In this blog entry, the expert Dallas ductwork cleaning service here at Power Clean Solutions will detail some major signs that indicate it’s time to get your Dallas, Texas ductwork and Dallas HVAC system cleaned.
Mold in Air Ducts
Breathing in mold spores can cause a host of respiratory diseases including asthma, allergies, or even more serious issues for elderly and immunocompromised people. If you suspect the presence of mold in your property, look into vents and shine a flashlight into air ducts. Look for any discoloration spots or blotches or growths – or a musty smell. Ask a local air duct cleaning service to do a visual inspection, as mold could easily be growing deeper in your duct system where you can’t see it. The top way to verify if mold is present is to have a sample of material you find tested in a professional laboratory. Keep in mind that if the source of moisture that assisted the mold growth in the first place isn’t handled, mold will probably come back after your air duct is cleaned.
Mold isn’t the only kind of living organism that can cause air duct issues. Vermin like rats, mice, termites, or other bugs or mammals can easily live in your air ducts, spreading disease through their droppings which get blown around your property through your ventilation system. Disgusting, right? Contact Power Clean Solutions right away for professional Dallas air duct cleaning service if you suspect this might be an issue.
Visible Debris Coming Out of Air Duct
Sometimes air vents get so clogged up that visible particles can be spotted getting ejected from the vents when the blower turns on. Needless to say, this indicates that it’s beyond time to get your air ducts cleaned. It’s estimated that about 80% percent of people in the United States have daily dust mite exposure, and 60% of people get exposed to pet dander. If these substances are so present in your vents that it can be seen densely blowing out of your vents, it can definitely cause you health issues, especially if you have asthma or allergies.
