3 Things You Should Know About Duct Cleaning

Posted by Lisa Pixley

Many homeowners never think about the state of their ductwork. They aren’t in your direct view, so when you are cleaning the house you don’t give them a second thought. And while cleaning the ducts is something that only a professional should do, you may want to give it some consideration. Cleaning ductwork regularly may have a positive impact on your health and the well being of the people in your home or building. Here are a few more facts you should know about duct cleaning.

There are a lot of scams out there

One thing you should know about duct cleaning is that there have been many instances of scam artists baiting customers with low prices only to charge much more in the end for a subpar (or completely fake) service. In fact, Dateline NBC uncovered one such operation a few years ago, in which a technician did almost nothing to even attempt to clean the ducts, attempting to con an unsuspecting woman who knew nothing about the task of cleaning ducts. Check with the Better Business Bureau to ensure you are working with a credible company.

You may have mold in your ducts

The HVAC system may collect mold over time since moisture often pools up in the indoor portions of the blower. Condensation can develop due to changing temperatures and humidity in the air, and if it doesn’t drain properly, you may have a mold issue on your hands. Duct cleaning can eliminate mold and help you to find a solution for this issue in the future.

Dirty ducts may cost you extra every month

Dirt in the ductwork can create friction that makes it difficult for the system to cool or heat your building efficiently. Cleaning the ducts may lower your bills and keep your air conditioning and heating systems from developing problems so easily.
