It is critical for health and well-being to improve and maintain indoor air quality. A regular professional inspection of the heating and cooling (HVAC) system and an air filtration system will help to reduce the amount of indoor airborne contaminants. But, these measures do not deal with the dirt and debris that accumulate inside the ductwork over time.
Does indoor air quality matter? According to the EPA, consider:
- An American spends nearly 90% of their time indoors
- Concentrations of some pollutants maybe 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors
- Those most vulnerable to low-quality air spend even more time indoors than on average
- Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent years
At Mister Quik Home Services, our HVAC technicians have the training and the equipment to provide you with the most complete, thorough duct cleaning in Bloomington, IN. With our commitment to high-quality work and unmatched customer service, rely on Mister Quik to leave the ductwork as clean as it was on installation day.
How Duct Cleaning Works
Without professional tools, equipment, and techniques, only a very limited portion of the duct system can be properly cleaned. Duct cleaning is one of the home maintenance items that require professional help. Mister Quik is a trusted name and will provide trained technicians and the right tools and equipment to clean the ductwork.
For duct cleaning in Bloomington, IN, Mister Quik uses a negative pressure system to collect accumulated debris and dust from the ventilation system. Think of a giant vacuum being applied to the duct system. We will seal all air registers to maximize suction. Then, using compressed air and brushes, we will proceed from register to register, reaching deep into the ventilation system to loosen and collect dust and debris. Once the areas in proximity to the registers are cleaned, the HVAC technician will clean the rest of the system. The last step is to clean or replace the air filter.
After the cleaning is finished, the air ducts will be completely clean, which will mean that the indoor air quality will be improved.
Benefits of Duct Cleaning
There are several reasons why a duct cleaning in Bloomington, IN may be valuable, including:
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
- Reduced Household Allergens
- Increased HVAC Efficiency
- Elimination of Musty Odors
- A Cleaner Home
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Actively using the heating or cooling system or simply using the fan to circulate air will cause contaminants suspended in that air to spread around the home. Dust, bacteria, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and other particulates tend to settle in the vents.
Coughing, sneezing, headaches, impaired breathing, nasal irritation, congestion, or itchy eyes are symptoms of poor indoor air quality. A professional duct cleaning will improve indoor air pollution immediately, reducing the severity of those symptoms.
Reduced Household Allergens
Research has confirmed that pollen, pet dander, and dust mites are potent allergens that may trigger allergic reactions, including asthma, in sensitive individuals. Because indoor air is continually recycled, allergens will spread throughout the house, making it impossible to find relief indoors. Dirty ductwork provides those allergens a welcome place to accumulate and propagate.
Professional duct cleaning will reduce the level of allergens deposited in the vents. If a member of the household suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory distress, please consider the advantages of duct cleaning.
Increased HVAC Efficiency
Clean ducts provide more space, and clean space, for air to circulate in the ventilation system. The HVAC system will operate less while achieving the same results. Clean ductwork will therefore extend the life of the HVAC system while saving money on utility bills.
Eliminating Musty Odors
Moisture is easily trapped in accumulated dust and debris in the ductwork. This provides a perfect environment for the growth of mold and mildew, both known health hazards. Mildew produces an unmistakably musty odor. A professional duct cleaning from Mister Quik Home Services will help to eliminate that musty odor and deprive the mold spores of a place to call home.
Keeping Home Clean
Duct cleaning will help keep the home cleaner. Absent regular professional cleaning, the HVAC system will blow dust around each time the fan comes on. While total dust elimination is unlikely, keeping ductwork clean will reduce the amount of dust moved around the house by forced air systems.
