As of this writing, the global pandemic still isn’t over. Even after this one ends, experts do tell us that other pandemics could rise up to challenge us in the future.
That’s why many of our customers ask us if our air duct cleaning service can help them keep Covid and other diseases out of their homes.
Here’s what you need to know.
Good ventilation does help you prevent the spread of infectious disease.
Experts don’t know how much ventilation it takes to make a home or a building safer. They just know more is better. The EPA states:
“Ensuring proper ventilation with outside air can help reduce indoor airborne contaminants, including SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, and other viruses.”
Obviously dirty air ducts provide less ventilation. If your air is being forced through ducts that are mostly deep tunnels of lint, dust, and mold then it isn’t being ventilated effectively.
Once the ducts are clean, it’s important to invest in a good filtration device.
One of the most efficient ways to do that is to install a UV light filter. UV light does kill Covid-19, which means you can make your home a lot safer with this very small, very inexpensive addition to your ducts.
This is a service we provide, and it offers many more benefits besides simply killing Covid. It also kills other pathogens, including bacteria, mold, and mildew. That means you get to enjoy a healthier home overall.
Without filtration, the virus just keeps moving through your system. Spreading the virus around doesn’t help anyone stay healthier! Any honest company will tell you that air duct cleaning alone will not make your home healthier or safety. Duct cleaning and filtration can do that, however.
Cleaning and UV light won’t help much if your air ducts need replacement.
Broken air ducts can’t ventilate your home properly. Old, inefficient, or broken ducts need to be replaced entirely, not just cleaned. Then you can fix them up with a modern filtration system and trust that they’ll stay clean for at least the next three to five years.
After that, they’ll need to be cleaned like any other ducts, but they should still be in tip top shape. The ducts we install are durable and long-lasting.
You shouldn’t rely on ducts alone.
Even if you get your air ducts cleaned and filtered it’s vital for you to pay attention to other Covid-19 safety guidelines, including vaccination, masking, and social distancing. These measures, plus regular cleaning, are great ways to keep your family safe.
