As flowers bloom and temperatures rise, many homeowners begin the process of spring cleaning. There’s no better time to clean and air out your home than during this season of new growth. If you’ve started your spring cleaning or are making your spring cleaning checklist, don’t forget to include HVAC maintenance tasks. In addition to changing the filters on your heating and cooling units and having all HVAC devices serviced, consider making an appointment for duct cleaning.

Complete Spring Cleaning with HVAC Maintenance

Keeping up on preventative HVAC maintenance service is one of the best ways to ensure that your central heating and cooling units work efficiently when you need them the most. Spring is a great time to schedule HVAC service appointments because neither your heating nor cooling units are in heavy use during these warm, transitional months. This is also the ideal time to have your ductwork cleaned.

Is Duct Cleaning Really Important?

Many homeowners are skeptical about having ducts cleaned. However, it’s important to remember that your ducts are an integral part of your HVAC system and must be maintained in order to pump clean air throughout your home. Over time, all of the following can build up in your ductwork:

  • Dust, dirt, pollen and dander.
  • Vermin droppings.
  • Mold and mildew.
  • Particle pollutants found in household chemicals.
  • Moisture.

Many of the pollutants found in your ductwork can aggravate those family members who suffer from asthma, allergies, COPD and other respiratory ailments. Having your ducts cleaned is one of the best ways to ensure that these pollutants aren’t making their way into your home. Duct cleaning provides an easy way to improve overall air quality and maintain in-home comfort. Clearing your ducts of serious buildup can also help boost the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system.

What to Expect During A Cleaning Appointment

It’s important that a professional HVAC technician clean your home’s ducts. Your technician will have the tools needed to thoroughly clean the ducts and remove pollutants from your home. Upon arrival, your technician will inspect your home’s ducts and will begin the cleaning process. If mold and mildew have built up in your home’s ducts, the technician may recommend a special coating that can prevent mold colonies from growing in ducts again.

If your HVAC technician discovers a vermin infestation in your ductwork, you will need to call an extermination professional. It is essential to squash vermin infestations immediately as rodent and pest dropping can cause serious respiratory problems. Never attempt to deal with duct infestations on your own.
