It’s about time the weather warms up! I was afraid the cold season would linger around like a friend who’s oblivious to the fact that they’ve overstayed their welcome. While the increased temperature will bring more daylight hours and fun in the sun, it will also be bringing with it the need to run the air conditioner to keep things comfortable inside, and now is the perfect time to make sure your air ducts are clean and up for the task.
Would you know if your ducts looked like this?
There’s a lot of stuff that can build up in air ducts over time. Dust, debris, lint and even mold and even insects have all been found inside neglected air ducts, and they can all play an impact on your health, as well as how well your air and heating system operate. Having dirty or clogged air ducts causes a loss in air pressure, making the whole system work harder to push the air around – not to mention that the air itself will contain particles of whatever is building up/growing inside the ducts.
Luckily for you, and anyone living with you, we’re here to help with our professional air duct cleaning services. We can make sure your air ducts don’t look like the one above, but instead look like this.
See the difference?
One of the main reasons why the air quality inside your house can be worse than the air outside is because of what’s being circulated in it. By ensuring your air ducts are clean, you can make the air inside your home cleaner and healthier at the same time.

With the country seeming to be more focused on their health and that of their families, you’d have thought that there would be more attention on the quality of the air inside our homes. This, however, doesn’t seem to be the case very much at all.
Apparently, they’re not as important as you thought.
An E.P.A. study done a few years back showed that the air quality in the average home can be up to five, count ‘em, five times dirtier than the air outside. With figures like this, it’s surprising that most haven’t even thought about the air in their home’s be dirty, or unhealthy. Luckily, there are a few easy steps you can take to help the air in your home be as clean and healthy as possible.
First of all, be sure to open your windows. Sounds like common sense, huh? Well, you’d be surprised. One of the main factors in unclean indoor air is that the air doesn’t get circulated enough and begins to stagnate. This is easily solved by opening a few windows and getting some fresh air in.
Another suggestion to increasing the quality of your homes air is to get your air ducts cleaned. If you’re like most people, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “I’ve never thought about having them cleaned before…” If this is you, then you definitely need to have them cleaned. Over time, gunk and debris build up and clog the airways. They also get circulated throughout every room of your home. Oh, and the gunk I mentioned also includes possibly mold and even rodents and other animals, just so you know.
The last bit of advice we can give is to have an air purification system installed. They’re not that complicated anymore, and are pretty easy to obtain. Essentially, it’s an ultraviolet light that kills germs and bacteria in the air before it has a chance to get you sick. In fact, if you were to inhale one of these dead microbes, it would only serve to increase your immunity to them in the future.
