The indoor air quality of your home and office can have an incredible impact on your health and general comfort. Allergens, dust, mold spores, and other irritants can cause persistent coughs, sneezing, and watery eyes. If you or your employees are suffering from these symptoms, then it might be time for you to schedule an air duct cleaning in your Augusta, Georgia home or office. 

Common Signs That it's Time for a Commercial or Residential Air Duct Cleaning

Residential and commercial air ducts typically need to be cleaned once every three to five years. However, if your home or office resides in an allergy-prone area, then you might need to schedule more frequent cleanings or suffer the cost to your body and health. The most common signs that it's time for a residential air duct cleaning or commercial air duct cleaning include: 

  • Verified mold growth – Ducts need to be properly cleaned and sanitized if your technician discovers and verifies mold growth. In addition to cleaning your ducts, your professional technician should also check your AC system to ensure that mold has not formed in its interior.
  • Pest infestations – Do you have insects or rodents living or traveling through your air ducts? Common pests can spread allergens, viruses, and diseases, which is why your ducts need to be cleaned if you discover that pests are living or traveling throughout your home or office's air ducts.
  • Heightened level of allergies – Dirty air ducts can increase allergy symptoms, especially in individuals who suffer from asthma and other common health conditions. In addition to cleaning your air ducts, you should also have your HVAC system inspected to ensure that it is working properly and that the air filter is clean. 
  • Excessive levels of debris or dust – Clogged air ducts can reduce airflow throughout your home or office. The good news is that by cleaning the air ducts and replacing the air filter on your HVAC system, you can improve airflow, reduce allergens, and lower in-home dust levels.
