Why BC Homes Need Air Ducts Cleaned?
Answer is because they get dirty! If you have a decent sized home, you will at some point in time need air duct cleaning. These are several factors that can intesify the need for an air duct maintenance:
- If you have pets
- If you have house members with acute allergies or asthma
- If you have someone who smokes
- If you have a home renovation project
- If you have occassional damages to home air system
The reason why these factors are determinants is because some occupants in the house are more sensitive than others. The young children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to these types of air contaminants. Of course proper cleaning can address the circumstance.
So why on earth do you need to do to find out if your air duct needs cleaning?
You pretty much can tell from indoor air quality; cautiously inspect your heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
First what you want to do is using a small mirror or flashlight to detect how bad the situation is. The next step, you can take your digital camera and take a picture inside the duct.
See the picture and diagnose the severity of the condition.
What should I do if they are so dirty?
Well I guess you know the answer to the question. National Duct Cleaning Association strongly advised that duct cleaning should be performed in totality. This suggests that if you decide to clean one part of the HVAC system, you should also clean the whole system. Otherwise you are risking re-contaminating the whole system.
Hold at this point and think for yourself. If you clean only duct, don’t you think other components that are previously connected to duct will also need cleaning? true of course. But what are those components? In addition to air ducts, they are the following:
- Drain pan
- Air Plenum
- Air Cleaner
- Heat Exchanger
- Blower Motor
Do your first inspection or consult with 604Cleaner right away. Don’t risk your family with such poor environment!
