  • Mold Mitigation and Remediation

Our technicians have the training, equipment and products to help identify the source of and eliminate offensive odors.

The Benefits of Air Duct & HVAC Cleaning

2/1/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO The Benefits of Air Duct & HVAC Cleaning Keeping ducts free of dust and debris may help reduce your energy bill and improve air quality in your home.

HVAC systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. The air inside your Western Montana home is full of tiny particles like dust, pollen and pet dander. When your furnace or air conditioner draws air, it also pulls in airborne particles.  Over time, these contaminants can build up inside the ducts, reducing air flow and re-circulating throughout your living space.

Like furnaces and air conditioners, air ducts require proper cleaning and maintenance to perform at their best. Keeping ducts free of dust and debris can also help reduce your energy bill and improve air quality in your home. More frequent duct cleaning is recommended if you have indoor pets, or are sensitive to indoor air quality. You should also have your ducts cleaned if you have recently renovated your home, as this will increase the amount of dust in your forced air system.

Air duct cleaning clears debris from your HVAC air ducts, registers, grilles, and other components of a HVAC system and provides these benefits for you and your home:

Creates a Cleaner Living Environment

Reduces Allergens and Irritants

Helps Everyone Breathe Easier

Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors

Improves Air Flow Efficiency

Duct cleaning is not an easy job. Doing it right takes specialized equipment in the hands of skilled professionals like ours at SERVPRO of Missoula. Call us today at 406-327-9500, for more information.
