Spring is here, and it won’t be long before many homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area will be turning their air conditioners on for the first time this season. Are your ducts clean, or are they filled with dust, dirt, and other debris – perhaps even rodent droppings? While it may sound disgusting, the particulates in your ducts could be making their way into your home. Your duct work is also the perfect breeding environment for mold, mildew, and other contaminants. At Ortiz Duct Cleaning, we want homeowners to understand the importance of having your ducts cleaned on occasion!
It’s easy for homeowners to forget about the duct system, since it’s something you don’t usually see. Here are a few reasons Bay Area homeowners need duct cleaning:
Fewer health issues. When the air is contaminated with dust, mold particles, or other contaminants which may be delivered to your indoor spaces through the duct work, it can aggravate certain conditions such as asthma and allergies.
Improved indoor air quality. Today’s high efficiency doors, windows, and insulation are great for saving you money, but the fact is they decrease the amount of air that flows in and out of your home – in other words, there is less fresh air circulation or ventilation. This leads to poor indoor air quality. When you have your ducts cleaned, you can at least reduce the allergens, dust, and other contaminants that may be making their way in.
Vermin and insects can carry diseases. Yes, it’s nasty – but even the tiniest holes or cracks in your duct work allow for entrance.
Dust, dirt, cobwebs, and other debris can all build up, causing clogs – and more dust inside your home, which you may notice on furnishings.
If it has been a while since you have had your ducts cleaned, or if you’re like many Bay Area homeowners and have never had them cleaned, it’s time!
