While it’s tempting to limit cleaning solely to vacuuming floors, dusting, and wiping down glass, counters, and stainless steel surfaces, cleaning air ducts and dryer vents should also be on your list. Often overlooked, these areas require special attention because they affect air quality at work and home.
Dirty air vents can cause the following problems:
- Poor Indoor Air Quality – Stuffy air, unpleasant odours, inadequate temperature, and unsatisfactory humidity levels are signs of poor indoor air quality. This can affect your comfort and have an negative impact on overall quality of life.
- Health Issues – Accumulated dust and debris in uncleaned air ducts and dryers can cause or exacerbate respiratory problems, asthma, sinusitis, and skin allergies.
- Pest Infestation – Creatures like rats and cockroaches are attracted to dark and dank areas, including damp, mould-ridden air ducts. Their presence can aggravate existing health issues and increase risk of contracting certain diseases.
- Damage to HVAC – Blockages in air vents prevent HVAC from sufficiently regulating air flow, temperature, and humidity. This will cause the system to work even harder, shortening its lifespan, and increasing energy bills.
Avoid these problems by having your air ducts and dryers inspected and cleaned regularly.
