The air in your Tampa, Florida, home circulates through your HVAC system’s ductwork several times per day. If your ducts contain soot from a fire, mold from water damage, or other contaminants, your HVAC system can spread these pollutants throughout your home. This leads to unpleasant smells, wastes energy, and shortens your HVAC system’s life. Have your ductwork cleaned by a professional after a disaster to save energy, remove dangerous contaminants, and make your home more comfortable.
Without duct cleaning after fires and many other types of damage, your ductwork will become clogged with dust, dirt, and other substances that obstruct your HVAC system’s airflow. This forces your system to work harder and use more power. Professional duct cleaning can keep your utility bills from going up after your repairs are done.
Removing Harmful Contaminants
Having your ducts cleaned can get rid of mold, soot, and harmful chemicals formed when synthetic materials burn. It can also reduce pollen and other contaminants. Many of these substances can cause allergies, asthma, or even cancer. A professional duct cleaner can remove these contaminants and keep your family safe.
Making Your Home More Comfortable
If the air flow in your ductwork is partially blocked by contaminants, you may notice areas in your home that are too hot or too cold, and your HVAC system can take longer to bring your home to a comfortable temperature. Dirty ductwork can also cause unpleasant smells, strange noises from pests living in ducts, and more dust around your home and on furniture. Even if you haven’t had recent damage to your home, you should contact a professional to inspect your ducts if you have any of these annoying problems.
