Why You Should Think About Getting Your Air Ducts Cleaned
When Total Chimney Care technicians clean and service our clients’ chimney systems , part of what we’re working toward is the cleanliness of the air you breathe. If your chimney isn’t venting properly, anything from smoke to small particles and dangerous colorless, odorless carbon monoxide could make its way into your living area, and potentially into your lungs. We regularly clean your flue and inspect your chimney system once a year to ensure that you’re working with a chimney system that’s doing its job, and doing it right, so you can breathe easy.
Chimneys and air duct systems have a lot in common in that sense — regular professional attention helps you know that you’re doing everything you can to keep the air circulating in your home free of harmful materials. That’s part of why, in addition to servicing chimney systems, Total Chimney Care technicians also clean air ducts and dryer vents.
What Could Be In My Air Ducts?
Every home and every duct system differs, but more often than not, some unwanted materials end up lingering in your vents without regular cleaning. Those could be dust or dirt, bacteria, germs, even mold spores, and having air circulating through dirty vents can make allergies act up, make respiratory issues worsen for those already suffering with conditions like asthma, and in general just negatively affect the quality of the air you breathe.
If you’ve had issues with leaks or with vermin, it’s all the more reason to have your vents looked at, since the possibility of mold spore growth or the presence of animal waste is higher.
How Does Total Chimney Care Clean My Air Ducts?
Our trained technicians use high-tech tools to ensure that your vents are thoroughly cleaned. That includes EPA-approved HEPA-filtration vacuums and diligent disposal techniques that get the dirty stuff out of your system, and out of your home.
