If you live in the Ames, Ankeny, or Des Moines area and have ever wondered if cleaning your air ducts was worth the money or if it is a scam, I can assure you: if you choose a reputable company, it’s well worth the investment. Let me give you four good reasons to get your air ducts cleaned…
It helps to eliminate daily dusting.
If you have to dust the furniture and sweep the floor every day due to dust, chances are good that your air ducts may be dirty. This is especially true if your windows have been closed, and you don’t live by dirt roads. Most of the time our company ends up cleaning out construction debris like sawdust, sheetrock dust, etc. In some situations where there are pets, pet dander can be part of the issue as well.
It helps people in your family who suffer from allergens or other breathing issues.
Most of the problem here is in relation to pet hair and dander, but there are also pollen and other irritants floating around the air in your home that circulates through the ductwork. Remember that the indoor air of a house contains 80% more pollution than the outdoors. This pollution is circulating through the ductwork. By cleaning the ductwork and using a quality filter, you can once again breath clean air.
It helps to remove unwanted odors.
Your pets, household chemicals (in the form of cleaning agents), paint, finish and other construction or remodeling fumes, smoke, cooking odor and even musty smell from dust that has built up over the years in the ducts can all impact indoor air quality. By cleaning the air ducts you can greatly reduce the odor – and many times totally eliminate it.
It helps to increase the efficiency of the furnace/AC.
When the components of the furnace/AC get dirty (like the ductwork, fan, and coil) the system has to work harder. Another culprit of adding unwanted stress to the system is a dirty filter. By not changing it on a regular basis it clogs with dust and it is harder for the fan to pull air through it, causing stress on the fan motor. It also reduces the air flow, which forces the unit to have to run longer in order to reach the desired temperature. By cleaning the system and keeping a clean filter, you will save money by reducing the stress and increasing the efficiency.
