Air Duct & HVAC System Cleaning:
The air you’re breathing could be making you sick!
Despite routinely replacing filters, your home’s HVAC system gets dirty with regular everyday use, and unfortunately, your air ducts are a favorite hiding place for dust, dirt, and allergens to linger. That dust and dirt is filled with contaminants and air pollutants that can not only harm your indoor air quality, but can also cause your system to work harder. This not only increases your energy bills, but it can also significantly shorten the lifespan of your system.
Your air ducts are the lungs of your home!
Here at Gesundheit Air Quality we like to refer to your ductwork and HVAC system as the lungs of your home. Everything it breathes you breathe. Professional Air Duct and HVAC System cleaning is the best way to start. Air duct cleaning can substantially improve the air quality in your home or office. It also helps with the overall cleaning of your home or office by greatly reducing the dust and pollen particles floating around and landing on your floors and furniture. Depending on the location of your return air vents, your air duct system can also be full of pet hair and dander.
How do bacteria enter your air ducts?
Sometimes, mice, squirrels, and insects can make their way into your air ducts. Naturally, these vermin leave behind all kinds of bacteria. When rodents find their way into your ductwork, they make nests and leave droppings behind, sending tiny fecal spores sweeping along the ducts. These spores can then make their way into your home and contaminate the quality of the air you breathe.
Rodents in your ductwork?
Unfortunately, These rodents like to take up residence in ductwork, and will chew their way in, or find some sort of unsealed access. Once they move in, your home’s duct work becomes a personal highway for rodents, as they make their way all around your home. If rodents are in your ductwork, you will likely see droppings, you may find chewed up materials or unpleasant smells, all of which indicate an infestation.
