Duct cleaning is essential in preventing current and potential problems. Clogs, mold, mildew, fungus, gases, and other odors are all risks likely to be lurking the ductwork of home and businesses. Having the ductwork cleaned not only eliminates issues, but will guarantee furnaces, dryers, and other machinery run efficiently. This not only improves the environment, but the pocketbook as well. Furthermore, air duct cleaning services, furnace duct cleaning, and dryer vent cleaning improve the overall air quality allowing everyone to breathe easier.
The Odors Coming from the Ducts
Pets, cigarettes, and musty smells can all come from the ducts in homes and commercial buildings. Foul odors can be a nuisance, but they can also be dangerous. Mold and/or fungus are often present when the smell is musty. This can cause health issues that can be potentially life threatening if not addressed.
Another hazardous odor is gas. This may be a gas leak within the home that can have a strong odor, or there can be a possible carbon monoxide leak which will not smell. The professional (s) cleaning the ductwork can perform a duct odor source test to find this leak. Gas with odor may come from a heating system, wood stove, or coal stove that is not vented properly.
Although not very common, there are areas in the country where Chinese drywall was used in the original construction of homes. Unfortunately, homeowners often have not been aware of this and only find out when the house begins to smell of sulphur.
Perhaps not as dangerous, but still a nuisance and potential problem are animal smells. This may come from dander, hair, and waste around the home, but these items can linger from a dead animal in the ducts too.
