Considering air duct cleaning? What homeowners must know


(ARA) - Imagine 40 pounds of dust spread throughout your home, pushed into the air for you and your family to breathe up to seven times a day, via your heating and cooling system. Pretty gross thought, right? Well, unfortunately there is a high possibility that this is the exact situation in your house right now.

Through normal occupation in a home, a sizeable amount of contaminants, such as dander, dust and chemicals, are generated. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living, according to NADCA: The HVAC Inspection, Maintenance and Restoration Association. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated five to seven times per day, on average.

Your heating and cooling system can be considered the lungs of your home, taking in air and breathing it out. Generally, the cleaner the lungs, the cleaner the air in your home. That's why it's important to get a quality HVAC cleaning done on a regular basis. But beware, not everyone claiming to be an HVAC cleaning professional can do the job the right way.

There are some important things you need to consider so you avoid companies with unethical business practices or bad cleaning techniques:

* Beware of fly-by-night companies who use scare tactics. Instead of actually cleaning a customer's HVAC system, these scam companies squeeze money out of their clients by causing them anxiety and worry. Homeowners are told they have mold and other toxic substances in their systems - claims which are most likely false and used merely to extort money.
