Air Duct Cleaning

The Importance of Cleaning your 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 & Austin 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

The 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.
