We asked Patty Clisham, owner of Ductz of West St. Louis, why it’s important to have the ducts cleaned in your commercial or residential building. Often forgotten, duct cleaning can improve indoor air quality and building cleanliness. Below are 3 reasons to have your ducts cleaned regularly:

  • Rid your ducts of indoor air pollutants: Ducts can contain all kinds of things like dust, debris, insects and their remains, rodents, mold, dander and bacteria, just to mention a few. Cleaning the ducts will help rid your system of these things.
  • Improve indoor air quality: Some researchers believe indoor air pollution contributes to more than half of all illnesses. The moist temperate environment of your HVAC system is an ideal habitat for fungi and bacteria to flourish.
  • Protect your investment: The HVAC system is the most expensive mechanical equipment in your building. Cleaning and preventative mainenance can extend the life of your equipment by years. Ninety percent of HVAC system failures are caused by dust and dirt. Manufacturer’s recommend that you should have a professional heating and cooling contractor service and inspect your system at least every 2 years.

Thanks Patty and Ductz for the information!
