Your home is supposed to be a haven for you and your loved ones. Despite best efforts to clean, your home may continue to be vulnerable to indoor pollution, if you are ignoring the air duct of your HVAC system or you are deterred by the air duct cleaning cost in Venice.
Do you know that your home can be five times more polluted than the ambient air outside, if you will continue to ignore the air ducts in your home? The Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) says an average home can collect about 40 pounds of pollutants and disease-causing indoor pathogens yearly from this source alone.
Notwithstanding the air duct cleaning cost that you will accrue, consider proper cleaning by professionals if there are good reasons or signs that your ductwork needs cleaning. This would be after renovating your home, especially when there has been a massive amount of dust or there was a removal of lead paint/asbestos. It is also highly recommended when there are signs of molds (or other contaminants), pest infestation, or if a member of the family is suffering from an allergy.
Those pathogens and pollutants can also make your HVAC work harder. Thus, cleaning the ductwork also brings additional benefit – it can make your HVAC work more efficient. Clean ducts can save about 25 to 50 percent of the power used for cooling or heating your home.
Household dust is the biggest culprit for #indoorpollution and allergens. Dust in your home is a combination of dead skin cells from humans and pets, pet fur, kitchen grease, carpet fibre, bacteria, dust mites, fungi, and residue from household chemicals, all mixed with dirt from outside that is tracked in on our feet, or blown in through windows and doors. Of all the allergens, dust mites are the most likely cause of adverse reactions to dust and indoor air.
Your ducts are how the air from your home’s heating, cooling, and ventilating systems travels from room to room. These systems force air in and out of your home, taking with it dust and other allergens.
In order to ensure you’re receiving the very best service possible, it’s recommended that you work with a NADCA certified company, but what does that really mean?
