Have you noticed that the air quality in your home is getting worse? Maybe you find that you have a hard time focusing at home, or you often get headaches. It could be that your ducts for your HVAC system need to be cleaned. Many homeowners don’t consider the need to have their ducts cleaned, but it is essential both for the proper functioning of your HVAC system, as well as, for ventilation in general. Unfortunately, this is not something that you can take care of yourself. There are many companies out there that do duct cleaning, and they can improve the situation for you in a relatively short amount of time.
Many times they will have a giant vacuum inside of a van that gets hooked up to your duct system. Using this they get all the loose debris out of your ducts, but they will also use tools to knock loose anything that might have gotten caked on. Once they are done vacuuming, they can also treat the ducts with chemicals that will hold off mold and bacteria.
