Are your allergies acting up in your Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, home? The culprit behind your asthma and allergy symptoms could be low indoor air quality. Treat yourself this holiday season to a duct cleaning so you can breathe a little easier.
What Does a Duct Cleaning Entail?
During a duct cleaning service, your HVAC technician will check the condition of your ductwork, looking for leaks or cracks that cause air to escape. Once the inspection is complete, they will clear the buildup of dust, dirt, dander, and allergens that have settled in your ducts.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Here are the following ways duct cleaning can improve the quality of your home’s indoor air:
- Reduces dust: When dust moves throughout your home and your HVAC system, it will often settle in areas of your ductwork, primarily around intakes and vents. Dirty ductwork can also increase the accumulation of dust that settles around your home. A duct cleaning will remove this dust and prevent it from escaping the vents and into your home.
- Reduces allergens and contaminants: Damage to your ductwork can leave open areas where outdoor allergens, such as pollen can come into your home and circulate through your air. Your ductwork will be thoroughly inspected and sealed to help keep these contaminants out.
- Provides better airflow: Clogged, dirty, or damaged ducts can inhibit your system’s airflow. When the airflow is reduced, you will not have the proper circulation through your home.
- Keeps dirt out of your HVAC system: When dust and dirt are in your ductwork, they can circulate back into your HVAC system causing it to run less efficiently and circulate the dirt back into your home.
