Those who suffer from chronic sinus pressure understand how allergens can make these symptoms worse. Many allergens, including dust, pet hair and mold are in your house, although you may not be able to see them. These irritants build up over time inside your home’s ductwork. Every time you turn on your heat or air conditioning, the system blows the allergens right back into the air inside your home. Cleaning your air ducts can reduce your allergy symptoms by removing the accumulation of irritants inside ductwork.
How Does Duct Cleaning Help Reduce Allergens?
During a cleaning, the dirt, dust, mold, pet dander, hair and other allergens will be removed from the entire ductwork. While homeowners can keep the external vents clean to minimize material trapped deep inside the ducts, it is not possible to prevent it entirely. Professional cleaning gets to the areas you cannot see. By removing the contaminants, air quality can be improved by preventing the recirculation of allergens back into your home’s environment. While duct cleaning cannot eliminate your underlying allergies, it will improve the condition of the air in your home.
Additional Benefits of Duct Cleaning
By investing in a duct cleaning, you are improving the air flow to the vents. This helps reduce the strain on your heating and cooling systems. By keeping your intake vents free of dust and obstructions between duct cleanings, you can further reduce the amount of stress placed on your HVAC unit.
How Often Should Ducts Be Cleaned?
Your duct cleaning schedule depends on several things, including whether you have pets, if there are additional irritants such as cigarette smoke and the condition of your heating and cooling system. If you are a person living with allergies, you may need more frequent duct cleanings than other homeowners.
