Don’t Get Your Dander Up! The Importance of Duct Cleaning

Through normal occupation in a home, residents generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system. Although dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, they may be contributing to larger health issues or may be harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions.
Duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems, but never has there been conclusive studies that demonstrate particle levels in homes increase because of dirty air ducts. This is because much of the dirt in the air adheres to duct surfaces and doesn’t really enter the home. Although there is no evidence that a light amount of household dust or other particulate matter in air ducts poses and risk to your health, the duct system can serve as a means to distribute these contaminants at home.
You should consider having your air ducts cleaned if there is visible mold growth inside metal sheet ducts or on other components of your HVAC system. Also if ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris that are actually released to the home. And if ducts are infested with rodents, insects, or other vermin.
HVAC service providers like Western Canadian Furnace Company LTD in Calgary, provides the most effective methods in duct cleaning.
