Does duct cleaning solve your dust problem? Will you never have to dust your indoor living space after getting your ducts cleaned? This seems like it would be a very simple answer but it is more complex than you may think. There are local and national air duct cleaning companies “claiming” that if they use their service you will NEVER have to dust again. Think again. After having Amistee Air Duct Cleaning clean your duct system we can drastically reduce your indoor dust but we never like to say we can eliminate your dust. This would be a false and uneducated statement if we said we could eliminate your dust problem.
We have found that the duct system can contribute to more than 70% of the indoor dust. If you take a moment and think of indoor dust logically it makes more sense. If your ductwork is loaded with debris (construction dust or a buildup over years) than this will probably be blowing into your home. It is probably a good idea to get the ducts cleaned. This is a great way to reduce the amount of dust. We have some customers that say after we clean their home they instantly saw a reduction in the amount of household dust.
What is household dust? Dust is made up of many things in a home. Here is a list of possible sources of dust for you to consider.
- Dirty Ductwork
- Pet Dander or Hair
- Old Carpet That Is Breaking Down
- Skin Cells From Dry Skin (Think about adding a humidifier in your home)
- Outdoor Air (Many people open windows and call it “fresh air” but is it really FRESH??)
- Dirt Roads
- Construction Sites
- Disconnected Dryer Vent Pipe
- Folding Clothes That Have Been Washed
- Toilet Paper (When you rip it fibers become air born)
- Any Indoor Remodeling Project
- Clean Up Clutter
If you do choose to get your air ducts cleaned to help with a dust problem it MUST be done correctly in order to provide you with any results. The entire duct system must be cleaned, not a portion, not half, not just the vent but ALL the ducts.
