Top 7 Reasons for Residential & Commercial Duct Cleaning:
Other People’s Cells: Roughly 30,000 skin cells are shed every hour per human; circulated around 60x’s per day in the vents. No matter whether at work or home, just imagine how many skin cells are generated by each person inhabiting the space every day; thus, choosing a duct cleaning company might move a little higher on the list! No one wants to breathe in their co worker’s dander.
Using too much energy: Excess dust and debris can put undue stress on heating and cooling systems. If your furnace or air conditioner is working harder, it is using more energy. This increases expenses unnecessarily, and furthermore is decreasing the potential life of the heating and air units themselves. Ensure your heating and cooling systems at your home or business are operating at peak efficiency – by replacing an inefficient furnace can save up to 50% on energy bills. Clothes not drying? Too Much Humidity? Could be a blocked dryer vent (see next point below).
Potential fire hazard: The average household produces around 40Lbs of dirt, dust, debris, dander, dust mites, mold spores and pet hair etc per year. This excess debris can not only build up on the heat exchanger and is a fire hazard, but also encourages creepy crawly critters such as dust mites, pathogens, molds, and other health and allergen triggers. Clothes dryers are responsible for approx 16,000 fires per year. Even if you clean your filter every time, particles can still build up in the hose which vents to the exterior of the house or dwelling.
Ewww… Who was in that space before you? Its one thing to be breathing in dirty air from people you know, but who or what was in there before you? Especially in an office environment in use in the era of DDT and crazy pesticides and cleaning solutions, or other banned substances. (or their dirt, debris and dander). Shudder? Yeah, might want to call the health and safety hotline and ask when the last time the vents were cleaned.
Pets & Fur Babies at home or work: We love our pets, but they do contribute immensely to the amount of dander, pet hair, fleas etc circulating through the system. This escalates almost exponentially by the addition of each fur baby. Pets at home and pets at work all contribute to reduced indoor air quality, they are often more sensitive than humans, so for both of your and their sake, it’s good to consider regular duct cleaning.
Dust no matter how much you clean: Older homes and offices too, are not as tightly sealed as their newer counterparts. Do you wipe off the counter in the morning and find by evening there is a new layer of dust? This isn’t due to lack of daily cleaning, but simply due to the amount of dust seeping in from the exterior. Now the outside pollution is making its way inside as well, thus further consideration for hiring an HVAC duct cleaning company.
General cleaning can be a pollutant in itself: Carpets, plastics and cleaning supplies can entrap particles in the home. Look for a company that have certified IAQ specialists (Indoor Air Quality), especially in the workplace where harsh industrial solvents are used. Commercial Duct Cleaning is a great option to help your workplace generate healthier air.
Bonus Reason: Do you have a fireplace or does your office have a warehouse Also wood burning fireplaces contribute immensely to the amount of soot and micro particles in the house, not only does it make its way down the vents, and blows through the vents when the furnace comes on, but that fine wood silt can make breathing harder and affect the sensitive people in the house. Warehouses by their very nature stir up and create dust. Increase the health of your employees by maintaining optimal air quality.
Check for credentials of the HVAC company: Are they industry Certified? Service options – Do they only do ducts and that’s it, or is it one of many components of the company’s service list. Longevity – how long have they been in business? Equipment – they should be coming in with something substantial – a vacuum truck or a large wheeled in unit. Certified, insured and bonded service staff?
Having one company to ensure all of your systems are working at peak efficiency, whether maintaining, tuning up or replacing the furnace and air units, or testing the indoor air quality, refreshing the space with environmentally friendly odour removal equipment – it is helpful to have one company monitoring it all. Annual service contracts can save time and ensure regular maintenance.
