Duct Cleaning & Air Quality: Connecting the Dots
You may be concerned about the poor quality of indoor air in your North Stafford, VA home without understanding what is causing it. Like most homeowners, you probably don’t suspect that the ductwork attached to your HVAC system could be making you and your family members sick. When ductwork is not cleaned, it can collect bacteria, mold, dust, pollen, animal dropping and many other substances that are unhealthy for people to breathe.
If you have an allergy or asthma sufferer in your home, their symptoms will get worse until the ductwork is cleaned. That is because these airborne pollutants are released into the air every time you turn on your heating system or air conditioner. On average, these microscopic organisms get cycled through your home five times a day. Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning offers professional duct cleaning to help eliminate this health hazard while simultaneously improving the quality of your indoor air.
