Air duct cleaning is the cleaning of heating and cooling system components, including return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers, along with heating and cooling coils. It is important to clean the air ducts to improve your Charlotte air quality in your residence. There are visible signs that your air ducts may need to be cleaned including visible mold growth, ducts infested with rodents or insects, or air duct systems clogged with dust or debris that is going into the air. In fact, according to the EPA, your home can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust per year. Eventually, some of this dust will find its way into the air duct system.
Additionally, if your vents are located on the floor, you will see more dust and debris buildup. In some cases, simply changing the air filter may not be enough depending on the quality and condition of your air filter. If your air filter is clogged with debris such as pollen, dog hair, or skin dander then they may bypass your filter and end up in the air ducts and on the coils. Moisture and humidity can also allow mold growth on you the air ducts, possibly compromising your Charlotte air quality. Proper home air duct cleaning will remove contaminants and increase the efficiency of your air duct system.
