Professional Air Duct Cleaning Services | Greater Raleigh, NC Area
There are going to be things in life that you cannot control. However, your indoor air quality is not one of those things, as ensuring that you are breathing in healthy air is entirely within your grasp. Poor indoor air quality has the potential to expose you to unpleasant odors, and more importantly, jeopardize both you and your family’s health. Professional air duct cleaning can help mitigate these troublesome effects.
How Air Duct Cleaning Helps
Over time, your HVAC ductwork systems gather dust, debris and mold which can severely impact the quality of air in your home or office. It's estimated that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from poor air quality. Dirty air ducts can carry harmful particulates that can affect those suffering from hay fever, asthma, and allergy symptoms.
Additionally, dirty air ducts can impact the efficiency of your HVAC system. Our air duct cleaning services will help improve your furnace and air conditioning efficiency, which helps lower your energy costs.
Cleaning your duct-work can also help eliminate bad odors from smoke or chemicals that may reside in your system.
Another benefit of having your air ducts cleaned is eliminating harmful germs, bacteria and viruses that may lurk in your air vents.
Signs You May Need Professional Air Duct Cleaning
Dirt and dust build-up around your air vents are clear indicators that your ducts need service. You may also notice black lines around the edge of your carpet, also called carbon filtration, which is also a sign your ducts have dust and debris that need removing.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.”
The EPA also states that “indoor air quality can be substantially more polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.” You also spend a greater extent of your time indoors, whether at home or the office, than you do outdoors.
Indoor air quality may be unfavorable in areas of high temperatures and humidity, as well as in homes with inadequate ventilation or significant pollutant sources. The latter, according to the EPA and CPSC, include:
• Tobacco products
• Improperly vented fuel-burning appliances
• Mold and mildew resulting from NC flooding
• Allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and pet dander
• Outdoor sources such as radon, pesticides, and air pollution
• Cabinetry or furniture made from particleboard or fiberboard
• Building materials containing asbestos and other hazardous materials
• VOCs from household cleaning products, personal care products, or hobby supplies
