If you have central heating or cooling in your Augusta, Georgia, home, you have a network of ducts delivering hot or cold air throughout the house. As air passes through these ducts, it can carry any number of pollutants and allergens with it. These often collect in the ductwork, creating a buildup that exacerbates symptoms for allergy sufferers. Clean ducts can help reduce allergy issues in your home by getting rid of the problematic pollutants.
What is a Duct Cleaning?
Our technicians begin the duct cleaning process by removing all the register covers in your home and carefully cleaning them. They will then insert a hose into the ductwork that has a rotating brush head on the top. This will remove dust, dirt, and other debris from the ducts. Finally, our technicians fog the ducts with an antimicrobial mist that will kill potentially hazardous microbes so you have a healthy breathing environment.
What Allergens Can Hide in the Ductwork?
Over time, irritants like dust mites, mold, pollen, and mildew can accumulate in the ducts. These are all potentially irritating for allergy sufferers. The United States Environment Protection Agency recommends a duct cleaning for any situation where there is visible mold growth, excessive dust and debris coming out of the registers, or a vermin infestation. All of these situations can cause uncomfortable problems for those with allergies.
How Do Clean Ducts Ease Allergies?
After our professional duct cleaning, your ducts will be free from common irritants. The antimicrobial spray will stop active growths, and the thorough brush cleaning will get dust, dander, and other problematic debris out so you can breathe easier. Consider adding an air cleaner to your system at this time as well, to stop future dust particles from accumulating in the clean ductwork.
