With the exceptionally poor air quality that has resulted from the wildfires this past year, there is a greatly increased need for cleaning of HVAC systems in homes and businesses. If you own a forced-air or central air conditioning system, this can seem to be an overwhelming challenge, since much dirt, debris, and other waste can get caught up in ductwork, which is, of course, very hard to get into.
If you own a home or business with the type of HVAC system that includes significant ductwork, you might consider hiring a professional to clean out the ducts. This may involve connecting a machine that works like a vacuum to one end of the system, which will forcibly remove contaminants. Once that’s done, they’ll often feed specialized chemicals through the system which will coat the ductwork so that mold and fungus cannot grow. This can help to prevent respiratory or other significant health problems.
