Why Should you get your Ducts Cleaned?
The public’s awareness of the importance of air quality in their home or business has dramatically increased in the last decade. These concerns are not just limited to mold; there is also concern about the general number of particulates in the air especially where asthma, COPD or other respiratory issues are of concern. One of the best things you can do to improve the air quality of your Wichita home or business is to get a duct cleaning. Besides improving the quality of air, it also improves the efficiency of your HVAC system and can help lengthen your systems lifespan.
Your HVAC systems ductwork can accumulate all kind of soil and that affects the number of particulates in the air as it comes out of your supply registers and eventually breath. Of course, dust and dirt are the most common accumulations of soil but other common sources are pet hair, smoke/soot from cooking or smoking, dust from home renovation projects and of course in some cases mold can be found growing on the accumulated soil. Other items can also accumulate in your ductwork that you might not expect such as scented candles, cleaning products and other off gassing volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Duct Cleaning removes these contaminants from ductwork which stops them from cycling through your air and HVAC system but cleaning your ducts takes more than just wiping the registers. Here at SERVPRO we always strive to employ the most effective processes.
All our duct cleaning is done using HEPA quality duct cleaning system. We agitate the contaminants with air and brushes from the vent side and hook up using negative pressure down by your HVAC unit. Negative pressure is very important since without it you might be simply loosening the contaminants in your HVAC system and end up with worse air quality! Duct cleanings can also help with any mysterious odors in some cases.
