Why It’s Important to Have Your Ducts Cleaned

If you’re thinking of having your home’s Saskatoon duct cleaning, it’s a good idea to check the company out by checking reviews on unbiased websites like Google, Facebook or HomeStars (Home Advisor in the US). Watch out for high-pressure sales tactics and hidden fees. If possible, choose a NADCA-certified duct cleaning company.

Dust that settles in the ductwork contains a wide variety of particulate matter, including pet dander, volatile chemicals and carbon monoxide as well as bacteria, mold spores and other unpleasant organic material. If you are sensitive to these particles, you may notice that they trigger asthma and other health problems.

Most of this detritus stays where it is unless stirred up. However, if the ducts are contaminated with vermin or water damage, and if they contain biocides or chemical treatments, these materials can be distributed throughout your living spaces by the air conditioning system.

When agitated by the airflow of your HVAC system, they can be circulated into other rooms of your home and spread to your family and friends. You can avoid this by hiring a reputable Saskatoon duct cleaner who follows best practices in sanitizing their equipment between clients and keeping a comfortable distance between themselves and their customers during the service process.

In the same way that dust can circulate through your ducts, so too can odours. These can be caused by a wide range of sources, from mildew and mould to garbage, smokers, pets or just cooking. In the case of odours, a professional air quality technician can recommend a safe, plant-based disinfectant such as Benefect which eliminates bacterial and fungal contamination and prevents odour buildup for longer.

It’s important to remember that your home’s ductwork is a recirculation system. Air is pulled into the ducts by your heating and cooling system, which then passes through a series of filters before being distributed into the different areas of your home. If the filter is clogged with debris, it will force your hvac system to work harder in order to keep up with its job. This can result in lowered efficiency and increased energy costs as well as reduced indoor air quality. A clean, efficient filter and a duct cleaning will help you reduce these problems.
