Fort Lauderdale HVAC Air Duct Cleaning
Are you wondering whether to have the air ducts in your home cleaned? Or are you in search of quality air duct cleaning services in Fort Lauderdale? Read on to find out why you should consider investing in having your air ducts cleaned.
Why clean your air ducts?
It doesn’t matter whether your home uses a heating or cooling system, over time outdoors and indoor pollutants from activities such as cooking, smoking, or cleaning can contaminate your air ducts.
These contaminants do not necessarily enter the living space because much of the dirt in air ducts adheres to duct surfaces. However, you should have your HVAC ducts cleaned if you notice:
- Significant visible mold growth inside your duct system
- Vermin infestation e.g. (rodents or insects)
- Clogged ducts with excessive buildup of dust and debris
- Particles released into the home from your ducts
- A family member suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness
Homes in areas with increased humidity have a higher potential for microbiological growth and spores when moisture is introduced to dust and pollen particles or other debris in ducts.
Should I invest in HVAC duct cleaning?
In recent years, there has been a rise in awareness of the dangers of indoor air pollution. At AdvantaClean of Fort Lauderdale, we help our clients improve their homes’ indoor air quality by cleaning their HVAC ducts.
Although there is little conclusive research on the health benefits of HVAC air duct cleaning, there are many reviews to that effect. Family members who suffer from asthma or allergies have benefited greatly from having their home’s ducts cleaned.
HVAC air duct cleaning offers many benefits for homeowners who are conscious about the health dangers of a dirty or clogged air supply system. For the best effect, ensure that all components of your duct cleaning are performed thoroughly by a qualified provider.
HVAC cleaning in Fort Lauderdale: What to expect
Although service providers typically offer different duct cleaning packages, they all aim to clean the various HVAC system components to improve airflow and quality. This generally includes cleaning the:
Supply and return air registers and ducts
Diffusers and grilles
Heat exchangers (heating and cooling coils)
Condensate drip pans (drain pans)
Fan motor and fan housing
Air handling unit housing
HVAC cleaning service providers use specialized brushes, blowers, and vacuums to clean out the air supply, return, and intake ducts in your home. In cases where your HVAC system is especially blocked or infested with vermin, they may be required to perform light maintenance to ensure that everything is working fine.
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends cleaning your air supply system if you notice the ducts and HVAC unit are contaminated. Although air duct cleaning doesn’t have to be on your regular home maintenance list, cleaning your ducts when necessary can take a load off your neck.
