Indoor air quality plays a significant role in the comfort of your home or workplace. Neglecting regular duct cleaning can lead to a host of problems, affecting not only your air quality but also the efficiency of your HVAC system. In this blog post, SERVPRO explores the consequences of not having regular duct cleaning and highlights how our skilled technicians can help restore clean indoor air.

Consequences of Neglecting Duct Cleaning:

1. Poor Indoor Air Quality:

  • Dust, debris, allergens, and pollutants accumulate in your ducts over time. When the HVAC system operates, these contaminants can be circulated throughout your living or working space, leading to poor indoor air quality.

2. Reduced HVAC Efficiency:

  • Accumulated debris in ducts can obstruct airflow, making your HVAC system work harder to maintain temperature control. This can lead to higher energy bills and increased wear and tear on your equipment.

3. Unpleasant Odors:

  • Dust, mold, and bacteria in dirty ducts can produce unpleasant odors, affecting the overall comfort of your space.
