Why Regular Air Duct Cleaning is Essential

Many people don’t think too much about their air ducts and therefore don’t think about cleaning them on a regular basis. However, air ducts in your home and business get just as dirty if not more so than the visible areas such as carpeting, tile, and upholstery.

Air ducts play an essential role in your home, circulating air from the HVAC system to all rooms so you can stay comfortable through all seasons. Over time, air ducts accumulate dust particles, mold, pollen, and other debris that can get disturbed whenever you turn on the HVAC system. This leads to recirculation of the pollutants, which can impact your family’s health.

This is just one of the main reasons why you should have your ductwork cleaned by an experienced air duct cleaning company in Metro Detroit. Here are some more reasons.

Air Duct Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality

The air that circulates through your ducts is the same air breathed in by your family members. That indoor air can be even worse than outdoor air, containing contaminants such as dust, pet dander, volatile chemicals, pesticides, and carbon monoxide that are pulled into your HVAC unit. Those pollutants accumulate and hide within the ducts, then get distributed throughout your living space.

Those pollutants can trigger coughing, sneezing, congestion, and other respiratory illnesses. Regular cleaning of the ductwork can get rid of those harmful particles and improve your indoor air quality.

Air Duct Cleaning Increases the HVAC Unit’s Efficiency

A buildup of dust particles and debris can impede airflow over time, blocking the flow of conditioned air, and creating cold and hot pockets in your house. Now your HVAC unit has to work even harder to circulate enough warm or cool air, which consumes more energy and increases your utility bills. Also, this strains your HVAC equipment, shortening its useful lifespan.

Air Duct Cleaning Gets Rid of Nasty Odors

Everything from paint fumes and cleaning solutions to tobacco smoke and food can create nasty odors throughout the house. Air ducts can trap those stale odors, and then repeatedly send them back out into the home. Bacteria and mold also lead to awful odors, as do the droppings of rodents and other critters who may be making their homes in your ducts.

Sometimes pests even die in there, decompose, and leave behind a gross stench. Regular duct cleaning will remove those contaminants and dead critters, ensuring fresh smells in your abode.

Air Duct Cleaning Maintains a Cleaner Environment

Dust particles distributed through the ductwork settle on your bedding, furniture, and floor, leading to the need for increased chores like dusting and cleaning. Save yourself the work and get your air ducts cleaned instead.

Air Duct Cleaning Eliminates Irritants

Air ducts could harbor harmful microorganisms that can threaten the health of small children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems. Allergic symptoms and asthma attacks can be triggered by repeated recirculation of airborne contaminants, which can be prevented with periodic air duct cleaning. This will keep everyone healthier while reducing sick time and medical bills.

Air Duct Cleaning Ensures Safety

Dirty ducts can spark a fire, as dirt and lint accumulate inside. When they heat up, they could ignite and lead to a potentially devastating house fire. Your risk is compounded if you have an old HVAC unit, or use propane for your stove, furnace, or fireplace.

Air Duct Cleaning Helps Filters Last Longer

The job of your air filters is to trap dirt and contaminants, but if they are clogged with too much dust, they’re not doing their job and you have to change them more frequently. With less dust in the system, you can go longer in between air filter changes, which saves you money and time.

I have used 1st Class for both a commercial building and our home. Both experiences were great! I thought our carpet at home was past the point of no return, but they did an amazing job. Pet stains and heavy traffic areas look so great. They are super responsive and timely. A great local small business! I would highly recommend.

I could not be happier with our cleaning service from 1st Class! From my first call, Ginny worked with me to optimize the timing of our cleaning with other work being done, and all communication from there was clear and thorough. Claude and Ginny are genuinely nice people and were a pleasure to work with during the cleaning. They clearly know their stuff and stand behind their work. Results were my formerly bedraggled 9 year old carpets looking brand new and a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others.

This Company did a fantastic job on our 30+ year old carpet that just won't wear out! While we were moving furniture back afterward, I noticed a strip in a traffic area that didn't look quite right. When I contacted them, they were back out within a few hours and promptly took care of the issue!

We have a carpet that was the best quality at the time, but is 30 years old. It had so many stains, I was sure they were permanent. The owners showed up with state of the art equipment and 'steam' cleaned, not hot water clean, and got almost every stain and mark out of this old carpet. It honestly looks like new. The only stain remaining was because it was actual wood stain and you have to replace the carpet with that much damage. The steam allows you to walk on the carpet in 6 hours instead of the usual 24. We are selling this house and the carpet was the only sore spot, but not anymore. I will recommend this company to family and friends with a clear conscience.

After our crawlspace flooded due to a frozen pipe, we could not have asked for a better experience or better service than what Claude provided. One of the perks of a small town and local business - we called in the later evening hours on a weeknight, expecting to get voicemail and/or be told we would have to wait a couple days, but Claude was there with a pump within 20 minutes! A good 2-3 feet of water was pumped and gone by the next morning allowing us to quickly get our pipe fixed and boiler up and running so we could heat our house. Claude brought a blower over, checked in with us regularly, and finalized his part by spraying to prevent mold. Friendly, knowledgeable, and more than fair in pricing. We highly recommend this local small business!
