Air ducts are essential for every home because they distribute cold or warm air throughout the home. They are also used to ventilate homes, removing stale air and pumping in clean air from the outside. While ducts are essential for a comfortable home, some people don’t pay much attention to the care and maintenance of their ductwork, and this can cause problems.
When your ducts pump in air from the outside, fine dust particles often go with the air flow. This is fine at the beginning since small amounts of dust usually settle in the ductwork and do not reach the interior of the home. But, if this happens over an extended period of time and the ductwork is not regularly cleaned, these dust particles will accumulate and eventually enter the home, causing health and respiratory problems.
Although duct cleaning requires a professional HVAC technician, there are a few things you can do on your own to clean your air ducts and keep the air in your home dust-free. One thing you can do is clean the duct grilles and covers of your ductwork. It won't remove all the dust from your ductwork, but it will help remove some of the layers of dust that get blown into and out of your home. You can also use your standard vacuum cleaner to suck out any dust that's within reach.
If you have left your duct system unattended for a long period of time, dust and other contaminants, like mice and bird droppings, spider webs, and even mold or mildew, can be found in it. Because of this, you should always leave duct cleaning to the professionals at Taylor Refrigeration and AC.
