Most people don’t put a lot of thought into the ductwork in their El Paso, Texas, and don’t realize the many benefits of having them cleaned. If your home is dusty, cleaning your ductwork can help eliminate that excessive dust.
The Benefits of Duct Cleaning
If you have central air, all the air goes through your ducts before entering your home. If dust has built up in your ducts, it’s more likely to blow that dust into your home, affecting your air quality. Getting your ducts cleaned will help eliminate the excess dust in your home by blowing out any dirt, dust, and debris trapped in your ductwork. If dust is accumulating in your home, there’s likely much more sitting in your ductwork. You also help your air filter do a better job since the dust won’t keep clogging it up.
It’s not just dust that duct cleaning helps. Many times bugs seek refuge in your ducts, and you may have an infestation without realizing it. Other creepy critters like small rodents may also decide to set up camp in your ductwork. If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in a while, you may not realize all the roommates living there that need to be evicted.
Other Ways to Prevent Dust
Cleaning your ductwork is an excellent start to keeping your home dust free, but you can help your cause through regular vacuuming and dusting with a wet rag or a magnetic duster. Regular dusting moves the dust around, so you don’t see it, but it’s still in your home and the air. Make sure your home is adequately ventilated and try to open the windows on milder days. Running the fan setting on your thermostat instead of auto can also help eliminate dust. Finally, make sure to change your air filter regularly and get routine maintenance for your system.
