The Importance of HVAC Cleanings

9/8/2023 (Permalink)

Every residential structure has an HVAC system, but how many of them get cleaned regularly, if at all? The answer is unfortunately, not very many. There are several things that can happen in an HVAC that goes uncleaned. It starts with what resides in them. The most common substance is dust. Additionally, if the home owner has pets; pet hair is very common. Dirt, critters, rodents, and pests, like cockroaches, crickets, rats, and mice, and even mold if there is humidity in the vents is also very common. The problems that can be caused if any of these things are found is increased energy bill, reduced efficiency of the heating and cooling system, a smelly home, respiratory issues because of dirty air circulating throughout the house, and microbial organisms that are harmful to lungs. Mold could be considered the most concerning substance found in vents. Moisture from condensation, over time, can grow mildew and mold.

SERVPRO® suggests that air ducts be cleaned by a professional every 3 to 5 years. Call 563-386-3540 to have a certified professional come to your home and have your HVAC system cleaned!
