Signs You Need Commercial Duct Cleaning
You cannot easily see the inside of the ducts of your building, even in rooms where the ductwork in the ceiling is exposed. This makes it difficult to get a good idea of the cleanliness of the ductwork interior so you’ll know when to contact professionals for cleaning. There are some signs you can watch for, however, that will tell you it’s time to call AAP Home Services to schedule a duct cleaning appointment.
An increase in your bills for heating and cooling that you cannot attribute to reasons such as a change in the seasons or a mechanical malfunction often indicates that dirt, dust, and carpet and furniture fibers inside the ducts have started to create too much airflow resistance. It only takes a thin layer of dust to begin to place friction against airflow and cause a rise in strain for the HVAC system. Call for duct cleaners to look into the situation when your bills start to rise.
An increase in allergy and asthma symptoms among employees will also provide a clue that the air is filled with contamination coming from a clogged ventilation system. If you also notice that keeping the work spaces of the building free from dust is growing harder and more time–consuming, then it’s probably time to arrange for duct cleaning.
You should arrange for duct cleaning every one to three years regardless: the airtight nature of the ducts means they will naturally begin to trap a layer of dust just from the air that circulates through them every day. Talk to your commercial duct cleaning specialists to discover what is the ideal schedule for routine duct cleaning to protect your HVAC system and indoor air quality.
