With springtime rapidly approaching in the Portland area, many of you will be looking to clean your house. However, you should also consider the current condition of your air ducts. Air duct cleaning is often overlooked when people clean their homes during the spring, but dirty ducts, no matter how much you clean your house, can drastically reduce your home’s indoor air quality.
Air ducts are the perfect place for dirt, dust, mildew, mold and allergens to accumulate. If air ducts are not properly cleaned, your home’s indoor air quality can, in fact, be worse than the quality of the air found outside. The EPA actually ranks poor indoor air quality in the top five environmental risks to public health. So air duct cleaning is a vital procedure that will ensure that comfort and good health are maintained throughout your home.
Reasons you should have your air ducts cleaned include:
- Your home’s air ducts have never been cleaned, or not in over five years.
- You or your family members are experiencing allergy problems, even beyond allergy season.
- Your home is dusty.
- There are strange odors and smells throughout your home.
You can’t do air duct cleaning by yourself. If you conclude that your air ducts need to be cleaned, you will need to seek the help of a professional duct cleaning service. With expert help, you will get your air ducts thoroughly cleaned. Professionals are trained to provide the best services possible, which will ensure that your ducts are in tip-top shape.
With clean air ducts, the effects of your spring cleaning efforts will be felt for a longer period of time. Duct cleaning can provide fresh, clean air that will help you lessen the effects of allergy season and of other pollutants that can affect your quality of life.
