3 Air Duct Cleaning Tips

 Many Canadians who have dealt with these unsavoury air duct cleaning companies are left with a bad taste in their mouths, sometimes so much so that they will swear off these cleaning services for life. This is a bad move that has serious implications for legitimate air duct cleaning companies and Canadian homeowners alike.

Don’t let the scam artists sour your idea of air duct cleaners! Air duct cleaning should be an important part of your home maintenance program. Dirty air ducts can cost you serious utility money by forcing your HVAC system to work much harder, and will also expose you and your loved ones to airborne allergens and pollutants.

Whether you intend to avoid scams by cleaning air ducts on your own, or need some authoritative information to build your faith in the Steamatic cleaners, then read on to learn 3 air duct cleaning tips!

  • Assess the situation for mold. Mold will grow wherever moisture is allowed to accumulate without proper air circulation. If mold takes a hold in your air ducts, you are essentially spraying spores into your living spaces every second. If you identify or suspect mold growth, you should contact Steamatic mold removal specialists immediately. Trying to remove it on your own without the proper tools and training can dislodge spores and put you at higher risk.
  • Clear out any clogs and debris.Clogs can be caused by insects, rodents, and other detritus that gets caught in your air ducts. Clogs are especially likely around corners where space is tighter. If clogs are caused by pests or insects, you should proceed with even more urgency, since your HVAC system will essentially be circulating decaying organic matter through your home.
  • Find the cause of any excess moisture. If you notice mold growth, or even just excessive amounts of moisture, clearing off the affected area will not be enough. You will need to more than treat the mold “symptoms,” and actually identify the cause of this excess moisture or humidity. If you are unsure how to proceed, Steamatic can help!

As is often the case in home maintenance, these steps are easier said than done. If you encounter any trouble along the way, know that Steamatic is standing by 24/7 to help!
