What Air Duct Maintenance Should I Be Doing as a Homeowner?

GreenPro: Air Duct Cleaners




As a homeowner, maintenance and upkeep of your home are extremely important. Maintaining clean air ducts is essential to ensure that your home will have the best air quality. Over time it is very common for air ducts to collect dirt and dust from the everyday use of the house. You may have to contact experts to assist with system cleanings.

We are committed to helping customers clean, restore, and maintain clean air ducts for their homes. When we inspect and clean out air ducts, we work over the entire system. We will come in and clean the ducts, A/C coils, registers, grills, air plenum, blower motor/housing, air filter, and the air cleaner.   

Why Should Homeowners Clean Our Air Ducts?

Ductwork within your home can become very dirty if you wait too long. Dust, lint, hair, and dirt accumulate from your regular everyday life at home. Not to mention other contributions to a dirty air duct can be from pets, cigarette smoke, any home renovation, and home remodeling.

A routine duct cleaning is ideal for those that suffer from any allergy or asthma symptoms. If you are unsure if your air ducts need a cleaning, the best way to check would be to remove a floor or wall register. If you notice major clumps of dust/dirt behind the covers, it may be time for a full cleaning.  If you’re unsure about making the call for yourself, you may always contact us for a visit.

When owning your own home, there are many chores and fixer-up jobs that need to be done to keep your house in tip-top shape.
 


One chore you may have thought about but just can’t seem to make yourself do is attic clean-up! Many items may have piled up over the years and you don’t know where to begin or what to do. It’s a job that will not be fun but is necessary!

ATTIC CLEAN UP TIPS

The following are some tips to help you get started:

1. Dusting – Get your dusting wand out and dust all the cracks and crevices and visible surfaces. Cobwebs that have collected also need to be dusted to keep your attic spider-free!

2. Check for Moisture – Make sure no moisture is seeping through the walls because much damage can occur as well as create unhealthy air. This problem needs to be eliminated!

3. Remove Debris and Trash – Take a large trash bag with you to clean up trash lying around and put more items into fewer boxes to give you more space and less clutter. Plastic tubs are a wise choice, especially if there is moisture present, so your belongings stay dry and in good condition.

Things to Know About Water Damage

If you have a leaky roof or you have a pipe that has been dripping and you have not addressed it, you need to know that it is not safe to ignore this problem. 




While you may think that it is a minor problem, the truth is that it can quickly cause larger problems. In just a few weeks or months, you could be dealing with a problem that you will have to pay a lot of money to fix.


5 Things to Know About Water Damage



Here are five things that you should be aware of with water damage:

• Repair quickly. When you have water coming from somewhere into your home, you will want to fix it quickly. It can be easy to ignore but it will get more expensive as time goes on. A simple leaky pipe could leave you having to not only contact a plumber but contacting a contractor to rebuild floors and walls. For some people, they waited too long and things like their bathtub fell in, leading to further costly repairs. Do yourself a favor and get a professional out to address the problem as soon as you see it.

• Insurance. Unfortunately, there are many people who have paid into their insurance policies only to find out that their policy will not cover the damage done by water. Your insurance company is more likely to pay for a minor problem such as a leaky roof when it is first discovered.

• Selling. A home that has had water damage is much harder to sell than one that has not. If you decide to sell your home due to the water damage, you may be forced to take a lower price or be forced to repair the damage before your home is ever sold. Potential buyers are less likely to purchase a home that has been the victim of water damage, no matter the cause.

• Structural. A leaky roof can cause extreme structural damage in your home. In some cases, people have ignored roof leaks and their roof has collapsed. Roof leaks can also cause damage into your walls and reach your floors. Left untreated, you could end up paying more than your home’s worth in repairs.

• Mold. Where there’s water, there’s mold, if it is left long enough. When you have wet floors and drywall, mold can set in quickly. Within 24 hours your walls and other structures could be growing mold. People with asthma and allergies can have a reaction quickly to this growing mold. There are studies that show that this mold can also cause problems even if you are completely healthy. Once mold sets into your house, it can be hard to get out.

