Why You Need to Schedule An Airduct Cleaning For Your Home

Did you know the average six-room home collects 40 pounds of dust each year? Let that sink in for a minute! And no, that new robot vacuum you got for Christmas can’t catch it all. The old saying may be, “What goes up, must come down.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean all the dust in your home lands on the floor or the furniture. Plenty of dust builds up in your air ducts, too, and leaving it there can be harmful to your health.

Why Clean My Air Ducts?

There are many reasons a homeowner should consider bringing in a professional to clean the air ducts. Here are a few common scenarios:

  • If you have pets that shed hair and dander living in your home.
  • If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma.
  • If you recently experienced water contamination or damage to your home or HVAC system.
  • If you’ve just completed any home renovations or remodeling projects.
  • If you recently had your home serviced to remove a vermin or mouse infestation.

In addition to the situations above, professional air duct cleaning helps your heating and air conditioning system run more efficiently, which could trim some money off your monthly utility bills.

How Does It Work?

When you schedule an air duct cleaning with Carpet Tech’s certified technicians, we’ll start by using video technology to inspect the ducts and vents throughout your home. We begin the cleaning process by closing off all of your vents so that the dust and debris exit from a central location. Technicians then use specialized equipment to create a powerful suction that removes the build up.

Our truck-mounted collection system keeps everything contained so there’s no need to worry about a new mess in your home. Once the dust has been removed, we clean each vent and air return in your home to get everything working like new.
