Air Duct Cleaning in Denver, NC

Breathe Easier with Our Air Duct Cleaning Services

When people think of pollution, they usually don’t consider that pollution collecting inside of a home or business. Typically, when pollution comes up, people think of car exhaust or corporate air pollutants or water waste runoff. However, being indoors doesn’t necessarily guarantee clean air.

Air filters were created to “filter” out the smaller particulates floating around a home or business, including, but not limited to:

  • Pollen
  • Smoke
  • Mildew and mold spores
  • Dust
  • Viruses and bacteria
  • Pet dander
  • Dirt
  • Dried rodent urine
  • Plaster or wood particles
  • Hair
  • Fibers and lint

The better the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of the filter, the more particles are filtered from the air.

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Our job at DUCTZ is to ensure your home or business has clean, filtered air for a better, healthier life. One of the best ways to ensure your heater and air conditioner are filtering clean air throughout your home or business is to get your ducts and air filters cleaned on a regular basis. While cleaning your filters regularly is something you can do at home, cleaning the ducts of your central air system is much more difficult.Cleaning Dirty Air Filter

When Should I Clean the Ducts?

As a general rule, you should have professionals clean your ducts every three to five years. This is the minimum amount of time it will take for ducts to amass a good layer of dust and debris. However, this timeline could shorten depending on a few factors:

  • Age of the home or business
  • Pets in residence
  • People with respiratory illness in residence
  • People with allergies in residence
  • More dust in the home or business present
  • People who smoke in residence
  • Excessive moisture in the air

All these factors can increase the number of air pollutants in a home or business at any given time. If you find yourself in one or more of these scenarios, you might need to get your ducts cleaned much more often, especially if your health is a concern.

Indoor Air Quality and Health

The air quality in Denver, NC has been slowly getting worse. From 1999 to 2009, the air quality went from around 52 to around 42, ten points worse in ten years. Part of the job of your heater and air conditioner is to filter the air from outside and bring it into your home or business to regulate the temperature and humidity indoors. If your ducts haven’t been cleaned in some time, they do a less effective job of filtering pollutants from outside, and the extra buildup can cause added strain to your heater or air conditioner.

Additionally, you could be experiencing health issues as a result of dirty ducts and filters. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), short term health effects of exposure to poor air quality can include the following:

  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Sore or scratchy throat
  • Sneezing or stuffy nose
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Signs You Need to Clean Your Ducts

If you’re unsure whether your ducts have been cleaned recently, there are a few signs you could look for. Check your registers. Unscrew an easy-to-access register and take a quick peek inside your ducts. If you can see visible dust inside, it’s time to call DUCTZ of Uptown Charlotte and Lake Norman for air duct cleaning in Denver, NC. Additionally, if you notice an increase of dust overall in your home or business, it’s likely that the ducts are blowing in collected dust through the vents.

Another sign you might need air duct cleaning is an increase in allergy symptoms or trouble breathing. For example, even in springtime, you can tell your ducts need cleaning if you haven’t left the house but are still experiencing symptoms of hay fever.
