How Duct Cleaning Enhances Your Home's Comfort

September 25, 2015

It’s a question that homeowners in Knoxville, and all over, seem to find themselves pondering: what exactly is duct cleaning, what does it do, and why is it important for me and my home?

We’re here to help address those questions to make the decision-making process a little simpler next time you’re thinking about ways to improve your home’s air quality.

What is duct cleaning?

Duct cleaning is the removal of dirt, articles and debris inside your home’s air distribution system (the ductwork). Duct cleaning normally involves special tools, vacuums and a process to free dirt and debris that’s adhering to the interior walls of the ducts before being taken out with a powerful vacuum system. This varies from your routine air conditioner or furnace maintenance service that focuses primarily on your heating and air conditioning equipment.

What does ducting cleaning do?

Duct cleaning can help your home and indoor air quality in a variety of ways, in addition to these:

  • Removing dirt and dust from your home and the air you breathe

  • Eliminating germs and bacteria caused by too much dirt

  • Increasing your heating and air conditioning system’s energy efficiency

  • Possibly easing the symptoms of seasonal allergies inside the home
