The Hidden Importance of Air Duct Cleaning Services
Maintaining Your Clean Air
If you’ve never invested in Air Duct Cleaning Services, you likely don’t understand the difference between a freshly cleaned system and your system. Cleaning your ducts is essential to maintaining a habitable, comfortable home or business. Unlike some optional cleaning services, the benefits of Air Duct Cleaning Services greatly outweigh the cost. In this article, we’re going to walk you through the benefits. We’re also going to answer some commonly asked questions. By the end, we hope you’ll pick up the phone and schedule a cleaning appointment – if you haven’t already!
Some Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning Services
We’ll start with the unique benefits of investing in duct cleaning. All of these benefits revolve around the health, comfort, and safety of those living in your home or visiting your business regularly. This includes your roommates, family members, friends, employees, and frequent customers. Believe it or not, your air duct system affects each and every one of these people in a daunting way.
1. It keeps your home or business habitable
Let’s start with the punchline. Air duct systems affect air quality in your home or business. Over time, these systems collect dust, dirt, pollutants, allergens, and other dangerous toxins or materials that can put your health on the line. In a very serious way, Air Duct Cleaning Services can keep your home or business habitable (or visitable). Without a properly cleaned system, your structure doesn’t stand a chance. You could be cited for health code violations, evicted, or taken to court by a disgruntled associate. Lower your liability by having your air ducts treated as quickly as possible, especially if you can’t remember the last time they were cleaned.
2. Your visitors will notice a distinct difference in air quality
When we spend a majority of our time in a single place, we don’t notice its level of air quality. It takes days, weeks, months, and sometimes years for the effects of poor air quality to take a toll on our body. Only then do we realize the mistake we made by failing to treat our air ducts. On the other hand, when we visit someone else’s home or business, we notice air quality instantaneously. Your mind could register the change as thick, musty, or smelly. This means that, after you’ve invested in Air Duct Cleaning Services, your visitors will notice the improvement in overall air quality, even if you don’t.
3. You will feel more comfortable
Even though the change in air quality may not be obvious to you, you’ll almost certainly feel more comfortable knowing the air system in your home or business has been thoroughly cleaned. We suggest looking into your system before Air Duct Cleaning Services begin. Then, when the job is complete, take another look. This visual representation of the change will put your investment into perspective.
4. Your housemates will lead a healthier lifestyle
If you need residential air duct cleaning, you’ll find you (and your housemates) can lead a more healthy lifestyle once Air Duct Cleaning Services are complete. Have you ever lived in a visibly dirty environment? It can feel impossible to focus, clean, or make healthy choices. Once your air quality improves, your thinking and motivation to make healthy choices will also improve. It comes with the territory when your home has been thoroughly cleaned. The same is true in a business environment. The work will suddenly seem less daunting. It’s all about your surroundings.
Four Air Duct Cleaning Services FAQs
To round off what you’ve learned about Air Duct Cleaning Services, we’re going to cover a few of our favorite Frequently Asked Questions.
1. How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?
Unlike surfaces in your home – such as carpets, mattresses, or countertops – you don’t come into contact with your air ducts on a daily basis. While our general recommendation for steam cleaning frequency is six to twelve months, you should invest in Air Duct Cleaning Services once every twelve to eighteen months. Business owners should consider more frequent visits because company air quality affects more people and can diminish rapidly.
2. Should my entire system be cleaned at once?
Yes, your entire air duct system should be cleaned during the same service period. Imagine splitting your system into sections and cleaning each section at different appointments. You’ll face a number of problems. The most significant, though, is the risk of pollutants, dust, and dirt running from dirty sections into freshly cleaned sections. It defeats the purpose of employing Air Duct Cleaning Services in the first place.
3. Are there special times when I should have my air ducts cleaned?
In addition to your regular cleanings, Air Duct Cleaning Services should be conducted before you move into a new home or business, after you move out of your home or business (it’s only polite), or before you move into a freshly built home. Building and insulation materials can make their way into your air duct system during the construction process, even if no tenants preceded your arrival. These materials can be especially damaging to air quality.
4. Why should I hire On Time Steam Cleaning?
At On Time Steam Cleaning, our Air Duct Cleaning Services are highly effective. We use natural cleaning methods and enzyme-based cleaners for a safe, green experience that other companies often ignore.
