Spring Cleaning? What About Your Ducts?

Spring Break is rapidly approaching and with houseguests arriving soon, it’s time to do our spring cleaning! It’s easy to remember the vacuuming (use a vacuum with a HEPA filter) and to change the bed linens (wash them in hot water to kill dust mites). But there are other parts of the house that are easier to neglect like…

Ducts!

Do you have pets?

Pet hair and dander are visible signs of the allergens and irritants these family members bring into our homes. These materials also gather in our ducts. Especially if you have pets which shed or multiple pets, you want to have clean ducts so that these allergens are not distributed throughout your home every time you turn on the heat or the air conditioning.

Do you want to save money?

When your ventilation system has to work against contaminants lurking in your ducts, it uses more energy to keep the air moving–costing you money in fuel costs. Change your air filters and clean your ducts to make your system work as efficiently as possible.

Do you want to prevent fires?

Two of the biggest causes of home fires are cooking fires that can spread into greasy kitchen ductwork and dryer vent fires due to heat and lint buildup in dryer ductwork. Both of these types of fires can be minimized or prevented by having clean ducts.

AirTek is always on the lookout for ways to make your home healthier and safer. Clean ducts are one way to do both!
