Have A Lot Of Allergies? Hire A Air Duct Cleaning Service

If you have a lot of allergies you likely sneeze a lot when outside around pollen, hay, and more. You can do some things, however, to make your allergies feel much better while you are at home. One of these things is to hire a duct cleaning service. Below is more information about this service to help you understand it better.

How Ductwork Cleaning Works

When your ducts are dirty, dust and other debris will spread throughout your home when your HVAC unit is running. This happens because the air will pick up this dust and debris before it starts coming out of your vents. There is not much you can do about this on your own.

A duct cleaning service can help you, as they can make sure all your ducts are clean. The service uses a variety of equipment to do this. One is a vacuum, which is very powerful and can remove all the dust and debris from inside the ducts. Wet vacuums and hand-held vacuums are often used for this. 

A duct cleaning service uses imaging devices, which includes cameras and mirrors, to see the inside of the ductwork. This allows them to see how dirty your ductwork is. Some services use cameras that are run by a remote control. This camera has wheels that they place into the duct and the camera then travels through your duct system. 

How Duct Cleaning Helps

Besides removing dust and debris duct cleaning can also help you with your allergies in other ways, including:

Removes Mold

If the duct cleaning company finds any mold inside the ductwork, they will use special sanitizers and chemicals. This kills the mold and cleans it from the ductwork. This is important as mold spores will get inside your home. A sanitizer can be used to make the ductwork smell better after using the chemicals. 

If there is a lot of high humidity where you live, this can cause mold to grow inside your duct. Having poor ventilation will cause moisture from the humidity to get trapped inside the ductwork. This gives the mold the perfect place to grow.  

Finds Damage

While the duct cleaning company is cleaning your duct system, they will find any damage that your ductwork may have. For example, there may be rips in the ductwork or the ductwork may be coming apart at the seams.

Having damage to your ductwork will cause your HVAC system to run much longer which will cause even more debris, etc., to get inside your home. The duct cleaning service can contact an HVAC company to come to your home and repair your ductwork for you.
