Benefits of Duct Cleaning for your Twin Cities and St. Paul residential homes and apartments.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning
Elimination of Bacteria, Molds, and Fungi
Deep in the darkness of your ductwork, anyone can grow a fine crop of mold, mildew, and bacteria with only a minimal base of debris buildup. The fact is, every Twin Cities or St. Paul home has some level of biomatter within the ducts. Allowing the debris and contaminants to accumulate gives the bacteria and molds the perfect environment in which to prosper. Home Furnace Duct and Fireplace Cleaning professional cleaning of the ducts and administering an OSHA- or EPA-approved germicide will dramatically reduce the occurrence of their presence. All products we use are designed for residential procedures and are completely safe. MSDS sheets are available upon request.
Cleaner Living Environment and a Reduction in Housework The longer the ductwork is allowed to go without a professional cleaning, the more debris and dust accumulate internally. All that then recirculates every time the system goes on. As the air is being pushed through the ducts, it spews dust from every vent throughout your home. Having the ducts cleaned every two years reduces the circulation of all the trapped debris within. The result is less time spent on household chores like dusting. Savings on Heating and Cooling Bills Your heating and air-conditioning system should be cleaned, checked, and lubricated every two years. Removal of rust, carbon, and debris from the interior components such as the burners, blowers, heat exchangers, and pilot assembly will increase the efficiency of your system. The absence of the debris allows the air/fuel ratio to be more correct, keeping the operational costs and carbon monoxide levels at a minimum. In short, the longer a furnace is allowed to go without a cleaning, the higher the carbon monoxide levels and energy consumption. Fresher, Healthier Air Every home in America circulates household dust, dust mites and their feces, molds, bacteria, and pollutants from the ductwork. This unhealthy air promotes illness and triggers allergic reactions. Removal of these contaminants on a two-year basis improves the quality of the air in your home or office. Increased System Efficiency Practically, all ducting systems have contaminants clinging to the inside walls. Commonly, 1/4″ to 1″ of unwanted buildup can occur in just a matter of a few years inside your ductwork. This process slows down the airflow (drag coefficient) through the ducts and pushes the furnace/cooling system to work much harder than it is designed. Relief from Allergens Eighty percent of the debris we call “household dust” is actually shed human skin. We can generate up to five pounds of this each year. The other smaller components include carpet fibers, blown-in soil, pet dander, dust mites (which eat skin flakes) and their feces and miscellaneous pollutants. Scientific research is showing a direct link to allergy problems associated with dust mites. The more skin shed, the more dust mites and more allergies. Clean ductwork significantly minimizes the recirculation of household dust.