Water can damage your home quickly. Therefore, you need to ensure that you fix any leaks that you might have and why you need to inspect your home frequently for any leaks. If you see any leaks or signs of water damage, you need to address the situation quickly for the sake of your health and your bank account.

Debris Commonly Found in Crawl Spaces



One of the last places you might think about maintaining in your home is your crawl space.



Most people tend to not worry about that area until something happens to make them worry about it. The truth is that you really should get it cleaned and addressed by a professional who does crawl space clean up.

Debris Found in Crawl Spaces

The most common debris found is cardboard and lumber that was left over from the construction of your home. This lumber and cardboard can attract rodents and insects. Insects like termites may be attracted and can lead to damage to your home. Another common find in crawl spaces in insulation. This insulation can be home to rodents and insects and help to increase the population. Both of these kinds of debris can lead to further problems.

Mold and Mildew

The debris found in your crawl space can lead to mold and mildew build up. In fact, many people start to find that they have an odor coming from their home and they cannot figure out where it is at. They may spend a fortune trying to treat the smell only to still have it going on. The mold and mildew can settle in because of moisture under your home or even leaky pipes.

This mold and mildew can put you and your family’s health at risk. For instance, mold in particular may bother allergies. If you have someone with asthma in your home, it could lead to a worsening of their symptoms. Studies have now shown that mold specifically black mold, can be very toxic to your health. There are many people that may have breathing problems from black mold.

Over time, mold can spread and if the moisture problem is ongoing, it could spread to other parts of your home. This is why getting your crawl space cleaned is so important.

What Happens During Cleaning?

You may think that you can go under and clean your crawl space yourself but the truth is that it is a job that should be done by a professional that knows what they are doing. Hiring a reputable company will help to ensure that you get the best experience and results.

During the cleaning, the company will clean out and remove all the debris. After that, insulation will be put inside your crawl space to help maintain the heat in your home and to help avoid any more issues. After that, a vapor barrier will be put in your crawl space making it no longer smell and no longer, a health issue.

If you haven’t already, you should look into getting your crawl space cleaned and repaired by a reputable company. This will help to alleviate any problems in the future and help to save you money.

What Increases the Need for Air Duct Cleaning?

Ductwork has a series of connected tubes which distribute heat or cooled air to other rooms throughout the home. And that's why we advise our customer to have the ductwork checked ever so often.





While customers may experience few air duct problems, there are certain things that can increase the need for air duct cleaning. Here are a few things that us know that our customer needs an air duct cleaning.

Mold
One of the first things we check for is mold. Mold can definitely increase the need for an air duct cleaning because it can lead to serious health and breathing problems. When we clean the air ducts, it will remove the moisture problem and make the environment much safer.

Rodent or Insects
Another thing that increases the need for air duct cleaning is the presence of rodents or insects. When we perform our inspections we will often notice the shells or husks that have been left behind from the insects. We may find small scratches or even droppings along the ducts. Our company ensures that air ducts are as clean as possible so that homeowners can avoid these types of infestations.

Dirt and Debris
Another problem that can increase the need for air duct cleaning is lots of dirt and debris. Our company will often notice that air ducts have accumulated a significant amount of dirt and debris over time which causes them to become clogged. These types of clogs can easily affect how efficiently the home conducts the airflow. This can also lead to a release of pollutants into the atmosphere. When we remove the dirt and debris, it can help to eliminate this problem.

Carbon Monoxide
Perhaps one of the most dangerous things that increase the need for air duct cleaning is the level of carbon dioxide. We often find that homeowners who have fuel burning stoves, furnaces or fireplaces are much more likely to feel the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning. Our company does everything within our power to combat this particular hazard by giving our clients' air ducts a thorough cleaning. In fact, Environmental Protection Agency strongly suggests that homeowners have their air ducts inspected, cleaned, or repaired before each heating season.

Conclusion
There are a lot of homeowners who do not understand the importance of having their air ducts cleaned. And unfortunately, this can cause a lot of problems in the long run. Not only can it cost a lot of money, but it can also have a huge impact on the health of the family. We provide air duct cleaning in hopes of eliminating these problems altogether. So get in contact with us to learn more about our air duct cleaning process and what we offer.
