If you've noticed any of these issues in your home, cleaner air ducts may solve your problem:
When was the last time that you had your air ducts cleaned? If you're like most homeowners, it's probably been a while. Some homeowners have never had their ducts cleaned at all. Most people don't think about their air ducts until they stop working or get especially dirty. If it's been a few years since you hired a professional to clean your air duct system, you should consider having the process done again. Most homeowners notice a big difference if they have their air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. So how do you know when it's time for a professional air duct cleaning?
How long have you lived in your current home? The longer you live in your house, the more all of your actions add up. Think about everything that you do in your house every day, from making coffee in the morning to watching TV at night. All of the little things you do in between can bring pollution into the house. That pollution gets into your air ducts, and then your family breathes the air as it circulates.
What kind of pollution are you dealing with? Smoke and steam from cooking will get into the air ducts. Family members using the front door can bring allergens like pollen inside. When you dust the furniture, that dust can float into the air ducts, making you repeat your cleaning cycle all over again. All of these things seem small on their own, but when they combine, they can have a major impact. If you've lived in your house for a long time, your air ducts are holding on to all the dust and dirt you've kicked up over the years. By having a team of experts clean those ducts, you can avoid breathing all of last year's pollution.
If you have mold in your air ducts, you should have them cleaned right away. Mold spores can go anywhere, and that includes your air ducts. When those mold spores combine with moisture, you end up with mold.
We've mentioned a few times on our site that mold will keep growing until somebody removes it all. In other words, if you have mold in your air ducts, it's not going to go away on its own.
As long as that mold stays in your air ducts, it can cause dizziness and headaches. If any family members have allergies or asthma, mold can make those problems worse. Also, mold in your air ducts can create mold in the rest of the house. The air from your HVAC system can launch mold spores into the home. If these spores contact moisture, you could end up with mold growing in several different rooms.
Have your heating and cooling bills been unusually high recently? Is your HVAC system running inefficiently? You might have a blockage in your air ducts. Sometimes, grit can stick together inside the ducts, creating blockages.
When buildup prevents airflow, it takes longer for your rooms to cool down or heat up. As a result, your heater or air conditioner has to run longer, and you have higher bills. If your high energy costs are caused by air duct blockages, then our extensive cleaning process will help your system run efficiently again.
Your air ducts are part of a complex system. Imagine your home's plumbing without water, and you'll have a good idea of what your air ducts look like. Cleaning that system takes patience and attention to detail. At Diamond G Construction, Inc., we've perfected our air duct cleaning system.
