Air Duct Cleaning
The Importance of Cleaning your Houston Home's Air Ducts
While everyday chores will help to keep your house tidy and comfortable,
maintaining a truly clean home can require the help of professionals to
get into hard-to-reach areas where dust, mold, and mildew may hide. Many
homeowners will make the mistake of neglecting to maintain areas like
air ducts, which might be harboring a number of potential irritants away
from your view. If you are unsure when the last time your home’s
air ducts were cleaned, you will want to contact the licensed professionals
at Steam Express for prompt, reliable service in the Houston area.
Our services will ensure higher air quality in your home, which is essential for good
health and comfort for the whole family.
How Your HVAC System Works
HVAC system cycles air through the house, which means that as air is blown out of
vents, return ducts are sucking up air along with dust, dirt, and other
debris. As these particles are continuously fed into the return vents,
contaminants will build up in your air ducts, which may result in the
circulation of unclean air throughout the house.
You should keep in mind that your return vents are the dirtiest components
of your ventilation system. This is because your return air ducts are
pulling air back into your furnace, which usually means dust, dirt, and
debris are being pulled in along with it. Those contaminants eventually
make it back into your indoor air supply if your air ducts are not properly
cleaned. At Steam Express, we open your return vents and then thoroughly
brush and vacuum them, making sure that the vents are completely cleaned.
When you have contaminant buildup, your air ducts become the perfect breeding
grounds for mold. Once mold spores make it into your airflow, they can
potentially cause upper respiratory issues that lead to asthma-like symptoms
and other health complications. Our team can eliminate mold and other
microbial contaminators by using just the right combination of chemical
solutions in our
Rotobrush aiR+® system. Our products and equipment can provide your air ducts with a protective
layer that will stop mold growth right in its tracks!
Why Cleaning Is Essential
Dust is irritating enough on its own, but there are other contaminants
that can develop as dust is allowed to build up in the air ducts. If your
family regularly experiences symptoms like sneezing, itchiness, dry skin,
and frequent respiratory infections, there may be
mold and mildew forming inside of the air ducts. That means that mold spores are circulating through the vents, causing
regular irritation for you and your family. Below you’ll get a closer
look at how regular cleaning minimizes this effect while improving the
overall performance of your HVAC system.
Enhance system performance – Dirty air ducts can diminish the performance of your heating and cooling
system, because there is a physical blockage that limits air intake and
proper flow through the vents.
Minimize mold growth – Mold and mildew can thrive in dusty air ducts, thereby contaminating the
air you breathe in every day. Cleaning dust and debris from the ducts
and using safe, environmentally-friendly cleaning chemicals will inhibit
the growth of mold and ensure cleaner air for your family.
