How Professional HVAC Duct Cleaning Can Benefit You

6/17/2022 (Permalink)

Having your ducts cleaned and the HVAC system serviced regularly can keep it running more efficiently and substantially longer.

Having your HVAC ducts cleaned may not be a typical concern during life’s day-to-day, but central ventilation systems directly affect indoor air quality. Having an expert regularly service and inspect the motor, filters, coils, and other parts will ensure the system is running efficiently.

Five Benefits of Professional Duct Cleaning

HVAC ducts can be cleaned in a variety of ways, but not all are as effective enough to be considered satisfactory by SERVPRO standards. Our technicians are Here to Help® and have the training and commercial equipment necessary to provide the professional results you deserve and expect.

  1. Improved Air Quality

Many ventilation systems pull in a wide variety of contaminants, such as dust, microbes, mold spores, and pollutants. Once these contaminants make their way inside your home, there's usually not enough airflow to circulate them back outside. Dirt and dust can build up throughout your ventilation system, causing wear and tear resulting in inefficient operation and unnecessary damage.

  1. Mold Prevention

Heating and cooling ducts provide conditions that are great breeding grounds for mold growth. When you schedule routine professional maintenance, excess moisture and the organic materials that create that welcoming environment for mold spores are cleared away. Duct cleaning and disinfection steps may also prevent unpleasant musty and mildewy odors, as well as future mold growth.

  1. Reduced Heating and Cooling Bills

When your ventilation system is kept clean and well-maintained, the airflow remains consistent, components don't have to work as hard, and the system has an easier time maintaining the desired temperature. When the machinery runs smoothly and doesn't have to work harder than necessary, operation costs are lower, and you save money on your utility bills.

  1. Longer Equipment Life Span

Any type of debris in the heating and cooling system can affect the motors, fans, and other moving parts. This causes grinding and wear that damages those parts. In addition to this direct damage, the entire system will wear down more quickly because of the increased workload as the airflow is impacted. Routine repair and maintenance can greatly extend the service life of the system overall and can prevent a costly total system replacement.

  1. Pest Prevention

Adequate ventilation requires openings that allow for sufficient airflow. Unfortunately, this may also mean that pests have easy access to the ducts. The screening that prevents them from entering these ducts can become damaged and worn as it's exposed to natural elements and fluctuations in temperature. Routine inspections and professional cleaning can catch damage early, and keep insects and rodents from getting in.
