As winter finally gives up its hold on us this year, it is time to make a fresh start with a thorough spring cleaning. While you may be focused on pulling down your window dressings or deep cleaning your rugs, there are hidden areas that should be on your spring cleaning list. The air ducts in your home may be hiding mold, mildew and other contaminants that get spewed out into your home once the air conditioning is on 24/7. Your dryer vents are also a hazard and need to be added to your cleaning “to-do list.”
Dangers of Dirty Air Ducts
Air ducts are notorious for collecting unhealthy debris. Moisture can collect in your air ducts, which makes them at risk for fungo to grow within them. Dust mites, dander, pollen, bugs and even rodent feces can be collected in your air ducts. Your HVAC air filter can remove some of these contaminants but not all. These spores and particles may be floating in your air and entering the lungs of your family, which can increase the risk of allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues.
Risks of Full Dryer Vents
Lint and other combustible debris coat the inside of your dryer vent that releases moist air to the outside. These vents can become full of combustible particles that can easily catch fire. Cleaning your dryer vent at least once a year should be a priority as these dirty vents are one of the top causes of house fires in the U.S. To make it easier to remember, add dryer vent and air duct cleaning to your yearly spring cleaning list to ensure both these hidden hazards are thoroughly cleaned by a professional.
