AIR DUCT CLEANING TORONTO | Let’s clear the air

According to the national Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the average six-room house collects 40 pounds of dirt, dust and allergens in its air ducts each year. That’s a big problem, considering that 40,000 dust mites can thrive in only one ounce of dust. Those little dust “bunnies” contain a host of unhealthy bacteria, fungi and mold. The EPA estimates indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Even worse, the contaminated air circulates throughout your house every time the heating or cooling system kicks on.

The build-up of dirt and debris prevents the air from flowing freely throughout the ventilation system. That means it works harder and costs more to operate. Over time, the problem only gets worse.

Checking and changing filters, keeping systems maintained,  having regular inspections, and ensuring moisture don’t get in are more important. Here are some reasons to have your air ducts cleaned:

  • Renovation: If your home has been remodeled your ductwork may need to be cleaned.  Dangerous dust and debris may become lodged inside the duct work.
  • Animals: If there’s evidence of animal infestation or nesting in your ducts or HVAC system, have the animals removed then clean the duct work and HVAC unit.
  • Mold: If there is visible mold growth inside the duct work, the ducts and HVAC system should be cleaned.
  • Contaminants: If noticeable debris, pet hair, odors, or other contaminants are being released into the room through the ducts after the registers have been cleaned and vacuumed; then the ducts may need to be cleaned.
  • Illness: If someone in your family is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.
