How Duct Cleaning Helps You Breathe Easier

Spring is a very contentious time for air quality. This is probably the time of year that you’re noticing that you’re having those pesky allergy symptoms like coughing, watery eyes, and sneezing. If you’re worried about the pollen count outdoors, make sure that you do your due diligence and get concerned with your indoor air quality too!

Your indoor air quality is a really sinister sink on your health if you don’t take the extra care to keep it high. Since so many homeowners think of indoor air quality as a “cherry on top” service, you might not even know where to start improving your IAQ. That’s why we want to point you in the direction of duct cleaning. If you’re looking for duct cleaning services in Orem, UT then make sure that you contact our team today.

“Is It Really Worth It?”

This is the number one question we get when we talk to our customers about duct cleaning services. The answer is a resounding yes and we’re here to tell you why. Dust gradually accumulates in your home. You see the evidence of this on almost every visible surface, but what about the ones that you can’t see? Your ductwork is a prime area where dust, dirt, and other incidentals accumulate. It gets especially bad when your air ducts are out of shape themselves.

You need to make sure that you choose a professional when you’re ready to clean your ductwork. There are so many things that can go wrong without professional care. You don’t want to try to clean your ducts on your own and not get everything out or, even worse, dislodge or disconnect a duct. You might think that a DIY effort will save you a few extra bucks but it’s worthwhile to contact a professional the first time.

When You Should Have Your Ducts Cleaned?

So now you know why—but when? You should have your ducts cleaned if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • You’ve Recently Renovated: Have you recently added on to your home or made any upgrades? Renovations definitely improve your home, but they also decrease the air quality because of the amount of dust the process kicks up. It’s worthwhile to dislodge anything that’s gotten stuck in your ductwork sooner than later.
  • You Have Pets: Do you have any furry friends running around your home? Unfortunately, man’s best friend is hard on your indoor air quality. A duct cleaning removes any hair or pet dander lurking in your vents.
  • You’re Having Respiratory Issues: Notice that you come home and feel like your allergies actually get worse? If you’ve already taken steps to boost your immune system and decontaminate your home then your indoor air quality is the culprit. Duct cleaning is a great way to help you and your family members breathe a little easier.

Air duct cleaning is one of the best ways to help you breathe easier. If you’re trying to improve your indoor air quality at home, make sure that you contact Skylake Heating & Air to schedule an appointment today.
