It’s a question that homeowners in the Niagara Region, and many other places, seem to find themselves thinking about: what exactly is duct cleaning, what does it do, and why is it important for me and my home?
We’re here to help respond to those questions to make the decision-making process a little easier next time you’re thinking about ways to boost your home’s air quality.
What is duct cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the removal of dirt, articles and debris inside your home’s air distribution system (the ductwork). Duct cleaning normally involves special tools, vacuums and a process to free dirt and debris that’s adhering to the interior walls of the ducts before being taken out with a powerful vacuum system. This is different from your routine air conditioner or furnace maintenance service that focuses mostly on your heating and air conditioning equipment.
What does ducting cleaning do?
Duct cleaning can help your home and indoor air quality in a variety of ways, like:
- Removing dirt and dust from your home and the air you breathe
- Eliminating germs and bacteria produced by excessive dirt
- Improving your heating and air conditioning system’s energy efficiency
- Possibly alleviating the symptoms of seasonal allergies inside the home
