Cleaning your home’s air ducts is important to keeping the overall air quality where it should be. HVAC air duct cleaning gets rid of excess dust that can exacerbate allergies, asthma, and respiratory illnesses. It also extends the life of your HVAC system and makes breakdowns less likely. Since this is such an important job, you might be tempted to do it yourself, but there are a few good reasons why you should contact professionals to help with this important task.
Without the Right Equipment, Cleaning Isn’t Effective
To reach the deepest areas of ductwork and around all the corners, you’re going to need a professional quality vacuum that can reach every nook and cranny. There are other specialist tools that you’ll need, too, and one of the dangers in doing this yourself is that, instead of actually removing the dust, you’ll either stir it up to resettle elsewhere or simply drive it further back into the system.
If you drive the dust deeper into your HVAC ductwork, it can build up on the HVAC system itself. This creates a potential fire hazard through overheating. Even if the HVAC system doesn’t actually catch fire, operating in an overheated condition will shorten its lifespan.
When you work with a professional duct cleaning company, you can be certain they have all the specialized equipment needed to clean every nook and cranny within your ductwork thoroughly. You can also be sure that the equipment will be more powerful than a home vacuum cleaner, meaning that smaller and more difficult-to-remove particles can be addressed.
It’s Easy to Make a Mess
Whenever you clean ductwork, there’s a potential for a big mess. If you don’t properly protect your home before the work begins and don’t know how to use the equipment correctly, you could end up with dust, dirt, pet dander, and all kinds of grime over everything in the house.
While you might think it’s not a big deal to clean the floors and wipe off the counters, it’ll be a lot more difficult to get all that grime off of every wall, off the ceiling, and out of all the textiles, such as office chairs and couches. Our technicians know how to set up and conduct cleaning in a way that protects your home from dirt and grime.
It’s Possible to Hurt Yourself, the HVAC, or Even the House
Professional technicians have undergone training and know exactly how to reach all the ductwork areas, even in tight spaces or around attic beams. Without this experience, it’s possible that you could fall and hurt yourself, damage a structural component of your home, or tear up the ductwork as you try to clean it, which will require expensive repairs to fix.
