Why Is Air Duct Cleaning So Important

Just as the surfaces in your home get full of dust and dirt in time, the same goes for your air ducts. With daily life activities, numerous contaminants and air pollutants are created in your home. This can include pet dander, bacteria, dust, skin cells, mold, cigarette smoke, and even the odd chemical. Over time, all that will result in a major build-up of contaminants in your ductwork, which is why air duct cleaning is so important.

Contaminants Left by Rodents and Insects

Adding to all of the aforementioned, you need to take into consideration the likes of insects and rodents that have a habit of taking up residence in your ductwork. They will often chew their way in, or find access through holes, and once they have access, your home’s ductwork will be used as a highway around your home. When rodents find access to your ductwork, they will then proceed to make nests and leave behind droppings, in addition to other telltale signs that include chewed materials, foul smells, and various bacteria. All will contaminate the very air that you breathe.

Filthy Ducts Could Cause Health Issues

Dirty air ducts will also contribute to health issues, more so for people who already suffer from respiratory conditions, asthma, auto-immune disorders, or other allergies. In fact, the EPA states that poor interior air quality will bring on asthma attacks, and will also increase a person’s risk of contracting pneumonia and other upper respiratory issues. Indoor air pollutants can cause irritated nose, eyes, and throat, in addition to fatigue, headaches, and dizziness. This is even true for people who don’t suffer from allergies.
