Are you considering duct cleaning to complement your Spring cleaning plans this season? Well, you are in luck, not only are we offering a discounted rate this month but we are also sharing three reasons why you should have a duct cleaning performed in your home this Spring.

 3 reasons why a duct cleaning will complement your spring cleaning 

  1. Better air quality- When you clean out your ducts, you are essentially cleaning the system that filters the air throughout your home. If you do not clean this periodically, you will continue to collect dirt and debris over time. When purchasing a home, this is a service you want to consider, especially because you do not know when the last time the previous owner had this service performed. Once you have a duct cleaning you will notice the difference drastically, in some cases it helps with allergy symptoms.
  2. A cleaner home- Have you ever noticed a thin layer of dirt in your home and wondered why you have to dust it off so frequently? Well, it is possible that your ducts are distributing this dirt throughout your home due to them not being cleaned in quite some time. A simple remedy to this is having a duct cleaning service. 
  3. HVAC efficiency- If your HVAC system is cluttered with dust and debris, it will perform accordingly. This means it will work overtime to reach your temperature goals, however, it will cost you more money in energy bills and it strains your HVAC unit. 

During the month of April, we are offering 10% off of our duct cleaning service. This offer does not include dryer vents or antimicrobial fog treatment. This is a limited-time offer and spots are limited. Feel free to reach out to take advantage of our special April 2022 offer.

You may ask yourself, how frequently do I need to have my ducts serviced? That depends on a few different things such as, the size of the home, the amount of people that live in the home, and if you have pets or not.

Duct Cleaning

Taking forever to dry your clothes?

Does your furnace sound like a freight train?

More than likely this is because your air or exhaust ducts are in need of an extensive cleaning and the filters changed out.

When the dust builds up in your air ducts and exhaust system it causes your dryer and HVAC system to work overtime and shorten the life of these expensive items. Not only is this bad for your appliances and mechanical system, it's also a fire hazard.

When to Call Professionals for a Duct Cleaning Service?

  • Call when dust begins appearing shortly after cleaning.
  • Call when musty or stale odors are appearing when a furnace runs.

 Why Should You Call?

  • Avoiding an air-duct clean could affect anyone living in the house with allergies or asthma.
  • Dust, dirt, and pollen are pulled into the air duct system.
  • Dismissing an air duct cleaning service could possibly leave room for mold, bacteria, fungus, and mildew to form.
  • This will circulate whenever the furnace turns on.
  • The services offered remove any mold or other contaminants providing a clean air circulation throughout your home.

The benefits of servicing Your HVAC Unit Include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

Be sure to clean out your air ducts and vents at least once a year in order to keep the airflow in your house clean and safe. Call to schedule an appointment today.
