Many homeowners would not think of letting a year go by without having their heating and cooling systems checked. What tends to receive less attention is the duct work used to move the forced air into each room of the house. For anyone who wants to ensure those ducts are working properly and providing the most benefits, it pays to have a professional come to the home and conduct an AC duct cleaning in Lakeland, FL at least every couple of years. Here are some of the reasons that regular cleaning does matter.
Getting Rid of the Pest Cemetery
As the years pass, different types of pests have a way of getting into the duct system and passing away. That can amount to quite a collection of dead spiders, roaches, rodents, and other pests. No one likes the idea of having forced air pass over all those carcasses. In order to get rid of them, the only real solution is to have a professional come to the home and conduct an AC Duct Cleaning in Lakeland, FL.
Stop the Sneezing and Watering Eyes
For people who tend to be sensitive, all those contaminants lurking in the air ducts can mean a lot of sneezing, coughing and watering eyes. This is because tiny fragments from the contaminants break off as the air is forced through the system. They end up in each of the rooms where it is easy to breathe them in. If some family members seem to be having more distress than usual, take that as a sign to have the ducts cleaned.
Getting Rid of Mold
The water heater tank burst and flooded the basement recently. While the heater is replaced and the water was extracted, there is still work to do. Along with treating the basement to get rid of any mold that developed, it pays to have the ducts flushed. That’s because mold spores likely make it into the duct system and are in the process of proliferating. Before the situation becomes especially harmful, flush the ducts and stop the problem in its tracks.
