You’ve been trying to decide whether your home needs air duct cleaning. The service really wasn’t on your radar, but a friend recently mentioned getting his new home’s ducts cleaned. How do you know if your home’s HVAC needs a thorough cleaning? Consider these top-three reasons why you should have our crew at CRNE’s Environmental Control clean your air ducts.
1. You haven’t had it done in seven years.
Industry standard for air duct cleaning is every five to seven years. Over time, it’s easy for your home’s duct system to accumulate dust, dirt, and other allergens. By staying on a steady five to seven year cleaning regimen, you can avoid circulating these things though your home.
2. You just moved into a new-to-you house.
You recently acquired a new home in the greater Northbrook, IL, area. While the home is new to you, it was previously occupied by other tenants—who may or may not have had the air ducts cleaned. Because you don’t know what kind of dirt, pet dander, dust, and more could be in your HVAC, it’s best to have it cleaned and give your home a fresh start.
3. Your allergies are flaring up.
If someone in your family has allergies, it’s a good idea to keep your ductwork clean. Dust, molds, and other allergens can easily accumulate in your system and just circulate throughout your home’s rooms. You can minimize the effect of indoor allergies by getting your regular air duct cleaning.
At CRNE, we thoroughly clean your HVAC ductwork with a specialized technique and then also apply sanitizer to kill any remaining (or future) molds or bacteria. You can breathe easy when we’re done.
