Over a year, the average home’s ventilation system accumulates around 40 pounds of dust. You read that right – 40 whole pounds! And yet many people regularly overlook duct and vent cleaning compared to other pressing household needs. Consequently, there’s probably an awful lot of dust floating around your home, and you might not even be aware of it! Eaton’s Home Care, in Coquitlam, offers duct and vent cleaning services that can make a big difference in your home’s air quality!
So we’ve come up with a handy list of 3 things you need to know about duct and vent cleaning:
1. Your heating and cooling system are the lungs of your home. The air that enters and leaves your house does so through your home’s ducts and vents. All of the dirt and debris carried in the air will travel through and accumulate in your ducts.
2. Clean ducts mean you get to breath clean air! If your ducts are not cleaned and are hosting multiple pounds of dust, that means you’re breathing in that dust on a daily basis and this could be very harmful to your overall health. Requesting a duct and vent cleaning could actually improve your health and well-being.
3. The buildup of dirt and debris can prevent air from moving freely. This will greatly affect the air quality in your home. Restricted air movement causes smells, dust, and other fine particulate matter to be trapped in your home, forcing you to breathe it all in.
Eaton’s Home Care, in Coquitlam, recommends you schedule a duct and vent cleaning if you meet any of the following criteria: you’re in a new house; you have a lot of pets that shed; someone in your home is a smoker; you think you may have an infestation in your ducts; someone in your home has asthma or allergies, you’ve recently undergone a renovation; or there’s an unexplainable amount dust in your home that you can’t seem to get rid of, despite all your best efforts!
It never hurts to have your duct vents inspected and cleaned.
