The air that circulates through your home’s heating and cooling system passes through the ductwork at least twice each day. Air ducts accumulate dust, allergens, pet dander, mold and other pollutants which can worsen allergies and asthma, contribute to poor indoor air quality, and increase energy costs. An Air Duct Cleaning Centennial service can help your family feel healthier and your home feel fresher.
A small number of products are registered by the EPA as chemical biocides to kill bacteria (germs) and fungus (mold) and prevent future biological growth in air ducts. However, these products are intended to be applied only to the smooth surface of unlined sheet metal air ducts and must not be permitted to come into contact with fiber glass duct board or insulated fiberglass ducts. There is considerable controversy over the necessity and wisdom of introducing such chemical biocides into the living environment.
Moisture in ductwork promotes the growth of mildew and mold which can affect indoor air quality, damage the integrity of the duct system, and cause health risks for your family. Dirty ducts can also reduce the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling systems, increasing utility bills.
The average American spends 90% of their time indoors and research indicates that our indoor air quality is significantly less than what it could be. Our homes are often dirty, odorous and polluted.
Our stale indoor air is caused by a variety of factors, including household cleaners, paint fumes, pets, tobacco use, and food preparation. These factors can contribute to a buildup of dust, dirt, and fungi that causes musty odors.
Dirty, clogged air ducts can contribute to the onset of allergies and asthma in children, aggravate respiratory conditions in seniors and people with chronic illnesses, and even lead to a shortened life span in people with cardiovascular disease. A professional duct cleaning service removes dirt, dust, allergens and other pollutants from the conditioned air in your home, which can alleviate symptoms and improve overall indoor air quality.
