Why You Should Keep Up with HVAC Cleaning

HVAC cleaning is that one thing in property maintenance that gets left off the list. After all, what’s out of sight is often out of mind. But just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there or affecting you.

We asked the Franchise Professionals at SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties about the benefits of HVAC cleaning and why homeowners and business owners alike should keep up with it. Here are there four reasons why.

 4 Benefits of HVAC Cleaning

 #1: Improved Performance

Over time, heavy build-up of dust and debris can restrict the flow of air from circulating in your home or business. This can cause your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a set temperature. When ducts are clogged with dust, the system will resort to spending more energy to force air throughout the duct system, leading to increased energy bills. Not only will routine HVAC cleaning help lower those costs, but it can also reduce wear on your system.

 #2: Removal of Allergens

Feeling a little sneezy? It could be the pollen on your shirt from your walk with the dog, or it could be pesky allergens and irritants lurking in your duct system ready to give you a runny nose. According to SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties, HVAC cleaning helps everyone breathe easier by reducing the number of allergens in your home or business.

Whether you’re a rental property, hotel, or school district, having clean air to breathe is important when various people congregate or come and go on vacation. Those who suffer from asthma or respiratory issues can be triggered by allergens in the duct system.

 #3: Eliminates Odors

From pets and cigarettes to mold and mildew, certain places have certain smells that can’t be covered up with a can of scented spray. An HVAC cleaning will help remove unpleasant odors that become trapped and circulate throughout a home or business. Even years of dust and debris in ductwork can produce a musty smell. SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties says that a detailed HVAC cleaning will remove these particles and lead to a cleaner space.

 #4: Creates a Cleaner Environment

Having your ducts professionally cleaned can help reduce years of dust that continuously circulate throughout your space, landing on furniture, shelving, and floors. In turn, this will lessen the amount of routine dusting and cleaning necessary to maintain a hygienic home.

In short, an HVAC cleaning once or twice a year can help you live, breathe, and feel better, whether at work, at home, or in school.
