HVAC systems are often overlooked by homeowners until something goes wrong; however, there are a variety of reasons why it pays to have them, and your air ducts, cleaned regularly.
One of the primary motives is the accumulation of pollen, dust, and other airborne debris and allergens that are notorious for gathering within air ducts and on internal parts.
This buildup makes it more difficult for HVAC systems to run efficiently, which means higher energy bills for you. On top of this, there is also a greater likelihood that your HVAC system will breakdown entirely.
For these reasons and more, we provide full air duct cleaning services here at ServiceMaster Kwik Restore to those in the Milwaukee, WI, area.
Another contributing factor when it comes to the need for air duct cleaning is your home’s air quality itself. The accumulation of dust, pollen, and other airborne allergens means that every time your HVAC system runs, your air is worsening in quality.
Long term exposure to these conditions can result in allergies, asthma, and even respiratory infections.
Here at ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment and methodologies to fully clean your air ducts and HVAC system as a whole. This means lower energy costs for you, as well as cleaner air for you and your loved ones.
Air Duct Cleaning Options
In general, it is recommended to have your air ducts professionally cleaned every 2-5 years. This is why we offer two cleaning options:
- Maintenance Cleaning: This option is for homes that have had their air ducts cleaned within the past 5 years.
- Restorative Cleaning: This option is for homes that have not had their air ducts cleaned within the past 5 years.
The first option is a routine maintenance-style cleaning, while the second option is a restoration-style cleaning that may take a bit longer to complete.
There are certain factors that may contribute to your decision of when to get your air ducts cleaned, as 2-5 years is quite a lengthy window of time. Some of the situations that may warrant more frequent cleaning, or that may prompt a professional cleaning, include:
- If you live with smokers in the house.
- If you move into a new home.
- If you have recently completely home remodeling work.
- If you have pets (especially pets that shed).
- If you or a loved one has bad allergies or asthma.
If you fall under any of the above categories, or simply feel as though your home may be due for an air duct cleaning, then we encourage you to give us a call at 888 SM-KWIK1. Here at ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we are proud to service the local community in the Milwaukee, WI, area.
