HVAC Cleaning benefits by SERVPRO of Chemung & Schuyler Counties
Sneezing like crazy? Coughing uncontrollably? Are your itchy and scratchy?
Maybe the air you’re breathing in your home isn’t as clean as you thought. Believe it or not ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. But have no fear - the SERVPRO of Chemung & Schuyler Counties team is here!
If your HVAC system has been running for a while without any attention it could be circulating dust, pollen, odors, dirt, debris and more. If no one in your household suffers from allergies or unexplained symptoms or illnesses and if, after a visual inspection of the inside of the ducts, you see no indication that your air ducts are contaminated with large deposits of dust or mold... having your air ducts cleaned is probably unnecessary. It is normal for the return registers to get dusty as dust-laden air is pulled through the grate. This does not indicate that your air ducts are contaminated with heavy deposits of dust or debris; the registers can be easily vacuumed or removed and cleaned.
On the other hand, if family members are experiencing unusual or unexplained symptoms or illnesses that you think might be related to your home environment, you should discuss the situation with your doctor.
EPA has published the following publications for guidance on identifying possible indoor air quality problems and ways to prevent or fix them.
