident, all droppings and hair will be cleaned out but we recommend calling an exterminator to prevent another problem.
