Many people do not know that there are some great services available to them from their HVAC contractors. One of these services is vent cleaning. A professional HVAC contractor, such as Bill's Plumbing Heating & Air, can come to your house and use a series of brushes, blowers and vacuums, to go through and clear out all the vents in your home. This can improve the air quality of your home, and help your AC and heater work more efficiently. Here are a couple circumstances where you should get vent cleaning.
1. Recent Home Construction
If you have recently had some sort of home renovation, you need to get your vents cleaned. Think about all the dust, dirt and germs that are picked up when you have construction projects in your house. All of this dirt and dust has to go somewhere. The natural thing for it to do is to get sucked into the vents. Then, each time you turn on the AC or the heater, it will blow all this dust into the air.
If you have someone in the house who is especially sensitive to dirt and dust, such as a person with asthma, you should consider getting the vents cleaned right away.
2. Problems With Mold
Mold can be very dangerous to your health. Many homeowners have mold in their homes without even realizing it. Usually if you find mold in one place, you've got it in other places that you cannot see. This means that you can even have mold in the vents.
For this reason, you should get the vents cleaned if you have recently had a problem with mold. If you have mold in the vents, the vents will blow the dangerous particles throughout the house, endangering the health of those in the home.
3. Rodents Or Pests In The House
Another reason to have your vents cleaned is if you have recently had a problem with pests or rodents in the house. Sadly, these rodents and pests can house themselves in your vents. Think about all the droppings that the rodents can leave. Even worse, if a rodent were to die in the vent, you would have a major health hazard. For this reason, you should call for professional vent cleaning if you suspect that there are animals in your vents. They can clear the vents of the animals and any of their droppings.
These are just three reasons to get vent cleaning.
