Air Duct Cleaning Helps Air Flow

Air duct cleaning can do more than just improve your air quality and remove contaminants from your ventilation system.  Duct cleaning can also remove any blockage found in the duct system.  Amistee Air Duct Cleaning has found blockages more than just your typical dirt and dust.  Usually something was put into the ductwork by a child or family member.  We have found shoes, shirts, blankets and even more creating blockages for air flow.

On top of the unusual blockage inside of the ductwork, Amistee also finds many dampers inside of the ductwork to be closed upon inspection.  For any air duct cleaning all dampers must be opened in order to perform a proper cleaning.  In many cases, customers experience better air flow after an air duct cleaning.

If a homeowner or business owner chooses to hire a company that does not have an understanding of the many different components of an HVAC system and does not have the correct equipment to provide a thorough cleaning, they run the risk of causing damage to the ductwork and the heating and cooling equipment in their home.  We encourage those that are interested in having the ductwork cleaned in their home or business to make sure to ask what equipment is going be used and what is involved in the process.  A vehicle with a vacuum-mounted system has the proper suction to provide a complete vent cleaning and properly remove all the debris and pollutants that have built up with the ductwork.

Pollutants in Your Home – Air Duct Cleaning Southeast MI

Indoor air quality is considered to be the fourth greatest pollution threat to Americans by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Even if you can never see, and can’t always smell, the chemicals inside your home, they are there.  It comes from cleaning products, drycleaning chemicals, plastic products like computer keyboards, furniture, paint, carpeting and more.

Some tips to help keep these contaminates from polluting your house are as follows:

Look for certifications. Certifications for low chemical emissions are in their infancy, but the more people who buy and request certified products, the more there will be.  Greenguard, part of Underwriters Laboratories, certifies furniture, paint, and other office and household products.  Scientific Certification Systems is another certifier.  And, for carpet, you can look for the “Green Label Plus” created by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI).

Choose unscented products. Many manufacturers make both scented and unscented versions of their products.  Always choose the unscented ones.

Avoid pressed wood. Pressed wood and wood composite materials are manufactured using strong glues that often contain volatile organic compounds.

Unwrap. When you buy new furniture, unpackage it outdoors and let it sit outside for at least one week to air out. Similarly, make sure to unwrap your dry-cleaning outdoors before bringing it into your house.

Ventilate. Try to paint in the spring and fall when you can comfortably leave your windows open for ventilation.  Same goes for new furniture or cabinetry.  Keep your windows open for a couple of weeks, if possible.

Paint first. It’s a good idea to paint your home first, then ventilate for several days before installing new carpeting and other textiles.  That’s because these products can absorb chemicals from the paint and re-release them into the air over time.

Buy used. Chemical emissions are at their highest when a product is brand new, so one solution is to buy used furniture that has already off-gassed in somebody else’s house.  (Unless that used furniture has just been refinished.)  Just be careful, because you want the latest safety features in things like baby cribs.  And you should look for furniture built after 1978, when lead paint was banned.
