Commercial Reasons to Keep Your Air Ducts Clean Air Duct Cleaning in Chesapeake

Isn't the quality of your indoor air as important as the quality of the air you breathe outside?  There are indoor irritants in the air you breathe like pollen, dust, and pet dander that encompass more than simply changing your equipment's air filter.

These irritants and contaminants collect in your air duct system and can only be removed with scheduled cleanings.  You should consider it as a part of your HVAC maintenance and a vital part of ensuring your employees health and your business cleanliness.  Here are a few reasons why you should keep your ducts cleaned.

  • Clogging of the ducts- Irritants like dust can clog your air ducts causing your HVAC equipment to work less effectively.  The clogging can also cause health issues.
  • You may be losing efficiency- If your air ducts are clogged, your equipment will be forced to work harder to maintain your temperature settings.  This results in higher utility bills and an inefficient system.
  • Presence of mold- Mold is hazardous to your health.  Mold can aggravate or cause health problems like asthma and allergies. An odor like the smell of dirty socks coming from your air vents can indicate the presence of mold in your HVAC system.
  • Presence of trapped critters- Occasionally rodents, birds or insects can become entrapped in the air duct system.  Any odor coming from the air vent system requires attention.
