The first day of spring is right around the corner: warmer weather, longer days, and you can already smell the fresh… allergies. Coughing, sneezing, and sniffling are no stranger to people with common springtime allergies; however, a professional air duct cleaning can significantly reduce the agitators lingering in the air.
According to statistics, 55% of the U.S. population tests positive to one or more allergens. One in six causes of allergies are due to the lack of proper care of the ducting system in a building. According to our air duct cleaning professionals, the average building should have their air ducts cleaned once every two to five years. After a prolonged period of use, a system can collect dust and mold particles that may build up on the interior lining.
Included in the duct cleaning process, the filters in your system should be maintained as well. If there is an excessive amount of particle build up, the filter can no longer function properly and can impede airflow as a result. In addition to increasing your springtime allergies, a poorly preserved filter can also cause the air to be overly dry. Overly dry air can lead to irritated mucous membranes and nosebleeds.
A professional air duct cleaning process should take, on average, 3-4 hours for residential buildings. Commercial buildings can be spread throughout multiple days depending on hours of use, size, and the contents within the structure.
