We officially have entered the holiday season. With November creeping up on us, most of us have started planning in advance. But what if I told you that there is more planning you have to other than choosing your outfit , picking out a turkey, and making your invitation list that should be on your Thanksgiving to do list. Before you have everyone gathered around the table sharing what they are thankful for, do yourself a favor and go through our checklist that could indicate that you need to schedule an air duct cleaning with us. Trust me, you will be thankful you did.
1. Your air isn’t blowing as freely or strong as it once was
2. Visibility of mold
3. You can’t remember the last time you had your air ducts cleaned
4. Your air filters are visibly dirty
5. Your allergies are at an all-time high
6. Rodent Droppings are visible
7. You cant remember the last time you checked the carbon monoxide level of your home
If you went through this checklist and something resonated with you, even if it is just one scenario, we recommend that its time for an air duct cleaning. Let’s start with number one mentioned above. While having your family over you want everyone to be comfortable. If you air isn’t blowing as freely or strong as it once was that’s a sign of weak airflow. Don’t settle for weak air flow, this is a sign that the ductwork needs a good cleaning.
Nothing makes you lose your appetite than seeing mold. Don’t let this happen while in the middle of cutting the turkey. Visibility of mold is number two on the checklist. Exposure to mold can cause health problems to any one in the area. Even family members who don’t suffer from a mold allergy can and will be effected. Don’t have your guest leave your home feeling ill. It’s time to schedule an appointment so our technician can inspect the entire HVAC system.
If you are reading this and are saying “ I cant remember the last time my air ducts were cleaned.” or “ I didn’t know something like this had to be done.” This is definitely a sign to contact us. It is recommended that homeowners should have their air ducts cleaned once a year.
Besides mold, another allergen that people do not want to see while eating their pumpkin pie, is dirt. This brings me to number four. If your air filters are visibly dirty it is definitely time to clean your ducts. This is effecting the air quality in your home.
You don’t want germs being spread around the table. Moving on to number five, have you and your family been sneezing more than usual? You , your family, or house guests may notice an increased allergic reaction to pet dander, mold, dust and other allergens that are unfortunately circulating through the ductwork. This is a result of clogged duct work. It’s definitely time to improve your air quality. Solution? Schedule a cleaning to get rid of these allergens.
This may be the hardest point on the checklist to write about, but lets take a look at number six; rodent droppings. You don’t want this any day, let alone Thanksgiving. We are talking serious health risks to you and your family. If you have ever noticed rodent dropping inside your ducts, this is a sign of a rodent infestation. If you also have noticed insect husks this is a sign that these rodents have made your HVAC system their home. These are clear signs that its time to give us a phone call, ASAP!
Last but not least lets talk about the last point on the checklist, number seven. Unfortunately the carbon monoxide level of a home is the last thing on most people’s mind. For one, this is because carbon monoxide isn’t visible. However this doesn’t make it any less important. It’s getting cold out and during heating season, especially the beginning, if you ever use a fireplace, fire burning stove, or furnace the Environmental Protection Agency recommends everyone to have your fuel burning heat system inspected. Carbon Monoxide hazards can be eliminated if you just give us a call. We would love to give your system an inspection and make sure your family is healthy and safe during the cold weather.
